How to remove the cover from the fluorescent light fixture in my closet

Below is the picture of the cover.




The 工 shape thing is blocking me from taking the cover off.
How to remove the cover from the fluorescent light fixture?

Thanks.

Turn the H thing 90 degrees (oddly its called a quarter turn) and pull down on the cover. The 1/4 turn is a little spring loaded so it will just pop out of a oval hole. Sometimes it helps to grab it with a pliers and pull down (after turning it first)

And those "H" sun-of-a-guns are escape artists. Careful to hold on to them as you take the cover down are they will drop and hide where you least expect them to be.
