K-X Hotshoe Problem?

I got a flash, so for the first time I took off the hotshoe cover off my K-X. There seems to be about 5 connection circle things (4 small around 1 big in the middle), I just noticed that the top left one is missing!!! is that a problem? this couldn't possibly be part of the design right? what should I do?

It's a big problem. You should send your K-x to me. I'll fix it and send it back to you some time next year, no charge. Heck, I even pay for the shipping

Just kidding. No, it's not a problem. The "missing" one is the receptacle for the locking pin of the flash. When you have a chance to look at the foot of a current Pentax flash, you'll see the pin.
