DIY hanging kit for Current Satellite +?

Hey guys!

I was thinking about hanging my current satellite and I was looking for examples on the internet and found none! Has anyone done this with this specific light?

I will be using conduit piping, I just don't know how I will hang my light from the pipe. And I don't want to drill into my light. I'm pretty sure I saw somewhere someone used an adhesive loop for the chain or something?
Thanks!

I would use some simple black zipties on the light itself. Before tightening the ziptie, put a small "s" hook under it or a small metal ring of some sort to attach to your chain or what ever will be coming off the pipe.

So this is what I ended up doing. I turned the little legs on the light upside down and slipped 1/2 inch conduit piping through it and attached the pipe to my desk. It works really well and it's really simple and I can move it and turn it so I can still reach into the tank.
