I should have been clearer in my response. I meant to say that I drilled two holes on the lower part of the handgrip immediately above the door (one on each side as you're looking at the front of the camera). The diameter of the drilled holes are the same as paperclip. I then took a paperclip, cut it to size, and bent in around so that each end of the paperclip fit into one of the holes. Basically the paperclip will fit under the door with both ends stuck into the holes.

Not the most elegant solution, but it does work.
