SING GATE-LAT (3H.

Specification 05 Letters Patent. Pettan'tml fang. i, lldt'l Application filed November 16, 1988. Serial No. 62,93.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ELMER WiLLIAM ADAMs, a citizen of the United States, residing at North Topeka, in the county of Shawnee and State oi Kansas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Sliding Gate-Latch; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact descri tion of the invention, such as will enab e others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to an im roved sliding gate latch and the object t ereof is to provide a simply constructed and efiicient device of this character especially adapted for application to a'gatecomposed of metal tubin Wit this and other objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangerhent of parts as will be more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a side elevation of a gatewith this improved latch applied; and Fig. 2 is a longitudinal vertical section of the latch detached. F 3 is a horizontal section "of the latch ta en on line 33 of Fig. 2.

In the embodiment illustrated, a gate 1 is shown composed-of'tubular metal bars and of any desired or ordinary construction. A latch or sliding bolt 2 is housed within a casting 3 having a casting 4 extending'at right angles thereto and U-shaped in cross section. This casting 4 is secured to the upright tubular member at the front of the gate by bolts or any other suitable means. The casting 3 is also preferably U-shaped in cross section and is provided at its outer free end with an integral closure '5 with an aperture therein in which the bolt 2 is mounted. to slide. This bolt is preferably rovided midway its length with an annular shoulder 6 and a coil spring 7 is mounted on said bolt between said shoulder and the rear end or closure 5 of the casting 3 and tends to normally hold said bolt in projected locked position. A transverse a erture is formed in the upright member of t e gate to receive and permit the bolt 2 to slide therethrough and the casting which extends around this member and projects on opposite sides of the aperture serves to reinforce the pipe where it is weakened by the bolt hole. end of the bolt 2 is fastened a chain 8 or other flexible element which is secured at its opposite end to a fixed portion of the gate and is designed to be grasped by the operator and pulled laterally which causes the bolt 2 to move back laterally and become disengaged from the gate post.

From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying draw ings, the construction and operation of the invention will be readily understood .without re uiringa more extended explanation.

arious changes in the form, proportion and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the principle or sacrificing an of the advantages of the invention as (lei ned in the appended claims.

I claim as my invention:

1. In a sliding gate latch, the combination of a T-shaped casting U-shaped in cross section with the head thereof opening out-- wardly and the stern opening at one side,

apertured closure arranged at the free end of said stem, a spring pressed bolt mounted to slide within said stem and project through. the aperture in said closure, and means for connecting said rejected end to a fined ob- 'ect to provide or the.withdrawing of the bolt against the tension of its staring.

2.v In a sliding gate latch, the'cornbination of a casting U-shaped incross section and provided with means for securing it to the upright of a gate, a hollow member extend:

ing at right angles to the rear face of said casting and having its rear end closed and its front end communicating with said casting, a bolt housed within said hollow member and extending through an aperture in the closed end thereof and projecting beyond said casting, and a coil spring mounted on said bolt within said hollow member and adapted to hold the bolt in projected position.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing wit-- nesses.

ELMER WILLIAM ADAMS.
