Battery Cover at the back is worst

I am from India and I bought this digital thermometer for my 3-year-old Kid. The temperature reading is very fast and responsive. Only the frustrating thing is the round battery cover at the back which keeps popping out open. I am not able to close it properly and it gets stuck at the corner. Finally, I tried to open with the screwdriver and now it's permanently damaged.

No, I don't recommend this product
