Never saw a coat hanger used for that. Have seen a bolt welded sticking up at the front of the lever that you catch with your heel when pressing the brake.

Now that I am getting older and less flexible, I have a L shaped seal puller, about a foot long, made out of 3/8 or so square stock with a single hook on the end that works great to lift up the latch. Just need to find an easily accessible place to mount it.

Wish I had ordered one of the toggle levers from OEM when they were still around.

Steiner Tractor Parts has a brake lock assist attachment for $70.

Even if you don't want to spend the money, you can get some ideas of what to do. There are lots of designs out there.
