Automotive Self Closing Deck Lock Cover:
ABSTRACT

A cover mechanism for covering a lock, having a key opening, on a
lock support surface includes a cover plate which may be pivoted
between a closed position in which the key opening of the lock is
covered, and an opened position in which the key opening is
exposed.  A detent arrangement engages the cover plate at a first
point to hold it in its opened position until a key is inserted into the
key opening and rotated towards an unlatching position, whereupon
the detent arrangement engages the cover plate as a second point
and prevents movement of the cover plate into its closed position.  
The cover plate is released when the key is withdrawn from the lock
such that the cover plate is free to move into its closed position.
