    OK, My battery door was continuing to slide off.. Especially since I got the holster. It seems that when putting the Droid BACK in the holster my fingers 'slide' down the back of the unit and pop the door out... I have had to pick up the door off the floor several times.

    For those of you with this issue, I have found a way to fix it, once and for all time!

    (Note: There is a video on the forum showing a fix, but it didn't secure it enough for my unit).

    So, here is what I did. If you do this, just don't 'squeeze' too hard. And squeeze EACH of the four tabs.

    It works FOR GOOD... when I put my door back in place now, there is a nice, loud SNAP as it pops in.. Cool.

    Yes, I noticed the grammar error.. the distance NEEDS to be shortened.. oops..

    yeahm this works pretty well. though i think i did it a bit too hard, and now its a bloody sob to get it on/off. it seems that you dont really have to see it move to make a difference.

    thanks! this had been driving me buggy

    Wow, this worked great for me! The first video out showing you to use a flat head screwdriver did nothing. But this actually makes it click into place. Thanks!

    I didn't even do that, just held mine like I was going to flick a deck of cards and just pressed outward on the center slightly, not even enough to see that its bent but enought that the top corners don't move when I press on them and it feels a little more solid.

    Just contact Motorola support and they will send you a new one. I ordered a new one and it's a night and day difference, the new one locks in place the way it should have initially.

    Sweet. My door isn't falling off or anything, but is a tad bit loose. I'll probably do this when I get home tonight.
