5" square sidewalk drain grate / cleanout cover

I'm having a tough time finding this thing, even though I see them all over the place on the sidewalks where I live (San Francisco). None of the plumbing supply places seem to be able to look it up in their catalogs, and web searching has proved surprisingly fruitless.
It's basically a flat, small square (about 5") steel grate w/ 2 hinge tabs on one edge and a little half-circle tab on the other w/ a screw hole to hold it in place on a square steel flange that receives it. The flange is permanently affixed to the concrete in a driveway / sidewalk. I'm just looking for the grate itself.
It has holes for ventilation. Looks like it could be used both for drainage as well as cleanout access.
Any ideas?

There should be a name on it, or on the part imbedded in the driveway.

Been down that route and may prove helpful yet. There sometimes is. Ones I've found so far are either custom names of homebuilders long since out of business or contractors / suppliers equally defunct.

If it's steel, maybe you can get it welded. If you want an exact replacement for historical reasons, try an architectural salvage yard. I saw a TV show a few years back about a large architectural salvage place in Oakland. I don't remember the name, but a Google search came up with C & K Salvage on Douglas Ave., and Berkeley Architectural Salvage on 65th St.

Considering names, I see a lot of drain covers labeled "city of " (city of BLANK).

I would think a local, commercial plumbing supply house would know exactly what you have. You may or may not be able to buy just the lid, sometimes it's cheaper to buy the entire assembly. Again, they should be able to tell you. There are a limited number of manufacturers who make these things. One of the big ones is Josam, here is a picture of a square hinged grate - you might browse here: http://www.josam.com/catalog/JOS/T /
