Nothing but quickdraws. Intersting. That certainly gives you no mechanism for equalization, save for moving the primary placements until it's equalized. He's weighting nothing but one piece at a time, and that second draw in the chain coming from the top nut would have a good chance to open right up if the (loaded) piece below it failed - the whole force of it would come down on the gate in an orientation to open it (not to mention shock loading that piece even if the gate doesn't open).

Did you talk to the guy?
