Excellent build quality but ecotech dropped the ball on design aspects! By Abe on 2/10/2018Abe would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this for my G4 Pro Radion. The product is metal, could be coated aluminum. The connectors are plastic. It consists of 3 different sizes for different sized aquariums. It basically extends the light out forward from the back of the aquarium. The first extension extended 4 -5 inches from the back of the tank after mounting.
The second extension extends 8-10 inches and the third extension extends 12 inches. You could use the one that fits your tank.
All is good so far. Start assembling and the design flaw crops up.
There are two metal screws that hold and connect the plastic part and the metal part.
Please be careful tightening the screw, it will break the plastic as you tighten it even lightly. Their instructions mention to tighten it all the way. I did that I heard a cracking sound. The plastic connector had cracked.
It is a design flaw. They should have a washer in between placed to take the crush load.
Other than that it is a good product.
Excellent mount to compliment Radion XR30 By Reefkpr on 9/7/2017Reefkpr would recommend this product to a friendI purchased 3 of these RMS mounts for my Red Sea Reefer 525XL. They look super clean and are sturdy. Compliments the Radions perfect and look great on the tank. I would have given 5 stars but 1 of my mounts where the Radion attaches was slightly crooked. With a little tweaking the mount is ok. The mounting bolts were a little long but easily corrected by cutting off with Dremel tool.
Nice sleek Radion mount By Phillip on 6/25/2017Phillip would recommend this product to a friendWanted something to mount my 3 Radion G4 Pro's over my Red Sea Reefer 525XL.. This mount is very well built, allows for cord management and grips the rimless tank perfect.. Highly recommend this mount for the Radion.
What doesn't Ecotech make thats 5 stars By Chris on 3/21/2017Chris would recommend this product to a friendGreat light mount. I do with Scotch would make a adapter to mount the light over a center brace of the tank.
Well built light holder By Murfman on 2/6/2017Murfman would recommend this product to a friendWell build and strong light holder. Just barely opens enough to get around the lip on my JBJ Nano tank though.
Another Great Product from Ecotech Marine By Steven on 11/6/2016Steven would recommend this product to a friendReally sturdy and easy to set up. Pay attention to the screws and where they are used. All in all the mount is exactly what I needed.
Don't try it on a JBJ rimmed tank. By james on 4/13/2016james wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI thought this was going to be my solution to mounting my radion 30 pro to my JBJ 28gallon nanocube. Not so much. One side of the clamp is undercut to clear the plastic rim (good idea), the other side is not (bad idea). So the clamping force ends up on the cheap flimsy plastic rim on the backside of the tank, which will not support it and results in a precarious forward lean. This forward lean exerts alot of pressure on the inside jaw of the clamping fixture pushing outward on the back of your tank. I accidentally bumped my light with my head and the whole fixture started swaying from to back like there was an earthquake going on, upon looking closer it wasn't the fixture swaying it was my entire back aquarium glass bowing in and out like it was breathing. I am scared every hour this thing is above my tank, and will dump it the second I get another mounting option in my hands.
FLAWED DESIGN DO NOT BUY By Tim on 3/20/2016Tim wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLike another buyer here I had great expectations for these mounts given that I have over $2000 invested in the lights. For years it was frustrating to have no other options aside from suspension mount or direct attachment under a hood. The lights themselves ARE heavy so it was important for that aspect to be taken into consideration by the manufacturer.
Unfortunately, the result is so poorly designed that I wonder if the person that did this had ever actually held one of the lights.
If your tank has a lipped top this design WILL sag with the XR30. It looks like garbage and severely restricts the functionality of the lights by redirecting the downlight at an angle.
THE PROBLEM: The attachment mechanism is a single screw that threads through a rigid, but incredibly brittle, plastic base. The light is held up and out over the tank which causes the weight to create torque at the base. The single screw cannot exert enough force to hold the arm upright. It will sag and actually creates a hazard. It is clear by viewing that the base can fail to hold which would leave the light going for a swim.
The frustration here is that this problem has NO REASON to be that way. It would have been so incredibly simple to create a combination of multi-axis screws in an aluminum metal base that would not flex. This would clearly have overcome the combination of improper leverage by the set screw, and materials that fail.
Ecotech should recall this.
It is that bad.
WONDERFUL By Dennis on 10/17/2015Dennis would recommend this product to a friendThe light track/slide mounts is a welcomed way to hang the Radions over then tank! Fairly easy to assemble and versatile ... allowing you to space and place the lights the way you want! Functional and nice looking ... what else could you ask for?
The MAP pricing keeps the dollars spent as a non-factor but the customer service at Bulk Reef makes a BIG difference!
Great job guys!
Easy to setup By Brandon on 7/13/2015Brandon would recommend this product to a friendThis is easy to setup. Lots of parts to fit almost any size tank.
Great mount and it fits inside my canopy. By RICHARD on 6/16/2015RICHARD would recommend this product to a friendThis was easy to put together and it securely holds my radion pro. The cable management is great. It holds the light a good height above the water and it fit inside my canopy, although my canopy is a bit on the tall side - 14 inches inside, but plenty of room for the mount.
Great Mount By Chris on 6/4/2015Chris would recommend this product to a friendThis mount is what sold me on buying the XR15 light. I just had no interest in trying to hang a light from the ceiling and this does the trick. It looks great and on my rimless tank and it doesn't sag at all.
On my tank it's attached to the back wall of the filter compartment. So my only complaint is that the bolt that holds the mount to the tank protrudes into the tank quite a lot and really does get in the way. They do include a flexible plastic cover for the bolt which is a really nice and appreciated touch, but it just sticks out too far for my tank. If you have a bigger tank this won't even be noticed, but for a small tank it prevents you from getting your hand into the middle filter compartment. It's not a deal breaker by any means, but I wish they had put more thought into getting that bolt to come out the back of the mount rather than it being in the front.
Approximately, how high will my radions gen 3 pros be over the water line?
How far forward will the XR30 sit from the back of the tank?
Have a great day!
Will this mount fit the Radions pro gen 3?
Can I use this on a eurobraced tank? You
