E-330 Broken Card Door: Any Suggestions??

I dusted off my E-330 for a day trip to the city of Maastricht.
I had a great time using the old gem with my ZD8mm, ZD25mm and ZD50mm.

But apparently I must have done something wrong, because now my card door is broken.

The E-330 card door is of the relatively flimsy plastic type, with no lock or anything. You just pry it open and push it back to close it. I notice that the two little plastic nibs that keep the door in its closed position, are both broken. I can't describe this any better - if you own a E-330, you will know what I mean with those two little nibs.

Maybe just a case of plastic fatigue after more than 5 years post production.

But it is annoying because now the card door always swings open.

Any clever suggestions on how to improvize an alternative way of closing.

I can't think of anything better than some duct tape, but that is a hassle because obviously the card door has to be opened from time to time.
