Here you can use this to mount right to an aluminum plate to your camera tripod. As you see the assembly simply screws off so you don't even need to get the screws, just drill the right size holes diagonally and mount. Diagonally the fixture measures about 5.7" or 4" square so the top aluminum strip (that holds light fixture) should be at least 7" long, bent 2" high and I leave 7" again for bottom.

The new design leaves the 2 bulbs fully independent from each other and both bulbs will be fully adjustable to the correct height with ease plus it's very stable and will last a long time.

Items and tools required

Dutch Barn style reflector, you will want one with the aluminum strip that runs up the back of the shade, pictures below.
A pair of pliers
Drill
Angle grinder
Camera tripod
Drill bit, bolt, & nut that need to be the correct size to fit through the tripods small mount piece.
That's what makes this one of my favorite ideas for stacked bulbs. Fully adjustable and nothing hanging at all is blocking the lights. Thanks again Hundred Gram Oz!

I bought an e40 lamp fitting for $3 and wired my own but it has to be hung from the ceiling this looks a good solution for my bottom lamp and hang the top one

Top marks
