Caframo Fan Clamp Rubber Feet Falling Out

I noticed that the rubber feet on my Caframo fan clamps are falling out. The clamps are nearly new and have only been used a few times. Anybody have this problem? I emailed Caframo.


I searched the forum to no avail. I also did not see an obvious sub-forum to post this question.

Acknowledging Caframo's response. They are sending me a replacement unit. Thank you Caframo.

Re: Caframo Fan Clamp Rubber Feet Falling Out

I like the Ultimate fan, but the clamp and suction cup mounts never work well with fans IMO.


I fitted my Ultimate fan with a ~ 7" wooden base with foam rubber under it and use it as a table fan. Works fine on a multihull.
