Yep, that is the same reason I didn't replace mine when it came up missing. However, about the loose fit, I was able to tighten mine up with a bit of tape so that part of the problem can be dealt with. My real issue is that I would put it on while using one camera, then take it off while using it for my 4x5. Net result is that it is probably lying patiently in wait somewhere in my house.
