EZ Climb-Thru Gate
A six-horizontal-bar fence with the 36-inch-wide, four-bar-high, vertically-hinged gate (shown swung open) that one steps through.

To enter a pasture or cattle lot without risk of any animals escaping, Newark, OH, farmer Jeffrey Debevoise designed the EZ Climb-Thru Gate, which he climbs through, not over. To build the gate, he cut a 36-inch-wide section out of four of the horizontal bars on an existing gate and welded two vertical braces to the remaining stubs of those bars. He then used the material from the cut-out section to fabricate a smaller gate, which he then hung in the opening he had made. This "gate within a gate" allows Debevoise to access his cattle lots without having to move a heavy gate or hold back the cattle.
