Trouble reconnecting ribbon into ZIF socket

Specs: Ubuntu
I'm having trouble getting a small ribbon cable back into its ZIF socket. It looks like there might be a small piece of plastic or something creating an obstruction, but it's extremely tiny and I'm unable to get it out.

There is usually a little flip up tap. When popped up the ribbon comes out and when pushed back in place, holds the ribbon. It may have pulled out and the tab is still closed.

I can see that it's unlocked. I can place the ribbon part-way back in and relock the ZIF tab but the ribbon obviously isn't all the way in, because it just slips right back out.
