I think something like this might work. I had to think about it and re-read it a few times before I understood.

I’ll be happy to clarify anything that’s confusing.

or you could do something where the center section is hinged and flips down, just kept up in place with a barrel bolt for quick access.

This is also a good idea. Using this concept, I would hinge a single board to the existing top rail and “latch” it to the two corner posts (legs) with surface bolts or barrel bolts. With the bolts opened, the top board would then fold down and would also slide down with the side gate if it is released. A light weight spruce (white wood) board from the home center would work fine.

This idea would also serve the purpose of making the whole side more secure when the bolts are in place. The original gate latches at the bottom are rather flimsy at best.

Best wishes.
