Wow... Ok listen to the other reviews By Bret on 9/22/2017Bret wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI thought "how bad could they be"? Maybe they have been improved or there was something strange with the other ones.
This is the worst thing I have ever bought of BRS. No kidding the screws are totally wrong, not just tight, but totally the wrong size. The matrixx I got didn't even have drilled holes for the legs.
If your tank is on the shorter side to be mounted - my marineland 60 cube is bit less than 24" - the bracket will obstruct a good deal of the bulbs but it will fit.
The metal is very thick and powder coating matches the light, so that is a positive! But for the price... Really!?!?!
Um Sorry but I Hate it! By Gb on 10/11/2016Gb wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe legs caused me such a headache initially as the Screws that Come with the brackets don't fit. After emailing back and forth with the distributor there was no luck. The makers of these just kept saying its a "tight fit". Or use them in the other holes. Its not that hard and Trust me when i say the screws did not fit. I hate 3 people (including an engineer friend) and none of us could get this to work.
I had to go to Lowes and find some specialty plastic screws which work but are not the right ones and sorta kinda holds everything in place : /
Besides that the overall design of these brackets are rather chunky sort of hard to adjust and use. The design could have been better for sure.
They work, however if there was any other tank mount option I would have gone for that. But they don't have any options. I cannot use the ceiling mount for the location of my tank.
Not Good at All By Jeff on 6/27/2016Jeff wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThese mounting legs are absolutely terrible. For $73 you would think they could design something that actually worked. Sure, it holds the light above the tank but I had to file the slots where the screws go in order to get the nylon screws to even start in the threads. Then there's the screws. They're nylon which is fine for the ones that tighten to the glass to hold the fixture snug, but the ones that attach the legs to the light itself are also nylon and not the right size to boot. I had to force them into the threads even after filing down the slots. The excess bracket just sits in front of the lights which is less than aesthetically pleasing.
I know what you're thinking. Why not just hang the light from the ceiling? That was unfortunately not an option for me as I'm sure it is for many others as well. If you're looking for a T5 fixture which you can sit on the tank rim look at another option.

This will work up to 1.25" tank rim. Will not work on eurobrace tanks. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
