I currently have two mars hydro tsl2000's in a 5x5 tent. I'm going into flower and am bumping up my watts with two blurples that draw 145w each. My problem is, I can't hang them how I want without another support bar. Unfortunately no one seems to make an extra support bar for a 5x5. I was thinking of pvc pipe or something but I don't know how to secure it better than some Gorilla tape. Anyone have any ideas?

I bought a fusion tent with extra bar from growlights.ca it only gives more anchor points but doesn’t give you any more weight bearing. I use these to hang lights from

Then you can move lights around easily. If it was holding more then 50lbs I’d secure as well with a good zip tie 100lb rated

I'd just link some 24" zipties together.
My issue is I can't hang those zip ties to anything. The lights I have are rectangular so the space in between is a rectangle. The only extra bar I have is going the opposite direction and is responsible for holding the carbon filter and extraction fan. I could hang one light from it but not two. I guess I could move my fan and filter outside of the tent and move the bar, it would just be a pain.

1/2" conduit. Measure the length so you overlap the poles on each side... squish the ends flat in a vice then slip a crescent wrench over the end or use pliers/vice grips and bend them a bit so they hook over the top of the end poles.... slip into place and done.
