Re: Tool to open lifeline gates
...This is not a standard gate ......
I understand the functionality, but it's not a gate at all, as I'd describe it. It's a removable lifeline. I'd still install an actual pelican hook, like you did, not a halyard shackle. Still not 100% sure the pic shows a shackle (too blurry and small on my screen), but apparently, it needs a tool either way, so I'd upgrade. Unless, of course, they don't really intend to use it. The OP does reference a slip though.
