I have 25 can lights of various widths in a suspended ceiling in an office. All of the cans have old work frames which are screwed into the suspended ceiling frame metal. What is the easiest way to remove these? Get a right angle ratchet / driver and take out each screw attached to the framing (tight space in the ceiling, gonna be akward to get at screws vs being in attic) or dremel / snip apart the frame and leave the screwed in bits? I'm putting in flat modern LEDs with the spring clips so I could leave the framing bits in the ceiling and wouldn't harm anything. Any other approaches?
This is approximately what this looks like. (Not my office, but same idea)
The red lines are the brackets on the new construction light. The yellow lines are the screws into the ceiling grid frame.
If I access the light on either panel to the left or right, it's hard to get at the screws because you need like a right angle ratchet (not impossible though)
