My fantastic fan opening tool
I must be vertically challenged because I can't reach the knob to open my fantastic fan. I even have trouble reaching it from a step stool. Obviously a tool was needed.
I made the tool from the following materials:
3/4" PVC pipe, length to suit (I think I made mine about 32" long)
3/4" PVC pipe coupling
1" PVC pipe coupling
3/4" PVC pipe cap (to finish the bottom end)
I took the knob off of the fan and traced around it on a piece of paper so I would know where to cut the notches in the end of the 1" coupling. After cutting the 4 notches, try it on the knob before gluing everything together. You want a loose fit on the knob.
It is light weight, works great and stores easily.
