Is it my Phillips screwdriver or its just me?


Really need a picture so everyone's not having to just guess what it is your trying to do.
There's 4 or 5 differant fan rated boxes you could be trying to use.

And we have to know how much of the screw is actually going into the wood.

It has 2 screws actually so pullout capacity is 2x my previous calcs. Everything is good now. I was able to install it. Thanks to all who replied.

Most of the Hunter fans that I've bought have a pair of ~2" long screws for use when you have a framed-in 2x4 for the box mount. The long screw lets you go into the mounting plate, take up the gap depth of the electrical box, and get you deep enough into the wood. Course, the boxes I had to add in myself use threaded bolts (or are they still considered screws? 10-32 I think... Whatever!)
