T Hooks are used when installing a ceiling fan on an uneven ceiling surface, typically when there is a ceiling rose. A common problem that renovators encounter when doing refits in federation housing is when the owner would like to install ceiling fans but would also like to keep an existing ceiling rose. Generally speaking, ceiling roses are not deep enough to secure a ceiling fan. The fan must be secured to a fix mounting in the ceiling instead and a t-hook allows for this.
Important T-Hook Notice
This component is a Hunter Pacfic product. As a consequence you may find that it may not perfectly align with all ceiling fans as they are designed for Hunter Pacific ceiling fan brackets. Despite this they are fairly easy to modify. E.g. your installing electrician may need to simply drill two new screw holes to tailor it to the bracket. This will all be hidden under the top canopy of the ceiling fan.
This T-Hook allows a single hole to be made through the existing ceiling rose. This reduces the impact on the appearance if the owner decides to remove the ceiling fan at a later stage.
How T-Hooks work?
The T-Hook threads through a single hole in the centre of the ceiling rose. The rod is secured to the joist or the fixed beam located in the roof above the ceiling rose. A plate on the bottom of the rod allows for the mounting bracket to be secured without damaging the existing ceiling rose. The fan can then be mounted onto this plate as per the standard installation instructions.
