Android Central Question

I got an OtterBox for my Google Pixel XL 2 when I purchased it a couple years ago. Since then, I have been going through charging cables like crazy. The little flap that covers the charging hole presses on the cable. Over time, it starts to bend the metal part inside my phone. I tried getting those cord protectors, but those just push more. I tried putting a popsicle stick in between the cable and the flap, but again it just presses more. I have thought of cutting the flap, but I'd like to protect my phone as best I can. Is anyone else having this problem? Super frustrating when I wake up to a dead phone.
