WILLIAM W. SWEETLAND, OF EDWARDSBURG, MICHIGAN.
FARM-GATE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 333,695. dated January 5, 1886.
(No model.)
To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM W. SWEET- LAND, of Edwardsburg, in the county of Cass, and State of Michigan, have invented a new and Improved Farm-Gate, of which the fol lowing is a full, clear, and exact description.
The object of my invention is to provide a new and improved farm-gate,which can easily be opened from either side of the gate, and is automatically locked in position, both when open or closed.
The invention consists in the construction and combination of parts and details, as will be fully described and set forth hereinafter.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is a perspective View of my improved gate. Fig. 2 is a detail side View of one end, parts being broken out and others in section. Fig. 3 is a sectional plan view of one of the posts against which the gate is swung when open. Fig. 4 is a sectional plan view of the post against which the gate swings when closed. Fig. 5 is a sectional plan view of the swinging end of the gate. Fig. 6 is an elevation of the post against which the gate swings.
The gate A is hinged on the post B in the usual manner, on the top of which post B a grooved toothed wheel, 0, is pivoted, to re volve in the horizontal plane. A post, D, is erected at each side of the gate and in line with the post B at a distance equal to the length of the gate from the post B. A short distance beyond each post D, and in line with the same and the post B, a post, E, is erected, which posts E are higher than the posts D. Ropes F, having handles or weights G, to keep them taut, on their ends, are passed over pulleys H on the posts E and around the wheel 0 in opposite directions, and are secured to the upper end of a forked lever, I, pivoted on the gate, to swing in the direction of the length of the same. A bolt, J, is passed through a slot in the swinging end post, A, of the gate, and is connected by a wire, K, with the lever I. A spring, L, on the post A acts on the bolt J, and presses the same outward. In a slot, in the post A a sliding bolt, M, is held some distance below the bolt J, and said bolt M has a cross-piece, N, to prevent withdrawing it entirely from the post A. Each post D has a bevel-hook, 0, provided with a notch, O, and also a projecting curved prong, W.
The post P, against which the swinging end of the gate rests when the gate is closed, is provided in its inner side with a cross-piece, Q, having a notch or recess, B, through which the upper end of a latch-bar, S, passes,which is pivoted on the inner side ofthe post P, the upper end of the bar being bent toward the post, to form a latch, and the lower end being forked and sliding on a piece, T, projecting from the post P.
The operation is as follows: As shown in Fig. l, the gate is closed. To open it, either rope F is pulled, and the gate is swung toward one post D, the bolt J catching in the notch O of the book 0, thus locking the gate open. The inner end of the bolt M strikes the curved prong W, and thereby the bolt M is pushed outward, to project from the outer side of the post A, as shown in Fig. 3. To close thegate, the other rope is pulled and the gate is swung to the post P, and the projecting bolt M, striking the projection T, as shown in Fig. 4:, prevents the swinging end of the gate from swinging past said post. \Vhen the bolt J snaps into the notch in the cross-piece Q, it strikes the upper end of the bar S, and pushes the same toward the post P, whereby the lower end of said bar is moved from the post P, and striking the bolt M, pushes the same inward, so that it will not interfere with the working or swinging of the gate. By pulling on either rope F, for the purpose of opening or closing the gate, the lever I is swung in the direction of the arrow a, and thereby the bolt J is withdrawn from the notch in the cross-piece Q or in the hook 0.
Having thus described my invention, what claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. The combination, with the posts 13 D P, of the gate A, the latch M in the swinging end of the gate, the projection T on the post P, and the curved prongs W on the posts D, substantially as herein shown and described.
2. The combination, with the posts B D P, of the gate A, the latches M and J in the swinging end piece of the same, the notched P, the projection T on the post P, the hooks 10 O, and curved prongs WV on the posts D, and
of the bar S, pivoted on the post P, substantially as herein shown and described.
