How do I use the included tank mounting kit (legs and feet)?

All Acan Lighting LED fixtures are shipped with both ceiling hanging and tank-mounting kits, allowing you to customize your system. The tank-mounting legs and feet included with the 12" and 18" lengths will allow the fixture to mount to tanks up to 6" wider, and the bracket included with the 24", 36" and 48" fixtures will allow them to mount to tanks up to 12" wider.

If you choose to use the tank mounting kit, please follow these simple steps to attached and adjust the legs and feet:

Step 1:

Pictured is the fixture with the tank mounting legs and feet attached. Please note the "left" and "right" side of the fixture.

Step 2:

Locate the 2 hole "plugs" on each side of the fixture, as indicated by the arrows.

Step 3:

Using a flat, blunt object, such as a small screwdriver, carefully remove the 2 plugs on the left side of the fixture, and the 2 plugs on the right side. Store the plugs in a safe place for future use.

Step 4:

Screw in the stainless steel "legs" into the holes. Please note that the legs for the "left" side and "right" side are threaded differently and packaged separately. The legs for the "left" side will be screwed in by turning in a clockwise direction, and the legs for the "right" side will be screwed in by turning in a counter-clockwise direction. Continue to screw in the legs on each side until they are at the proper width for your tank. Always leave a minimum of 1 inch of the legs screwed into the fixture for stability.

Step 5:

Attach the mounting feet by inserting the legs into the holes and firmly pressing down. When the leg is properly attached to the feet, you should feel it lock into place (It may help to slightly wiggle the legs into position).
