Yes, I have an idea to use a pull rope that goes through through a smooth hole
in the attic door assembly and attached to a spring loaded latch. To close the
attack door simply, push it closed using a broom handle with a protective sponge
ball to protect the door assembly finish. This will compress your insulation.
To open simply pull the rope, as you normally would to open the door assembly
and the rope will pull back the spring loaded latch. Now you won't need to get
a stool to undue the bolt latches every time you want access to the attic.
