  • To open the transmitter (larger piece) there is a tab on the corner of both the top and bottom of the sensor. You may use a butter knife, coin, or fingernail on either one to separate the two pieces.
  • To remove the battery, push on the side of the battery near the positive symbol on battery cover to slide it out. The positive side should face up.
  • Once you have replaced the batteries, replace the cover by lining up the two halves and snapping it back together. You should hear an audible click to confirm the sensor is closed tightly.
