GATE.
'sPncIr-IcAr oN forming part of Letters Patent. No. 352,080, dated November 2,1886.
Application filed March 11, 1886.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that we, HENRYP. BULLOCK and HENRY P. CAYOE, of Jonesborough, in the county of Ooryell and State of Texas, have invented a new and Improved Gate, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
Our invention relates to gates, especially farm-gates, and has for its object to provide a simple, inexpensive, and self closing gate which may be opened automatically by the depression of a platform in the gateway, or may be opened by the pulling of cords pendent from a support at or near the gateway.
lhe invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations of parts of the gate, all as hereinafter fully set forth.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming apart of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in both the figures.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the gate shown closed and partly broken away and in section; and Fig. 2 is a side elevation, partly broken away and drawn to asmaller scale,l and shows the gate open.
Two pairs of posts, A A and B B, are set in line with the fence 0, which, as shown, con- 'sists of wires, said posts being tied together by horizontal bars D'D, between which the gate E and its operating-levers work, and the tops of the pairs of posts are connected by cross-bars a b, respectively.
To the ihner faces of the bars D D are fixed a pair of opposite shorter rails or track-bars, d, on which the opposite top rails, f f, of the gate F run, and between the inner ends of the rails f f there is fixed an arm, G, to which are pivoted at g the outer endsof a pair of bars or links, H, the inner ends ,of which are pivoted at h tothe diagonally-ranging lever, I, which is pivoted at its lower end by a pin, 2, to and between the posts B B.
At a point below the pivot h the lever I is pivoted at j to and between a pair of upright movable bars, J J,which are held to each other by bolts passed through them and through a spacing-block, j, which is a little thicker than the lever I, and to and between the lower ends of the bars J J is pivoted at k the inner end of a lever, K, which passes outward between the posts A A and is fdlcrumed Serial No. 194.912. (No model.)
thereto on a pin, it. The outer end, lo of the lever Kis arranged in such relation to the opposite platforms, L L,which lie across the gate- Way,that when either platform is depressed by a passing vehicle the lever will be lowered thereby and the inner end of the lever will be raised, whereby the lever'I will be swung over backward as the bars J J are lifted, and the gate F will be drawn backward between the posts A A or opened, as indicated in Fig. 2, and as soon asthe depressing weight is taken from the platforms L the weight of the parts I J H on the inner end of lever K will cause the gate to close automatically. i
If desired,.a spring, M, may be arranged between the rear posts, B, and the bars, J or lever I, to insu re or assist the closing of the gate.
To make the weight of the gate F available to assist in closing it, a pin, N, may be passed through holes 02 a, made in the links H and bar G, to hold them in line, whereby, when the gate is thrown backward to open it, it will be lifted from the tops of the supporting trackbars (1, and will rest on the upper forward corners of said bars, as indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 2; hence the lifted open gate will easily slide over the ends of bars d as it falls by gravity to a horizontal position in closing.
To allow the gate to be opened by persons on horseback from either side, a rope, O, is con nected at one end to the upper end of the lever I, and thence passed to and over a pulley or sheave, P, journaled to the top of posts B B, and thence forward to where it connects at o with the two cords R S, which extend over the top of the headpiece a of posts A A, and hang therefrom within reach of the rider. Pins 7' r and s s, fixed in the head-piece a, hold the cords R S in proper positions, so that they can not be pulled off the head-piece.
The post '1, at the farther side of the gateway, may be provided with pairs of blocks t 25, between which the end of the closed gate may rest to prevent sidewise racking of the gate. r
A series of holes may be made in the gateposts A A, as at a, to receive the fulcrum-pin k of the-lever K, for giving a greater or less throw to the gate in opening it, and a pin, U, may be passed through holes a, made in the gate and behind the posts A, to hold the gate open when it may be desirable or necessary,
as will be understood from Fig. 2 of the drawings.
The gate will not sag to the ground, and will not freeze up easily, and is inexpensive to make and to set up along railroads or on farms, or in other localities where a gate of this character would be useful.
Having thus fully described our invention, we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1. The combination of the gate F, front and rear posts, A B, lever K, pivoted between its ends to the lower ends of the front posts, a vertical1y-1novable platform, L, in the gateway, adapted to operate the front end of the lever K, bars J, connected at the lower ends to the rear end of lever K, a forwardly-in clined lever, I, pivoted at its lower end to the lower ends of the rear posts and at j to the bars J, and links H, pivotally connecting the gate and the lever 1 above the point j, substantially as set forth.
2. The combination, with the gate F, forwardly-inclined lever I, having a pivotal connection therewith, vertical bars J, pivoted between their ends to the said lever, and links H, connecting the lever I to the gate above the point of connection with bars J, of the spring M, acting between the rear posts-and the lever I, and means for moving the said le- 0 ver and bars upward against the action of the spring, substantially as set forth.
3. The combination, with the gate F, front and rear posts, A B, forwardly-inclined lever I, pivoted at its lower end to the rear posts, and links H, connected to the inner end of the gate and to the lever I between its ends, of the cord 0, connected to the upper end of lever I, the guide-pulley P at the upper ends of the rear posts, over which the cord passes, and 40 cords R S, connected to the end of cord O,and pendent from a head-piece, a, on the front posts, substantially as set forth.
4. The combination, with the gate F, forwardly-inclined lever I, pivoted at its lower end to the rear gate-posts, and links H, pivoted to the rear end of the gate and to the le ver between its ends, of a pin, N, passed through holes in the links H beyond their pivotal points and through abar fixed to the rear end of the gate, substantially as set forth, whereby the gate will be lifted as it is opened.
