yes. these lights have a spring loaded mechanism. You have to pry out the light cover.... use a flathead screwdriver with tape to prevent scratching the aluminum. You'll understand once you get it out...... there's a lot of tension to these spring loaded arms......

The gap between the inner and outer ring bezels can be small. I have found if I start with a razor knife edge and then switch to the plastic door jamb pry tools it works well.

How to remove cabinet LED

I found the point of the nail file on my Swiss Army (Macgyver) knife worked well. Gently wiggle the point in, then twist slightly to pop the ring loose. A piece of blue painters tape next to the ring where you pry first will help prevent scratches. Be careful, the retaining springs are strong and the edges are sharp in the hole.

I tried a box-cutter style utility knife and found the blade was not long enough to easily get under the ring without the handle rubbing on the ceiling and outer ring. The point on my nail file blade is slightly bent and very thin so it goes in easy.

When the light comes free the springs can hit fingers much like a mouse trap.

Is taking it all with you, really getting away from it all?
