Flush mount ceiling lights ??

Ok , I need some help ! I know you push up and turn to the left to remove the lens to get to the bulb. Are they all this tight ? So far lights 3 me 0 you really can't get a grip on them what does everyone on here use ? Do you use a rubber pad or just brute strength? Thanks for any help

I'm guessing it's a frosted glass lens. I have 2 sizes in the 5th. Some have been easy to turn and others a fierce struggle. Out of 15 (I think) maybe 3 were tough. I have used a rubber gripper with success. It's a short twist CCW to remove. They were originally halogen bulbs that I replaced with LED's so I've had them all off.

Good news, Clayton. I wonder if, during assembly, it's easier to just pound a lens on and not line up the pin/slot. Good luck!

They are a pain in most cases. The fixture itself is held in place by a couple of springs. In stubborn cases you can pry the whole fixture out all or part way out of the ceiling to get a better grip on the edge of the frosted lens. Use something flat to get between the white fixture flange and the ceiling and pry the fixture out. A warning: the springs are very stiff and if you go past the ceiling with the springs they will snap toward the lens and can chip the lens or possibly break it (don't ask me how I know this).

This is the type that our 2013 Pinnacle has. I don't know if later models are the same or similar.

I replaced all of our halogen bulbs with LED's and have been very pleased with the results. Lots better light. Ordered the LED bulbs from M4 Products. Good prices and all have proven to be reliable.

Make sure you tighten them back when replacing. I had one fall out and break when it hit the floor.
