light mounting legs question

Hi All. I have a DIY light fixture that I made of wood. I don't like the way I have it mounted, and have been looking for a set of legs. I found these but I can't figure out how I would attach them to my fixture. Has anyone seen/used these? Do you have a better suggestion for a mounting option? Thanks!

Just the clear ones. The adjustable ones look like they are designed for a specific fixture. Another view of something similar can be seen HERE. These look like they may work, I may just have to order them and bite the bullet.

I believe those are also made for use in the track on the Coralife fixtures.

Try looking for the Mounting Legs for Current fixtures. These are designed to slide into a grove on the bottom of the Current fixtures. Because of their design they can be easily moded to work with your fixture. You can use a dremel to cut of the top peice that would slide into the grove, which will give you a nice flat surface to work with. You can then simply glue the legs in place.
