The docking plate allows Lotus Light to be used without the clip. It can be mounted using the included VHP adhesive pad or screws.
Mounting Clips Are A Great Alternative

I've been using the Lotus light for a few years now, but always with the provided clip. I recently ordered a few of the clips and love them because you can attach them lower on the music stand, which makes a cleaner profile overall. I use a few different styles of folding stands and put mounting clips on all of them. I'm very happy they added this item as an option.
