How do I go about removing the dome to replace the lights. I found online that similar light fixtures, one of the 3 "fingers" have a spring. But on mine, that doesn't seem to be the case. I tried, quite forcefully, pushing it in multiple directions, even at different angles. Nothing I've tried seems to work. I have no idea what brand light fixture these are, though Maxim do have similar looking ones.

  • Can the little tabs at the bottom of the white cylinders rotate/move in any way? Is the silver bit on top of the white cylinders a nut, screw, or bolt head? – Tester101 Oct 22 '14 at 10:47
  • The tabs do not move. There seems to be screws facing the ceiling. – Andy Oct 22 '14 at 13:02
  • Have you tried loosening the screws (using an offset screw driver might work), to see if the tabs move when the screws are loosened? – Tester101 Oct 22 '14 at 13:37
  • from your pic, it looks like there is a screw in each of the holders? just try unscrewing them.. – user24242 Oct 22 '14 at 16:43

those bits of metal you see on each claw are unlikely to be for fixing to the ceiling. they're probably fasteners for the claw to the base - which would indicate that the claws can be rotated (as to release the cover).
there might be a trick to their rotation such as only one direction or pull-down-then-rotate...
