I understand, it is wedged into the bottom of the post. Examine the foot lands. You'll see what I am talking about.

Maybe I'm missing something, but why are you taking it off in the first place? My jack is a Barker and the foot retracts above the bottom of the A-frame, so hitting it on something is not a concern. Is yours different?

I'll answer, if you don't mind. There are two different styles of Barker feet/posts. OP and I have the earlier style. No pin and if you were to fashion an attachment, (there is none) it would definitely be a ground clearance problem. Also, I have a Hensley hitch and an attached foot would interfere with the swing of the spring bars with a tight backing maneuver. This foot is also, I believe taller than the attached style.
Edit: I'm not sure if it is an earlier vs later style, but there are definitely two styles.
