Ellipsoid dismantle help.

Hello All,

how do you remove the adjusters from ellipsoids? When you look at the back side of the adjuster ( the front of the light) they are clearly locked in place by a little tab.

Is the only way to get them out is to break them?

Trying to dismantle the lights.


Thanks

Turn the tab so it fits through the opening.

They usually break when you try to move them so be careful.

Turn it around, I think it's on the other side.

Send a message via MSN to craz azn
^ +1 what he said. Use some needle nose pliers to fit in there and carefully twist. You only need to turn it a 1/4 turn to get it to pop out.
