Hey,

I was wondering what you guys thought was used to make the kino stick to the ceiliing in this photo.

http://www.kinoflo.c...ision/1-8/7.htm

I had been taking the bulbs out of the housing and taping them up, but this looks much faster. My first thought was gaff tape, but I feel like that wouldn't hold.

Thanks,

Matt

Maybe a Pump cup but it looks like the kino are too close to the ceiling... <_< , perhaps a hook a little one, previously added in the ceiling... I don't think gaff tape is too strong to hold a Kino (4x4)...

Most Kinos have holes on the 4 corners of the unit, you could screw through them and use a washer.

That's my guess. It's too close to the ceiling for there to be anything in between the fixture and the wall.

It's clearly a set, so just screwing the Kino into the ceiling would be simple.

Un "washer" es una arandela.
