lifting a bed mechanically?

I am renting an apartment that has this lovely wall bed, but the problem is that it is simply a box that pivots out of the wall, and while I can put it down, it takes two people to lift it back into the wall. Anyone have any advice on a cheap DIY way to easily lift the bed back up? I've been looking at pulley systems and hoists, but as far as I can tell, they're designed for lifting vertically, not so much tilting?

Any help, information, advice, is appreciated!! Thanks!
