The guy wire turnbuckles are designed to be tightened by hand to eliminate any movement of the fan. This can be evaluated by attempting to move the mount side to side and tightening the guy wires until a rigid system is accomplished. This also allows the installer to ensure the mounting structure is rigid as well.
