Overhead ceiling lights

OK, I am stumped on how to remove glass halfdome overhead light to clean and replace bulb. There are no set screws, the glass does not unscrew, etc. What am I missing?

If your lights are like these they slide off.

Nope, not this. Totally round. I will try to catch a photo later today. Thanks for trying!

If they are totally round and made of real glass, then they do unscrew about a half turn to come off in your hand. Take a butter knife if you have a vinyl ceiling and gently slide in between the glass and the headliner and work your way around the lens to free it from the ceiling material. Sometimes they tend to stick to the ceiling material and make it harder to take off.

We had one just like that in our motorhome and it did turn about 1/4 turn and then drop out, but it can be very difficult to do when it has not been off for a long time.

Push up slightly and turn to the left, use a hammer as a last resort

Well, I tried and yes it is very difficult. Impossible actually! Out of 5 lights only able to get one off, so you are right. Of course the one I got off is not the burned out bulb one! Someone suggested a hammer. My frustration level may not work safely with that weapon.

most hardware stores carry a suction cup made for removing light bulbs.
you would be surprised how much more leverage you can get with one

Great idea! My friend at the glass shop might have one of the larger suction cups with lever.

Rubber gloves might help you get a grip.
