Engine Lid Latch

I was just looking at my engine lid latch and when the engine is hot it seems that cable for some reason opens the lid but by the time I get to the back the latch is locked again.  Once the engine is cold it works fine.  So it is either a two man job or something else. 

Now I saw somewhere that there is a new latch available with a spring release but I was wondering if anyone had any other work arounds.  Essentially the new style has a plate attached to one side of the upper hole you see and a spring attached pops up once the main latch is released and prevents the latch from re-engaging. 

I think Bruce @aircooled could make one easily .
