GATE
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 8, 1907.
Application filed May 27. 1907. Serial No. 375.924.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, JOHN PIEPERGERnEs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Stewartsville, in the county of Dekalb and State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Im rovements in Gates; and I do declare the f0 lowing 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.
This invention relates to improvements in gates.
The object of the invention is to provide a gate adapted to be opened and closed by a person approaching either side without the necessity of alighting from a horse or vehicle.
- A further object is to provide a gate of this character which will be simple, strong, and durable in construction, eflicient and reliable in operation, and having means whereby the operating parts of the same are protected from the weather.
With these objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be more fully described and particularly pointed out in the claims appended.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a side view of one side of the gate, showing the same in closed position; Fig. 2 is a similar view, showing the gate open; Fig. 3 is a side view of the opposite side of the gate, showing the latter in closed position; and Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view on the line 44 of Fig. 1.
Referring more particularly to the drawings, 1 denotes the main supporting post, which is arranged at one side of the road. On the opposite side of the road, in line with the post 1, is arranged a post 2, against which the gate is held when in closed position. On the op osite side of the main post 1 at a suitable dlstance therefrom is arranged a post 3, with which the gate is engaged when in open osition. Pivotally mounted on one side 0 the main post, 1, adjacent to its upper end, is a track supporting and protecting bar, 4, said bar being inclined upward from its outer end toward its center, as shown. The outer end of the bar 4 adjacent to the post 2 is provided with a hook 5 which is adapted to be engaged with an eye or keeper, 6, on the upper end of the post 2, whereby said track supporting bar 4 is normally held in a closed or operative position. Secured to the lower side of the bar, 4, at its opposite ends, is a gate supporting track 7, said track being inclined from its outer ends toward the center and substantially parallel to the bar 4 and spaced therefrom to a suitable distance.
The central portion of the track bar 7 is supported and braced by a depending hanger 8, which is secured to the underside of the bar 4.
Connected at its opposite ends to the post 1 and the post 3 is a track supporting and protecting bar 9, said bar 9 being inclined upward from its opposite ends toward the center, as shown. Secured to the underside of the bar 9 and spaced at a suitable distance therefrom, is a second gate supporting track 10, said track being inclined from its ends toward the center, where it is supported and braced by a hanger, 12.
Slidably supported on the tracks 7 and 10 is a gate 13, said gate being here shown as provided with an upwardly projecting outer post, 14, on the upper end of which is secured a bearing bracket 15, in which is journaleda supporting pulley, 16, adapted to engage and travel on track 7. The opposite end of the gate 13 is provided with a post 17, on the upper end of which is arranged a bracket 18, in which is journaled a gate supporting pulley 19, adapted to engage and travel on the track 10 to support the inner end of the gate in an open or closed position.
Arranged along the side of the road at a suitable distance from the main post 1 and on opposite sides of the same are pivot posts, 20, on which, adjacent to their upper ends, are pivotally mounted operating levers, 21 and 22, the inner ends of which are disposed one above the other, and are pivotally connected together by plates, 23. The inner ends of the levers 21 and 22 are connected at one side of the post, 1, over the bar 9; and the lever 22, which passes the post 1, is held in position by a guide bar, 24, arranged on the post 1. Loosely connected to the underside of the inner end of the lever 22 is the upper end of an operating rod 25, the lower end of which is pivotally connected with the lower end of an operating bar, 26, which is pivoted tothe center of the adjacent side of the gate, as shown. The upper end of the operating bar 26 projects above the gate and is bent at right angles thereto, and connected to a stop chain,27,1the opposite end of which is connected to the post 1, as shown. When the gate 13 is-in a closed position,the bar 26 is disposed at an angle with its upper end projecting toward the post 1, so that when the operating levers 21 and 22, are pulled down on either side of the gate, the inner ends of said levers will be raised and the operating rod connected thereto will draw upon the operating bar 26, which, owing to its position, will lift the gate and pull the same laterally until the pulleys on the upper ends of the post of the gate are brought past the inclined central portion of the tracks, after which the weight of the gate will cause the pulleys to travel down the opposite inclined portion of the tracks and carry the gate to an open position at one side of the road, as shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings. As the gate is thus swung to anopen position, the operating rod 25 will swing the lower end of the bar 26 in the opposite direction, thereby reversing the position of said bar, so that when the operating lever on the other side of the gate is pulled down, the gate will be raised and drawn back to a closed position in the same manner in which it is opened.
On the side of the gate adjacent to the supporting post is arranged a longitudinally disposed bar or track, 28, which is adapted to engage an elongated vertically disposed roller, 29, which is journaled in a suitable bracket on the side of the post 1, and provides a bearing with which the gate is engaged when being moved to its open or closed position, thus preventing the gate from binding against the post 1. Arranged oppositely to the post 1 and the post 2, are short guide posts, 30 and 31, the post 30 serving to hold the gate and guide the same in its opening and closing movement, while the post 31 serves to hold the gate in closed position against the post 2. The post 2 is provided adjacent to its upper end with an inwardly projecting stop having a beveled inner end adapted to be engaged by the gate when brought to a closed position to guide the same into engagement with the side of the post, and also to provide means for preventing the gate from being pushed inwardly should the same not be entirely closed against the post 2.
By hingedly mounting the inner end of the track supporting and protecting bar 4 on the post 1, said bar may be swung u wardly to permit the passage of high vehic es through the gate, the bar 4 being secured in its lowered or normal position by means of the hook 5, which engages the keeper 6 on the post 2.
When the bar 4 is raised the track 7 will also be moved up therewith. This upward movement f of the track 7 willelevate the forward end of the gate to a slight extent, owing to the engagement therewith of the pulley 16 on the upper end of the outer gate post, 14.
The guide bar 24 on the post 1 which holds the lever 22 in place, is bent inwardly at its upper portion to form a shoulder 24?" with which the lever 22 will be engaged and held against operation should an attempt be made to open the gate in any other manner than by the means of the levers, thereby preventingthe opening of the gate by stock. Should any attempt be made to push the gate open, the operating bar 26 will cause the operating rod 25 to forcethe lever 22 back, thus causing the same to engage the shoulder 24" in the guide bar'24 which will prevent said lever from rising and thereby hold the gate in closed osition.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters-Patent, is:
1. In a gate of the character described, the combination with a main and side supporting post, gate supporting tracks arranged on and secured to said supporting posts and extending on opposite sides of the main supporting end posts, sulpporting pulleys journaled on the upper en s of said posts and ada ted to be engaged with said supporting trac lever posts arranged along one side of the road and opposite sides of said main supporting posts, operating levers pivoted on said lever posts, means to loosely connect the inner ends of said. levers together, an operating bar pivotally mounted on said. gate, an operating .posts, a gate having upwardly projecting.
rod to connect the lower end of said bar with the inner ends of said levers, a stop chain to connect the upper end of said bar with said main supporting post, means to guide said gate in its open and closing movements, and means to prevent the same from binding against said track supporting posts, substantially as described.
2. In a gate of the character described, the combination with a main and side supporting posts, of gate supporting tracks arranged on said posts and extending in each direction on opposite sides of said main supporting post, said tracks being inclined from their outer ends toward their center, means to protect and cover said tracks, a gate having upwardly projecting end osts, bearing brackets on t e upper ends oi said osts, supporting pulleys journaled in sai brackets and adapted to be engaged with said brackets, pivotally mounted operating levers extending along the side of the road at suitable distances on each side of said main supporting post, an operating mechanism connected with said levers and with the gate, whereby the latter is raised and drawn toward the center of said tracks until the supporting pulleys thereon pass the inclined center of the tracks, whereby the weight of the gate will cause the same to continue to open or close, guide posts arranged opposite said main supporting post and the closing post of the gate to guide and hold said gate in position, a bearing track on one side of said gate, a bearing roller journaled on said main supporting post and adapted to be engaged by said track, and an inclined guiding and gate holding block arranged on the closing posts of the gate, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
