Removing trim from recessed lighting


It might sounds like a stupid question for most of you, but I cannot figure out how to remove the trim from my recessed lights. On the trim, I can read that they are from "Capri Lighting" but I cannot find anything from their web site.

Anyone has experience with them?

If they are "Snap Rings", you just have to pull the rings off.

A) Pull down

B) Pull down evenly with a twisting motion.

Sometimes there are springs or spring clips. Other times there is a twist lock kind of setup.

Humm, I tried to pull them pretty hard already, but nothing is coming off When I pull, I feel the light socket is also coming down with the trim!

I will try to take some pictures and post them up.
