The Westinghouse 0110000 Saf-T-Brace allows you to safely install your ceiling fan or lighting fixture in three easy steps--without having to access attic space. Ideal for installation during new construction or remodeling, the mounting brace can be installed in finished ceilings through a 4-inch hole. This brace is compatible with ceiling fans up to 70 pounds. The Saf-T-Brace comes with everything you need for installation, including easy-to-follow instructions. The brace's three teeth easily twist and lock into the ceiling joists and its square tube allows for easy turning and adjustment. For added ease, the electrical box can be positioned anywhere on the brace to fit your project needs. It works with existing ceiling joists between 16 and 24 inches wide. The brace's 15-1/2 cubic-inch, 1-1/2 inch, dual-mount electrical box provides 8-32 threads for cover plates and lightweight lighting fixtures and 10-24 threads for ceiling fans and chandeliers. It also includes a Saf-T-Cap to protect bolts and wires during drywall installation and painting in a retail colored box. This brace is UL/CUL listed to support light fixtures up to 150 pounds on 16-inch centers and 50 pounds on 24-inch centers. It supports fans up to 70 pounds. Product reference number 01100.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The bad news is that when extended to its maximum stated usage for bracing between joists spaced at 24" (600mm) their is insufficient threaded rod left in the tube to prevent the support from being unstable, the whole assembly bows up or down.
Based on my experience I would not recommend using this brace for 24" (600mm) spaced joists, however your application is closer to 20"(500mm) then It would probably be a good solution for price paid.
I bought two, installed one .....it did not meet my needs & had to find a more traditional install.
The second unit is new unused in box unable to be used due to its limitations as listed above.

I saw something similar to this ceiling brace at Home Depot, but didn't recognize the company name and had no reviews, so I stuck to the Westinghouse brand given the positive reviews.
Installing the brace didn't take too long, but I found out that my ceiling distance between the joist was less than the standard 16" and one of the joist (if it is even a joist) was not flush. So it took me about 2 hours to install largely due to my own house design. Quick note - if your joist distance is less than 16" you can cut the tube and rod to fit your needs. Hint - I spent over 1 hr using a metal hacksaw blade to cut through the rod - the rod must have hardened steel! Just get a metal reciprocating saw blade - I cut through that sucker in 30 secs! The tube is alluminum, so a hacksaw will cut through it in 1-2mins. Once I had the tube and rod the right length and I addressed the flush issue - installing it was easy! It was a bit challenging as I twisted the rod, the triangle end turned as well too. Be careful in how you mount it to make sure it is parallel with the ceiling. Of note - do not overturn the tube with the wrench! The instructions says to only use the wrench for a final tightening, but I think I went overboard and used the wrench too much!
Once the rod was installed, mounting the elecrical box was easy. I actually lost the magnet that came with it, but I was still able to mount it without the magnet.
So far ,the ceiling fan is working, no wobbles so far - so this Westinghouse fan brace seems to be doing the trick! I am quite surprised that a simple brace can hold so much weight!
Mine came In broken! It took a few days to get to me and I didn’t want to wait for another- as usual Amazon customer service was great, they offered a discount if I wanted to try And if it didn’t work I could return it.
The corner plastic but in the pic, may not seem important, but when you are twisting the brace in place it stops it from flipping, so it took me a lot longer to do it but once it’s in place and gripped the wood it’s not as important.
I eventually made it work perfectly. So aside from the broken piece this bracket is an amazing piece of innovation!
I purchased a few to install some ceiling fans, i was worried because by ceiling joists are ~24 inches apart, and that is approaching the limit of the brace - but the brace extended to meet the two joists and attached retaining a good amount of strength/ support for the ceiling fan.
Note that if you extend the bar to maximum limit, it does reduce the weight of the fan you can put on there. Unless you are mounting an industrial fan, this should not apply to you. All 3 of these bars had to mounted at maximum stretch and my fans operate perfectly. No wobble, no noise whatsoever.
