Keeping It Shut!

Back on topic, I do have a small problem that I am looking to solve - a bit of an understatement actually, as I have spent most of the afternoon on tinternet looking for the right item.
If you have managed to follow the thread so far, you will see that I have made a backplate for the suicide seat backrest cushion, to go on the front of the console. There are recesses for the hinges moulded into it, and I think that I have found a stay that will keep it hinged up when filling with fuel (the fuel filler cap is behind it), BUT I have yet to come up with a way to keep the d____d thing shut
My original thinking was a marine version on the principle of the little latches I use to keep the loft hatch shut, as in the arty shot below. I have seen similar in nylon but cannot find it now. Does anyone out there have any good ideas/know where to get such a thing. Any other ideas on how to keep an uphostered flap closed? All ideas gratefully received.

Probably a bit under-engineered to appeal to your needs, Ian, but a strip of Velcro should do the job ok.

My seat bases are fixed to the pods with neatly applied industrial velcro. DHD has witnessed the results and I think he'll agree it works well.

The Osprey pod tops are shaped ( as you know),therefore fixing hinges isn't easy.

Yep and my front bench seat cushion is fixed in the same way: 4 no. 12" long strips of self adhesive Velcro.

Respect, but I had a good lol at this for two reasons; in some of the installations that we have supplied to the military some reasonably critical elements have been attached with Velcro - so yes I am aware of its 1001 uses
Also, as you can see below, my interim solution is a cushion with two strips of Velcro on it
My concern is that these may not last, it being regularly pulled off when I fill up with fuel. Thanks to your previous post I think that the solution is now sorted - but first I am concentrating on just getting on the water.
