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.
Fit perfectly as a ceiling extension for my Hunter Contempo II fan.
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.
