Send a message via MSN to mr_X
They are basically 4 wires attached to clips and one large ring or carabiner at the other end. There aren't any adjustments.

Lights finally showed up I caught the delivery guy trying to Ninja away from the house, looks like im off to buy some better hanging kits the one it comes with leaves the lights about 4ft above my tank, which means I only need one to cover 6 feet of tank!

Yes and no, at the end of the day, it is depend on what you keeping, the higher you place your light, u are sacrificed output for coverage. You will need to find the balance for it. Also I can't imagine a 6" tank doesn't have a bracer in the middle

My 6 foot tank is eurobraced so it does not have a center brace and I wouldn't have it any other way.

And I was just joking about how the hanging kit that comes with them is very small.
