comment How can I replace a ceiling fan light pull chain?
@LonnieEWeck After looking at your pictures, it appears there is already a pull chain connected to the light. Are you trying to replace the existing pull chain, or install a second pull chain?

@LonnieEWeck You don't have enough reputation to upload the images directly. If you upload them to imgur and post a link to them in a comment, a higher rep user can edit them into the question.

You might try contacting the manufacturer, as it appears their website is down (under construction).

This site could be a good resource, if you asked the right question.

comment Can I put acoustical putty *inside* the electrical box rather than around the outside?
The first problem could be not enough open space in the box for the wires and device. In this situation you'll count each conductor entering the box as 1 (1 hot + 1 neutral = 2), all grounding conductors in the box count as 1 (3). The device counts as 2, so your box fill is 5. If you're using #14 wire you'll multiply by 2 (for #12 multiply by 2.25), which will tell you how many cubic inches of space you need inside the box (10 Cu.in. in this case). The other problem you'll have, is proximity to combustible materials.
