No. 410,644. Patented Sept. 10, 1889 Jilin UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
ROBERT M. LIVELY AND LOUIS P. LIVELY, OF CANTON, TEXAS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 410,644, dated. September 10, 1889.
Application filed April 19, 1889. Serial No. 307,770. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, ROBERT M. LIVELY and LOUIS P. LIVELY, citizens of the United States, residing at Canton, in the county of Van Zandt and State of Texas, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Gates, of which the following is a specification.
Our invention relates to improvements in gates; and it consists in certain novel features hereinafter described and claimed.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side view of the gate, showing it closed. Fig. 2 is a similar view illustrating the movement of the latch-bar. Fig. 3 is partly a plan view and partly a transverse section.
In carrying out our invention we erect a latch-post A at one side of the road, and at the opposite side of the road we erect the hinge-posts B B,whicl1 are arranged adjacent to each other and have a sill 0 extending between their lower ends, and have their upper ends connected by a cap D, as clearly shown.
The gate is composed of the horizontal rails E and the vertical bars F, connecting the said rails, the said bars being arranged adjacent to the ends of the rails, as clearly shown. The bottom rail of the gate is provided in its under side with a socket or recess G, which is engaged over a pint-1e or stationary pivot H, projecting from the sill C.
The latch I is pivoted at its lower end to the bottom rail of the gate, and extends upward therefrom a slight distance above the top rail of the gate, so that its upper end can be utilized as a handle in the operation of the gate. The intermediate portion of the latch engages a hook J, projecting from the post A, and the latch is connected near its lower end by a connecting-bar K with the lower end of a lever L, which is pivoted at an intermediate point of its length between one of the rails of the gate and a short rail M, and has its upper end connected to the free end of ahorizontally-swinging arm N, which is pivoted on the cap D. The rail M is secured at its ends to two of the vertical bars F, and the lever L plays between the said vertical bars. The free end of the horizontally-swinging arm N is longitudinally slotted, as shown at O, and the upper end of the lever L enters the said slot. The end of the lever is secured in the said slot by means of a suitable pin passing through transverse openings P in the said arm and a notch in the upper end of the lever. By this c011- struction the lever can be adjusted to the proper point of the swinging arm to compensate for the sagging of the gate.
IVhen it is desired to open the gate, the upper end of the latch is swung toward the pivotal end of the gate, so as to be disengaged from the hook J, and the gate is then swung to the side of the roadway. Vhen the latch is moved, as just stated, the upper end of the lever L will be swung outward, so that the weight of the gate will be thrown onto the arm N, and the bending of the pintle or pivot II will be prevented. This arrangement also facilitates the closing of the gate, as will be readily understood.
Our device is very simple in its construction, and is composed of few parts, which are compactly arranged and are efficient in their operation.
The advantages of the gate are thought to be obvious, and detailed reference thereto is deemed unnecessary.
Having thus described our invention, what we claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patcut, is
1. The combination, with the gate having its bottom rail pivoted at one end, of the horizontally-swinging arm arranged above the gate, the vertical lever pivotally mounted on the gate and having its upper end connected with the free end of said arm, the vertical latch pivoted on the gate, and the connecting-bar between the latch and lever, as set forth.
2. The combination, with the gate and the horiZont-all y-swin gi n g arm arranged above the gate and provided in its free end with a longitudinal slot and a series of transverse perforations, of the vertical lever pivoted on the gate and having its upper end entering said slot, the pin passing through one of said transverse perforations and engaging the lever, the vertical latch, also pivoted on the gate, and the horizontally-sliding connectingbar between the lower ends of the latch and the lever, as set forth.
In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our own we have hereto affixed our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
ROBERT M. LIVELY. LOUIS P. LIVELY.
