It is a downrod, worked great with my fan.
Exactly what I needed as my fan did not come with one.
We purchased this and it came in and worked beautifully - it arrived on time and it works just as we needed it to providing us the additional clearance for several of our bedroom ceiling fans.
I did not have the time to exchange it, and it did work on my Hunter fan but I do feel this was misleading.
Worked perfectly with my Hunter 53237 fan I purchased.
Though it states that it fits most ceiling fans, the key word is most.
It did not fit either one of my fans.
I ended up purchasing my downrods from Home Depot.
I paid a little more, not much, but i was able to make sure they fit in each of my fans before taking them home.
