Hanging light diy

Can anyone tell me how you did the bent metal hanging system seen in the ada tanks ? And that seems to be popular here?

I would go to home depot or lowes hardware store. I bought two metal poles and used there pole bender that there selling to bend it to you specification. I didn't wanna pay for a pipe bender to only use it for a second. The worker there just turned around when I asked if I could use it.

Electrical conduit can be bent really easily without a real pipe bender. You can just bend it around anything sturdy with an even radius. Or I guess you can just borrow tools in the store... lol. Great idea.

Do most people here not hang the light from the ceiling? I never see anyone doing it that way. I ask because I will do this DIY soon and I don't want to have to do it twice lol.

Just find some metal wires while your still at the hardware store tie it to the poles and drill some holes on top of the light fixture to put the other end of the wiring. Unless you can find a better way of doing.
