Recently my bathroom's light bulb died and I need to remove the fixture that covers it. However, this thing's got me completely stumped. I have no idea whatsoever how to remove it!
I've noticed the dome has a slot on one of its sides (see picture below) but I don't really understand its purpose. So far I've tried twisting the fixture clock and anticlockwise whilst pressing upwards and not pressing at all (just rotating). I've also tried a couple things with the slot itself to no avail.
Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.
Here are a few pictures of the fixture (apologies for the bad quality, I had to take them from funny angles and without any lighting but the flash):
From the look it seems to simply clip in place, penny or large screwdriver in the slot and twist forces both parts apart and simply push back in place after. I really hate them as often you end up marking the fitting as you remove the cover.
