sewer clean out cover for carpet?

Does anyone know if someone makes a brass or similar cover for carpet/
Today I had to get my main cleaned through the cleanout on main stack in basement due to water not draing properly.
They went out 75 ft as far as they wanted to go without getting stuck.
They did get it open but said I should also go through the one clean out I have in floor of basement.
That clean out is under carpet since 90 percent is finished.I did get the carpet opened above the 4 inch clean out by cutting a (X) on top and folding back and will have them come back and clean from there out to the street.My question is, is there such an animal that I can install over carpet that looks nice in case I need to gain access to it again such as the brass type covers that are used for electrical plug ins?
Thanks to anyone.

If your clean out is in place and you had not cut an X in your carpet, you could have cut a circle carefully where the clean out is, apply velcro to the top edges of the clean out plug and on mating parts of the carpeting so the carpeting piece would be removable, yet stay in place in normal traffic.
