Replacing hot shoe?

Hey guys, quick question. I dropped my t3i a short distance onto carpet a few days ago, and at first didn't notice it having done anything, I later realized it had bent the left side of the hot shoe some, but not much. I tried using a screwdriver to open it up some, and got it at least wide enough to slide my shotgun in, but I'd kind of like to fix it. I looked online, the parts look cheap and the process looks easy, but I didn't know if I'd be voiding a warranty or something by swapping it myself. Is this something worth taking it somewhere for or should I just do it?

Not sure if I'll get any responses from the video forum, but I'm not a member of any photography forums :\

Thanks,
Evan

You shouldn't have any warranty issues if you use genuine Canon parts.

Contact Canon support. You might get it fixed free even after warranty. They fixed my out of warranty GL2 for free before.
