\nmx PATENT FFIGE.
BYRON SNYDER, OF CLINTON, WISCONSIN.
IMPROVEMENT IN GATES.
Specification forming partof Letters PatentNo. 119,421, dated September 26, 1871.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, BYRON SNYDER, of Olinton, in the county of Rock and State of Wisconsin, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Farm-Gates; andI do declare that the following is a true and accurate description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawing and to the letters of reference marked there on, and being a part of this specification, in which my invention is shown in perspective.
The nature of this invention relates to an improvement in the construction of that class of farm-gates which is capable of being opened and closed by the occupant of a vehicle without dismounting for that purpose; and it consists in the peculiar construction and arrangement of the several parts, as more fully hereinafter set forth.
In the drawing, A A represent the gate-posts,
. tothe former of which a heel-post, B, is hinged by pintles a. G is a framed gate, the rear or inner upright b of which is held against the outer face of the heel-post by straps c passing around the latter, but in such a way that the gate'may three posts being provided with two staples, or
preferably with pulleys, as shown. F is a forked brace, so secured by hooks or pins to the heelpost B that itmay have a slight radial movement while projecting diagonally rearward therefrom.
A latch-bar, G, connects the outer extremity of the brace with the latch-bolt d. H is a post erected at the side of the road, against which the gate swings when opened. It is provided with a gravity-latch, e, which engages with' the projeeting end of the latch-bolt d and retains the gate when opened. A similar latch, e, is pivoted to the gate-post A and looks it when closed.
The rear end of the latch-bar being elevated, the
latch-bolt (1 into the socket or mortise in the end upright of the gate, when the continued pulling swings the gate open, releasing the cord as it approaches the post H, whose latch 6 will engage with the latch-bolt. I is a cord, one end of which is secured to the extremity of the brace, while the other is led through a pulley on the near side of the post; thence across to a second pulley on the post E, its pendent end being weighted as the other. To close the gate, passing through it iI'rom the other direction, pull down on the cord which, swinging the brace a'little, pushes the latch-bolt outward a little, until a notch in its upper surface comes under the latch 6, when the continuedpulling' causes it to shut against thepostA, whose latch looks it, as above mentioned. J J are similar cords, in like manner arranged on the posts D and E, except that the cord J is attached to the latch-bar about midway of its length, so that when pulled to open the gate it will draw back the latch-bolt.
The advantages of this gate are, first, the ease with which it is operated second, the adjustability of the gate onthe heel-post, whereby it may be raised above the snow in winter, or to let hogs and sheep pass under it; and, third, its cheapness in cost and durability in service.
- What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The construction and arrangement of the posts A A, D, E E, and H, the heel-post B, hinged to the post A, and carrying the adjustable gate 0, the brace F, latch-bar G, latch-bolt d, latches e e, and weighted cords I, I, J, and J, all arranged and operating with relation to each other as herein described, for the purpose specified.
BYRON SNYDER.
