Cut a piece of paper to just smaller than the shape of the opening.
Place strip of gaffers tape over it and enjoy your D800e, F' da part!
+10 ... the supposedly "captive" locking knob for the tripod collar on my 70-200 VR fell off and Nikon wants me to send it in for service in order to replace a $5 part. So Nikon is turning a $5 repair into a >$100 repair (when shipping & insurance is included) with this policy!!!! Gee, thanks Nikon for screwing me over.
I noticed that the locking knob socket is 1/4"-20, so I ordered a similar type screw from B&H for $5 ... and two spares just in case ... looks a little funny, but for saving myself $100+ and not having my lens gone for a month, I'll live with it.
I can't say I'm very happy with Nikon over this customer hostile practice. Does anyone know if Canon is any better? If this keeps up along with the lack of a D400, I may switch.
