Trying to replace a lamp on the far right side and I can't for the life of me get the fixture to twist and lock in. Am I suppose to squeeze the gray tabs. I can feel it set at about 20 to 30 degrees, but when I twist it doesn't lock in.

Can someone provide an immediate solution?

You probably don't have the ring set to the correct location. There is only one way that the tabs will engage the reflector. Any other position and it will not lock. Try rotating the ring first.

You are correct sir! I had it in the wrong position. One needs to be certain the tab ring is set to the '0' position, set the connector in place with the rubber sealing ring flush, then twist the tab to position'1'. A task that should have taken ten minutes took an hour and forty minutes (Good thing I'm retired).
