Changing batteries in XR11 remote

How do I open the XR11 remote to change batteries? The back does not want to come off and I don't want to force it.

Mine is tough to open too (but I kind of like that becase I have had remotes where the cover falls off too easily)

If you use the heel of your hand to press down on the cover while you attempt to push it off, it should open up for you.

There is a slight area on the back that is raised up.  It is intended to help to slide the cover down.  On new remotes, I have had to press pretty hard against it to get it to slide down.

I am just a customer, volunteering my time to help other customers here in the Forums.
