The worst remote I have as far as changing batteries goes, is that for the Amazon Firestick. I usually have to go into the garage to get a vinyl glove (useful for when I get round to painting the woodwork here). That’s the only way I can seem to get enough traction on the d*mned thing to push it off. Why doesn’t it have any ridges on it to give better traction. (sigh)
Having read comments previously, I had wrongly thought “surely it’s not so hard“?
However, having just tried to open my own remote, it was impossible! Sliding a piece of plastic around the edges did indeed get it moving and I can now change my battery
However, having changed the battery, mine is still virtually impossible to open again, so I will have to resort to the thin piece of plastic trick next time it needs changing!
