D800 Battery Door Issue? Questions.

I recall several people in the past discussing problems with the battery door hinge breaking and falling off. I've never had the issue as I have always used a MB-D12 which kept it covered.

In order to cut down on bulk in my camera bag for a trip I am taking to Europe soon, I bought a new L-clamp that fits the D800 without the MB-D12 and removed it, but now the battery door is exposed and I'd hate to have it break while I'm in Europe and cause problems.

Is this a real issue? Do I need to put tape over the door to keep it from breaking or is there a better solution Do I need to purchase spare battery doors?

Any help or explanations are appreciated.

Thanks
