I'd rather have the cover somewhere loose, then when I use my hot tub put the cover back on. I don't purposely put it into water, it's just in case I drop it in the water

You missed my point.

I want to make the usb cover a non permanent fitting.

I just need to know will it still be water resistant the way it's held without the plastic hinge?

You should try wireless charging and forget about that usb cover
Since i charge my phone by induction, i maybe opened that cover once, just to copy a very large file to it.
