Default Schwere Wurfgerät 41 (sW.G. 41) Firing Frame

I am restoring a sWG 41 frame that is missing one metal latch piece from the top of the crate. It appears to have been a piece that flipped over the firing end of the crate. Does anyone have an image of this piece to help me with the restore?

I thought the official name for these frames was Würfrahmen.

These are like mine and show the piece I am missing, it must have stabilized the round by holding it in place over the fuze well and shipping plug.
