I do not know what your stove cover looks like, it may be similar to ours so here is what we did. The vintage folding stove cover we have is, well a pain.... Cindy hated it as she could not get it to go up or down very easy, a finger pincher and the way the hook and lock latch it had made it difficult to get back down. It was very flimsy once up and once down it would sink in middle when very much weight is on it. It was more of a dust cover then a stove top cover we could put things on. We elected to take the entire cover off and covert to a stove top cutting board. We now use it all the time, not as a cutting board but a stove cover to get more counter space.
This is the old cover down. Yes it may look nice but..
The cover up. This pic was from a fix it project so disregard the tools mess
To take it off, you take the burner cover off and then take 2 screws out of the hinge brackets and it is gone.
Here is the new cutting board
We bought vinyl stick on feet and positioned them to lock into the stove top grates so it would not slide off. Once we made sure they where in the right location I had to drill a small hole in the center of them and put a stainless screw in to hold the feet long term. The stick on will not hold long on that slippery plastic
We also can put this over the sink. And the feet have to lock into the sink too so the board does not go flying. Then when we are using the stove top, we have sink top counter space. We take the cutting board off and store it in the side of our jack knife sofa to travel. Never trusted it on the stove bouncing down the road. We use this every camp out. Bought the cutting broad at Lowes I think. Had to hunt to find the right size.
This might be an option for you.
Hope this helps
