The way I do it is to take it out of the front two tabs, put it under the rear tab then back under the front two tabs. Good luck.

Carefully slide that bottom black plate forward and you'll be able to tuck it back under that hook.

Never mind i figured it out. U have to pull the gimbal right back so that the front mental tabs can be pulled right out of the housing this allows you to tuck the rear metal plate edge under the hook and then you can get the front metal tabs under the housong again.

I.ll leave this here in case it helps someone in the future

To anyone who tries this, be VERY careful when trying to reseat the gimbal plate under the hook. If you put too much downward pressure on the plate, it could easily break the hook and then you will have to completely disassemble the Mavic and drop the gimbal to replace that tiny little part.
