Adjustable bracket for Satellite

Has anyone bought or tried out the adjustable bracket that they sell for satelllite LED strips? I want to hang two strips from them but am wondering if i will get good coverage on a tank thats 18 inch deep.

I have the bracket, and it is holding two satellite+ pro models over a 24x18x18 inch tank
It works pretty good except the two pieces that hold the lights on are kinda wiggly.
I took it apart and removed some of the extra washers and stuff so I could get it tighter cause the washer is so big that the fins that keep it straight don't go in the grooves and it won't flush to the metal arm either so it wiggles left and right

Not very heavy at all if you ask me!
What's a lb or two compared to the 7.5 lbs per gallon of water

Can you just buy the clips? I'm looking at a different type of mounting.
