JESSE H. MAHAN, OF WEST LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY.
GATE.
SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 634,010, dated October 3, 1899.
Application filed May 23, 1899.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, JESSE H. MAHAN, a citi out dismounting from a horseor leaving a vehicle.
A further object of the invention is to provide a balance-gate which will not sag and which will not be materially affected by the wind.
Another object of the invention is to provide a gate of this character in which the operating mechanism will be positive and reliable and capable of firmly locking the gate in its open and closed positions, thereby obviating the necessity of employing latches for such purpose. Q I i The invention consists in the construction and novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and pointed out in the claims hereto appended.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a gate constructed in accordance with this invention and shown'partly open. Fig; 2 is a side elevation, partly'in' section, the gate being open. Fig. 3 is an enlarged detail per spective View of the weighted lever and its connection with the gate. Fig. 4 is a sectional view of the same.
Like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawings.
1 designates a swinging gate preferably composed of a rectangular frame and vertical and longitudinal wires, and it is supported by inclined bracing-wireswhich cross each other,
as shown; but any other arrangement may be employed, it being desired to provide an open work gate which willbe practicallyunafiected by the wind. The'gate is providedbetween its ends with upper and lower pintles 2 and 3, and its inner portion 4 is'weighted to bal- $erialNo."717,9Z7. (llo model.)
ance the outer or front portion, so that the latter will not sag and prevent the operating mechanism hereinafter described from opening and closing it. The lower pintle 3 is stepped in a suitablebearing of a short post t, and the upper pintle 2 is arranged in a bearing of a supporting-frame which comprises uprights or posts 5 and 6 and a horizontal bar '7, secured to the upper ends of the uprights or posts 5 and 6 and projecting therefrom to provide an overhanging arm which extends over the inner or rear portion ofthe gate. The uprights'or posts 6, which are located in rear of the gate, are arranged in alinement therewith when the same is closed.
The gate isprovided at its rearor in'nerend with a vertical rod 8, forming a guidean'd oifset from the gate by upper and lower arms 9, formed by bending the terminals of the rod at right -angles and embedding them in the rear or inner end bar of the gate, and the said arms may be secured to such end bar by any suitable means. The vertical guide receives a vertically-movable slide 10, consisting of a sleeve and a projecting flange or plate 11, to which is connected a weighted l'ever ll and .the operating mechanism hereinafter described, which is adapted to raise the slide,
whereby the gate is swung on its hinges or pintles. The weighted lever, which is normally arranged at an inclination, is provided at its lower end with an eye 12 and is hinged by a staple 13 to a short post 14, located in rear of the gate and at one side thereof.
The upper end of the inclined weighted lever is pivotally connected to the slide, preferably by being bifurcated, as shown at 14 the sides of the bifurcation being perforated for the reception of a-pivot 15 5 but the upper end of the lever 11 may be provided with an eye and be linked into a perforation of a slide, or any other suitable hinge connection may be employed.
The weighted lever serves as a brace tohold the gate in its open and closed positions, and the slide cannot be raised bypres'sure onthe gate, so that the weight of. the lever is effective as a latch. It is adaptedt'o'assist incounterbalancing the front portion of the gate,and it is threaded between its ends at 16 to provide means for adjusting a weight 17, which is preferably in the form of a ball and which is provided with a threaded opening. By adjusting the weight backward and forward the pressure exerted by the lever on the gate may be regulated, as will be readily understood. In-
stead, however, of adjusting the Weight 17 by means of threads, as illustrated in the accompanying drawings, a wedge or any other suitable fastening device may be provided.
The slide is connected with the lower end of a chain 18, which is provided at its upper portion with two branches 19 and 20, connected to the inner ends of levers 21 and 22, and the latter, which are fulcrumed at opposite sides of the gate on suitable uprights or supports 22 and 23, are provided at their outer ends with depending handles 24 to enable them to be readily grasped. As the gate opens in one direction only, the lever 22 is longer than the other lever 21, so that the gate may be operated at a sufficient distance to prevent it from striking a horse or a vehicle. The gate when closed abuts against a latch-post, which is provided with a suitable stop, preferably consisting of a strip 24-, secured to the inner face of the post The upper ends of the uprights or supports 22 and 23 are preferably bifurcated, as shown, and the handles 24 may be of any desired construction.
The invention has the following advantages:- The gate, which is simple and comparatively inexpensive in construction, is adapted to be readily opened and closed at a distance from it, and the operating mechanism, or, rather, the weighted lever which swings the gatewhen lifted, looks it in its open andclosed positions. The upward movement of the weighted lever swings the gate and the momentum thereof carries it beyond the cen ter, and as soon as it passes the center the weighted lever completes the movement. The adjustable weight enables the pressure eX-. erted by the lever on the gate to be readily regulated.
Changes in the form, proportion, size, and
the minor details of construction within the scope of the appended claims may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of this invention.
lVhat is claimed isl. The combination with a swinging gate hung between its ends, of a weighted lever fulcrumed at one end and having its other end slidingly connected with the inner end of the gate and adapted to move upward and outward thereon, and operating mechanism connected with the weighted lever for lifting the same, substantially as described.
2. The combination of a swinging gate hung between its ends and provided at its inner end with a vertical guide, an inclined lever fulcrunied at its lower end and having its upper end slidingly connected with the guide, and
adapted to lift the lever, substantially as described. A
3. The combination of a swinging gate provided with a vertical guide, a slide mounted on the guide and adapted to move upward and downward thereon, an inclined lever fulcrumed at its lower end and having its upper end connected with the slide, and operating mechanism for raising the slide, substantially as described.
4. The combination of a swinging gate provided with a vertical guide, a slide mounted on the guide an d adapted to move upward and downward, an inclined lever fulcrumed at its lower end and connected at its upper end with the slide, an adjustable weight mounted on the inclined lever, and operating-levers connected with the slide, 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.
