SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 592,251 ,dated October 26, 1897.
Application filed May 28, 1896. `Seri-al No. 593,460. (No model.)
To all whom it mag/concern:
Be it known that I, DAVID D. 'OG ILVIE, a citizen 'of the United States, residing at Lee, in the county of Elko and State of Nevada, have invented a new and useful Gate, of which the following is aspecication.
The invention relates to improvements in gates. Y
Heretofore gates have been operated` by means of ropes connected to the rear end of a horizontal lever which is fulcrumed between its ends on a hinge-,post and which'has its front end connected with the latch of the gate fective device for offsetting the operatingrope,which closes the gate, sufficiently to-prevent a dead-center and enable the gate'to be readily closed.
' The invention consists in the construction and novel combination and arrangement of this invention.
parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and pointed out in the claim hereto appended.
In the drawings, Figure-1 is a perspective view of a gate constructed in accordancel with Fig. 2 is a detail view of the keeper of the latch-post.
Like numerals of reference designate oorresponding parts in both the figures ofthe drawings.
1 designates a swinging gate adapted t open ineither direction and arranged to swing away from the operator'to avoid frightening teams and enable the same to drive close to the gate to be opened. The gate, which may be hinged in any suitable manner, is provided with a latch-bar 2, disposed longitudinally, pivoted at its inner end, and operating through an opening orwmortise 3 of the front or outer end bar of the gate. The latch-bar projects beyond the gate and is adapted to engage a double keeper 4 of a' latch-post 5, and it is prevented from swinging past the same in closing by a stop 6, disposed centrally over the double keeper 4L and having its lower end beveled at opposite sides. The latch is connected at a point inadvance of its pivot with a Wire or rope 7, which extends upward through an eye of an arm 8 of the gate and which is connected with a horizontally-swinging lever 9. The lever is fulcrumed centrally on a support 10 and is connected with oppositely-disposed operating wires or ropes 11, extend-ing from the gatein opposite directions and Venabling the same to be operated a distance vfrom it. The frontend of the horizontally-disposed lever 9 is connected with the latch by the said wire or rope 7, and the connection with the latch 2 is at a point so near the pivot that a greater pull will be required to lift the latch than is necessary to swing the gate, whereby the gate will be swung sufiiciently to carry the latch-bar away from the stop 6, so that the latter will not interfere with the movement of the latch in opening the gate. The support`10 preferably consists of a post or upright, and it is braced by an inclined bar 12, extending from a short post 13 to the upper portion of the support 10, extending in advance of the same and provided with an eye receiving the upper pintle of the gate. The bar 12 is located directly in rear of the gate when the latter is closed.
. The outer portio'ns'of the operating wires or ropes 11 are provided with handles and depend from inclined arms 15a ofuprights 15, and the arms 15, which extend outward from the `uprights 15, are provided with pulleys 16, over which the wires or ropes pass.
The arm 8 extends vertically from the gate and may be provided with any suitable form of eye or guide for the latch wire or rope 7, and a pulley 8a is arranged in the guide or opening of the arm 8 to facilitate a free movement of the latch wire or rope 7. After the latch has been disengaged from the keeper of the latch-post the gate opens freely, and its movement is limited by posts 17, arranged at opposite sidesof the gate and provided with keepers 18, arranged to be engaged by the latch-bar 2 when the gate is open.
In order to enable the gate to be readily opened, the lever 9 has an offsetting device mounted on it in advance of its pivot, and this offsetting device consists of a cross-bar IOO 1U, which is rigidly secured to the lever, and upwardly-extending pins 20, which are located at the ends of the bar 19 and which are adapted, when the gate is opened, to engage the operating-ropes alternately to offset Jthe same from the lever and cause them to pull laterally on the same, whereby the gate is readily opened. lVhen one of the arms 2O is in eontaet with the operating-rope, the other is out of Such Contact.
It will be seen that the gate is positive and reliable in operation, that it is capable of being readily opened from either side of it without dismounting or leaving a vehicle, and that in opening it always swings away from the operator to enable teams to be driven close to the gate and to avoid frightening them.
Changes in the form7 proportion, and minor details of Construction may be resorted to without departing from the principle or saerieing any of the advantages of this invention.
\Vhat I claim is- The herein-deseribed gate, pivoted to swing in opposite directions, and provided with a latch 2, and an upright S, in combination with a erueiforin lever pivoted upon the hingepost, a oord passing from the lateh through the end of upright S, and secured to the forward end of the lever, pins 20 carried by arms lf) of the lever, and ropes extending from the rear of the lever to posts 15,011 opposite sides of the gate, all substantially as described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto aiiixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
DAVID l). OGILVIE.
