Question Ceiling Fan blade

Our ceiling fan blade just broke on our latest rip. Any suggestions to keep it from happening again? I noticed the chain would wrap around our fan in travel and I think thatís the culprit.

Happens to ours all of the time, especially on the rough roads. You can cut the chain to a shorter length or remember to unwrap it before you turn the ceiling fan on.

A piece of painters tape on the switch will remind you to check it before you turn it on and won’t leave any marks…

I unclipped the extension part and stow in in the junk drawer. I can still easily reach the 2" stub of remaining chain if i need to adjust fan speed and the short stub does not get tangled into the fan.

Some of those ornamental weights for the chain works good. My wife added some really Big birds onto ours. No pics as I'm camping & I don't have a clue how to add pics from my iPad or phone, just my desktop at home.

FYI. We priced some new outdoor blades for our patio fans and for just a few $ more can put up new fans. Those 2have been up since 1997 so probably better to replace.
