UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
BURTON B. OOFFEY, OF OARROLLTON, MISSOURI.
FASTENING FOR GATES.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 390,569, dated October 2, 1888.
Application filed September 23, 1886. Serial No. 214.366. (No model.)
To aZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, BURTON B. OoFEEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Carrollton, county of Carroll, and State of Missouri, have invented a new and useful Fastening for Gates, of which the following is a specification. v
This invention relates to fastenings for gates; and it consists in an improved construction, as hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a side elevation of a gate provided with iny-improved fastening. Fig. 2 is a top view of the same, and Fig. 3 is an enlarged plan of the fastening.
In the drawings, a adcsignate the posts between which is placed the gate b, the same being hinged to the post a. The post a is pro vided with a shoulder or stop, b, against which the gate rests when it is closed.
The fastening device is usually placed on the inner side against the upper rail of the gate and secured thereto.
The guard or housing (I is preferably constructed in the form shown,bulging or rounded at one side, which is slotted to receive one end of a lever which forms a catch and to allow its movement.
The lever e is pivoted to the housing (1 at the point where the short arm of the lever extends into the housing, an elbow being formed in the lever at that point. At the extremity of the long arm of the lever is formed a catch, a, and when the gate is closed the lever rests with the catch in connection with a loop or staple, f, which is fixed to the post a. A
spring, 9, which is placed in the housing (I and presses against a wall of the same and against the short arm of the lever, tends to keep the catch e in connection with the staple f.
A short hand-lever,h,is pivotally connected at z with the upper rail of the gate and extends somewhat below the pivot. To the lower end of lever h is connected one end of a rod, 0, which extends into the housing d. and is in position to engage the short arm of lever cand press against said arm, and thus raise the long arm with catch 6 from connection with the staple f. The extremity of the long arm of the lever is rounded, so that it will be raised when it is brought by closing the gate in contact with the staple f, and the catch then enters the staple and thus fastens the gate.
leased from the fastening by a movement of the hand-lever h in one direction, when the gate may be opened, and by simply closing the gate it is immediately fastened by the lever e, automatically connecting by catch c with the staplef.
1 claim In a gate-fastening, the combination of the slotted housing secured to the gate, a bent le ver pivoted to said housing with its. short arm extending therein and provided with a catch on the outer end, a staple on the post of the gate and in position to connect with said catch, hand-lever h, pivoted to the gate, connectingrod 0, extending into the housing in position to engage the short arm of the lever on one side,but not attached thereto, and a spring in position to press against the short arm on the opposite side, substantially as and for the pur poses described.
