Rookie mistake--battery cover gone with the wind

Er, we forgot to put a pin in the battery box lid for our '61 Tradewind. It took flight somewhere and our retracing the route to find it was unsuccessful. Wondering if anyone has an extra or if I could get dimensions and photos of one to replace it. I'd be grateful.

Not a spare, sorry. But a prototype maybe. I keep it inside the trailer. Still thinking of ways to make a better attachment.

A quick shout out of deep gratitude here for MarkR for the photos and especially RickDavis for a replacement box. Our repeated efforts to find the original battery box lid failed, so we truly appreciate the kindness of these forum members.
