ARZA B. MINTON, OF PHILOMATH, OREGON.
GAT E.
SPECIFICATION forming part Of Letters Patent No. 230,034, dated July 13, 1880.
Application filed March 19, 1880. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that-I, ARZA B. MINTON, of Philomath, in the county of Benton and State of Oregon, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Gates, of which the following is a specification.
Figure 1 is a plan view of the improvement. Fig. 2 is a front elevation. Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the gate closed. Fig. 4 is a sid elevation of the gate opened.
This invention relates to that class of farmgates which are operated by means of cords suspended from posts, and has for its object to furnish an improved mechanism for opening and closing the gates.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
A is the gate, which may be made of any desired style, and is hinged to a post, B, set in the ground at the side of the roadway. I
The gate A, when closed, shuts against the post 0 at the other side of the roadway, and when opened rests against the post D at the same side of the roadway as the hinge-post B. The posts 0 D are provided with catches E F to receive the gate-latch.
To the side of the gate A is pivoted an up right rod, G, to the lower part of which is attached a short arm, H. The arm H passes through aslot or openingin the gate A, through a short slot in the rear end of the latch I, and to its end is hinged the rear endof a short bar, J. The forward end of the bar J is attached to the latch I, so that the said latch I may be moved longitudinally by moving the bar J. The forward part of the latch I passes through and plays up and down in a keeper, K, attached to the side of the forward end of the gate A.
The forward ends of the catches E F are inclined so as to raise the latch I and fasten the gate automatically as the gate is swung shut and open.
To the upper end of the upright rod G is rigidly attached an arm, L, which projects at an angle of about one hundred and thirty-five degrees (135) with the arm H, and has an endless rope, M, attached to its outer end. The endless rope M passes around pulleys N, pivoted to the outer ends of arms 0, attached to the upper ends of the posts P. The rope M, at the inner sides of the pulleys N, passes through guides Q, also attached to the arms 0.
The posts P are of such a height that loaded vehicles can pass beneath theirarms O. The post P upon the side of the gateway toward which the gate swings when being open ed is placed at the distance of about forty feet from the post B, and the other post P is placed at the distance of about thirty feet from the said post B, so that the gate can be opened and closed by a person in a vehicle without the team or vehicle interfering with the movement of the gate, and even without its being necessary to stop the team.
To the rope M, as near the pulleys N as they can be without interfering with the play of the rope over the said pulleys, are attached hanging handles R, for convenience in opening and closing the gate.
With this construction, when the gate A is closed and the ropeM is pulled upon the first effect is to turn the upright rod G, which causes the arm H to push the latch I outward, bringing a notch formed in the lower side of the said latch I opposite the catch F and allowing the gate to be swung shut.
Having thus fully described my invention, I claim as new and desire to. secure by Letters Patent 1. In a gate, the combination of the upright rod G, provided at its ends with the arms H L, and the bar J with the gate A, the latch I, and the endless rope M, attached to the arm L and passing around pulleys N, pivoted to the projecting arms of the posts P, substantially as herein shown and described, whereby the gate will be unlatched and then swung open or shut, as set forth.
2. In a gate, the combination of a slotted latch, I, with the arm H of the upright rod G, and the bar J, substantially as herein shown and described, whereby the latch I is made to move longitudinally and also vertically, with the arm H for its pivot, as set forth.
ARZA B. MINTON.
