    Can you take a picture of what you did?

    Yeah, some photos would be nice. Mine is still holding up great since I installed the clip. 100x better.

    Here's some taken with my PP (so not in the case). The first shows the package I cut the plastic from. The others the case with the plastic and Spigen clip attached.

    Here's how it looks with the PP in the case. Sorry, the pictures aren't that great. You can see that the plastic is not really noticeable and the clip still works well.

    Got both the tan and black leather flip cases. Installed the spigen clip and I love it! Without the clip the case doesn't sit flush as others has stated

    With the clip in use:

    With the clip not engaged. You can see how much of a gap it leaves:

    There are two clip models that Spigen sells, one is for the Samsung and the other for HTC, different pricing too. Which model works better?

    Why can't BBRY just make a great case for us? They know what we want and the situation with case makers. I like the modifications you implied. But why BBRY?

    I followed the OP several weeks ago, bought and installed the Spigen clip, and love my OEM flip case as a result. Since the cover closes so nicely now it puts the phone into sleep mode without me having to worry about it waking up. Saves my battery even more. With the magnet keeping the cover completely closed I also often leave my Passport standing upright while I am working on my desktop computer (I am one of the few apparently who is not a huge fan of Blend). It is easier for me to notice the blinking LED this way, and yet the device is still in sleep mode. I really wish BlackBerry had included a built in magnetic clip as many seem to be frustrated by the OEM flip case not closing all the way, at least not until breaking it in. I even like the solid click I feel when the Spigen clip engages and the cover snaps shut. This little clip has made all the difference to me.

    The fact that this case needs modification in order to ensure proper closure implies that it's functionally inadequate. I'm not a fan of book cases anyways, but if I was I'd still look elsewhere besides this one. I think BlackBerry dropped the ball when it comes to cases for the Passport. Still rocking mines naked till a good holster/case combo with a swivel clip is available.

    Using my case now for the third day. I can get it to close pretty easily. If you leave the case open for a while it becomes more rigid again and folding it closed looks more difficult, but hey that just shows how sturdy the case actually is.
    All I have to do is get it to close fully is run my finger along the fold to make sure it stays put. Otherwise, if I keep it closed in a pocket for a bit it has the same effect.

    Just make sure you work the leather a bit without the Passport in it, so the part that folds becomes a bit more flexible.
