hero 8 cant open battery hatch

I have bought this new and I had a terrible time getting the flap open to charge and insert battery and card, now I still have trouble opening and closing it again. I havent even tried to set up the camera. I am really disappointed. I am not thick, but maybe not enough strenght in fingers?

The minimal printed information in the pack is not clear enough. Now the hatch doesnt appear to sit flush with the camera - but I have no way of knowing this unless I send you photos, or I plunge it into a bucket of water. I here are images.

It would seem to me to be a design fault, as I notice that loads of people have the same problem as me.
