I have new batteries, but I cannot open the back, the last time I forced it and I had to buy a new one. There must be a knack to it does anyone have the link or knowledge how to get the bloody back off without breaking it

Lol you press the button down. Get the remote in your hand turn it upside down so the clip is facing upwards place your thump over the clip push down and lift the clip

Don't thump it, or it will definitely break!

I have one that is almost impossible to open. I had to get the instructions out when I first got it to make sure I was doing it properly! It isn't clear which way to press the little catch and the even when you press it the right way the back refuses to budge. I had to get a screwdriver to it in the end. It is an appaling design IMHO

But the battery cover never comes off when you drop the remote - which happens on every other remote I have.

There is a definite knack to it but when you done it once it gets easier.

This gets me every time, yet I always forget the next time. I always assume the hinge for the flap is the end of the control, opposite to where the bit you press is, but in fact it's the opposite way round, push the flap in then lift the cover from the end of the remote control, and it's really easy.

i find it really easy... it is a bt stiff but... turn it onto the back and the rubber black end at the top. put your hand around the rubber bit, pull the plastic thing down. done pullin down holding the bottom of the remote with your othr hand, pull it towards you. make sure you pull hard, and there you go,,,thats my way anyway.
