I bought fuel cover and it does not secure well, I decided to improve the fixation, inserting a spherical magnet inside the gas cap and it worked very well.

OK, I understand. I was also thinking about something like this for my magnetic fuel cap covers. they blow off at around 40 kts. they are OK for most conditions but not severe conditions and prop blast. without the covers I get water in my tanks. there is always the tape method to cover the caps and I did that for awhile but it always leaves a mess but it is better than water in the tanks. thanks for the post.
