Assume that G16 is the only rule in consideration and the cage under discussion is the same as the one discussed in www.robotevents.com/VRC/2020-2021/QA/615
Is the use of a mechanism that makes the removal of a legal cage require a more accurate application of force, or require multiple applications of forces, legal? This would specifically mean that a safe application of force or combination of forces could remove the design without lifting the design or damaging the game pieces.
Example: a hypothetical robot wraps its intakers around a legal cage. The robot needs to be removed before the cage can be pulled away in some horizontal direction. (edited diagram originally sourced from Q&A 615 by Team 80X).
