SPECIFICATIONformng part of Letters Patent No. 773,385, dated October 25, 1904.
Application filed March 5, 1904..
To (LZ/f '1l/'71,0712I if 72b/ty concern.:
Bc it known that I, WILLIAM H. FUQUA, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Roswell, in the county of Chaves and Territory of New Mexico, have made certain new and useful Improvements in Gates, of which the following is a specification.
My invention is an improvement in gates; and it consists in certain novel constructions and combinations of parts, as will be hereinafter described and claimed.
ln the drawings, Fig'ure l isa top plan view of the gate with the automatic parts arranged for operation bythe tripping devices presently described. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the gate, parts being' broken away and others shown in section. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view illustrating the tripping devices for operation by the wheel of a vehicle. Fig. L is a detail cross-section on about line 4 i of Fig'. 3. Fig. 5 is a detail perspective view showing' the hinge-post and the operating-leverand the latch devices for securing the gate open. Fig. 6 is a top plan view of the hinged end of the gate when open, and Fig. 7 is a perspective view of the gate arranged for 9peration by pull-cords.
The construction of the gate, its latching' devices,and the devices immediately connected Ywith the gate for operating the latter'is the same throughout the several views, and the general construction of the operating devices is best shown in Fig. 7 of the drawings. The gate is supported between the hinge-post A and the latch-post B, the latter having a seat B/ for the latch C at the swing'ing end of the gate D, the latter being' hinged at D to the hinge-post A, as shown in Figs. 2, 6, and 7.
The post A is provided near its upper end with the rods a, extending" on opposite sides of the post in the direction of the road and arranged for engagement by the latches supported in rear of the gate, as presently described.
lhe main or operating lever E is pivoted at E between its ends on the hinge-post A, so that the said lever may swing in a horizontal plane, and the front end of the lever extends over the gate D and is slidably connected therewith, preferably by providing the front Serial No. 196,717. lNo modell end of the lever E with an eye e, which slides along the top CZ of the gate, as best shownin Figs. 2 and 7 of the drawings. By this construction it will be noticed that as the operating-lever E is rocked on its pivot E/ it will operate to swing the gate D in one direction or the other, according to the motion of the lever E. The rear arm E2 of the lever E eX- tends in rear of the pivot E and is depressed at E2 in rear of the post A and has at the lower end of its depressed portion E2 a r`ear wardly-projecting shank e3, to which is pivoted, by a horizontal pivot 6*, the latch-operating lever F, as best shown in Figs. 2 and 7.
The latch-operating' lever F is pivoted between its ends at e* to the rear end of the operating-lever E and is connected at its lower end with the pull devices presently described and at its upper end by a cord G withthe latch C, said cord being' guided at g alongside the operating-lever, as shown in Figs. 6 and 7 so that when the latch-operating lever F is swung from the position shown in full lines, Fig'. 2, to the dotted-line position in said ligure it will operate the cord to release the latch C from engagement with its seat B, so that the gate may be swung' from closed to open position by drawing upon the lower end 'of the latch-operating lever F, as will be understood from Figs. 2 and 7. To the latchoperating lever F, and preferably to the upper end thereof, as shown in Figs. 2, 5, and 7, I secure the latch-bar H, preferably of spring metal and provided at its outer ends with the latch projections HQ having inclined surfaces /L to ride over the rods o, so that the latches H may engage with the rods L and hold the gate open, as will be understood from Figs. 5, 6, and 7 of the drawings.
ln Fig'. l I show the gate arranged for operation by the tripping' devices, which are shown in detail in Fig. 3, while in Fig.'7 I show the pull-cords I, carried from the lower end of the lever F through an eye I on the lever E and thence to opposite sides of the gate and suitably carried on the posts J, so that the pull-cords can" be readily grasped by the operator in order to operate the gate in one direction or the other. It will be noticed the gate always opens away from the operator and can be readily opened as the operator approaches the gate and closed after he has passed through the gate, as desired.
ln the construction shown in Fig. 3 the tripping device includes a spring-supported bar K, guided on pins K, which are encircled by the spring's K2 for supporting' the tripping'- bar K normally in elevated position, and a crank-shaft L. provided with an arm L', connected with the pull-cords I and also having a rounded arm L2 bearing beneath the tripping-bar K, so that the depression of the bar K will rock the crank-shaft L in such manner as to cause its arm L to pull upon the pullc`ord, as desired.
The tripping devices shown in Fig. 3 may be suitably disposed in a culvert across the roadway, so that a vehiclemay be driven over the same in order to depress the trip-bar K to operate in the manner desired.
Having' thus described my invention, what l claim new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. The combination substantially as herein described of the gate, the latch at the swinging end of the gate, the hinge-post, the latchpost, the rods projecting from the hinge-post in the direction of the roadway, the operatinglever pivoted on the hinge-post and having' an arm extending' forwardly over and slidably connected with the gate in advance of the hinge thereof. said operating-lever being' also provided with a rearwardly-projecting arm having a depressed portion in rear of the hinge-post, the latch-operating lever pivoted between its upper and lower ends to said depressed portion of the rear arm of the operating-lever, the latch projections at the upper end of the latch-operating' lever and on opposite sides thereof to engage with the rods on the hinge-post to hold the gate open, connections between the upper end of said latch-operating lever and the gate-latch, the pull-cords and the tripping devices having spring-supported trip-bars and crank-shafts provided with arms connected with the pull-cords and with rounded arms for operation by the tripping-bars substantially as set forth.
2. The combination of the gate, the latch at the swinging' end of the gate, an operatinglever having a front arm swinging' horizontally above the gate and slidably connected with the gate and a rear arm, an approximately vertical latch-operating lever pivoted to the rear end of the operating-lever and rocking in a vertical plane, connections between the upper end of the latch-operating lever and the gate-latch, and pull connections at the lower end of the latch-operating lever substantially as set forth.
