i'm living in Germany. Same problem with that yellow/orange clip here.
I've sent my Nikon 1J1 to an autorized Nikon Service repair shop. They have that part and it costs 4 Euro, but they can't sell it to me without a repair fee and they have to clean the camera professionally (54 Euros) . Which is joke, because the camera was clean. The overall cost estimate incl. shipping and tax was 69,50 Euros. What a joke.
I told them that they should send me back the camera without doing anything to it. Will look for a broken camera to get spare parts from.

Its crazy when you buy a £600 camera and it is ruined by a tiny plastic retaining clip.
They make everything so cheap nowadays. My Coolpix was fine, then one day that little piece of plastic broke too. I was putting a fabric band aid on it to secure it but it does not hold too well. Who wants to stick and un stick a compartment all the time. Everything today is made so it will break and you will buy it again. These manufacturers know what they are doing. It is all a money game. GREED!
Buy a battery grip on Amazon, problem solved about $25.00 US
It holds 2 batteries so make sure you have at least 2.

This little plastic part could be actually bought for around $10 from a seller on eBay. But looks like it is out of stock now.
The replacement part number is 1K684-884.
@robertez There is no battery grip for Nikon J1, you probably mistook it with some other model. There is only the extension grip Nikon GR-N2000 and its Chinese knock-offs available. They might help, though, as they should press strong enough against the battery door.
