They might be sturdy enough, but the problem is going to be how you mount the light to the top.
That spigot, for want of a more accurate term probably, isn't going to be much use without some sort of matching connector, which itself will have to be attached to the light.
Just stick with worklights, at least then you know the screw that keeps the horizontal bar on, can be used to attach a floodlight's bracket to just the stand.
Less faffing about for the sake of spending a few quid more!

My yellow tripod broke from the weight of metal halide on it.

Plus wasn't very steady. There fine for halogens but a 150w halide is fair bit heavier.

I got some heavy duty tripods :eek:

That stand must've been really flimsy to break with only the extra weight of the MH flood on it – never had an issue like that with either the blue Silverline or yellow B&Q stands.

The plastic bit where the leg screws in broke. Rolson tripod.

It's was wobbly up high too and you couldn't put it right up with 150w halide on it. It would just fall over

Anyway got some decent fit for purpose ones coming
