I purchased 2 of these and then when to Lowes to find a screw that I could hang these from my ceiling. For about $[$] I got some "wall hanger screws" with wood threads on one side and 3/8 machine screw on the other side.

Too long for the Impact FRC-RL19

Even this stubby fellow was to long to be accommodated by the vertical mounting opening of the Impact FRC-RL19 ring light

      What can you say about a spigot, it's threaded 1/4 on one side and 3/8 on the other side. And it works!

                Not much can be said about a spigot. It seems to be machined well and the threads are good. It connects to others as it should and hold the lights as needed for this type of item.

                            I wish extra adapters were included with some of the umbrella holders. Still, this does the job and the price is right.
