power head

I purchased a new power head. It has the clip on the back with 4 small suction cups that is supposed to stick to the glass on the tank. I keep having to pick it up off the bottom of the tank and try sticking it to the glass. It keeps sliding down. Any suggestions on getting to stay in place?

Sure Grip Magnetic Powerhead holders are your best bet.

If your PH came with a bracket to hang on the tank they work well also but there isn't much you can do with suction cups, they will always work their way loose eventually IME.


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P

I kept having the same problem and I eventually had to use the HOB frame that came with mine. Moving this to Hardware and equipment discussion
