    Just take a piece of wire, make a small loop for the screw, and bigger loop for the tube.
    Done

    these clips are crap. They heat up and become brittle. But you get what you pay for and a DIY solution is so easy and simple.

    Thank you perky pets. Appreciate your help. Please confirm tomorrow and revert back on my thread please.

    My lfs also said 30 a peice but didnt sound like they were explaining right part. I hope you dont mind I am gona check with them again but doubt its the right stuff.

    Good service counts for more doesnt it..

    I am worried wire may damage tubes performance.

    how?

    Aquamedic units and other better quality units use a steel clip to hold the light. And that does nothing. How can a wire that is way thinner than the steel clip impact the tube. The end caps are not the type that screws down. So they can move a lot.
