Is there a US source for this light?

I really like the way the bracket attaches to the tank and raises the light. It's much more secure than what is offered with the wire extendable brackets like what comes with, for instance, this light:

I have a light with those brackets and it's almost wound up in the water a few times. Plus it would be so nice to get the light up off the top of the tank more.

I've tried to find just the brackets and no luck there either.

Don't have a source for you but a recommendation; https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016P96UA8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I have one on my 55 and one on my 29. they come in 2 color frequencies. The footings are solid. The 5600 is great for my plants. They are dimmable and I was able to adapt them to work with my Reef-Pi/Leviathan controller to run timed and programmed dimming cycles. I've had prettier lights that looked good but didn't do very well on the plants, just grew algae really well. Good luck - enjoy the journey.

I like the bracket much better. It resembles a Finnex, which is much more stable than the usual wire brackets offered on our lights in the US. I can't believe I haven't run into Beamswork before. Thanks for the suggestion.

Still holding out hope for a bracket that raises the light higher above the tank though.

You can get risers for Finnex and Fluval lights on Etsy. They are generally good quality. If you use a less popular brand or one with those wire brackets, probably better off investing into an actual hanger that either attaches to back of tank, wall, or sits behind the tank. Might be able to find a generic riser somewhere that would work with any light though.

I like the beamsworks as well, very sturdy lights and a good price. I have 4 of them right now.

Perfect!
They even have them for the wire bracket lights.
Thanks!

I've got a current light I'll get the short risers for. My new tank I want the light up higher and they make taller risers, too.

Awesome! glad you found some that look like they will work with the wire brackets! Let us know how they hold up, I prefer risers as well for my lights and right now have too much random duct tape and wires hanging all over to hold lights up above tanks! Would be nice to have a cleaner look and probably something that's more stable as well.

Big thumbs' up to this product.
I got a set for my 20g high and he adjusted the holes to fit my Hygger, which was different than the Hygger he has in his store. So measure before you buy.

I run my tanks without a lid and the stock wire bracket slid much to easily on my rimmed tank. When I locked the wire brackets into these risers and then adjusted for the width of my tank it got rid of that slipperiness I had been experiencing. Much more secure. Highly recommend until that time we can get lights here in the US like the one I linked above.

Granted it would be nicer if they were clear and not black... :)
