JOHN THOMMAS YAGER, OF BROWNSBORO, KENTUCKY.
FARM-GATE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 727,528, dated May 5, 1 903. Application filed July 26, 1902. Serial No. 117,180. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, JOHN THOMMAS YAGER, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Brownsboro, in the county of Oldham and State of Kentucky, have invented a new and Improved Farm-Gate, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The purpose of the invention is to provide a farm-gate of simple, durable, and economic construction adapted to open from either side and so to hinge the gate to a swing-post and an operating-lever mounted on the post that when the operating-lever is moved upon its pivot the first action of the gate will be to raise the same at its outer or free end, thus disconnecting the gate-latch from its keeper, the next action of the lever being to swing the gate and open it in the desired direction.
Another purpose of the invention is to provide means carried by the operating-lever for preventing the gate when swung closed from passing beyond the closed position and when the gate arrives at the closed position to carry said checking means out of checking action.
The invention consists in the novel construction and combination of the several parts, as will be hereinafter fully set forth, and pointed out in the claims.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the improved farm-gate in closed position. Fig. 2 is an enlarged side elevation, partly in section, of the upper portion of the swing-post and parts carried thereby and the upper end portion of the swing end of the gate; and Fig. 3 is a detail View of a portion of the latch end of the gate and a latch carried by the same.
A represents the swing-post for the gate B, which latter may be of any desired construction, and A represents the keeper-post for the gate, the keeper 1O whereof is horizontally placed and extends beyond opposite sides of the post A, being provided about centrally with the usual recess in which to receive a spring-latch 11. (Shown in Fig. 3.) The latch 11 extends vertically at the free end of the gate and is secured to the upright of said The upper or end in any approved manner.
an aperture in the inner end of the operating-lever 15, as is shown in Figs. 1 and 2. When the outer end of the lever 15 is moved to the right, the gate is moved to the left, and vice versa; but as the gate is hinged to the swing-post A at its bottom and the lever 15 at its upper portion'at the initial movement of the lever 15 the gate is lifted up at its free end to clear the latch 11 of the gate from the keeper with which it may be in engagement, so that during the further movement of the lever the gate is free to swing in the desired direction.
It is possible that the lever 15 may be pulled with such force that under some circumstances in closing the gate the gate may pass the keeper 10 on the keeper-post A without latching. To prevent such an occurrence, a stop-arm 16 is pivoted to the inner end of the operating-lever 15, and a horizontal yoke 18 is attached to the top of the swing-post, the body-section whereof extends beneath the stop-arm and is provided with a central recess 19 in its upper edge.
When the gate is closed, the lever 15 is parallel with the longitudinal axis of the gate and the stop-arm is lifted out of engagement with the yoke 18 by engagement with a segmental projection 17 from the top of the gate. When, however, the gate is opened, the lever 15 is at an angle to the longitudinal axis of the gate, and when the lever is pulled to close the gate and is released the lever will reach its normal position, over the swing-post just prior to the gate closing and the stoparm 16 will drop into the recess 19 of the yoke 18, checking the momentum of the gate and insuring the gate latching when closed, the recess 19 being made sufficiently deep to accomplish such end. As the gate reaches its closing position the projection 17 on the gate will again raise the stop-arm from the yoke 18, leaving the lever free to act in again opening the gate.
The lever 15 is operated by two ropes 20 and 21, attached to its outer end and extending in opposite directions therefrom over pulleys 22, supported by arms 23, secured to the upper ends of standards 24: at each side of the swing-post A, and the handles 25 for the ropes 20 and 21 are in the nature of weights. Latch-posts 26 are located between the swingpost A and the standards 24, provided with keepers 27 to receive the latch 11 of the gate and hold the gate open.
In operation the gate ,being closed when approached to open the same the nearest rope 20 or 21 is pulled upon, whereupon the gate will swing open away from the operator and will lock itself in open position. After the operator has passed through the open gate the other rope is drawn upon and the gate will then swing closed in the manner hereinbet'ore described.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. The combination with agate and a swingpost therefor,of an operating-lever fulcrumed upon the swing-post, a stop-arm pivotally attached to and extending from the inner end of the said operating-lever, a keeper located below the stop-arm, being adaptedto-receive the said stop-arm in one position of the gate and the lever, a hinged connection between the bottom of the gate and the swingpost, a pivotal connection between the upper portion of the gate and the said operatinglever, and a projection from the gate, adapted in the closed position of the gate to carry the stop-arm from engagement withitskeeper', for the purpose described.
2. The combination with a gate and aswingpost therefor,of an operating-lever fulcrumed upon the swing-post, a stop-arm pivotally attached to and extending from the inner end of the said operating-lever, a keeper located below the stop-arm, being adapted to receive the said stop-arm in one position of the gate and lever, a hinged connection between the bottom of the gate and the swing-post, a pivotal connection between the upper portion of the gate and the said operating-lever, a projection from the gate, adapted in the closed position of the gate to carry the stop-arm from engagement with its keeper, standards at opposite sides of the swing-post, pulleys attached to the standards, ropes passed over the said pulleys and attached to the outer end of the operating-lever, and latch-posts located between the standards and the swing-post, for the purpose described.
3. The combination with a swing-post, a gate,an operating-lever pivoted on the swingpost, the gate having hinged connection with the swing-post and lever, a pivoted stop-arm extending from the lever, a yoke attached to the swing-post and extending beneath the stop-arm, which yoke has a recess in its up per edge adapted to receive the stop-arm, and a projection from the gate, adapted for lifting engagement with the stop-arm, for the purpose set forth.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
JOHN THOMMAS YAGER.
