LR Unilet covers?

Theres an old Appleton LR Unilet that feeds into a subpanel in my garage. It doesnt have a cover on it though. The mounting holes for a cover are on the sides of the opening rather than the top (rounded) edge like the modern unilets I see online.

Where can I get a replacement cover for this?

I saw those, but thats the problem.

My appleton 3/4" LR unilet opening is squared off. It doesnt have the rounded edges where the mounting holes are like the ones in the links. The mounting holes on mine are on the sides of the opening.

Perhaps the style I have is no longer made?

Unfortunetly I dont have a camera.

Went out to the garage. ACtually it says

LB unilet not LR.

However, with google image search I still cant find one with the mounting holes in the configuration I am looking for.

You could make one from a 4 inch blank cover if you are handy.

It may not be UL listed but it is much safer than leaving it uncovered.

Without a picture we'll never identify it. I think I'd try to make one too.

I zip-tied a nailplate to the opening. The nailplate is the same width of the opening, just slightly longer.

That will suffice until I make one with with screw holes or find the real deal.
