Multimeter design fail

The monkeys got my multimeter article has an interesting video that shows a really crappy design aspect of this IDEAL multimeter.

Was this caused by a design or specification problem is hard to say. Very probably, for an economy DMM like this one, the ability to operate the buttons without rear support (i.e. your own hand) was not included in the product requirements document. Therefore, at the product design verification and validation phases, this stupid design seemed to be correct…
