Just connect the light to the halyard so that it hangs down about 6" to a foot, then tie a down-haul line to the halyard also. Hoist the light until you are out of cord and tie down-haul and halyard tight. Lamp hangs loosely from tie point. They work great. I used the tail end of the main halyard as a down-haul as it came back to the cockpit anyway and I could do it all from there.
