GATE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 338,190, dated March 16,1886.
' Application filed September .22, 1885. Serial No. 177,836. (ModeL) To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, SVILLIAM M. PRICE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Crystal Springs, in the county of Oopiah and State of Mississippi, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gates, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
The object of this improvement is to provide a farm-gate of economical construction and simple operation, not liable to get out of order, and that can be opened and closed from either side by travelers without dislnounting from horseback or vehicle. These results are attained by the mechanism illustrated in the drawings herewith filed as part hereof, in which the same letters of reference denote the same parts in the different views.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a farmgate embodying the features of my improvement. Fig. 2 is a perspective representation of the hingepost as seen from opposite directions.
A A A is the gate-frame.
B and O are the gate-posts,provided at their upper ends with perforations for the reception of the rounded or journaled ends of a beam, D, arranged to support, act as a fulcrum for, and oscillate in connection with, a lever, E E, which is rigidly affixed to the beam D intermediate of its ends, by any suitable means, substantially as shown.
B B are pintles or links secured to the postB in a manner to have inclinations in opposite directions to each other, as fully shown in Fig. 2.
The upright A of the gate-frame is pro vided, as shown at a a, with eyebolts, by means of which the gate-frame is connected with the pintles B B of the post 13.
The length of the leverE E is the same on both sides of the beam D.
E E are handles suspended by means of eyes d from the lever E E for use and convenience in operating the same, as hereinafter explained.
F is an arm of the lever E E, from which it is sufficiently extended at an acute angle to bring its outer end endwise beyond the end of the gate-frame to give it an angular connection with the gate upright piece A?, through the rod G, and eyes gf, for a purpose hereinafter set forth.
The gate-frame is provided with an ordinary latch-bar, a, which engages with a catch, 0, fixed to the post 0, and secures the gate when closed.
The operation is as follows: By pulling down on the part E of the oscillating lever the beam D will turn in its bearings in the tops of the posts B O, and elevate the outer end of the lever-arm F, which, by reason of its connection with the gate-frame through the rod G, will raise the gate-frame and dis engage the latch a from the catch 0 on the post 0. With the upward movement of the gate-frame and the eyes a a on the oppositely-inclined pintles B B the lower hinged corner of the gate-frame will move inward on the inclined pintle, and the'upper hinged corner will move outward, and the gate will swing open as the frame is elevated 011 the pintles. The rod G will pull on the gateframe in a manner and direction to facilitate the opening of the same. After being opened, the gravitation of the gate-frame will cause it to descend, and unless propped open the gate will close itself by reason of the outward action of the lower hinged corner and the inward action of the upper hinged corner on their oppositely-inclined pintles. When the gate is passed through from the direction of the part E of the lever EE, the closing of the same may be facilitated by pulling down on the part E. The gate may also be opened by pushing up the part E and closed by pushing up the part E.
By reason of the pendent handles E the lever E E can be more conveniently operated by travelers, especially persons in vehicles, than would otherwise be practicable, as the pendent handles can be easily reached when the lever would be inaccessible.
I am aware that opening gates from opposite sides by means of a lever affixed to an oscillating beam supported by the gate-posts is not new. I therefore do not broadly claim such feature of the within-described mechanism; but
What I claim, and desire to secure by Let- I and arranged to operate the same, as and for ters Patent, is the purpose set forth. 10 The combination of the gate-frame provid- In testimony whereof I affix my signature in ed with eyes, as shown, and the post providpresence of two witnesses. 5 ed with oppositely-inclined pintles with the \VILLIAhI 1\/I.
