I just "fixed" up my brooder lamp. I have a real issue with how flimsy the clamp is!! So I went to walmart and purchased an automotive clamp light (appx $8). Reason being: the automotive clamp is AWSOME!! Next I detached the clamp from the brooder lamp. Then I replaced it with the clamp from the automotive light. This is so much better!! But I will still chain it as a fail safe. Why dont they just manufacture the brooder lamps with heftier clamps???
