Good mount ... but By Vicki on 11/21/2018Vicki would recommend this product to a friendI'm very happy with the stability and look of this mount. A little tricky to set up but after that no issues. It does not droop. However, the metal on the one I received is pitted/scratched/damaged all along the side which makes me think it was a return. Very disappointed to receive a product in this condition.
Very sturdy By john on 1/7/2018john would recommend this product to a friendAfter reading the reviews on the flex arms I decided to order these instead. Easy to use and very solid. No worries about the lights falling into the tank. The holes for the cords are a nice touch to keep things neat.
It Successfully Holds the Light By Kyle on 1/29/2016Kyle would recommend this product to a friendPeople it's a Light stand. Granted there were issues with earlier models which were fixed. I have the latest revision. It was simple to put together, even without instructions. I have one major issue with the design however that I definitely feel AI should address. The Power cable is not detachable; so when you are situating the light or if you have to rotate the light, there is a high possibility and probability that you will in fact slice through the black insulation on the power cable. This is a pretty poor situation given how much you pay for these things and how you either hang them or use these mounts... One would figure it wouldn't effectively cut up the only wire coming out of the unit....
Mount works as intended on my tank. By KGro on 1/4/2016KGro would recommend this product to a friendI am not sure why everyone else is experiencing headaches with this mount. I installed it on my tank and have had zero issues. I set the light in the position I wanted, tightened down the screw on each side of the ball joint where the mount connects to the light fixture and it has been solid. I would not recommend trying to adjust the lights position with out loosening the ball joint screws or the plastic friction ring might get compromised. In all the reviews I read that seems to be the problem. I am happy with the mount. I would give five stars if it were a bit more refined.
Worked great for mee By Michelle on 11/12/2015Michelle would recommend this product to a friendThis bracket worked just fine for me, no dropping of the light, just tighten the screws around the ball joint and the light stays in any postion you like.
works perfect By jstanny on 9/13/2015jstanny would recommend this product to a friendthis mount works flawlessly there are two bolts on the ball joint tighten them down with included allen wrench and it wont tilt down on you. hides wire well. for the money you cant beat it.
Good By Fish13 on 8/11/2015Fish13 would recommend this product to a friendThe light mount is good could be better though.
AI service is great By Soe Min on 6/28/2015Soe Min would recommend this product to a friendNice mount. I also has the tilting issue. Contact AI customer service and they ask me for my address and shipped the new mount piece right away.
Could be better By Edward on 6/24/2015Edward would recommend this product to a friendFor of having a nice light Aqua illumination could of made a better light holder, it tilts made myself a rubber washer to have a better grip so it won't tilt, working so far.
AI Has Great Customer Service By Jdkrockstar on 5/17/2015Jdkrockstar would recommend this product to a friendAlthough what everyone else has said is true, no one has talked about the AI customer service. I bought this product and experienced the drooping light. This was due to a manufacturing issue with the plastic piece that fits in the hole the metal ball sits in that they have since fixed. I contacted AI support via the website and explained my issue. In addition, when I tried tightening the screws, I stripped one of them.
AI sent me a brand new mount to replace mine but it still had the drooping issue so I contacted them and they sent out the part right away and I had it within a few days. Now it works flawlessly.
Poor Design By Zarn on 5/14/2015Zarn wouldn't recommend this product to a friendDo not buy this mounting arm. When you place any pressure on the screw to hold the light puck in place the swivel ball will push through the arm. Save your money and look elsewhere
Poor design, waste of money. By ReefMaster on 5/11/2015ReefMaster wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI liked the idea of being able to direct the light. But it blows my mind how you could mess up the implementation of the mount. It is just a ball and socket joint, almost all car mounted cell phone holders use ball and socket joints that don't droop. But for this you light just flops over. You cannot adjust the direction of your light because the ball and socket does not hold. Why did they use smooth shiny steel for the ball? why not a plastic ball and socket clamp like for every other device? AI has lost its shine.
It appears that the set screw or screw that holds bracket to the tank is on the inside of the tank. Can it be switched to the outside of the tank?
The tank mounting bracket can be placed on the front or backside of the vertical bracket depending on what fits your tanks needs the best. There are two screws that you will need to remove to do so, but then simply just flip the bracket over, and screw it back together.
