|jbrady33||How high do you want them off the tank? If it isn't too high you can make legs/feet with SS instead of hangers|

Probably going to do this soon. Nothing but friction preventing the hanger from sliding out of the grooves? (if the light were jostled/tipped, for example)?
Wonder if there's a hobby shop near me that sells 3/32" SS rods.

|Lowe||Nice work! Maybe you can start marketing them as I'm sure there are a ton of users here looking for hanging options. That's pretty close to the design we sent over to be produced but we still haven't received any feedback back yet. If anyone asks for a kit, I can surely direct them to you if you like!|

|jbrady33||Great job! Exactly what I had in mind. .|

Well, photobucket is not liking me right now. I'll just have to show you the final brackets. I'll try again tomorrow to get it to let me show you the process. They're fairly simple
With these brackets in place of the legs you can use whatever method (chain, cable, whatever) you want to hang your lights. No drilling into the case or modifying the light at all.
I used aluminum for these and they support a 24" light very easily. Stainless rods are also available and, while most likely more difficult to bend, would be more rigid and I would assume could hold more weight. I really don't think it would matter in this application anyhow.

|BeachBum2012||I have a design in mind that will slide into the existing grooves. I think it'll work quite well. Home Depot doesn't carry 3/32 rod though so I had to order online. It'll be a week or so before I can try my idea.|

Yes, you can slide nails or wire into the slide grooves
The 'official' hanger should be 2 'C' shaped hangers that wrap around the light from the top and slide in the same groves.
EDIT: just now thought of this, but long stiff wire (stainless?) through the slide grooves would allow a Finnex light to go on a slightly longer tank than the light, a la Mainland's fixtures.
