Is there a way to fix the glass lens cover on back?

I don't know how it happened, but the MinoHD glass cover on the back has cracked right in the middle of the camera's view. I thought, I could just take out the glass, however, this would leave the internals of the camera exposed. I cannot find a replacement glass and I'm not sure why Flip made the lens so fragile for something that can fit in your pocket. Anyone help?

fist of all - i did not find a replacement glass online - but i would first try to contact the customer support: http://www.theflip.com/en-us/support/

it's better to use glass instead of any plastic cover (plastic would also break and the scratches on plastic are really bad)

Amazon has them for $15 and so does eBay. It is the repair kit. Go with this one. The glass is specifically made for the Flip cameras. The $15 bucks is worth it, it comes with finger cots for install and installation step-by-step guide. Easy to install when following the pictures in the guide.

The best deal on the net is eBay if you need a replacement lens. $15.99 + free shipping and comes with lens protector also.
