I removed a fan from the ceiling and noticed this pole in the picture below. I'm wondering what to do with this if I want to install a flat back LED light fixture. Should I cut it or is there a cover I can use?
Remove the four drywall screws in the existing bracket and remove it. Then see about removing the pipe, it might just be part of the bracket. If there is an electrical box up there you can mount the led fixture. If not, you'll have to install one. Was the fan controlled by a wall switch or a pull chain?
