I don't like the little screws the ADA light comes with. They are basic, hard to work with, and could look better.

Is anyone aware of light-hanging kits that are easier to work with a adjust?

This is what I am talking about. I am sure there is a better name for these screw things.

It is kind of hard (or at least commercially) to make the clips look "better"

Is drilling the metal an option? It looks like lightweight aluminum? Maybe easy to drill?
My thought is running like drilling the support, small hole for the cable and then larger hole at the top to add a small clamp type fitting. I have no idea of the name so a search is needed but think of a small barrel shape to pass the cable through end to end and a set screw to clamp it down. This could leave the clamp hidden inside the support?

Exposed attachments do bug me!

Random thoughts of this nature can often be filed in the trash without harm!
