I have done a few of these.
I have never seen a tapered can. What you are showing is the trim.

It should come out to reveal the can.

You still shouldn't hang a fan on it.

You need a metal box with 2 16 penny nails into wood.
2x4 cross brace between rafters.

I have an unrestricted electrical license and would gladly do it for free.
My traveling expenses, of course, will be on you. :D

Let me know.

It sure LOOKS like a tinny piece of junk.

Can't see how that tapered "can" thing would even come out.

Are there 2 little tabs next to the socket that you can squeeze?

Looks like a trim that just pulls down on wires.
It should pull down from ceiling a couple inches. Socket pops out the back.

Still won't help though. The flimsy metal bar it is mounted on won't hold a fan.

It's spring loaded just pull it down a little.
Get your fingers between the ceiling and the lip and pull on it.

IT... is heavy triangular thingy that goes inside the can.

In fact this youtube shows the exact thingy I got and took back.

So much jabbering. My contractor would've had it done by now, and I'd be enjoying the cooling breezes with a tasty beverage.

It will fit in your can but your can could be just sitting on the sheetrock for all I know.
Even with the metal bracket it came with, I wouldn't hang a fan on it.
Can you get above this can you want to convert?

Looks like it's true.

Too much masturbation WILL kill brain cells and keep people from being able to follow a conversation.

As Trump says, .....sad. :neutral:

Go buy the wall mount oscillating fan I linked and a stud finder for the 2x4s. Then put in 4 freaking screws and plug it in
