Please Help! How can I mount a Wiremold Box to a hollow aluminum beam for a ceiling fan in my patio? I am leary of using screws as they may loosen while fan is on. Or is there a screw that won't loosen by itself? Does anyone have any ideas. Thanks so much.

As Dennis is permitting this so far, I'm guessing because it's really a mechanical question:

What are the dimensions of the accessible part of the beam, bottom width and sides going upward?

I think there is a paddle fan acceptable listed wiremold box but attaching to the aluminum channel is all you, probably use 3/16 toggle bolts?

Are you now or were you an electrician. Retired doesn't tell us what you do or did for a living
Dennis, I may be in the wrong place. i was looking for help on how to mount an electrical box to a hollow aluminum beam. I am semi retired, yes, I am not an electrician, just a novice homeowner trying to install a ceiling fan in my patio. I still do part time work for Best Buy as a inventory auditor. I apologize if I am in the wrong place. I was looking for help.
