Come on now Jim...paperclips and paper clamps is not a safe way to suspend lights over your plants man! :-))

Looks like he "outboarded" the ballast.
It came as a put together kit and I had an electrician assemble it. That's the ballast! I tried other ways to prop up the light but this worked the best with what I have. Hey... it works...
You can buy different sorts of chain by the foot at most hardware store. Find a thin wire coat hanger and make S hooks from that and you'll have a more secure setup.
