COLUMBIA PLANOGRAPH 120.. WASHINGTON D c HENRY E. BRUMMEL, OF BOQNVILLE, MIS SOURI GATE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 12, 1911.
Application filed May 20, 1911. Serial No. 628,374.
To all whom-it may concern.
Be it known that I, HENRY E. BRUMMEL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Boonville, in the county of Cooper and State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gates, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to improvements in gates, and more particularly to farm gates, the invention having for its object the provision of simple and novel means for operating the gate latch and opening and closing the gate at a distance therefrom without requiring the operator to dismount from his horse or leave the vehicle in which he is riding.
A further object of the invention is to improve and simplify the construction of gate operating mechanism of the above character whereby the same is rendered more efficient, durable, and less expensive.
With the above and other objects in view, the invention consists of the novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described and claimed, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a side elevation showing the gate closed; Fig. 2 is a top plan view; Fig. 3 i
is a similar view, certain parts being broken away showing the gate in one of its open positions; Fig. 4 is a view of the gate in open position looking toward the side of the roadway on which the gate operating 1evers are mounted; and Fig. 5 is a detail perspective view of the eccentrically mounted gate operating element. 4
Referring in detail to the drawings 5 designates the horizontally swinging gate which may be constructed of metal, wood or any other preferred material and is provided at one end with the hinge eyes 6 which engage the pintles 7 fixed in the gate post 8. This post is arranged upon one side of the roadway and on the opposite side thereof the latch post 9 is located, said post having a brace 10 fixed thereto on which the gravity keeper 11 is pivotally mounted. This keeper is adapted to be engaged by the end of an overbalanced latch lever 12 which is pivotally mounted intermediate of its ends upon the gate as indicated at 13. The ends of this latch lever move in suitable guides 14 fixed to the ends of the gate 5. The end of the latch lever 12 adjacentthe hinged end of.
the post is also adaptedto engage a keeper 16 which is mounted upon a post 15 bolted or otherwise secured to the gate post. This keeper 16 is adapted to engage the latch lever-12 when the gate is moved to its open position and holds thegate in such position untilthe operator has passed through the same.
Thegate post 8 is of considerably greater height than the gate 5 and has rigidly fixed upon its upper end, a bar 17 which extends longitudinally of the roadway. This bar is mounted upon the gate post intermediate of its ends and upon the extremities thereof the vertically extending arms 18 are secured, said arms projecting upon opposite sides of said bar above and below the same. I The bar 17 is bracedby means of the diagonal bars 19 which are secured thereto and to the gate post 8.
Upon the post 8 the gate operating member 20 ismounted. This member consists of a metal plate bent into substantially circular form as shown in Figs. 2, and 3, the ends of said plate being brought together and inwardly extended to the center of the ring or observed that the member 20 is eccentrically mounted upon the gate post. A second plate 24 is arranged in spaced relation to the circular plate 20 and is eccentrically disposed, said plate 24 being substantially crescentshape in form and having its ends rigidly secured to the plate 20 at dia metrically opposite points. The plate 24 is provided with the grooves or channels 25 which are arranged in parallel longitudinal relation and receive the ends of the oppositely extending operating wires 26, the extremities of said wires being fixed to the plate 24 adjacent its opposite ends. An arm 27 is rigidly secured to the memb'er'20. and projects radially therefrom in parallel relation to the gate 5, the extremity of said arm being loosely engaged upon the upper end of a vertical rod 28 which is fixed to the gate adjacent to its hingedly mounted end. An inclined retaining plate 27 is secured at its ends to the arm 27 and to the plate 24. This plate retains the wires 26 in the grooves of the plate 24. The wires 26 pass over guide rollers 29 mounted on the lower ends of the vertical arms 18, the ends of said. wires. being secured to the free ends of the longitudinally extending levers 30 'which are pivotally mounted as at 31 upon the opposite ends of the bar 17 A wire 32 also extends over the guide rollers 29 which are arranged in the upper ends of the arms 18, the ends of said wire being also secured to the outer ends of the pivoted levers 30.
To the free ends of the levers 30, the depending operating handles 33 are pivoted, and wires 34 are centrally secured at one of their ends to said handles and at their other ends are connected to the upper end of the latch bar actuating member 35. This member is pivotally mounted intermediate of its ends as at 36 upon the upper end of the gate post 8 and is normally disposed in a vertical position both in the closed and open positions of the gate, the lower end of said member having a counter-balancing weight 37 thereon. wire or other flexible connection 38 connects the end of the latch lever 12 at the hinged end of the gate with the lower end of the member 35.
The operation of my improved gate is as follows. Upon approaching the gate from either direction, and it is desired to open the same, the operator first swings the depending handle 33 outwardly or away from the gate as indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 4, thereby moving the member 35 upon its pivot into a substantially horizontal position and lowering the outer end of the latch lever 12 out of engagement with the keeper 11. The operator now pulls downwardly upon the handle 33, thereby moving the levers 30 upon their pivots and in opposite directions, the wires 26 and 32 which are connected to the plate 2 1 being also moved in opposite directions to rotate the member 20 upon the gate post whereby the same is moved to the position shown in Fig. 3, and the gate swung to its open position at one side of the roadway as shown in Fig. 4E. The engagement of the latch lever 12 with the keeper 16 holds the gate in its open position until the operator passes upon the other side of the gate when he pulls the other of the depending handles 33 to return the gate to its closed position, the latch lever 12 being lifted out of engagement with the keeper 16 and the gate moved in the same manner as previously described.
From the foregoing it is thought that the construction and manner of operation of my improved farm gate will be readily understood.
The device is very simple, eflicient and durable in construction and may be easily and quickly operated. It will also be obvious that owing to the fact that but few parts are employed in the construction, the gate may be manufactured at a comparatively low cost.
While I have shown and described the.
preferred construction and arrangement of the various parts, the device is susceptible of considerable modification without departing from the essential feature or sacrificing any of the advantages thereof.
Having thus described the invention what is claimed is 1. The combination of a horizontally swinging gate, an overbalanced latch lever thereon, a gate operating member rotatably and eccentrically mounted upon the gate post and connected to said gate, vertical arms fulcrumed intermediate of their ends and arranged at distances from the gate on opposite sides of the same, pivoted levers extending longitudinally of the roadway, depending handles pivotally connected to the free ends of said levers, guides on the lower ends of said arms, operating connections extending around said guides and connected to the free ends of said levers and to the eccentrically mounted operating member at diametrically opposite points, guides in the upper ends of said arms, a flexible connection between the ends of said pivoted levers extending over said latter guides, and means mounted on the gate post connected to said handles and to the latch bar whereby when either of the handles is pulled, the latch will. be retracted and the gate then swung upon its pivot.
2. The combination of a horizontally swinging gate, and a supporting post there for extending above the gate, an overbalanced latch lever pivotally mounted on the gate, a bar rigidly fixed intermediate of its ends upon the upper end of said upright, vertical arms rigidly fixed to the ends of said bar and extending above and below the same, guides mounted in the ends of said arms, a gate operating member eccentrically mounted upon said upright, an arm rigidly fixed to said member and extending radially therefrom, said arm being loosely connected to the gate, longitudinally disposed levers pivotally mounted at one of their ends upon the ends of said bar, operating connections extending around the guides in the lower ends of the vertical arms and connected to the operating member at diametrically opposite points and to the free ends of said pivoted levers, a flexible connection between the free ends of said levers extending over the guides in the up per ends of the vertical arms, depending handles connected to said levers, a latch actuating member pivotally mounted on said upright, a connection between the same and the latch lever, and flexible connections be tween said member and said handles whereby when either of the handles is pulled, the latch is first retracted to release the gate, and the gate then swung upon its pivot.
3. The combination of a horizontally Swinging gate, an overbalanced latch lever mounted thereon, a bar rigidly fixed to-the upper end of the gate post and extending longitudinally of the roadway, a gate operating member consisting of an annular plate having its ends inwardly extended and an eye formed thereon, said plate being pivotally mounted on the gate post in eccentric relation thereto, a second plate rigidly fixed at its ends to said first named plate and disposed in eccentric spaced relation to the same, said latter plate having parallel guide grooves therein, vertical arms secured to the ends of said bar and extending above and below the same, guides mounted in the ends of said arms, longitudinally extending levers pivotally mounted at one of their ends upon the ends of said bars, flexible operating connections passing over the guides in the lower ends of said arms and connected to said grooved plate on opposite sides of the gate post, the other ends of said operating connections being secured to the free ends of said levers, a second flexible connection between the pivoted levers extending over the guides in the upper ends of said arms, depending handles connected to the free ends of the levers, and means mounted on the gate post and connected to said handles and to the latch lever whereby pull upon either of the handles will first release the latch and then swing the gate upon its pivot.
4. The combination of a gate pivotally mounted upon a supporting post for swinging movement, said post extending above the gate, an overbalanced latch lever pivotally mounted on the gate, latch keepers to be engaged by said lever to hold the gate in its open or closed position, an operating member eccentrically and rotatably mounted upon the gate post and loosely connected to said gate to swing the same, said member including a guide element, a bar rigidly fixed intermediate of its ends to the upper end of the gate post and extending longitudinally of the roadway, longitudinally extending levers pivotally mounted upon opposite ends of said bar, flexible operating connections between the opposite ends of said levers and said operating member, guides therefor arranged on the ends of said bar, certain of said operating connections being connected to said guide element of the operating member at opposite points, a latch actuating member pivotally mounted on the gate post, depending handles connected to said pivoted levers, connections between one end of said member and said handles, and a connection between the other end of said member and one end of the latch lever whereby, upon pull on either of said handles, the latch lever is first released from the latches in either its open or closed position and the gate then swung upon its pivot.
