As I have already worked on 4 out of 5 ceiling fans I have put up so far (previous question). Now I am going to put the last one up. I need your help on this one.
However, one of them I had a light fixuture hanging on the ceiling wall that looks like this:
So when I took this light fixture out and look at the ceiling wall to see what is inside and here is what I found:
The one I have look much like this which has slides:
But the problem is it is very wide and when I put my hand in the hold to find the nearest wood and there is no wood there.
My question here is do I need to replace with the different ceiling fan support box with brace kit I bought from Home Depot a few weeks ago ? This one is different than the one above and it is heavy.
Should I replace the old brace with the slides with the new one or should I just leave it and put it up?
