Quick Overview

The Kessil Mounting Arm is a rigid arm that allows your Kessil light to be suspended over your tank by clamping onto the aquariums rim. The mounting arm has an adjustment for height, as well as distance making it a perfect mounting solution for any Kessil light. With its integrated cord channel there is no more need for plastic zip ties to manage the cables because they will route cleanly inside of the Mounting arm itself.

Dimensions: 1" x W 12.32" - 15.43" x H 20.78"

Front to back adjustment works for 18" to 24" wide tanks


Full Details

For Kessil lighting and many others mounting options can be the ultimate decision to know what is right for you. Kessil has come out with a few different options to make their lights work for almost anyone while looking great.

The Mounting Arms will mount directly to the back side of your tank and make a 90-degree bend to suspend your light over the center of any 18" to 24" wide tank while keeping a rigid form factor. With included cord routing holes the Mounting Arm is by far one of the cleanest mounting options for LED lights.


Mounting compatible with:

  • A160
  • A360
  • AP700


Note: AP700 needs 2 Mounting Arms

  • Kessil Great Customer Service By Joshua on 9/28/2017

    Kessil has great customer service, I lost the C clamp adapter for the A160 Tunas and they are sending me another. This will help me mount these arms and Im liking the cord management here.
  • Nice alternative to the gooseneck arms By Darrell on 9/13/2017

    I'm very happy with these over the gooseneck arms I was using previously. I wanted to add some measurements that I wasn't able to find anyplace (and my question here never got answered). If you are using this on single lights, they work great on tanks much narrower than the description says.

    From the center of the vertical tube, each of the mounting holes in the closest position measure 8", 9.75" and 11.25" But the mounting bracket puts the vertical tube about 2" being the back glass of the tank, meaning you could center a single light over a 12" wide tank.
  • Great for A360w By Brian on 6/26/2017

    The picture of this product fooled me at first. Didn't realize it was for single lights AND panel lights.
  • Mounting hardward inadequate for my tank By Mervin on 6/1/2017

    I wanted to mount my AP 700's with these mounts but found that the mounting hardware would not properly fit my tank due to the plastic rim on my tank. What I ended up doing is making a mounting board that attaches to the wall behind the tank and then installing only the slide through holder to that. I was bummed at first but attaching the lights like that meant that I didn't have to have my tank three inches from the wall to accommodate the thump screws on the back. Now the thumb screws are on the tank side and easily accessible for adjustment if need be. I've also been thinking of just replacing them with allen set screws to clean up the look even more.
    Kessil could do way better in the design of these mounts for their high cost. The slide through bracket could be drilled and tapped for installation of the thrum screws/set screws on the back, and sides to allow more flexibility for installation. Buyers should also be warned that this mount may not necessarily fit their tanks. I just threw four machined brackets and plastic blocks in the trash.
  • Easy to use By bubblebuddy747 on 2/12/2017

    Used to mount 2 a360we over my 120 gallon rimless, Looks gorgeous, easy to setup and allowed me to remove a canopy that I had been using to hold the lights. Have been using the lights with my canopy for a long time but could never quite put the lights where I wanted due to its construction. These let me put the lights right where I wanted them and my corals are responding very well.
  • Flawless By Jason on 10/24/2016

    These A Series mounts are FAR superior than the goosenecks! I believe they are worth the extra money!
  • Best Kessil arm ever By Lance on 8/18/2016

    I was looking for a way to hide the wires on my A360we and this item solved that issue flawlessly
  • Love this mounting arm. By Beemer07 on 1/23/2016

    I bought this to use in place of the original gooseneck for my a360we, love it all the wires go through the top piece and down the back of tank, no more wrapping wires around that gooseneck. Much more heavy duty and sturdy.

Product Questions

Would this not fit a 150w?
Question by: Chee on May 19, 2016 7:23:00 PM
Great question! This product will only fit the A series 160 and 360 lights.
Answer by: Carter (Admin) on May 24, 2016 11:47:00 AM
I purchased a nuvo 10gal tank from you. Will a kessil A arm new mount put a kessil A160we tuna over the center of the tank(less the back compartment)? Specs for the mount state 18 to 24 in. width -the nuvo is 15in, but the picture of the adjustable mount looks like it would. Because of the tank back compartment, the center of the main tank is not 7.5in but 10in from the back of the tank.
Question by: todd on Mar 29, 2016 3:49:00 PM
Great question!
The A series can work great even over the smaller 10 gallon, The light will mount about 8" from the back wall outside of the tank. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

I have a standard 29 gallon tank - 12 inches wide. Is there a way to center an A160 using this arm?
Question by: DSinSoCal on Apr 29, 2017 2:51:00 AM
Hey there,
Unfortunately the A series mounting arm will have a little too much reach for your tank. They can only be adjusted to center the lights over a tank of 18" to 24" in depth.

Hello, I love the look of kessil, I will be lighting a 525xl which is 59 long, I like the look better without the wires showing, is this width adjustibe so it can be centered in the tank? Also how would I mount the middle light where is overflow is ? Thanks again!
Question by: TODD EOSSO on Mar 22, 2016 8:32:00 PM
Great question!
A fantastic option would be two of the kessil A arms, and two of the Kessil A360's which can mount to the arms and hide the cords. This will mount on either side of the overflow and spread the light evenly across the tank. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 23, 2016 11:12:00 AM
Will this work on a standard tank with plastic trim or is it only for rimless tanks?
Question by: Jim Hailes on May 14, 2016 1:52:00 AM
Great question!
This will work with rims up to 1.25" wide. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on May 17, 2016 8:39:00 PM
Would it be possible to forgo the tank clamp and mount this on the wall behind the aquarium instead?
Question by: Margaret Jenkins on Oct 28, 2017 12:59:00 PM
Hey there,

While intended for that purpose, half the fun of this hobby is putting our ingenuity to work to create a solution! Adapting this for a wall-mount would definitely be a do-it-yourself type of project, so I'm afraid we couldn't really advise on that application, but where there's a will, there may be a way!

Happy Reefing!
Answer by: Zack (Admin) on Nov 17, 2017 3:14:00 PM
Hi Margaret, thanks for reaching out!

You could easily remove the tank clamp and affix the mounting arm to the wall using the bracket with screws. Be sure to screw into a stud, use drywall anchors, or otherwise reinforce the wall for a solid ans safe install.

If I want this for the ap700, would I have to purchase 2?
Question by: Matt on Apr 7, 2016 9:17:00 AM
Great question!
Two mounts will be required for the Ap700. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
