"D7000 rubberize flap next to battery compartment...."

My D7000 'body only' arrived today from Amazon. I just noticed after taking a few pictures that there is a flap next to the battery compartment, very small, 1/8" x 1/2" long. It is on the side of the battery compartment. It pulls away from the side revealing inside the battery compartment. I can easily place it back and it is connected to the rest of the rubberized side. Looks like it was made that way although I am not comfortable with this flap coming up at all. Anyone notice that yet on their D700. It is on the side of the battery compartment nearest the lens mount. Thanks for any information.

That opening is for the EP-5B Power Supply Connector for the D7000.

Just push it back into place, its built that way for the cord from the adapter to pass through (page 282 in the manual).

P.S.

Oh yeah, I just noticed its your first post, Welcome to Nikonians.

I've noticed this as well.
The flap was loose and I found my baby finger seemed to rub on it as it was open.
I've pushed it back into place a couple of times and hope it stays there.

Thanks Pete, yes it was a surprise to see that but did look like it was suppose to be there. Haven't taken the time to read the huge user manual yet.

I have had the same problem and I seem to keep knocking it out of place and have to push it back in. I find my little finger knocking it loose. I have ordered the Battery Grip so that should take care of that.
