I am looking at getting an LLS and I want to use it to measure the volume in my mixing containers. Is there any way to mount it that doesn't require putting holes in the tank? I am aware it comes with a mounting clip I just wonder If anyone has any ideas to maybe magnetically mount it or something of the sort.

They are in the process I heard of making magnetic clips and euro brace clips

I am ready to purchase a few of these, but have the same problem- cannot mount the current clip on sump or ATO tank. Hopefully, they will come out with the mounts soon as I think they will sell a lot more of these if the mounting was not so limited.

This is what I had done with Matt over at octoaquatics.

Via set screw to hold in place.

That’s awsome! I would totally pay for that. I did have a similar ish idea to do it with my 3D printer, but I couldn’t figure it out with the magnets. How are you embedding the magnets into it?

There is a prototype clip coming out to resolve this made by Ecotech introduced at MACNA
I too need this type to make it work

I didn’t do it, Octoaquatics did, I just contacted him for some custom work for these new LLS. As he does on all his accessories, his crazy strong N52 magnets are placed inside a milled out acrylic and sealed shut so the magnet will never come in contact with water and cause any issues. I use his stuff on all my setup and I have not had one fail yet. His stuff is top notch, if I need a magnet, he’s my guy.

That’s got me excited then too! I refuse to get them until I know I can mount them.
Same here - I had to pass on the show special because I had no means to mount them
