When the gate is towards me, I thumb it.
When the gate is away from me, I fan it.
I don't know if you know what I mean by that, but I think it is strangely analogous.

BTW I thought the chestnut about wiregates and bolt-plates refers to the fact that the wire is so thin that the bolt plate can slip off a carrot. It doesn't matter for fixed hangers does it? What they are demonstrating in the video could happen with a solid gate couldn't it ? If I have missed something please educate me. I know a lot of people only use solid gates now even though they never clip a carrot.
