CHARLES SALGADQ JENKINS, OF LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO FRANK PEARCE RHOADES, OF SAME PLACE.

DEVICE. FOR SUSPEN-DING, OPENING, OR CLOSING GATES.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters IPatent No. 601,257, dated March 29, 1898.

Application filed January 14, 1897 Serial No. 619 ,173. (No model.) A

To all whom it nmy concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLES SALGADO JEN- KINS, of the city of Los Angeles, in the county of Los Angeles and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Devices for Suspending, Opening, or Closing Gates, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description or specification, reference being had to the annexed sheet'of drawings and to the letters marked thereon.

My invention, which relates to movable gates or doors which are suspended from rollers above and sliding or rolling upon a guide or rail, has for its object always to maintain the gate or door so that it cannotbe unshipped from its working position. My invention has also for its object to provide a simple vertical adjustment for such gates or doors.

The first object is accomplished by means of an upright wherein an opening is made through which the gate or door passes, the gate or door being of such a length that while it completely closes up the space intended to be closed or opened it is also long enough to extend beyond or to the outside of the post wherein the aforesaid opening is made, the parts being so arranged that when the gate or door is opened, so as to allow the passage of a person, a horse, or a vehicle through the gateway or door, the vertical position of the gate or door is always maintained by the opening in the post through which the gate passes, it not being possible to slide the gate out of the opening in the said post either when in the open or closed position.

' The second object is accomplished by making a vertical hole in one or both of the end posts of the gate, whereinto a vertical sliding piece suspended from the rollers above passes and wherein the sliding piece is capable of being fixed for the purpose of suspending the gate or door in the required working position.

On the annexed sheet of drawings, Figure l is a front elevation of a gate and gateway constructed in accordance with my improvement. Fig. 2 is a transverse section of the same on the line a a, Fig. l. Fig. 3 is an end elevation of a portion of the adjustable end of the gate. Fig. 4 is a vertical section of the same,

showing the adjusting device.

In the drawings, the gate is marked A, to

one of the end posts of which and to the sliding bar H there are attached the metallic straps B by bolts, as shown. The space between the metallic straps B is sufiicientto clear the upper part of the framing G, and at the upper end of each pair of straps B there is carried a roller D, by which the gate is supported so as to roll upon the rail E, the rail being preferably of triangular form, as more particularly shown at Fig. 2. The post F is constructed as shown in the drawings-that is to say, with a vertical opening therein of such a height and width as to allow the body of the gate A to pass freely through it. The end posts of the gate A are of a greater height than the height of the opening in the post F, which prevents the end posts of the gate from passing through the opening. In this way it is impossible for the gate to become unshipped or to be moved out of its proper vertical working position. The rollers D, by which the gate is traversed upon the rail E, are carried upon a screwed shaft with nuts upon it for clamping the upper ends of the straps B, so as to keep them at the requisite distance apart.

Although I have on the annexed sheet of drawings shown the framing carrying the gate constructed according to my invention as having an end post G, yet it is to be understood that the end post G is no essential part of my invention and may therefore be dispensed with, as the upper beam 0 of the framing may project without using an end support 0 for carrying it.

The device for adjusting the gate or door vertically consists of a sliding bar H, which fits into a correspondingly-vertical hole I, formed in the end post of the gate, as more particularly shown in the detailed views,Figs. 3 and 4.

A spring-plate J of the form shown is attached by screws 0 c to the top of the end post of the gate, and it has formed in it a hole corresponding to the vertical hole I in the end post of the gate, so that the slide H can pass through the upper part of the plate J into the hole I. The plate J is bent down over one side of the end post of the gate, as shown, and its lower end is bent in ward at right angles, as shown at J. The inner edge of the part J is formed sharp, with serrated teeth,which,

as they are pressed against the slide II by tightening the screws L, consequently hold the slide H and the gate in any required relation of adjustment to each other. By loosening the screws L the teeth of the part J of the plate are released by the action of the spring-plate J from the slide H, so as to permit any alteration upward or downward in the vertical adjustment. This adjustment in most cases only requires to be applied to one of the end posts of the gate; but circumstances may arise when it may be desirable to apply this adjustment to both of the end posts.

Having now described the nature of my said invention and the best system, mode, or manner I am at present acquainted with for carrying the same into practical effect, I desire to observe in conclusion that what I consider to be novel and original, and therefore claim as the invention to be secured to me by Letters Patent, is as follows:

1. The sliding gate or door device consisting of a rectangular framing in one post of which there is a vertical opening closed at its top, through which opening the sliding gate or door passes, the gate being constructed with a post at one end and an adjustable bar and bar-locking device at the other end, the post and adjustable bar being both of greater height than the height of the opening in the post through which the gate slides thus preventing the said gate from being moved out of the said opening either longitudinally or vertically, the said gate being suspended by metallic straps, one pair of whichis attached to the end post and the other pair to the vertically-adjustable bar and each pair of straps carrying at their upper ends rollers operating on the rail at the upper part of the framing, substantially as set forth.

2. The device for the vertical adjustment of sliding gates or doors consisting of the vertically-sliding bar passing into the vertical hole in the end post of the gate or door, the spring-plate having serrated teeth for being pressed in said sliding bar, the screws for pressing said teeth into the sliding bar in order to eifect the vertical adjustment of the gate or door, all operating together in the manner and for the purposes substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof I, the said CHARLES SALGADO JENKINS, have hereunto set my hand, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses, this (3th day of November, A. D. 1896.
