CHARLES A. DOl-IME, OF STELVIDEO, OHIO.

GATE- POST.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 611,568, dated September 27, 1898.

Application filed April 6, 1898. Serial No. 676,654. (No model.)

To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that 1, CHARLES A. DOHME, a

citizen of the United States, residing at Stel-v video, in the county of Darke and State of Ohio, have invented a new and useful Gate- Post, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to improvements in gate-posts.

The object of the present invention is to provide a latch-post designed to be arranged to be engaged by the latches of a general d rive-gate and a smaller stock-gate and adapted to be removed to clear the entire space between the hinge-posts of the gates when the latter are open and when it is desired to provide a wide gateway for the passage of a binder or similar agricultural machinery and thereby obviate the necessity of mounting a binder upon a truck to carry it through a smaller gateway or employing an extra large and clumsy gate to afford the necessary passage-way. i

The invention consists in the construction and novel combination and arrangement of parts, as hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and

pointed out in the claims hereto appended.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of a gate-post constructed in accordance with this invention and shown applied to apair of gates. Fig. 2 is a perspective View of the gate-post and the base. Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view of the lower portion of the post, illustrating the manner of interlocking the same with the base. Fig. 4 is a horizontal sectional view.

Like numerals of reference designate cort responding parts in all the figures of the drawings.

1 and 2 designate gates, arranged in alinement when closed, hinged at their outer ends to posts 3 and 4, and having their adjacent ends engaging a latch-post 5, which is common to both of the gates and which when the same are both open is adapted to be removed to clear the entire space between the hingeposts for affording a passag'e-wayfor a binder and a team hitched to the same. The gate 2, which is used for general drive purposes, is preferably about ten feet in length, and the gate 1, which is a stock-gate, is about half the length of the gate 2, and when both of the gates are open and the post 5 is removed it will be seen that ample space is provided :for the passage of large machinery..

The latch-post 5, which may be of any desired size and shape, is provided with a vertical loop or keeper 6, adapted to be engaged by sliding latches 7 and S of the gates 1 and 2, and in order to prevent the latter from swinging past it it is provided with upper and lower stops 10 and 11, extending horizontally from the post and consisting of projections or arms of bands or collars 12 and 13. The bands or collars, which may be secured to the post in any suitable manner, have the projections located in rear of the center of the post, near the rear face thereof, to pro vide the necessary space for the free ends of the gates at opposite sides of the post.

The lower end of the post 5 is detachably interlocked with a base let, which is embedded in the ground and which is provided with. an opening for'the reception of the lower portion of the post. The base is provided atits upper edges with opposite notches 15, adapted to receive projections or lugs 16, extending from opposite sides of the post. These projections or lugs 16, which are seated in the notches, prevent the post from rotating in the opening or socket of the base.

The base is supported in the ground by upper and lower anchors 17 and 17 which support the post against lateral strains and which prevent the base from being pulled out of the ground. The upper anchor 17 consists of a collar or band encircling the base and provided with arms 18, extending horizontally from opposite sides of the base and arranged in a vertical plane. anchor are adapted to hold the post perfectly steady and render it capable of resisting lateral strains. The lower anchor 17, which is adapted to resist any upward movement of the base, consists of a horizontal disk or plate arranged on the base at the lower end thereof and supported by a suitable stop 14*", which may consist of a horizontalannular flange; but any other suitable form of stop may be provided. The anchor l7 is loosely arranged on the stop 14, and the earth,

The arms of the which in practice is packed around the post,

engages the said anchor, whereby the base is firmly held in the ground.

The invention has the following advantages: The post, which is simple and comparatively inexpensive in construction, is removably mounted in the base and is adapted, when it is desired to provide a passage-way of increased size, to be readily lifted out of the base to clear the entire space between the hinge-posts of the gates, so that a team and a binder may pass through readily. This construction obviates the necessity of employing large and clumsy gates, and it is not necessary to mount a binder upon a truck and carry it through a smaller gateway. The post is common to both gates, which may be opened independently of each other.

Changes in the form, proportion, and minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of this invention.

What I claim is 1. The combination with a pair of gates hinged at their outer ends, of a latch-post interposed between the free ends of the gates and common to both of them, said post being removable and adapted to be detached when it is desired to clear the entire space between the hinge-posts of the gates, substantially as described.

2. The combination with a pair of gates hinged at their outer ends, of a base having a socket, and a latch-postinterposed between the gates, common to both of them and detachably fitted within the socket of the base, whereby it may be readily removed when it is desired to clear the entire space between the hinge-posts of the gate, substantially as described.

3. The combination with a pair of gates hinged at their outer ends, .of a base having a socket and provided with notches, a post interposed between the free ends of the gates, fitting in the socket of the base and provided with projections interlocking with said notches, and collars or bands mounted on the post and provided with projections forming stops to limit the swing of the gates, substantially as described.

4. The combination with a pair of gates hinged at their outer ends, of a base having a socket, an anchor mounted on the base and consisting of a collar or band provided with arms, a latch-post arranged between the free ends of the gates and detachably interlocked with the base, a keeper arranged at one side of the post, collars or bands arranged on the post and provided with projections forming stops to be engaged by the gates, and latches mounted on the gates and engaging the keeper, substantially as described.

5. The combination of a base provided at its lower end with a stop, the lower anchor consisting of a horizontal plate provided with an opening to receive the base and supported upon the said stop, and the upper anchor provided with horizontal arms arranged in vertical planes, substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affiXed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
