wmoses - I think the lock tabs mentioned are referring to the slots in the metal sticking up that I recommended bending slightly. In other words, when the cover is in the folded position, you have to raise it slightly in the slots in order to unfold and flatten out on top of the stove. If the unfolding is attempted without raising the rear of the cover, the tabs can be bent. Hope this isn't too confusing.
