The link above shows my shower light ceiling fixture looking straight
up and from the side. As you can see there is nothing really to grab
tho I tried to twist it without success and then I tried to pull it
down but it seemed like it was fighting me. It's fairly snug against
the ceiling and it's never been disturbed. I'm guessing it needs to
be pulled down??? If so, just wondering what to use so I don't ruin
the ceiling? I don't really have fingernails.
It should just pull down, but it *is* going to fight you because it's
There are probably two V-shaped springs that go into a small slot and
then expand to hold the ring tight to the ceiling,
However, with that said, there is no guarentee that you won't pull
some paint off with it. You could try running a blade around/just
under the ring to cut any stuck paint as a precaution.
You could also try sliding the ring from side to side a bit. If it
slides, then odds are it's not stuck to the paint.
