    Come on now Jim...paperclips and paper clamps is not a safe way to suspend lights over your plants man!


    Looks bright though! Is that an air cooling mechanism you crafted on top?

    Looks like he "outboarded" the ballast.

    It came as a put together kit and I had an electrician assemble it. That's the ballast! I tried other ways to prop up the light but this worked the best with what I have. Hey... it works...

    You can buy different sorts of chain by the foot at most hardware store. Find a thin wire coat hanger and make S hooks from that and you'll have a more secure setup.
