I have the same one. When the Spark is powered down the camera moves so freely i cant believe DJI didnt include a cover as part of the package. Never bought a camera or lens that hasnt included a lens cover. The Gimbal is even more sensitive to damage than just a single element.

It's only used when transporting the drone. You remove the gimbal cover when flying.

I have the one msinger uses.  It is only installed when I am stuffing it in the bag that came with the fly more combo.  I never use the gimbal cover when the Spark is in the foam storage box.  The cover has never broke and seems a perfect fit.  Maybe it is the way the OP is removing the cover by prying on it like a beast.

I use this one. If I place the AC in the foam box it stays slightly opened, so I carefully cut the foam about 2 mm with a surgical knife so now it closes smoothly. I don't know how tough the gimble is but it sure looks puny.

I keep the Spark inside its original case that store it with two batteries. The pre-molded cutout doesn't allow for any gimbal covers so I never purchased one mainly because the Spark stays inside the case whenever it's not being flown. If you store the Spark then there's little need for gimbal cover and keeping it inside the case is probably the best way to preserve the gimbal itself.

Speaking about the Spark Case, I purchased the Mavic Pro alone not the Fly More Combo, and I was a little disappointed no hard foam-like case with the Spark or Phantom was provided by DJI for the Mavic Pro.

I think DJI should actually release a storage case for the Mavic Pro, since technically the only DJI Mavic Pro carry case is the included bag that comes with the Fly More Combo.

Given DJI Care Refresh+ referencing drone warranty increasing in duration, if the Mavic Pro is built to last then shouldn't DJI provide owners with a non-3rd party alternative?
