    I googled it. I kinda understand what it is, but I have never seen one. Is there OEM cover for PRIME?

    Cant you just get a passenger side handle and put it on the driver's side? They look reversible (just checked my car). It would shave the keyhole and you wouldnt be able to use it, but you'd get the look.

    In all honesty, how many times have you used the key hole?

    The metal cover that slides out of the way when the key is inserted into the door is available only as part of the lock cylinder set, Toyota part number 69005-47230, shown in parts catalog Figure 67-12, Lock Cylinder Set. When sold as a service part, it comes with two key blades cut to match, and the list price is $186.63. Installation and removal procedures are in the Repair Manual (more info).
    Just once is enough, since that’s how you enter the car to open the hood if the auxiliary (12-volt) battery has failed or is discharged.

    I was actually looking for the cover that you just push it into the hole and not fhe fancy ones. My brother has that cover but on his Scion Tc.

    That's what I though you are looking for, then I started wonder with others commenting, you actually needed the key cylinder.
    You want something like this, but for PRIME.

    The cover on my Infiniti made it look seamless. That's why I suggested a whole handle, but looks like a plug is simple enough.
