    At least for the near term I've fixed mine:

    I put two zip ties, one around each end of the cover about 1 cm or so from the ends (obviously, the cover was not attached to the phone :Eyecrazy: ), tightening them carefully until the cover was bowed a bit. Then, I heated the cover, especially along the 'spine' for about two minutes with a hair dryer on high. Allowed the cover to air cool for about ten minutes, and so far the set has held. The gap along the sides is gone, and the latch fits tight. We'll see what the memory is of the material after sitting overnite. YMMV.

    Having said / done all the above, I use a silicone case on my Tour, so the loose battery cover isn't an issue for me. Just gotta tinker sometimes...
    Holy Bill Nye the science guy thanks tbcpn for the great tip :fing02:

    I'm thinking this may have been more of a McGyver move.





    Maybe not because there was no duct tape or mullets involved.
