' GATE-OPERATING DEVICE. V
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Aug. 10, 1915.
Application filed January 11, 1912. Serial No. 670,685.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, OLIVER ll PETERSON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Victoria, in the county of Knox and State of Illinois, have invented new and useful Improvements in Gate-Operating Devices, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates broadly to the class of gates and more specifically to a means for opening gates.
This invention not only aims to provide means for opening gates but-also discloses simple means whereby a gate may be held open, said last named means, however, may be operated by the operator of a vehicle without necessitating his leaving the same.
I desire to lay the'greatest of stress upon the simplicity of my invention, both in construction and in operation and it is thought that the advantages and novel features of the same will be appreciated from the here-- inafter appearing disclosure.
\Vith the above and many other important objects in view this invention relates to such details of construction and in the arrangement and combination of parts as will be hereinafter fully described and specifically pointed out in the appended claim.
In describing my invention in detail reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of my invention. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same.
In the accompanying drawings which fully illustrate the preferred form ofmy invention the numerals 1 and 2 designate ordinary gate posts which posts are sunk into the ground in the manner well known. Pivotally connected to the post 2 as shown at 3 is a gate I of ordinary construction it having the rod 5 slidably mounted thereon as shown at 6, which rod is adapted to be provided with the coiled spring 7 for the purpose of normally holding the said rod in engagement with the post 1. The rear end of the rod 5 is secured to one endof the second rod 8 as shown at 9, the other end of said second rod is connected to the upper end of the lower end of the member 10 I provide the post 2 with an eye bolt 12 which eye bolt is adapted to be engaged by an eye bolt 13 which is carried by the said member.
, Positioned uponthe member 10 and intermediate its ends is a screw eye 14, which screw eye is adapted to be connected to the lower end of a member 15. The upper end of the member 15 is adapted to be pivotally connected to the post 2 as shown at 16.
I provide the auxiliary posts 17 to which posts are pivotally connected the levers 18 as. shown at 19, the said levers having their ends, pivoted together as at 20. For the purpose of forming a connection between the member 15' and the ends of the levers 18 I provide a third member 21. It will now be readily seen that when the levers 18. are rocked in a certain manner the gate a will be swung upon itssupports.
vFor the purpose of holding the gate in an open position I pivot upon one of the posts 17 a latch 22 as shown at 23, the said latch being connected to a coiled spring 241 in any suitable manner. An arm 25 connects the latch 2 and one of the levers 18 whereby when either of said levers are operated said latch will also be operated.
The levers 18 are provided at their outer ends with the handles 26 whereby they may be operated from the drivers seat of a vehicle.
The operation of this gate is as follows: lVhen the gate is closed and it is desired to open the same one of the levers 18 is grasped by its handle 26 and the outer end of the lever swung downwardly thus raising the inner end of the lever. This will move link 21 and link 10 thus drawing link or rod 8 to move the latch 5 to a released position and will then swing the gate toward the open position. The momentum of the gate will carry links 21 and 16 past a dead center after which the outer end of the lever 18 must be moved upwardly to move the inner end of the lever downwardly and press upon link 21. 'As pressure is applied to link 21 it will in its turn press upon link 15 and swing the gate into engagement with the post 17 which carries latch 22. The latch 22 will engage the gate and hold the gate in the open position. After the vehicle has passed through the gate the second lever 18 is pressed downwardly to raise latch 22 through the medium of the rod or link 25 and release the gate. At the same time link 21 will be drawn upwardly thus swinging the gate toward a closed position. The momentum of the gate will carry links 21 and 16 past a dead center and the gate can then be completely moved to a closed position by permitting the outer end of operating'lever to move upwardly. It is of course obvious that if the gate is moving rapidly the momentum of the gate will cause the gate to swing to a closed or opened position if howeverthe gate is moving slowly the final upward movement given the lever 'will cause the gate to move to a closed or opened position after the link has passed a dead center.- As the gate strikes the post 1, latch 5 will catchand hold the gate in a closed position.
It is obvious that this gate may be opened and closed by either one of the levers 18 since the inner ends of the levers are connected as shown at 20 thus causing the levers to move together.
I desire it to be understood that I may make slight changes in the construction of my invention without departing from the spirit thereof, provided, however, such changes fall within scope of the subjoined c aim.
Having thus fully described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
A structure of the character described comprising a gate post, an auxiliary post, a gate hingedly connected with said gate post, a latch carried by said gate, a lever carried by said auxiliary post, a link pivotally connected with the lower end portion of said gate post and extending upwardly toward the free end portion of said gate, a rod pivotally connected with the upper end portion of said link and pivotally connected with sa d latch, a second link having its upper end portion pivotally connected with the upper end portion of said gate post and havin its lower end portion pivotally connected with said first mentioned link adjacent its upper end portion, and a third link pivotally connected with one end portion of said lever and having its lower end portion pivotally connected with said second mentioned link adjacent its lower end portion.
