Default Trailer Brake Light ID?

Can anyone ID this brake light and tell me how to remove the plasti-chrome surround to get at the heads of the mounting screws so I can replace the bulb (or maybe it's an LED and I'll replace the entire light fixture, not sure)? It's on a 2015 Sport Trail. My Google-fu has come up empty so far. I tried prying the surround off from around the edges but it felt like I might break it.

It’s LED. My Owens trailers had similar lights but with a rubber bezel. You could pry them out with a flathead screwdriver. Guessing the aluminum bezel can be treated the same way.

Oval is pretty standard. It could be that the "light" portion is independent from the plasti-chrome surround. See if you can get the light to wiggle independently from the surround. There might be a rubber gasket that is holding the light into the surround by nothing more then pressure.

Trying to pry both the light and the surround out at the same time could possibly damage the surround if the surround is held in by tab. If they are in fact 2 separate pieces, the light would prevent the bezel from flexing inward, which it needs to do on install/removal.

I believe that Sport Trail uses lights made by TecNiq exclusively.
Looks like one of these: TecNiq | Truck & Trailer
They have optional bezels for some of these models. I didn't see any details as to how they come off or go on, which tells me it must be simple. I'd call Sport Trail or TecNiq.
