We have the the Frame television remote.  We cannot slide open the back to install the battery.

Used latex gloves, and solved the problem 👍

try using a rubber glove and pushing against the arrow...with traction, it opens easily!

....in theory, the remote opens easily.

In reality...it does not and is the worst example of poor design on a remote control ever.

It's cute looking though!

Thank you so much to the person who suggested sliding it with the palm of your hand instead of your thumb. This actually FINALLY worked!
