Drop in in the works

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by. As you can see from the pictures before...I had to crawl under the tracks to access the room...Did some research on the YOUTUBE and seen a few diffrent ideas and I chose the Hinge Idea...Seem like a good idea...and after setting this up I found that the track would not allow the lift out to lift up as it Binds on itself....SO Im gonna work on the Drop in style...more Later
