Stove top exhaust flapper

I'm having problems opening the stove top exhaust flapper door. Don't want to break them. Do the opening tabs slide down or flip out? Thanks for your response. Merry Christmas!!!

They are a pain. You have to push really hard.

You have to try to push up and sort of "out" at the same time. PITA most times.

I'm given up for the night. Will try again in the morning. Thanks for the assistance. It shouldn't that this hard to open a vent door. The two little swivel arms on the older doors were much easier.

Once you get it open you will realize they are not that hard. Just up and out a little harder than you think.

Use caution. I broke one of the tabs. I just leave it open all the time now. It took 2 technicians during the walk through to get it open.

The swiveling tabs on the Heng's vent flap of our 2011 Sunseeker were easy to use, but the flap itself was a piece of junk. The plastic hinge pins were too small and broke easily. Forget to latch it and the pins would break off when you drove.

I had one break due to gusty wind even with the latches in place. After the third breakage I replaced the plastic pins with a piece of stainless steel rod. Some replaced them with small hinges.
