My task today was to change the light bulbs of a hanging lantern that we have on our porch. I simply cannot determine how to get to the actual light bulbs.
I've tried turning the bottom finial, which loosens the post in the middle, but that doesn't seem to work. I've also tried turning the bottom finial while holding in place the top, but I have no luck there either. The bottom portion will just keep turning and never gets fully loose.
The glass fits too well to be opened and there is no latch. There are also no recessed or exposed bolts or screws anywhere to loosen the top or bottom.
Multiple searches and installation manuals were not able to give me the answer so I'm crowdsourcing this.
I would love it if someone would be able to help me change a light bulb...
