Snap the mounting bracket into the ceiling's electrical bracket. Once you actually hear and feel the snap, you will know that the bracket is securely in place.

Attach the mounting head of the fan to the mounting bracket in the ceiling. Insert the screws into the holes around both brackets once they are attached.
