To prevent such clip breakage in the future I suggest using a precision screw driver (others call it watchman's screwdriver) to gently nudge the "clip" in/out of place. Use the ( - ) type.
Even the ones sold at a dollar shop will suffice.
and yes the hot glue method is what I will do as well in case of breakage.
