I live in a dorm and my ceiling lamp died, i wanted to know how to remove this cover? it is attached flush to the ceiling, i tried rotating it both ways and also tried pulling it, but it wont come off. I noticed that its feels a bit springy when I pull it, but I fear i will break it if i pull it too hard. can anyone help me??
Pull harder, it probably has a couple of metal arms holding it in place. http://technical.sabhlokcity.com/2013/11/how-to-open-twist-off-the-cover-of-some-really-stupid-awkward-flush-mounted-ceiling-light-dome-fittings-fixture-to-replace-change-light-bulb/
