Hi Ann,

I hope you mind me butting in on your post to Kayleigh.

When I had difficulty opening the push-button of my microwave, I used a key grip without a key - my thumb and fingers were too weak to push the button in hard enough for it to open, but I could grip the key grip firmly and had enough shoulder & arm strength to use the key grip to open the microwave. I also used various utensils, such as a wooden spoon, if the key grip wasn't at hand!

IDK if something like that would work for you?

Love Ellie.
