Ceiling Lights

What is the trick to taking these covers off or does the entire fixture pull out? Trying not to break anything ��

I haven't done it, but have read that they just twist off.

Mine just pop off using the blade of my small pocket knife and then just press back on with my fingers.

More than one type used by keystone. Believe they all will pull out from ceiling to aid in removing lens.

If you find them hard to grab onto, use a small square of rubber shelf liner. Works a treat to hold on to it while twisting. Pretty easy once you know how to get the first one off.

Smile ceiling lights

I found that I had to twist mine back and forth a few times to free them up. they appeared to be stuck but eventually was able to take them all off for cleaning. Have patience.

Push up and twist. Some of them are very hard. Once you get it off there are 3 metal tabs that you need to bend down a little. Then the next time it will come off easy.

We have a 2017 39050BR and ours were so tight when I pulled down the whole fixture came out. I then pulled the lens cover off and re-attached it with the two mounting screws moved into a different location. Easy to do once I figured mine were a pull straight down.
