New LED lights

Any idea how to open up the newer oval shaped LED light fixtures. Although I will likely never have to change am LED lamp, I would like to open them up to remove debris and bugs and I don't want to break anything.

I am interested in the answer to this also. The obvious answer is "pry under it with a flat tool" but the edge of the cover is flush with the soft ceiling so that all the pry tool will do is dig into the ceiling. I managed to get ONE off and looking underneath there is no obvious tab or area that one should use to remove these.

All of mine have little bits of foam in them that I would love to remove.

New LED lights

Squeeze them on the ends and pull down while doing so. Once you figure it out the rest are easy.
You can use a small screw driver but be very careful not to damage the housing.

Hmmm ... you mean push inwards on the rounded ends and pull down?

Can't believe it is that simple. I suppose that should cause the mid-length to want to bow outwards and release any catch-points along the sides.

Oh it's not easy but yup. That's it. Some are easier than others. Pulled all mine down and cleaned them out. There is just as much styrofoam in them now as there was before. The a/c blows it on there and boy did my a/c crank last weekend.

Thanks for the confirmation. My Styrofoam does not seem to be increasing shop when I clean them out I hope to not have accumulation too fast.

It seems once you have run the a/c for a while it will stop from happening. Probably just junk in the venting in the ceiling from manufacturing. Once it's filtered out we no longer have to clean out the lights.

Yep, all over the place the first two trips out. Drove the DW nuts. Still haven't cleaned out one light by the door.

Even the dog had styrofoam on her. DW was wondering what she was getting into. Simple...just falls out of the ceiling.
