I have trouble removing the cover for this light:




A related link mentioned that one of the claws is spring loaded. However, when I tried pulling on it, it seems to be stuck.

Do I need a special tool?

  • It may be that pushing that tab releases the claw. – Jim Stewart Jul 21 '18 at 16:18
  • I just tried both pulling and pushing the tab. However, it doesn't seem to work for me. – Alertnetone Jul 21 '18 at 16:50
  • Try pulling down to see if that releases the claw. – Jim Stewart Jul 21 '18 at 21:42

    the claw should pull straight out of the retainer .... the spring probably pushes into a hole in the claw and you have to overcome the force of the spring – jsotola Jul 21 '18 at 22:42
  • ”...it seems to be stuck” Bingo! – Tyson Jul 21 '18 at 23:29
