Properly adjusted, they will open just fine with a finger tip.

Make sure your O rings are in good shape and can slide easy on the taper as the cap tab is open and closed. If you can't open it with a finger tip, it is adjusted too tight or (and) the O ring is not sliding as it expands when you flip the tab down.

Adjusted too tight will cause extra strain on the hinge pin and it will fail.

What Larry said, I have had these on both RVs I have owned, they are much better than the original Usher caps. The bushings install with Proseal, needs 24 hours to cure properly before flying. Installation is straight forward.
