Thanks for the link Bunny. You are Superwoman to do the install in 10 minutes.

I suffer from slight nerve damage in my hands as a result do not have 100% strength in the fingers. I used 2 flathead screw drivers one 3 1/2 inches the other 7 inches in length. Using these two I could wedge the 3 1/2" near the light (definitely the hardest clip) while using the 7" for the other clips.
