Thanks! I installed several eyebolts across the aluminum u-channel - 4 for each fixture. There is a 3/8" (approx) bolt channel at the top of the heat sink you can use as well. I attached stainless steel braided wire (picture hanging wire rated for 50lbs) with ferrules across each pair of eyebolts. Instead of using the stops, I just crimped the ferrules. It's just slung over the hanging pipe at about 4". Looks super clean, even with the power cables. I'll post a pic when I get a chance.
