G.H.0'H0ATE.
GATB HINGB. No. 590,880. Patented Sept. 28,1897.
A W f W M019 NITE ATENT oATE-HiNoE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 590,880, dated September 28, 1897. Application filed .Tune 18, 1897. Serial No. 641,303. (No modeL) To 'zZZ wlwm it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE H. CHOATE, of Hailey, in the county of Blaine and State of Idaho, have invented a new and Improved Hinge, of which the followingis a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention is a hinge adapted particularly for gates; and the object of the inven tion is to provide a Superior hinge in which the hinged part may swing freely in either direction and will automatically return to a central position when the gate is released.
This specification is the disclosure of one form of my inventiou, while the claim defines the actual scope of the conception.
Reference is to be had to theaccompanying drawings, formingapart of this specification, in which similar characters o f reference indi-V cate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is a side elevation .of the invention, showing the same in use as a gate-hinge. Fig. 2 is a sectional View of the invention on' the line 2 2 of Fig. 1, and Fig. 3 is a face View showing the hinge open.
The postAhas'two plates 5, secured by'any suitable means to its sides, and each plate 5 has an arm 6 hinged thereto, said arms being located one above the other. Ooiled around each pintle of the hinges, between the plates 5 and arms 6, is a spring 7. One end of each spring 7 engages the post A, and the other end is provided with a hook 8, the hooks passing through openings in the free portions of the arms 6.
The gate B has two plates 9 secured to the side faces of its inner post. The plates 6 are crossed,as best indicated in Fig. 2, and hinged, respectively, to the plates 9. The disposition of the Springs 7 is such that they will tend always to' keep the parts in the position shown in Fig. 2. In the open position of the gate, as shown in Fig. 3, the arms 6 are approximately in alinement with each other and will strain each spring 7, so that upon releasing'the pressure on the gate the parts will assu me the normal position, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2.
Myimprovedhingebeingmade of wroughtiron is durablc to a marked degree. and by the novel manner of fastcning the hinge to the post and gate the gate is allowed to swing against the fence ou either side of the post.
Various changes in the form, proportion, and minor details of my invention may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope thereof Hence I do not consider myself limited to the precise construction herein shown, but believe that I am entitled to all 'such variations as come within the terms of my claim.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as newand desire to secure by Letters Patent- In a hinge the combination of two arms, one end of each arm being hinged to a support, and a spring actuating the hinge, the arms being normally crossed one above the other, and the spring serving to hold the arms in said position, the remaining ends of the arms being adapted to be hinged to a second support.
