Help 2.5 year old biting & pinching me at bedtime

I'm at my wits end - dd2 has been horrible to settle for sleeping forever but now she's completely out of control.
Climbing, running around, throwing pillows & duvets around.
When I try to be consistent and put her back into bed and say "no, sleepy time, lie down please"/or sign/gesticulating because she has hearing loss & has no aids by then, she pinches & bites me.
Any ideas?? I keep thinking of just putting a gate on her door moving the bed where she can't climb onto windowsill & leaving her to it but I've always hated the idea of caging my children in.
It seems to only be for me. She was fine when nanna & grandad put her to bed last week.

Id gate the door and leave her to it. Or xlose the door and sit outside. Rapid return to bed each time she comes out.

We had this when still trying to get my lg to have a day time nap. Gave up the fight on the day time nap and evenings have improved a lot.
