Anyone have the correct way to balance a ceiling fan?

First you will need some duct tape, and a cat...

make sure I buy a good brand.
If it wobbles I return it

That sounds like it would make it even more off of balance.

I read the directions.

every ceiling fan i've ever bought has come with a balancing kit and instructions.


i buy quality so i've never actually had to use the kits..

you can tape weights on the top end of the blades. just figure out which ones are the "lite" ones. a home improvement store may have something.

You place a few coins on the end off the blade that wobbles kind like you do a car tire .

Ugly result of insufficient duct tape...
