How To Access Ceiling Light Fixture Bulbs

If anyone knows how this ceiling light fixture is opened to access
the light bulbs, please let me know. Not sure if the whole thing lowers, or if one end or side lowers on a hinge or something. Any help is appreciated.Name:  light.jpg

Is that a square or round fixture ?

I would say the whole thing comes down in one shot. Sometimes you have to push up the lens and push it to one side.

Yeah, I would try to push up on the lens, move it to one long side or the other, the see if it that side will drop down. You might have to push up as high as almost rubbing the ceiling.

3. Will the whole thing rotate? (Have someone help you, holding the opposite side.) Push up slightly as you try to rotate it so it does not fall if it disengages suddenly after being rotated a little.

4. Maybe it "simply" pulls straight down and snaps free. But don't quickly go ahead and try this. If you hold it in the wrong places while you pull down, it may break in half all the way across just as it disengages. You would have to get a hold of the instructions to find out where to hold it as you pull down.

5. Do the 4 thin bars slide in their entirety from side to side one at a time and when all are removed the fixture cover is loose?
