As George suggested, block the corners (or the entire perimeter) to prevent the cover from falling through, and then it could be as simple as a couple of turn buttons, easily made and installed out of scrap. Perhaps lightly gasketing the points of contact would eliminate vibration as well as blocking air flow from(or into) the cabin.
