Thanks, I will use that method.

Yes, the instructions for removing the cover really frightened me. So
I experimented with a knife inserted in the slot and then swiped along
the crack and it worked well. I can now do it easily with a fingernail
 always inserted at the same place just below the Power button, and
never need to endanger the clips as the cover once loose lifts away.
The cover has not worked loose,  (and my fingernails are delicate).
The insertion point shows no sign of damage on the black one and  if I
look very hard a tiny bit  on the orange one. The latter has been done
countless times due to above need for frequent battery removal.
