Mounting LED shop light

I purchased a 4 ft LED shop light (5000 lumen) from Harbor Freight and found the light to be great, However,it comes with a chain and hook for mounting. I would like to know if you can remove the bulb from these LED lights and access the interior to screw them to the ceiling.

I have also with flourescent fixtures, but I did not know if you can just remove "LED" bulbs from the fixture. It appears that the end caps can be removed. Is this how you remove an LED bulb?

Depends. some are sealed within their housing. And many don't even have enough space in the housing to use a screw. If you want LED fixtures rigidly fixed to ceiling you need to get the kind that are replaceable.

Also depends where the power cord enters the fixture.

I mounted a 4' fixture inside my sand blast cabinet, took it apart and found that the LED strips are just glued to the inside of the housing, no bulb, nothing replaceable, short of installing new strips of LED's!

I should not have said "bulb" I meant the diffuser, or at least what appears to be a diffuser. I think I will just see if I can open one and go from there. A big thanks to all for the help. I really appreciate it.
