Default Charging flap problem

Hey guys I'm having an issue with my charging flap. Every time I take my phone out of my pocket the charging flap hanging off. It's really becoming a major pain. I obviously wouldn't even dare putting it in water! Anyone have a solution or has anyone else had this issue?

Not very happy about this.

ip58 z2 is

5/8 dust
8/9 water

dust yeah its stupid that chunks of dead skin stop a flap from closing, but then again its a sensitive thing, those flaps are sensitive and are easily affected by things
