Problem seating Batteries in Lightning Detector

AAA Batteries will not seat correctly, (I've tried several batteries and they seem not to be the problem) which keeps me from closing the battery cover on my Lightning Detector and ,of course, I can't reinstall the belt clip either. I'm using quite a bit of force and I'm afraid that any more force or using a wedge will break my brand new detector. Any help would be much appreciated. BTW, I've been successfully installing batteries of all types for over 40 years. Feeling frustrated

Hello John,

What brand of batteries are you using? Have you tried another brand? Does something seem unusual inside of the battery compartment? Thank you.
