- Pretty good overall Review by Shovel1978head
Value Quality Price
This fan had no signs of anything to do with Catch Cover on it. In fact, the only markings on it at all appeared to be a..... wait for it..... a Chinese name!!
BUT I must admit, Made in Minnesota or Hashimota it still works great. Especially for the price. I only gave the quality 3 stars because I didn't like the idea of it hanging by the wire on a hook so I removed the top cap and the wire, made a nice 6 inch octagon out of pine then I bought some longer screws the same size threads and drilled the octagon in the center for the wires then for the screws. Stacked some 1/4" fender washers on top of the fan with the wires sticking through them ( to keep the shaft of the fan from pushing up into the canopy) screwed the fan to the wood and screwed the wood to the ceiling of my fishouse. I had wired it for a fan when I built it so all the wires are concealed in the ceiling and splices are under the octagon. Now the fan is flush mounted on my ceiling much like the ones in your home.
