Trouble opening battery door

Hi all, I just picked up my Hero3... noticed the battery door is extremely hard to open after the battery is inserted. Anyone else experiencing this? Is there a workaround to be able to open the door easier?

I tried holding it upside down and then shaking it but it won't fall out. It pops up very very very slightly but it's not enough at all to grab the lip to pull the door. I resorted to flipping it up with a knife.... which is not at all ideal
