1. The snap switch is garbage. On all of mine eventually the switch would start to get extremely hot, as in when I went to turn it off it would have burned my finger to hold it on the switch for more than a second. Then ultimately the spring or whatever is inside the snap switch would break and the unit would not turn on at all rendering it useless. The snap switch feature was the main reason I picked these lamps.
2. The wiring to the bulb socket became intermittent on two of the lamps. The wiring had to be sitting at just the right angle for the bulb to work. Sometimes the bulb would randomly turn off and I had to fiddle with the wiring where it goes to the bulb socket to get it working again.
3. The clamp itself is just barely adequate for holding the lamp in position. If you wrench it down tighter with a pair of pliers it seems to then be able to hold the unit. But you can't move it around too much without it loosening up.
I replaced these with some brushed aluminum units from the local big box hardware store at half the cost with 3 prong grounded plugs. Granted they do not have a snap switch so I simply plugged them into an outlet strip with a switch.
This is a well made, good quality heat lamp which comes with a clamp that easily clamps onto just about anything. It also has a wire hook so that it can be hung instead of clamped. It also has a guard on the front of the hood to help prevent fires in case the light falls.
I've been happy with this lamp and have used it many times with no problems.
So I had to take the clamp assembly back off. I had to use the "U" shaped hanger it came with to hang it from chains and eye hooks from the ceiling above the reptile aquarium and screen lid. I had to find the stud in the ceiling...not fun.
It might hold up a glass bulb's weight? That's questionable.
Make this from thicker metal, or at least reinforce the holes so they don't rip wider and allow the wires to push through.
