If the cable keeps popping out then you're not pushing it in far enough in the first place. You have to ensure the cable is sitting flat at the bottom of the connector before pushing the clip down. It can be quite fiddly to do, just be patient and keep trying.
Here's a link to someone fixing a similar connector on a laptop.

They mention you can thicken the ribbon with some insulating tape to make it grip in the slot.
