    Hi, i purchased one of the cheap luminaires from ebay that ive seen posted on here and as the ends wont clip onto my tank i want to find some way of hanging it. Im ok with making the brackets or whatever i'll be needing to hang it off but does anyone know where i could find a suitable hanging kit? (the steel wire bit etc) I preferably want to do this on the cheap if i can.

    Thanks for your help

    hi,
    i can send you the wires in got with my luminare about a week ago, as im using the brackets that came with the luminare to hold my lighting.
    they are silver wire like you are looking for with a hook at one end to go on the celing and a thread at the other designed to screw in to the bolts on top of my lights, but you could probably find the right size thread at B&Q then weld it on top of your lights.
