Chris Jacobsen Posted May 26 Share Posted May 26 Parents purchased a brand new Original Hunter fan, not my choice but they like new things. The new fan came with two mounting kits! I thought that was fairly awesome and scored an extra kit! They wanted it to have remote control and bought the wireless kit for the Original Hunter. As we all know the Original Hunter wireless kit COMES WITH a special canopy. So basically we have three canopy options to choose from. Attached are pictures of these Note that the wireless kit canopy is very long measuring about 140mm long, 153mm wide. The remote unit plops into the canopy, little sloppy IMHO... The new style ball hanger and canopy provided with the fan measures about 165mm wide, 57mm high The old style hook and bumper measures in at about 84mm long and 140mm wide. I noticed the remote control sender from the wireless kit FITS INTO the ball stlye hanger! It fits nicely and precisely, (I like that) so you have an option of using the long canopy or the newer low profile one. We decided on the low profile precise fit. The old hook and bumper mount will be kept for my 1919 Emerson =). Pictures are included for educational purposes. Personally I think the remote canopy kit is a waste, may as well just get a remote and receiver, mount the new receiver in the new canopy. Hope this helps future installers!
