Mounting Hanging Fixture on Sloped Ceiling

I just bought a hanging fixture, the hanging part is rigid so it will not hang straight on the sloped ceiling. See the pics. Is there an adapter that will allow it to hang straight? Or is there something I can add to the ceiling to create a horizontal place for the existing fixture. Any ideas? I looked at ceiling fan adapters but they didnt seem right.

Rigid hanging fixtures for sloped ceilings are sometimes made with a pivot point so that they can skew. Yours does not... it is solely made for flat ceilings... so you bought the wrong item. Most commonly a pendant light will hang from a swivel and chain or if it is solid, it may have an adapter with a short length of chain above the rigid portion so that it can hang plumb.

understood - I know ceiling fans have adapters - wondering it lighting fixtures do as well?
