Not a photo but, for the time being, I took a door hinge, removed the pin and bolted one side to the nosewheel and the other side to a piece of conduit. Insert the pin to connect it, position the airplane, then pull the pin.  It works great for just a few dollars.  I plan to put a bend in the conduit to make a handle, and to rig a spring to pull the pin back with a lever.  I'm in no hurry because it is working great the way it is.

Man that sounds slick... I found an old cessna bar.   It works
