I thought of using a glue earlier, but then it would be a pain to take it off as well.
It is the part that snaps in place, marked in the green rectangle.

Anyway, thanks for confirming that it isn't a straight up hazard. I'll take the suggestions to get it fixed

I fix breaks like that by gluing the pieces together with super glue, and then re-enforcing the back side with a piece of fiberglass cloth and epoxy. I use epoxy because fiber glass resin doesn't stick well on that type of plastic (ABS?). I overlap the crack with epoxy, put down the cloth, and then another layer of epoxy on top of the cloth. I have even used an old piece of cotton cloth, using the cloth to basically hold the epoxyj, but fiberglass cloth is much stronger. You only need scraps of cloth, and if you can find someone that works on fiberglass, you can usually mooch as much as you need.
