make wall swing out and up

I'm building a fort for my son. I would like one wall to be free accept hinged to a beam above it. I would like the wall to be able to swing out and up on the hinges. To make it easier, I thought I'd anchor a cable to the front bottom, bring the cable up over the beam above the wall and down the other side with some 30 pound weights at the end.
Will this work well?

RE: make wall swing out and up

You should talk to your insurance agent about how well he thinks that it would work.

RE: make wall swing out and up

Hey Bill,
Can you draw a sketch and post it to this web-site somehow? There are a lot of assumptions to be made sight unseen - hence the insurance agent comment by dvd.
