A pig will walk into it and this will pull the pin from the loop and the door slams shut. Pigs can still push into the door but they can't get out. This opening is chained top and bottom to another t-post so it can't be pushed out or up. I use a circle 6 design. I also have a piece of PVC pipe at the end of the panel at the door opening so the door does not hang up on anything.
Any pics of the PVC? I always try to clean up the dirt and grass so the door wont hang up. I also raised the door panel one notch on the t post to give a bit of clearance.
