EDVIN H. PENFIELD, OF SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA.
FARM-GATE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent: No. 339,459, dated April 6, 1886.
Application filed December 8, 1885. Serial No. 185,057. (No model.) i
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EDWIN H. PENFIELD, of Santa Barbara, in the county of Santa Barbara and State of California, have invented a new and Improved Farm-Gate, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to certain improvements in my new farm'gate shown and described in my application for Letters Patent filed June 1, 1885, Serial No. 167,319; and my present invention consists, principally, of a special construction of the lever or hinge rod and of means connected therewith for operat ing double gates.
The invention also consists of the construction, arrangement, and combination of parts, all as hereinafter described and claimed.
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 front elevation of my new and improved double gate. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the same, showing the gates closed in full lines and open in dotted lines. Fig. 3 is an enlarged detailed View showing a modification, and Fig. 4 is a perspective View of a modified form of hinge-rod.
A A represent the two wings of the gate. The wing A is hinged to the post B by the hinge or lever rod 0, which is attached to the wing by the plates 0 c, and held in the eyebolts c" c, driven into the post B.
Upon the upper end of the rod C- is placed loosely the tube 1), held at the proper elevation by the collar 0 formed or secured upon the rod C. The tube D is formed or provided at its upper end with the two opposite horizontal levers or arms (2 d, to which the gateopening and gate-closing cords or wires 8 s and t i are respectively attached. The tube D is connected with the wing A by the horizontal arm (2 which is rigidly connected with the tube and formed at its outer end with the two downwardly-projecting fingers d d, that span and embrace the upper bar, y, of the wing A. The arm or lever d stands at an acute angle with the arm (l and the arm d at an obtuse angle with arm (2 and the wires or cords s s and t I? extend some distance from the gate, so that the gate may be operated from a distance, as hereinafter described.
Attached to the outer end of the arm (1 is the cord or wire f. This passes between the Vertical guide-pulleys y 9, held upon the upper edge of the bar y by the plate 9', and passes thence over the pulley h, down to the springlatch E, to which it is attached.
In double gates the latch E has pivoted to it a small bar or rod, E, which passes down the perpendicular frame-piece of the wing A, and through a loop near its bottom end, and is adapted to engage with the central stop block, V. This rod E operates simultaneously with the latch E. The wing A is hinged to the post F by the hingerod G, which is attached to the wing by the horizontal plates i i, and held in the eyebolts z" '27, driven into the post F. The plates i 27 are rigidly secured to the hinge-rod G, and the rod G and wing A are held at the proper elevation by a collar, '6 formed upon or secured to the rod G, resting upon the upper eyebolt i, as shown in Fig. 1. The lower end of the hinge-rod G reaches below a bridge or platform, V, below the gate, and is bent to form the arm j. The hinge-rod C also reaches below the bridge V, and is bent to form the arm is. The arm j stands at an acute angle with the wing A, while the armk projects in the opposite direction and stands at an obtuse angle with the wing A, and the extremities of the arms j k are connected together by the long rod H, so that when the wing A is swung open, and the hinge-rod C thereby turned in the eyebolts c, the rod H will communicate a like but opposite motion to the hinge-rod G and swing open the wing A. The closing of the wing A will cause hinge-rod O to communicate an opposite motion to the rod G, and simultaneously close the wing A'.
It will be understood that the arm d of the tube Dis for raising the latch or latches of the gate, and also for swinging the wing A open and closed; and in order that the said arm may have sufficient vibration to lift the latch or latches before moving the wing of the gate, I form the two fingers d (1* a distance apart greater than the thickness of the upper bar, y, of the wing A, so that the fingers will permit the arm cl" to move sidewise independently of the wing A a sufficient distance to draw cord f and lift the latch or latches before coming in contact with the wing. In some cases will communicate direct movementto the rod (3, instead of communicating it through. the arm (1, wing A, and plates 0. The feather and groove will be used in case the rod is not formed or provided with the rigid plates 0.
The operation ofthe gate is as follows:' The gate being closed, in order to open it the cord or wire 8 or i must be drawn, which will turn tube D on the hinge-rod G and swing the arm d sidewise, which movement will first draw cord fand lift the latches E and E out of their retaining-notches m 122., made, respectively, in the wing A and the stop-block V. The arm (1" will now come in contact with the upper bar, y, of the wing A, so that the power applied to the opening-cord will now be applied to the wing A and cause it to swing open. The swinging of wing A will turn the hinge-rod O in its bearings and cause it, through arm A, rod H, arm j, and hinge-rod G, to swing open the wing A, as above described. In order to close the gate, the cord or wire 8 or t must be drawn. This will impart a reverse action to the operative parts of the gatethat is, it will swing arm (1 in the opposite direction and cause it first to lift the latches. Then finger (I will strike the opposite side of the wing A and swing it closed, and the backward movement of the wing A will turn the hinge-rod 0 back to its original position and cause it to close the wing A. I
In single-panel gates the arms (I d d may be rigidly attached to or made a part of the hingerod 0, as shown in Fig. 4, and the tube D and arm is may be dispensed with, and the gatepanel will be attached to the hinge-rod by the eye-plates c", or other suitable means, resting upon collars 0 formed upon the rod to keep the gate at the proper elevation.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The hinge-rod C for gates, carrying at its upper end the oppositely-projecting arms at d, and the arm d below the arms (I d, having the downwardly-projecting fingers d d*, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
2. The combination, with the hinge-rod (1, provided with the plates 0 c, of the tube D, fittingloosel y on the upper end of the said rod, and provided at its upper end with the arms (Z d, and the arm d below the arms (I d, provided with the fingers d d*, substantially as herein shown and described.
3. The combination, with a gate and its latch, of the hinge-rod 0, provided with the plates 0, for securing the rod to the gate, the tube D, provided with the arms d d, the arm (1 having the fingers d" d projecting down on opposite sides of the top rail of the gate, and the cord f, connected to the latch and the outer end of said arm (1, substantially as herein shown and described.
4. The combination, with the gates A A, the postsBF, the latch E, and the rod E, pivoted to the latch E, of the hinge-rod G, provided with the arm j at its lower end, the
hinge-rod 0, provided with arm 70 at its lower' end, and carrying the oppositely-projecting arms (I d at its upper end, and the arm 12 below the said arms, having downwardly-projecting fingers d d, the rope or cord f, con- .nected to the latch and to the arm d", and the rod H, connecting the arms j k, substantially as herein shown and described.
