Unpowered gate opening part 2

how to make an unpowered gate?

Thank you Roland, M, and Zimmy for the awesome comments on yesterday's post about making a contraption to open gates.

Digging around for more information turned up a free Google book titled Fences, Gates, and Bridges and how to build them.

It's a jam packed book of fencing ideas that has a few human powered gate opening options that may help to inspire a new approach to this puzzle.
