GATE-LATCH.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. 36 161?.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FnANoIns M. PETTY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Maud, in the county of Pottawatomie, State of Oklahoma, have invented a new and useful Gate-Latch; and I do herebydeclare the following to be a full, clear, and exact de scription of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to a new and useful gate-latch, and the object of the invention is to provide a latch of this kind comprising improved, simple and efficient features of construction.
One of the features of construction is the provision of a slidable and pivoted latchbar, which, when in a thrown position, will cam over and into engagements with a keeper, in combination with means for slid ing the latch-bar out of engagement with the keeper, when it is desired to open the gate.
In practical fields the details of construction may necessitate alterations, falling within the scope of what is claimed.
The invention comprises further features and combination of parts'as hereinafter set forth, shown in the drawings and claimed.
In the drawings: Figure 1 is a view in perspective, showing the improved latch mechanism as applied to a gate. Fig. 2 is an enlarged detail view in elevation of a portion of the gate and one of the gate posts illustrating the latchmechanism. Fig. 3 is sectional view on line 33 of Fig. 2. Fig. 1 is a sectional view on line 4-4 of Fig. 2.
Iteferring more especially to the drawings, 1 and 2 designate the posts or standards for the gate, 3, which is hinged at 4 to the post 1. The latch-bar 5 has an elongated slot 6 near one end, and an elongated lL-shaped slot 7 adjacent the other end. Headed pins or bolts 8 and 9 extend through the slots 6 and 7 respectively, and into two of the bars of the gate, thereby constituting means for mounting the latch-bar 5 on the gate. 'VVhen the gate is closed, its free end portion cams over and into engagements with the keeper 11, that is, when the latchbar is in a thrown position. When the free end portion 10 of latch-bar cams over the keeper 11, the bar 5 tilts upwardly and pivotally on the pin 8, and in tilting upwardly,
the vertical portion 12 of the L-shaped slot 7, receives the shank of the pin 9, until the latch-bar engages behind the keeper, after which the bar assumes the position, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, with the pin 9 out of engagement with the vertical part 12 of the slot 7. The latch-bar 5 is under tension of the spring 13, which is connected to the pin 14: of the gate and has its other end connected to a pin 15 of the latch-bar 5. A lever 16 is pivoted to one of the bars of the gate 3 by means of the pin or bolt 17. The lower end of the lever 16 is provided with an elongated slot 18, which is engaged by the pin or lug 19 on one end of latch-bar 5. A leaf spring 20 is secured at 21 to the gate, and its lower end bears against the lever 16 below its pivot 17, thereby tensioning the lever,'in order to hold the latch-bar 5 normally in the position as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. A coil spring 22 has one end connected to the staple 23 of the gate, and its other end connected at 23 to the lever 16, below its pivot 17 thereby assisting the leaf spring 20 in its function. By carefully observing the drawings it can be readily seen how the latch-bar will cam into locking engagements with its keeper, and, when it is desired to unlatch the gate, the lever 16 may be moved in the direction of the arrow a, by grasping the handle 24, thereby reciprocating the latch-bar 5 out of engagement with its keeper 11.
I claim- In a gate-latch, the combination of a keeper and a latch-bar adapted to be carried by a swinging closure and designed to engage said keeper, of means for reciprocating the latch-bar out of engagement with the said keeper, said latch-bar having an elongated slot at one end, a headed pin carried by the closure and extending through said elongated slot, said latch-bar having an elongated lL-shaped slot near its other end, a headed pin carried by the closure and, extending through said L-shaped slot, whereby as the latch-bar cams over the keeper thereby tilting the latch-bar, the vertical portion of the L-shaped slot receives said In testimony whereof I have signed my last mentioned pin, and spring tensioning name to this specification in the presence of means for the latch-bar, said means comtwo subscribing witnesses.
