' UNITE STATES PATENT O FICE.
DAVID RUDY, OF GREENVILLE, OHIO, ASSIGNOR OF TWO-THIRDS TO ISAAC K. HOLLINGER AND THE HOLLINGER FENCE COMPANY.
GATE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 541,289, dated June 18, 1 895.
Application filed February 20, 1895. Serial No. 539,136. (No model.)
Zb aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, DAVID RUDY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Greenville,
in the county of Darke and State of Ohio,
have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gates; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to improvements in swinging gates and more particularly to mechanism for opening and closing the same; and it has for one of its objects to provide in conjunction with a swinging gate, cheap and simple mechanism through the medium of which the gate may be quickly opened and closed by a person, seated in a vehicle or on horseback, with the exercise of but little effort.
Another object of the invention is to provide, in conjunction with a gate, mechanism which of itself is adapted to complete the opening and closing movement of the gate and thus render it unnecessary for a person to retain hold of and move the operating levers during the entire movement of the gate.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be fully understood from the followin g description and claims when taken in connection with the annexed drawing, in which the figure is a perspective view illustrating a swinging gate and my improved mechanism for opening and closing the same.
Referring by letter to said drawing, A, indicates a swinging gate which is shown as made of gas pipe, although it may be made of any suitable material.
B, indicates a post on one side of a roadway, to which the gate is hinged.
0, indicates a post on the opposite side of the roadway, which has a keeper a, for the engagement of the endwise slidable latch 17, of the gate; and D, E, indicate the posts on which the gate operating or opening and closing mechanism is mounted. These posts D, E, are arranged on the same side of the roadway-as the post B, and in front and rear of saidpost as illustrated, and the posts D, are designed .for the connection of the hand levers F, while the posts E, which are arranged the movement of which in opposite directions opens and closes the gate as will be presently described.
The levers G, G, arefulcrumed upon the sides of the posts E, as shown so as to enable them to swing in a vertical plane, and the lever G, has its lower end connected by a link or pitman H, with the latch or latch bar I), of the gate whereby it will be seen that when the lever is rocked in the direction indicated then pulled open, and when said lever is rocked in a direction opposite to that indicated by arrow, the gate will first be pushed to a closed position, and the latch b, will then be pushedinthe direction indicated by arrow to lock it in such position. The said levers G, G, preferably have their lower ends connected by a rod or link I, while their upper ends are connected by a rod or link J, which is preferably made heavy or is provided with a weight (not illustrated) for a purpose presently described. Upon rod or link J, is a guide K, which has the upwardly converging ways L, L, designed to receive a bolt P, or other connection (which may be a roller or other anti-friction device) carried by the links or arms M, which are loosely connected to the inner contiguous ends of the hand levers F, as shown.
When the gate is closed and latched, the several parts of the operating or opening and closing mechanism will rest in the positions illustrated. Now when the outer end of either one of the hand levers F, is depressed, the in ner ends of said levers together with the arms or links M, and the bolt P, will be raised; and by reason of its moving upwardly in the way L, of the guide K, said I guide together with the rod or link J, and the levers G, G, will be moved in the direction indicated by arrow (1, and in consequence the gate will be unlatched and pulledpartly open. The bolt P, will be carried past the apex of the guide K, or the converging point of the ways L, L, and the opening movement of the gate will be completed, by the momentum which the bar J, and the other parts have acquired from ICO the initial movement of the levers F, and said bar J, and guide K, will be moved so that the bolt P, will assume a position in the lower end of the way L, and the hand levers F, will assume the position illustrated.
iVhen the gate is open and it is desired to close the same it is simply necessary to depress the outer ends of thelevers F, when the inner ends'of said levers together with the arms or links M, and the bolt P, will be raised; and by reason of said bolt P, moving upwardly in the Way L, of the guide K, said guide together with the rod or link J, and the levers G, G, will be moved in the direction opposite to that indicated by arrow d, and in consequence the gate will be pushed partly closed. The bolt P, will becarried past the apex of the guide K, or the converging point of the ways L, L, and the closing movement of the gate will be completed by the momentum which the bar J, and the other parts have acquired from the initial movement of the levers F, and said bar J, and guide K, will be moved so that the bolt P, will assume a position in the lower end of the way L, and the hand levers F, will assume the position illustrated.
From the foregoing it will be readily observed that it is unnecessary for a person to retain hold of and move the operating levers during the entire opening and closing movements ofthe gate, and it will also be observed that the gate may be opened and closed, by a person seated in a vehicle or on horseback, with the exercise of but little efiort, which is an important advantage as is obvious. It will be further observed that with all of its advantages, my improved gate opening and closing mechanism is very cheap and simple;
and that it may be quickly and easily repaired when any of the parts are worn or broken, which is a desideratum.
The bar or link I, is not essential but is preferably employed, and the latch barb, is also not essential as the weighted or heavy bar J, will hold the gate in its closed position. iVhen the latch bar I), is omitted the link or pitman H, may be connected with any suitable part of the gate.
levers connected by a link or pitman with the gate, a heavy or weighted bar or link connecting the upper ends of said levers, a guide carried by the said bar or link and having 6o 2. The combination with a swinging gate; of
the converging ways, a device arranged and adapted to move in the ways of the guide and a hand lever connected with said device sub stantially as and for the purpose set forth;
3. The combination with a post B, a postO, having a keeper and a gate connected in a hinged manner to the post B, and having an endwise slidable latch adapted to engage the keeper of the post 0; of levers connected by a link or pitman with the latch-bar of the gate, a bar or link connecting the upper ends of the said levers, a guide carried by the said bar or link and having the converging and communicating ways, a device arranged and adapted to move in the ways of the guide'and a hand lever connected with said device, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
4. The combination with a movable gate; of a lever having its lower end connected by a pitman or link with the gate, a guide connected with the upper end of the said lever and having the convergingand communicating ways, a device arranged and adapted to move in the ways of the guide and a hand lever connected with said device, substantially as specified.
In testimony whereof I atiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
