TUBMAN I1. SIPES, OF FREEPORT, PENNSYLVANIA.
' GATE.
Application filed July 16, 1918. Serial No. 245,192.
To all whom it may 00mm.-
Be it known that I, TUBMAN L. SIrEs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Freeport, in the county of Armstrong and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gates, of
.which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to gates, and the primary object of the invention is to produce a construction in which a person approaching along a roadway can swing the gate open in a direction away from him so that he can passthrough with his horse or vehicle.
Another object is to produce a simple construction in which the user, after having passed through the gate, can close it by manipulating a second operating lever, all levers being so positionedthat they can be reached by a person sitting in his buggy or wagon.
A third object is to counterbalance the weight of the gate and to provide it with latch mechanism automatically actuated by the swinging mechanism as will be set forth in the following specification and claims, and as shown in the drawings, wherein Figure 1 is a general perspective of the gate and its actuating and balancing mecha nism complete,
Fig. 2 is a sectional detail through the hinge post pivot.
In the drawings I have used the letter F to designate a line of fencing crossing the roadway R, and this line is interrupted by the insertion of a gate G, supported at one end on a hinge post H and connected at its other end with a latch post L. No novelty is claimed for the parts thus far mentioned.
Coming now to the details of the invention, first I prefer to provide the hinge post with an upstanding pin or stud 1 at its upper end. across which end passes the top beam 2 of the gate, the beam being provided with a conical opening 3 through which this pin projects as seen in Fig. 2. The rear of the beam carries a receptacle 4 of sufficient size to receive a weight, herein shown as a number of stones 5, which will connterbab' ance the weight of the gate, to which end the rear portion of the beam extends some distance beyond the hinge post H and swings above the fencing F when the gate is opened and closed. In the drawings I have used the numeral 7 to designate the latch, herein shown as an ordinary bar pivoted at 8 with Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Apr. 1, 1919.
in the gate and with its free end engaging a keeper on the face of the latch post L, which keeper is not illustrated in detail. Any appropriate form of latch can be employed, so long as it disengages the keeper when its tip is raised, and also provided it is of a construction wherein it will automatically engage said latch when the gate swings closed from either side.
Connected with the latch 7 is a wire 10 which leads upward over a pulley 11 and then alongside the gate and around a pulley 12, then forward alongside the road and around a pulley 13 in the upper end of a post 1 1, then back and across the top beam 2 of the gate and around the pulley 15 in a post 16 alongside the roadway R at the other side of the gate, a small weight 17 being hung on the end of the ropeor wire. For sake of clearness I have shown this rope by a black line. There is a second and much similar rope herein shown in dotted lines, and which is arranged as follows: Beginning at 20 wherein the rope is attached to the latch 7, it rises and passes over a pulley 21 opposite the pulley 11 on the top beam 2, thence leads rearward along said beam and over a pulley 22, then along the road in the opposite direction from the rope first-mentioned and around a pulley 23 at the top of 24 is a lever 28 which is connected at the po nt 29 with the rope last-mentioned.
When now a user approaches, as from the foregoing in Fig. 1, he grasps the lever 18 and draws upon the same. This puts tension on the dotted rope which, as shown, leads to the post 24 at the far side of the gate. The first effect of this tension is to lift the latch out of its keeper, and the next effort is to draw on the gate near its pivot point 1, so that the result is that the gate is swung open away from the user. \Vhen he passes through, he manipulates the other lever 28 to close it. In doing so he puts tension on the full-lined rope so that the gate is swung closed behind him. In similar manner, an operator approaching from the other side when the gate is closed. can swing it open from him by pulling on the lever 28; and after having passed through, he can swing the gate closed by pulling on the lever 18. If at any time the gate should sag so that the latch does not-engage the 'keeper, it is only necessary to add more stones 5 to the receptacle 4:, as Will be clear. If cords or ropes are employed, rather than wires or chains, they may need to be adjusted from time to time to take up the slack,
The foregoing description and the drawings have reference to what may be considered the preferred, or approved form of my invention. It is to beunderstood thatl may make such changes in constructionand arrangement and combinationof parts, materials, dimensions, et cetera, as may prove expedient and fall within the scope of the appended claims.
Having thus fully described my invention, what l claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. "In a gate hinged to swing across the roadway, the combination with two posts at each -side of the gate alongside said roadway, and pulleys on the posts; of two ropes Whereofeach is connected withthe top beam of the gate and led along the road around the pulley of-one post, thence back across said beam andover the pulley of the other post at the opposite side of the road to a weight, and a lever pivoted to each inner post and connected to the rope which leads to the oppositeside of the gate.
2. In a gate structure, the combination with a-gate'hinged to swing in either direction or to move across a roadway; of two posts alongsidethe roadway at'each side of the gate, a pulley'on each post, a rope connected With-the gate near its'hinge and "lead ing v in one direction over the pulley of the nearest post and thence back across 'thegate and over the pulley to the remote post at theiopposite side'ofthe gate, a small weight on the tend ofthe rope, a second rope leading in the opposite direction and over the two remaining pulleys to a second weight, and operating levers mounted on the posts near the gate and each connected with one of said ropes.
3.1m a gate structure, the combination with a hinge post at one side of a "roadway and a latch pestvat the other, a keeper on the latch post, a gate supported by the hinge post, and a vertically movable latchcarried by the gate and adapted to engage said keeper; of levers pivotally supported alongside the roadway at opposite sides of the gate, pests also alongside the roadway at opposite sides of the gate, and a cord leading from each lever across the gate, around a pulley on the opposite post, thence back to a pulley near the hinge of the gate, and then to the latch.
41. In a gate structure, the combination with a hinge postat one side of aroadway and a latch post atthe othena keeperen the latch post, a gate supported by the hinge post, and a vertically movable latch carried by the gate and adapted to engage said TUBMAN L. SI'PES.
