Making a swing away tire carrier and cargo rack

Could some of you post up pics of how you latched and how you hinged the carrier so it will hold some weight, I am going to build a new one and was hoping for some examples of what you guys have done. Thanks

I have a pin through this for added stress resistance.

Simple-ish latching design.

Although this isn't the best example, since mines broke :P, just have to over lapping L-brackets. One bolted on rear gate and one of the frame spare carrier, then run a pin or bolt through a hole in both of those. ( I need to step the gauge of metal up)
