Simple once you know how. Hold BOTH ends of the remote, squeeze both ends gently and slide forwards

I agree. Sometimes, the new plastic pieces have micro texture edges resulting from the fresh cutting from the making of the pieces that give it a bit of a grip against each piece to where you will need to use something that allows you grip it better, like rubber gloves, or even a rubber band. I too had serious trouble opening it the very first time. I used latex gloves to open mine once, after that I could open it easily with bare hands. If you put a rubber band on your thumb and push it open that way, my bet is that it will open for you.
