GEORGE ELMER BARNHART, OF DELAND, ILLINOIS.
GATE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 769,784, dated September 13, 1904.
Application filed January 16, 1904. Serial No. 189,349. (No model.)
To all whom it mag/concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE ELMER BARN- HART, a citizen of the United States, residing at Deland, in the county of Piatt and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Gate, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to swinging gates; and it has for its object to greatly simplify the construction of the operating mechanism therefor.
One of the objects of the invention is to provide a simple, durable, and eiiicient operating mechanism for swinging gates which can be controlled from a distance, so that the gate will be capable of being swung open by a person in a vehicle or upon horseback in a convenient manner.
Another object of the invention is to provide a gate-operating mechanism capable of being applied to an ordinary gate without materially altering the construction thereof.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be specifically described hereinafter, it being understood that changes in form, proportion, and minor details of construction may be made Without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the drawings, Figure 1 represents a perspective view of a gate constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the operating device. Fig. 3 represents a plan view of the gate, showing the gate closed in full lines and partially open in dotted lines. Fig. 4 represents a similar view showing the gate open in full lines and partially open in dotted lines. Fig. 5 represents in side elevation a portion of the gate and its operating mechanism.
The reference-numeral 1 designates the gate-post, to which is hinged the swinging gate 2. The lower hinge 3 may be of any desired construction; but the upper hinge is of a peculiar construction to cooperate with the operating mechanism.
The hinge member carried by the gate consists of a pair of parallel arms 5 and 6, connected by a connecting-bar 7, which is fastened to the gate end in any convenient manner.
will operate the gate.
The lower arm 5 is pivoted to a right-angularlydisposed lip 11 on the end of the vertical hinge member 12 carried by the post, so that the gate will be free to swing in either direction. To the terminal of the upper arm 6 is centrally pivoted a lever 10, disposed on substantially a horizontal plane and connected to the sliding latch-bar 14 of the gate by two flexible connections 15 and 16, both terminally connected to the latch-bar and engaging opposite ends of the lever 10. In order to brace the lever, an integral inclined brace-arm 17 is provided, which projects from one end of the lever and is pivoted to the arm 5 in alinement with the pivot of the lever. This arrangement will sufficiently brace the gate and operating-lever so as to take oif all unnecessary strain. When in a state of rest, the lever lies diagonally across the gate-post and the free end or arm thereof extends rearwardly. The ring 19, carried by the end of this arm, is connected to the connection 21, which is attached to the throw-lever 23 on one side of the gate, and the ring 18 on the other end of the lever is attached to the chain 20, which is attached at its other end to the throw-lever 22 on the other side of the gate. These levers 22 and 23 are pivoted to the beam 24:, supported by the gate-post 1 and the latch-post 25.
Hand operating-cords 26 are carried by the levers 22 and 23, so that a pull upon one of the flexible connections or 16, exerted through the levers and connections or 21, When the gate is closed, a pull upon either one of the levers will swing the gate toward the latch-post 25, and when the gate is swung open to its full extent the spring-latch 27 will engage a catch 28 on the post 25, so that the gate will remain open until the latch is released. For convenience I have shown cords as depending from the ends of the levers 22 and 23; but other means of imparting movement thereto may be used, if desired.
When the gate is closed, with the operating mechanism arranged as shown in full lines in Fig. 3, a pull on chain 21 will release the latchbolt 14 and swing the gate a quarter-turn into the position shown in dotted lines in Fig. 3,
when the momentum of the gate will cause it to swing into wide-open position, as shown infull lines in Fig- 4.
The gate being open, as shown in full lines in Fig. 4, to close it a pull is exerted on the chain 20, which will cause the lever 10 to move and release the latch from the catch 28 and swing the gate into dotted-line position, (shown in Fig. 4,) when its momentum will carry it forward into closed position.
I claim as my invention 1. The combination with a gate-post and a swinging gate carried thereby, of a horizontal intermediately-pivoted lever normally set obliquely to the gate, means connecting the opposite ends of the lever with the gate-latch to release the latter, a brace extending from the lever and pivoted in vertical alinement with the pivot of the lever, and operating devices located at opposite sides of the gate and connected to the respective adjacent ends of thelever.
2. The combination with a gate-post and a swinging gate carried thereby, of a horizontal lever loosely fulcrumed at an intermediate point upon the pintle of one of the gatehinges and normally set obliquely to the gate, means connecting the opposite ends of the lever with the gate-latch to release the latter, and operating devices located at opposite sides of the gate and connected to the respective ends of the lever.
3. The combination with a gate-post and a swinging gate carried thereby, of a horizontal lever intermediately pivoted upon the'upper end of the pintle of one of the gate-hinges and normally set obliquely to the gate, a brace extending downwardly from one end of the lever and pivoted to the lower end of the said pintle, means connecting the opposite ends of the lever with the gate-latch to release the latter, and operating devices located at opposite sides of the gate and connected to the respective adjacent ends of the lever.
4:. The combination with a gate-post and a swinging gate, of a stationary hingerfiember carried by the post,-a movable hinge member having spaced upper and lower arms, a pintle piercing the arms and the hinge member on the post, a horizontal lever loosely pivoted at its intermediate point upon the upper end of the pintle and resting upon the upper arm of the movable hinge member, said lever being normally set obliquely to the gate, a brace inclined downwardly and inwardly i rorn the lever with its lower end supported upon the lower arm of the movable hinge member and pierced by the pintle, means connecting the opposite ends of the lever to the gate-latch for releasing the latter, and operating devices located at opposite sides of the gate and connected to the respective adjacent ends of the lever.
5. A gate-operatin g device comprising a sta tionary hinge member having a perforate car, a movable hinge member having spaced up per and lower perforate ears, a pintle forengagement with the perforate ears to pivota'll'y connect the hinge members, a horizontal lever having anintermediate opening for the reception of the upper end of the pintle, a brace extending downwardly from the lever and having its lower end provided with a perforation to loosely receive the pintle, latch connections secured to opposite ends of the lever, and operating connections also secured to the opposite ends of the lever.
In testimony that I claim the fore oing as my own I have hereto affixed my signatu're'in' the presence of two witnesses.
GEORGE Emma BARNHART.
