For larger lights, remove the panels and find a solid beam in the ceiling. Use a Maffer or Cardellini on the solid beam to rig heavier lights.

If in doubt, don't "hang" the light from the clamp, hang the weight of the light from something more substantial and just use the clamp as a mounting point for aiming the light.
That said, small units like Tweenies are usually pretty safe. Give the mounting point a test "tug" to see what flexes or gives before hanging anything from it.
