Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 10, 1907.
Application filed October 15.1906. Serial No- 339.063. Renewed July 9, 1907 Serial No. 382.932.
To all whom it may concern:
'Be it known that I, EDUARD L. McMi- OHAEL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Arlington, in the county of Carlisle and State of Kentucky, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gates; and I do hereby 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 relates to new and useful improvements in gates and more particularly to that class adapted to be opened or closed by operating levers, and my object is to provide a gate of this class which may be operated manually while seated in a vehicle and from either side of the gate.
A further object is to provide means for controlling the gate latch so that the same will be directed into or released from its keeper at the proper moment.
A still further object is to provide means for securing the operating bars to the gate.
Other objects and advantages will be hereinafter referred to and more particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawin s which are made a part of this applicationfFigure 1 is a perspective view showing the gate in its closed position. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the gate in its opened position. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the mechanism for securing the operating bars to the gate, and, Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the swivel keeper for the outer end of the operating bars.
Referring to the drawings in which similar reference numerals designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, 1 indicates a gate which may be constructed in any preferred manner, one end of which is adapted to be secured to a supporting post 2 by means of hinges 3 while the opposite end thereof is adapted to be directed into enthe bracket is secured to the gate. A brace arm 11 is secured to the bracket 8 at the point of formation of the loop 7, the lower end of said brace arm being likewise provided with an eye 12 through which takes one of the screws 10 by which means the brace arm is secured to the gate. By this construction it will be seen that the bracket will be firmly secured to the gate while the controlling bar 5 will be yieldingly secured thereto. The opposite end of the controlling bar 5 is pivotally secured to an auxiliary bar 13 and substantially at the central portion thereof, as best shown at 14 in Fig. 1, the outer or lower end of the auxiliary bar being pivotally secured in a clip 15, said clip being provided with a depending stem 16 which is swiveled in a socket 17 carried by a post 18. The inner or upper end of the auxiliary bar 13 is provided with a hook 19 which is adapted to engage the controlling bar 5 when the gateis closed thereby holding the controlling bar and auxiliary bar parallel with each other so that the gate will be held in its closed position as long as the bars 5 and 13 are so situ ated.
In order to operate the controlling bar and auxiliary bar to open the gate I have provided a bracket 20 at the upper end of the supporting post 2 upon which are pivotally mounted operating levers 21 and 22, said levers being held in position upon the bracket by means of clevises 23, the operating levers being pivotally secured to said clevises.
The operating levers 21 and 22 are disposed at-an angle to each other, so that one of said levers will extend to one side of the gate while the other leverwill extend to the opposite side of the gate so that the inner ends of the levers will intersect each other. The lever 21 is extended beyond the end of the lever 22 and is secured to the inner end of the auxiliary bar 13 in any preferred manner as by a rope or chain 24 while the end of the lever 22 is yieldingly secured to the lever 21 in any preferred manner as by eye bolts 25 so that the auxiliary bar may be 0 erated by a downward pull upon either of tl ie controlling levers.
In order to facilitate the operation of the levers 21 and 22 and the auxiliary bar 13, I have provided weights 26 and 27 disposed, respectively, on the inner end of the operating lever 21 and the auxiliary bar 13.
The ate is also provided with a latch bar 28 whic is pivotally secured to the gate and has one of its ends extending through a loop 29 and heyondthe end of the gate, that portion of the latch extending beyond the end of the gate being adapted to engage with a keeper 30 carried by the post 4. The opposite end of the latch bar 28 is provided with a weight 31, so that when the latch bar is re leased the weight will swing the bar upon its pivot point and release the protruding end thereof from the keeper 30 so that the gate can be readily swung open.
The latch bar 28 is normally held in engagement with keeper 30 when the ate is closed by means of a spring arm 32 W ich is secured to the inner end of the controlling bar 5 and the upper end thereof extended into engagement with the lower edge of the weighted end of the latch bar 28.
In operation when it is desired to open the gate, one of the controlling cords 33 is grasped and a downward pull given thereon whereupon the weighted end of the lever 21 will be elevated and the auxiliary bar 13 elevated and swung upon its pivot point, the same operation serving to elevate the lower end of the controlling bar 5 and disposing the spring arm 32 out of engagement with the latch bar 28 whereupon the weight 31 will cause the latch bar to swing upon its pivot point and disengage the same from the keeper 30. This operation is performed before the outward pull is directed upon the gate. As
.soon, however, as the auxiliary bar 13 has been elevated sufliciently the gate will be drawn open by the controlling bar 5 and it will be clearly seen that by giving the operating lever a sharp downward pull that the Inomentum of the weight 27 will throw the auxiliary bar 13 beyond the center of gravity and will continue on its outward course until the auxiliary bar 13 engages the ground thereby opening the gate to its fullest capacity.
'l/Vhen it is desired to close the gate a down- 1 ward pull is again directed upon one of the operating cords 33 whereupon the auxiliary bar 13 will be elevated thereby causing the controlling bar 5 to close the gate and it will be seen that when the auxiliary bar 13 has descended until the hook 19 engages the bar 5 the-spring arm 32 will againbe brought into engagement with the weighted end of the latch bar 28 and the outer end thereof seated in the keeper 30 and as the operating levers 2]. and 22 are secured together it will be seen that the above operation can be performed from either side of the gate.
What I claim is:
1. The combination with a gate, a supporting post at one end of said. gate and a keeper post at the opposite end thereof; of a controlling bar, means to yieldingly secure one end of said controlling bar to the gate, an auxiliary bar pivoted to said controlling bar, a clip at the lower end of said auxiliary bar, a hook at the opposite end of said auxiliary bar adapted to engage the controlling bar, a latch bar pivotally secured to said gate, a keeper for said latch bar, a weight on said latch bar, a spring arm secured to said controlling bar, and adapted to engage the weighted end of said latch bar, and hold the same in engagement with said keeper and means upon said supporting post to operate said auxiliary bar whereby the gate will be opened or closed.
2. The combination with a gate; of an auxiliary bar, pivotally secured at its lower end to a clip; an operating bar pivotally secured to the central portion of said auxiliary bar, a bracket secured to said gate, a loop at the central portion of said bracket, a clevis disposed through said loop and secured to the free end of said operating bar, a brace arm for said bracket and means to operate said auxiliary and controlling baiwhereby the gate will be opened or closed.
