I know that others on ALL forums have expressed a problem with the V1 accessory cover coming off too easily and getting lost. Well...I lost mine the 2nd day I had my camera. Does anyone have a good FIX to keep it on???

I know that richard300 showed a solution with a small hole drilled into the cover and tied to the strap mount... so that's one way. Although richard300's solution will work I am afraid that the loop of thread might catch on something sometime and cause me to loose grip on the camera. I tried to put a small piece of 'pick&pluck' foam under the cover and it did make it more snug...but it didn't work. So for now I just leave it uncovered. I also know that there is a cold shoe for the V1 that 'locks' into the accessory port and it is $15... so that would work.... but before I buy one, I am wondering if anyone else has this problem solved???
