SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 682,593, dated September 10, 1901.
Application filed December 26, 1899. Serial No- 74l,666. (No model.)
To ctZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that 1, DAVID BASHORE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Walla Walla, in the county of Walla \Valla and State of Washington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gates; and
I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention, generally speaking, relates to improvements in gates; but, to be more specific, it is an improvement in that class of gates in which provision is made for the opening and closing of the gate from a point some considerable distance from the same.
It has for one object to produce a gate of this character which will possess all the requisites of strength and durability and which will be especially simple in construction and efficient in operation.
My improved gate accomplishes still another object, and that lies in the fact that the gate resists to a considerable extent any tendency toward accidentally opening when closed and, on the other hand, accidentally closing when open.
The several parts are so arranged as to be readily assembled, not liable to derangement, positive in their action, and free from the constant and destructive strain on the supporting-posts, which latter is a feature evident in the majority of this class of devices.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear in the following description and the novel features thereof will be particularly pointed out in the claim.
The objects of my invention I am enabled to accomplish by the means illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of the complete device, showing the gate in a closed position. Fig. 2 is an elevation of the operating-lever. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the back portion of the gate, representing the position of the various parts as the gate is onehalf open.
I will now set forth the general construction of the gate and subsequently describe the operation of the same, referring to the above views by reference characters.
As a suitable standard to which the main portions of the device are connected I have provided the vertical post 1, while directly across the roadway is the jamb-post 2, which is rabbeted out, as shown in Fig. 1, and is provided with the latch-finger 3, the latter being engaged by the pivoted latcha'.
Secured to the top and bottom of the standard 1 in the positions usually occupied by ordinary hinges are the vertical pintle-rods 4 4. In corresponding positions to the rods 14 and secured to the vertical post 5 of the gate A are the hinge-eyes 6 6, which loosely encircle the rods 4 4 and are provided with grooved bearing-wheels a. Hung in bearings at the lower back portion of the gate A and having its extremities bent at right angles to form the arms I) c is the short horizontal'shaft 7.
Pivoted in a diagonal slot across the upper extremity of the post 1 is the lever 8, the inner extremity of which is connected to the arm a by ne'ansof the headed rod 9, While the short arm I) of the shaft 7 is connected to a staple on the stationary post 10 by means of the bar 11.
Pivoted to a projecting member 12, at the lower extremity of the post 1, is the vertical operating-lever 13, which is provided near its lower end with the cross-bar 14, the latter being braced firmly by means of the bracing-rods d. The opposite extremities of this cross-bar 14 are connected to the outer extremity-of the lever 8 by means of the headed rods e 6.
Having thus gone into the general construction of my invention, I will now explain its operation, assuming that the gate is in a closed position.
As the upper extremity of the operatinglever 13 is drawn in either direction by means of a suitable rope, rod, or other means 15 the outer extremity of the pivoted lever 8 is I drawn downward, while its opposite end moves upward and carries with it the headed rod 9, which of course draws the arm a into a vertical position and carries the gate upward and away from the latch-finger 3. Now as this gate is drawn upward the presence of the bar 11 will draw the gate directly over the post 10, which in that position is exactly one-half open. Were it not for the inertia in this heavy moving gate the latter would rel advantages of the same will, itis thought, be
main in this partly-open position; but it is manifest that as the gate swings open and slightly passes this position over the post 10 it will fall byits own weight and in so doing be pushed over by the bar 11 into a full-open position. Now the closing of the gate is identical in operation to that above set forth, for as the operating-lever 13 is again drawn in either direction the gate will be elevated, thrown past the diagonal post 10, and swing as it falls into a complete closed position. It is further manifest that the gate when either closed or full open will resist to a considerable extent the force of the wind or other cause tending to accidentally move it, as its weight is ample to keep it in the position desired. When the gate is in a closed position, the entire weight is removed from the vertical post and rests on a short projecting post 16 and bottom of the rabbeted post 2. The grooved rollers a guide the gate as it is drawn vertically upward on the vertical rods 4 4'. In order to permitof the slight twisting movement of the bar 11 as the gate moves in either direction, I have provided the swivel 18.
The construction and arrangement of the several parts of my improved gate being thus made known, the operation and the many readily understood.
I am aware that changes in the form and proportion of parts of the devices herein shown as an embodiment of my invention can be made without departing from the spirit or sacrificing the advantages thereof, and I therefore reserve the right to make such changes and alterations and substitutions as fairly fall within the scope of my invention.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
In combination with a gate, a stationary post to which said gate is hinged, a bent lever journaled in said gate and secured to a stationary post, said latter post being in the path of said gate, a secondary lever pivoted in said former post and connected to-said bent lever and to suitable operative means, the action of said bent lever being such as to elevate and draw said gate toward said secondary post, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I atfix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
