WALTEIR H. WIERNASZ, OF RACINE, WISCONSIN.
KNOCKDOWN OR PORTABLE FENCE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented June 27, 1916.
Application filed January 3, 1916. Serial No. 69,873.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, W ALTER H. -Wrnnwnsz, a citizen of the United States, residing at Racine, in the county of Racine and State of Visconsin, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Knockdown or Portable Fences, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an improvement in portable fences, and the object is to provide means whereby a small plot or piece of land may be fenced ed for confining stock. and permitting them to graze within a restricted area.
The invention consists of certain novel features of construction and combinations of parts which will be hereinafter described and pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings :Figure 1 is a view in elevation of the fence; Fig. 2 is a transverse vertical sectional view showing the position of the posts and braces when the fence is placed in position; and Fig. 3 is a detail view of the lower portion of one of the posts.
A, represents the hollow posts, which may be made of galvanized iron, and are about five feet in length. Connected to the posts are upper and lower railsQ and 3, by bolts A and nuts 5. Each post A is provided with a pin 6, which is received in the lower end thereof. An elongated slot 7 is formed in the lower portion of each post, and extendlaterally from the slot and formed in the post are a plurality of notches 8. A stud 9 is connected to each pin, and is adapted to enter one of the notches 8 for fastening the post and pin together. The lower ter minal of each pin is sharpened or pointed so that it may be driven or forced into the ground, say five or six inches, and after the pin has been placed in position, a post is placed over the pin and turned to cause the stud 9 to enter the desired notch 8. The elevation of the post is regulated by the insertion of the stud into one of the notches, and thereby maintain the fence at the proper elevation regardless of the contour of the land. The posts when erected are preferably at an angle or obliquely, and adjustably connected to theposts are brace bars or rods 11 which assume practically the same angle as the posts, so that the posts and braces are in the form of the letter A. The post A is provided with a diagonal slot or opening 12 through which the upper end of the bracebar or rod 11 passes, and formed on the lower surface of the brace-bar 11 are a plurality of teeth 13, which are adapted to engage the post for fastening the post and brace together.
The brace-bar- 11 is forced into the ground by a bar such as a crow-bar 1 1, shown in Fig. 2, by inserting the bar 1% between lugs 15, 15 on the side of the brace-bar 11, and inserting the other or lower end of the bar 141 into the ground. lVhen the bar 1 1 is placed in this position the upper end of the bar can be grasped and by pulling upon it the brace-bar or rod 11 is forced into the ground, the teeth of the brace-bar passing through the opening as the brace-bar is forced into the ground, but when the bar 11 has been forced into the ground a sufficient distance the teeth will automatically engage the post A and lock the brace-bar and post together.
A wire fencing 16 is connected to the rails, and may be of any suitable shape or form, but I have shown the fencing consisting of horizontal and vertical strands which are connected together.
Connected to the upper terminals of the posts A, are upwardly and inwardly inclined arms 17 ,by bolts 5 which pass through the arms and railQ.
l Yrapped around the upper terminals of I the arms 17 is a strand of barbed-wire 18. This additional fencing or barbed-wire strand affords a means to prevent the animal from putting its head over the top of the fence and eating the grain or hay on the opposite side of the fence.
From the foregoing it will be seen that I have provided a very simple construction which can be assembled and taken down with very little trouble, and which can be made of any size. The posts, rails, fencing and arms are all capable of being removed, so that a portable construction is provided. Furthermore, it is to be noted that the posts extend outwardly from the inclosure, while the brace-bars extend inwardly toward the inclosure, and the arms carrying the barbedwire strand extend from the rails inwardly toward the inclosure, so that the animal is prevented from putting its head over the fence.
I claim v 1. A knock-down or portable fence, com prising inclined posts extending outwardly from the inclosure, pins adjustably connected to the posts and adapted to be forced into the ground for supporting the posts in their inclined position, brace-bars adapted to be forced into the ground and extending in the opposite direction to the inclination of the posts, said posts having slots therethrough through which the brace-bars extend, and teeth on the brace-bars engaging the posts for connecting the posts and brace-bars together.
2. A knock-down or portable fence, comprising inclined posts having elongated slots and notches extending laterally from the slots, said slots and notches being located at the lower terminals of the posts, pins adapted to be driven into the ground received in the posts, studs on the pins received in the slots and adapted to enter one of the notches of the posts for connecting the pins and posts together, said posts having slots or openings formed therethrough, brace-bars extending through the slots of the posts, and adapted to be forced into the ground, teeth on the brace-bars adapted to engage the posts for fastening the posts and bracebars together, said brace-bars being inclined in an opposite direction to the inclination of the posts.
