- ROBERT A. BRUCE, OF MART, TEXAS.-
I GATE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 737,331, dated August 25, 1903.
Application filed May 4, 1903.
To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be itknown that I, ROBERT A. BRUCE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Mart, in the county of McLennan and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gates; and I do 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.
My invention is an improved gate adapted for use as a farm -gate and for other uses; and it consists in the construction and combination of devices hereinafter shown and described.
The object of my invention is to provide a cheap, simple, light, and strong gate and means for opening and closing the same,
which means may be operated at some distance from the gate on either side thereof by a person in a vehicle or on horseback, so that the gate maybe opened and closed without the necessity of dismounting. v
A further object of my invention is to provide improved means for opening and closing a gate, which means will also secure the gate both in open and in closed position.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of a gate and operating means therefor provided with my improvemen'ts,the
gate being shown closed in full lines and open in dotted lines. Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the same. Fig. 3 is a detail sectional view of the same. Fig. 4 is a detail elevation of the oscillating yoke carried by the gate.
In the embodiment of my invention here shown the gate 1 is provided with a'bar 2, which extends from end to end thereof, which bar is provided with reversely-inclined camslots 3 i. u
In practice I propose to make my improved gate of steel; but within the scope of my invention the said gate may be made of any suitable material and may be of any suitable construction, and I'do not limit myself in these particulars. H
The gate closes against a post 5', which is here shown as provided on'one side with a keeper 6 to receive the gate. Disposed at a suitable distance from the post 5 is a post 7 and at a suitable distance therefrom and in line therewith and with the post 5 is a post 8.
Serial No. 156,606. (No model.)
Said posts 7 and8 are each provided on one side with a supporting-roller 9. Said supporting-rollers operate in the cam-slots, with which the gate is provided, and serve to support the gate and coact with the rev'ersely-inclined cam-slots to secure the gate both when in its closed and in its open position.
A yoke 10 is carried by the gate and is pivotally connected thereto at a point between the ends of the gate,-t he pivotal connection between the yoke and the gate enabling the former to oscillate. provided at its ends with antifriction-rollers 11. pivot 13 at its lower end connecting it to a suitable support 14, extends through the yoke between the antifriction-rollers thereof, and the said yoke is thereby adapted to move or travel longitudinally on the said arm.
At the upper end of the post 7 is a cross-bar 15. brace 16, and on the upper side of. the said supporting-arm 15 is mounted a gate-operat ing lever 17. This comprises a pair of reversely-disposed arms 18, the outer'ends of which extend in opposite directions from the gate, a fork 19, which connects the converging ends of the said arms together, and abar 20, which also connects the said arms together at a suitable distance from the saidfork. Said bar 20 is pivotally mounted on the crossarm 15, as by hinges 21, the latter forming the axis or fulcrum for the said lever. A pitman 22 has its upper end pivotally connected to the projecting end of the fork 19 and its An oscillating arm 12, which has a fixed The said yoke, is further The same is here shown as braced by a lower end pivotally'connected to the upper end of the oscillating arm 12.
It will be understood from the foregoing that the arm 12 may be oscillated by means of lever 17 and that as the said arm is thrown in one direction it coacts with the yoke car- 1 ried by the .gate to move the latter longitudinally, and hence the gate may be both opened and closed when approaching and after passing through the same. c It will be understood that owing to the down gate endwise and cause the lever to reassume its normal position with the outer ends of its arms 18 elevated.
I do not desire to limit myself to the precise construction and combination of devices herein shown and described, as it is evident that modifications may be made therein without departing from the spirit of my invention and within the scope of the appended claims.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
l. A sliding gate having 1011gitudinally-disposed reversely-inclined cams, supports on which the cams operate, a lever above the gate, an oscillating arm having its lower end pivotally connected to a fixed support, an oscillating yoke carried by the gate and through which the arm extends, the yoke being longitudinally movable on the said arm, and a pitman connecting the upper end of the arm to the lever, substantially as described.
2. A gate having longitudinally-disposed reversely-inclined cams, in combination with supports on which the cams operate, an oscillating yoke carried by the gate and having antifriction devices spaced apart, and an oscillating arm extending between said antifriction devices and on which the latter travel as the gate is moved endwise by the throw of said arm, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing witnesscs.
