Gate Latch. I 4

No. 37,028. T

lMPROVEME NT IN GATE-LATCHES.

Specification forn'iing part of Letters Patent No. 37,028, dated NoVember Q-S, 1862.

' To all whom, it may concern:

Be it known that 1, JOHN ELLIs, ofDetroit,v in the county of Vayne and State ofMichigan, have invented new and useful Improvements in Gate-Latches; and I do hereby declare'that the following is a full and complete description of the construction and operation ot'the samemeference being had to theaccompanying drawings, making partof thisspecitication, in which.

Figure l is a front view. Fig. 2 is a vertical section in the direction of the line 00 a: in Fig. 3. Fig. 3 is a side View. Fig. 4 is a section in the direction of the line mzv in Fig.. 1, and Fig. 5 is a detached part.

Like letters refer to like parts in the several views.

The nature of my invention relates to such a construction of a gate latch that when applied to self-acting gates or others it can by no possible means, dependent upon its legitimate action, become deranged, and thus allow the gate to pass through beyond .the post; and at the same time the structure is such that the gate can swing in either direction in opening or shutting.

A represents a plate that is attached to the inner face of the gate-post B by means of two screws,A,and C O on thelower end of the plate showing the catch between which the latch is 'held when the gate shuts. These are attached to or cast with the plate A, all the parts being made of cast-iron.

D D are brackets,also cast upon the plate A, which serve'to support the pend ulated stop E, which, by means of the projections E E, rests upon them, as seen in Fig. 2.

F F are pendulated catches which are suspended upon the head of the stop E, and are kept thus in place by their gravity. Either one are suspended, rests upon the head E of the stop E.

1n the several figures, I represents a transverse section of the gate-latch. When the gate shuts, the latch I strikes against the inclined planes 0 F, rising on theinclined plane 0 and lifting the pendulated catch F until the latch I comes in contact with the stop E, which is thrown vforward until it strikes against the lower end of one of the brackets 1) D, thus arresting the further progress of the latch, which by its gravity falls into its position, (seen in Figs. 1, 2, and 3,) and this is the case from whichever way the gate swings, the two sides of the catch being duplicates of each other, the pendulated stop E performing the same office from whichever way the gate swings. Now, if the latch I is raised for the purpose of opening the gate,thelatch lifts the pendulated stop E, and with it both the pendulated catches F, and the gate can be opened without obstruction.

What I claim as my improvement, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

The pendulated stop E and pendulated catches F, when arranged and operated as and for the purpose specified.

JOHN ELLIS.
