How to grab survivors

Hey ! I have played A LOT as killer, and everytime I grab someone I don't know how I did it. I have missed many opportunities like survivors opening hatch or survivors opening doors or rescuing from hook but I start pressing buttons and sometimes I grab and other times I miss (most of the time I miss)...  May you help me?

Xbox player:)

    Basically you just click the same button as you'd hit them normally.

    If the survivors keep doing their activity (keep opening the exit gates, repairing gens,....), you'll grab them automatically.

    If the survivors let go from the gen (which is most likely if they notice you in time), you'll hit them instead.

    You can't grab them anymore when they jump through the hatch. But you can close the hatch instead.

    You can also grab them when they slow or medium vault windows or pallets while injured.
