I removed the J-Nut from the frame, where the bolt (so to say) screws into and replaced it with a similar j-nut from Ace Hardware, and a thumbscrew so I could thread it in. A little more work to tighten down but much more readily available when it gets lost,

I also added a clip on the back side of the 'bolt' so it would stay attached to the cover when the cover is removed.
