A: the opening was 1 inch smaller than what the panel is - that is by measurement the hole is 6x9 the actual panel is larger than that - total like it should be

A: a flat head screw driver works well. It is easy to do but holds tight also. I just use the screw driver and it pops open. It does deter others from opening which was my goal
A: Large flathead screwdriver works pretty well.
A: A flat tipped screw driver works well. Just place the tip in one of the grooves on the side of the door, push in, and pull the door out. Excessive force may scratch the plastic.
A: Screw driver to pry it open.
A: Yes you actually could, but you should cut the tiles and put ont he cover this will allow you access
A: The access panel is designed for use in sheetrock walls. If you use a tile trim piece to finish at the edge of the flush panel it should work. I would not recommend placing tile over it as you need to use a screwdriver To pop the access door off and my put too much pressure at or near your tile.
