Well, I had a thought that I might get up into the attic so I could double check that the installation is right and proper, but it turns out that's a lot harder than I'd thought it would be.


Venturing into the attic I took a look at the crawl space and the how tight it would be.  It's not impossible to get in there, for sure, but it sure wouldn't be easy.

I think instead I'll test the worthiness of the Arlington FB-900 in another way.  IF it was properly installed (yes I've learned to check these things) it should easily be able to carry a 150 pound load (the weight of the chandelier and the chain and the light fixtures.  I'll have to give it some thought, but I reckon I can rig something to test it with.  

I'm going to go very slowly with this....I don't want to have that chandelier come crashing down on anybody!

Looking down the left hand side of the crawl space. Note all of the very difficult to navigate around metal joint plates.....
...and here's the right hand side of the crawl space. I can SEE the electrical where it runs down into the living space, but it would be pretty hard to get there from here.
