Slide and swivel your lights to exactly where you want them, then fasten them in place to best illuminate your livestock.

Great mount

Pros: Great sturdy mount that’s good quality

Cons: Doesn’t properly fit power wire to the new Hydro 32

This is the great mount for the hydras.. works very well.Complaint I have is they didn’t update it for the Hydro 32 so the cord doesn’t fit where the old one used to be… They give you wire clips but I’d rather have the wire path because wit looks cleaner

Pros: Nice clean lines

Cons: Screws strip easy, have to remove light bracket just to adjust light.

Well made parts, seems sturdy, some of the Allen set screws are not made well and Allen wrench just spins inside hole. Light bracket to bar you can not adjust unless you unscrew the bracket holding the light on..kinda *ss backwards..Will see how they hole up.

Slim, sleek and well built!

Pros: Slim, sleek and well built.

Cons: Instructions.

As the title says: its slim, sleek and well built. For a newcomer to the reef world, the instructions could use a little work but other than that I love it!

Pros: Solid construction

Not a fan of the coiled spring mounts and the exposed wiring, this is fully adjustable and has a hidden wire way and have it adjusted to the height and length that i wanted exactly , worth the effort and $
