What we thought would be a simple ceiling fan install has turned in to a stumper. After removing the existing fixture and light box we find the lightweight brace for the previous light to be a pain to remove.

are a couple
. How can we get this thing out? We can't reach it to just pry the staples out and we have no attic access to this room because it is a bonus room over the garage. We only have about 4 inches of height to work with. Our other option would be to make a new hole diagonal to the current hole so the new ceiling fan brace can clear the obstruction and get a ceiling medallion to cover the base of new fan and hide the old hole. But this would put the fan slightly off center of the room. Not the end of the world. Ideas?
