Cateye Strada

Does anyone know how to open the battery box on the main unit? I don't seem to have the touch. It looks like the cover needs to be turned, but I haven't been able to do it.

On the Cateye Strata subject - does anybody know how to set the time? The only way I was able to do it when it was new was to default the unit at precisely 1:00. I'd prefer not to lose my odometer reading to account for the end of daylight savings time.

I have two Cateye products and both have a battery cover that has a slot to insert a coin for twisting off (rightie-tightie, lefty loosey). But I suppose that would be too obvious or you wouldn't have posted the question...

Ooh, look! Instructions for a Cateye product with actual words on it! And one or two diagrams that aren't impossibly confusing!

The cover is just stuck.
Do a quick turn with something that fits Good in the slot.

^^^
If I'm looking at the illustration correctly (at the bottom of the page of 10 Wheels' link), it looks like the cover pops off by pressing down on the edge, no? I agree that it's stuck because it should just be some sort of friction fit.

Looks like you just need to push down on the edge of the top.
