How to mount Arcadia ProT5?

I just received my Arcadia ProT5 24" fixture. It's very nice but the only mounting hardware provided was two flimsy metal clips with no instructions. I tried to snap them on to the fixture but they wouldn't go, and didn't want to risk forcing it. There are no holes or places to attach hooks or zip ties. The Pargea listing https://www.pangeareptile.com/store/arcadia-prot5-uvb-kit.html has photo instructions but they don't clarify much. Couldn't find anything on YouTube. Any ideas?

Please use this to hang--- https://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-15-ft-Cable-Ties-Hook-and-Loop-Spool-Black-10375/304220195 this stuff works great its like a Velcro strap cut into strips and wrap around the fixture or you can use these things as well 3 M command Velcro fasteners- picture hanging wire –
long plastic zip ties-- fishing line or potted plant wire hangers
distance should be 12-15 inches directly above the basking decor inside the tank

thanks Karrie... to clarify, the straps / wires / hangers will go around the fixture and bulb, hanging from the top? Seems like it would rub against the bulb and possible break it.

Are the clips that come with the fixture not useful?

I don't have a pro T 5 so I am not familiar w/ the fixture but those straps around the fixture should not break the bulb- I am using the zoo med fixture and I have had zero issues w/ the straps around mine
