Now you can easily unfold the fan by twisting the bamboo slats in a clockwise direction. The fan should easily open to it's full width of 60 inches (40 inches for our smaller sized fans). There is never any need to remove the fan pivot screw--all fans open easily in a clockwise direction.

Our wall fans are all made from very strong Thai bamboo, which has the added benefit of being light. Double sided tape, applied to a few places on the fans ribs, can easily hold the fan in place and using this method you can also easily move the fan should you want to reposition it later on. As a final bit of added security, you can add a single normal picture hook or hanger at the bottom of the fan if you wish.
