Ah, I do use a large tripod plate and I've just fitted it to see what happens. It does apply pressure to the screen and stops it from flipping out. Also, if I flip the screen out before fitting the plate, then the screen won't flip back in by quite a significant margin.

Can anyone recommend a good Q/R plate of the correct size?
