Just finished my DIY wall mount for my new Radion xr15 G5 Pro. Main feature of this wall mount is its ability of being swivel, easy access to tank cleaning, aquascape, etc.
And cost less than $50. ($30 TV wall mount + $10 RMS G5 mount adapter for xr15 + $3 screws and washers).
Note: it's so weird that both Ecotech Marine Xr15 G5 and the RMS G5 Adapter do NOT include any screw (except the 4 screws for hanging cable) for mounting the RMS adapter to xr15 G5. I guess if you do not buy their expensive $100 RMS tank mount then you are SCREWED!

Good job. I'd like to do something similar with a light since I can't hang it from overhead. I need some type of wall mount, so this might do the trick.

Btw, What filter are you running on that tank? Hob with a skimmer?

The HoB refugium was made by CRP; I painted with black plastic to block light escpaping from chaeto chamber. Aattached a LED light on back of refugium for growing chaetos. Aqua Max NF-1 nano skimmer in the refugium.

What screws did you end up getting to mount the bracket to the light?

I used M5-0.8 (length) with a washer. Without a washer it is a bit too long for the hole. With a washer, it fits perfectly!!!

I was just wondering where you purchased your wall mount for your Radion R15 G5 lights and would you know the model number for the wall mount
Much appreciated

Hi,

Sorry, I can't find any purchase history or invoice info from Amazon archives. Too old, i guess. I didn't save box and no brand name on the arm.

I bought this from Amazon. I chose the 23 inches long arm. Amazon should have dozens of choices of different arm lengths.

That's a sweet diy!
Thank for your kind words. This TV swivel hanger is very versatile. I am using the same hanger for hanging 2x Uno 2 Pro LEDs. Just swing it to aside for cleaning maintenance.
