Is the a mounting system to install a paddle fan thru a dropped ceiling?I've been in this trade for 50 years and I have to admit I have never seen one.I checked google but didn't find any thing.

Yeah, Arlington 'stole' my design.

Presented as a solution while at Rex Moore.

Now their ad copy reads exactly like my buddies first reaction: "This'll save us 30 minutes on each install."

Don't cha love the turnbuckle trick? That took hours to pop into my head.

BTW, any patent application can be refuted by examining my old work... it's 32 months old now.
