Transom (folding) boarding ladder

I have just about completed a folding 6 step transom boarding ladder similar to Ohm Shanti's

But now I want to make it so a person in the water can lower the ladder by pulling on a rope which removes a cotter pin so the ladder can fall down into the water. Is there a better way of going about it?

Get rid of the pin. Figure out a different hold and release means

I thought you'd say that: I'm not happy with it either.

Maybe I should think along these lines?
