I see that the battery doesn't come with this drill but would still like to know how the battery releases. Some not-so-compact drills have batteries that are heavy and release by grasping the outer edges which isn't possible for me as I have arthritis in both thumbs. Thanks
Asked by: granolahead
Sometimes i use my irwin clamp to pinch the battery edges. The battery comes off easy with this trick.

Has Ridgid been honoring the LSA (Lifetime Service Agreement) that they advertise on their products? Just bought this product and when I came to register it for the LSA (Lifetime Service Agreement), I learned that my previous Ridgid purchases which I registered for the LSA were not in fact provided with the LSA, instead, they only provided me with a 3-year warranty. Completely took the joy out of my new purchase! Fortunately, I still have boxes & receipts for my previous purchases & they all advertise LSA. I confirmed the I provided all of the requested information (serial numbers, model numbers, copy of receipts, etc...). I hope that this is just an error, but it's very frustrating!
