Post removable tongue jack handle

I can't get the tailgate on my truck all the way down when I'm hitched up because it won't clear the handle on the tongue jack. Is there such a thing as a removable handle? I know that I could extend the hitch or go to an electric jack, but I would prefer a removable handle.

They do make tongue jacks with a flip over handle that might work for ya.

If the handle is secured with a pin or rivet you could drill it out and use a removable pin with a locking feature like is used on boats.
