How to install LED power supply for strip lighting


I'm looking at using two of these led bars:
https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...Specifications
The longest one is rated at 960 mA. I need two, so about 2 A.

On this page, a number of power sources (need 12 v):
https://www.superbrightleds.com/cat/...ttage,6,84,25:

I don't see an easy way of permanently installing the light bars' power supply. Do you just use low voltage staples and build a little shelf or something to hold up the transformer? It seems like it would similarly go against the logic of permanently using an extension cord.

My 120v AC source will come from an existing 4" round box that the existing single bulb light originates from.

Thanks for any suggestions.
