SPEGIFIGATION forming part Of Letters Patent No. 717,705, dated January 6, 1903.
duplication filed October 24, 1902. herial No. 123,627. (No model.)
To all whont it may concern:
Be it known that 1, PETER Aeusrnv MCCAR- VILLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Clare, in the county of W'ebster and State of Iowa, have invented anew and useful Gate, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to improvements in gates.
The object of the present invention is to improve the construction of tilting gates, more especially the means for opening and closing the same, and to provide simple and inexpensive ones capable of enabling the gate to be readily operated at a distance from either side of it.
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. Fig. 2 is a horizontal sectional view of the latch-post,illustrating the arrangement of the latch-cord.
Like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts in both figures of the drawings.
.1 designates a tilting gate consisting, preferably, of a series of rails or bars 2 and connecting-bars 3 and 4, preferably arranged in pairs at the front and back of the gate. The front bars 3, which are pivoted to the longitudinal bars or rails 2, are arranged in an inclined position when the gate is closed, and the rear end bars eare inclined, being secured to a suitable support, preferably consisting of an upright 5 and a pair of sills 6. The lower ends of the bars 4 are secured between the sills, and the upper ends of the said bars 4 are pillowed against the upright and are snitably secured to the same, whereby the end bars of the gate also serve as a suitable support for the upright.
The top of the gate is connected to a cable '7 or other flexible connection, which extends upward and rearward to a pulley-8 and'which is connected at its rear end ,to averticallymovable weight 9. The pulley is arranged at the top of the upright, which is also preferably provided with a rearwardly-extendin g arm 10, having a pulley 11 and adapted to hold the weight clear of the upright, so that the said weight will not be retarded in its vertical movement.
The gate is normally held in its closed position by means of a resilient latch 12, secured at its upper portion to a latch-post 13 and having its lower end arranged to engage the front of the gate at the bottom thereof. When the latch is disengaged from the gate by the means hereinafter described, the weight will automatically open the gate. The upper end of the latch is provided with a lug or enlargement 14, which effects the body portion of the latch from the post 13, and the said latch is drawn outward by a rope or cable 15 to release the gate. The ropes or cables 15, which extend from the latch-post in opposite directions, are, arranged on suitable guides 16015 the same, and they are connected at their outer ends with trips 17, consisting of levers pivotally mounted between bars or sills 18,
spaced apart and having their outer ends recessed or cut away at their inner faces to form a flaring mouth or entrance for guiding a wheel to the trip. Then a wheel passes over the trip 17, the rope or cable connected therewith is pulled and the latch is withdrawn from engagement with the gate, which is automatically opened by the weight.
The gate is closed by means of a pair of levers 19, located at opposite sides of the gate and provided with arms 20, arranged to be engaged by a vehicle wheel. The levers, which are fulcrumed on suitable supports 21, are connected with the gate by ropes or cables 22, which pass beneath the guide-pulleys 23,
it opens automatically when the latch is operated by the trip-lever, and that it is readily closed by the weight of a vehicle. I
Any suitable means may be provided, if desired, for enabling the gate to be closed by hand at a distance from either side of it to enable it to be operated by a person on horseback. The weight is just sufficient to open the gate, and the gate is adapted to be readily closed by hand, as it will require but little force to lift the Weight.
Instead of connecting the Weight for automatically opening the gate with the latter by means of a rope, a lever or any other means may be employed for this purpose, and I desire it to be understood that various 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.
What is claimed is- 1. The combination of an upright, atilting gate composed of rails and front and rear connecting-bars, the rear connecting-bar being inclined and forming a brace for the upright, a flexible connection attached to the gate and guided on the upright and provided with a weight, a latch for holding the gate closed, and means for releasing the gate, substantially as described.
2. The combination of a tiltinggate, a latchpost provided with a latch engaging the gate, bars spaced apart and forming a wheel-guide, a lever mounted between the bars and connected with the latch, and means for automatically opening the gate when the same is released, substantially as described.
3. The combination of a tiltinggate, a latch engaging the gate for holding the same closed, means for automatically opening the gate when the same is released, wheel-guides located at opposite sides of the gate, trip-levers mounted in the wheel-guides and connected with the latch, and levers connected with the gate and arranged to be swung upward by the opening of the gate and adapted to be depressed for closing the gate, 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.
PETER AGUSTIN MCCAKVILLE.
