Application March 25, 19st“, Serial No. 133,063 4 Claims. ‘(ciao-2s) A This invention relates to improvements in each-side of gate l l by means of brackets 24] which swinging gates. are secured to the opposite sides of two oi’ the sets The object of the invention is to provide a. gate adapted to be used across a roadway that will members 2% have resilientlplates 23 which curve of vertical members ill. The free ends 22 of 7, be automatically opened by a vehicle striking inwardly and bear against gate ii, permitting the 5 the gate, and will return automatically to ‘a end 22 of guard member 26 to give; the plates 23 closed and latched position after the vehicle has acting as shock absorbers. passed. Bumng plates 2d are pivotally secured to the A further object of the invention resides in the guard members W by brackets 25 which engage in provision of guard members to protect the gate the downturned ends 2‘? of cranks 2b as best seen structure from injury when being opened by a in Figure 3. The portions 23 of plates 2% are vehicle driving against it. - looped about ends 27! and secured by a/fastening Another object of the invention is to provide 2e. Between the loop portions 28 is a cut out means to be engaged by a vehicle to release the portion 36 to permit brackets 25 to engage over i5 gate latch to allow the gate to swing open when ends 21. The loops 2% are secured fast to ends pressed against.

Referring more particularly to the drawings brackets 32. ' A gate post 3d is adapted to support a keeper 3% having a recess portion 36 to receive the end ' 3i of bolt M. The keeper 3?: is provided with cam surfaces 38 to depress bolt 3i when the gate is being closed so that end it can engage recess 36. A sleeve member 3% is adjustably secured to end 6 M of bolt 3i by adjustment screw til as seen in Figures 3 and 4. The ends d2 of sleeve 3% extend downwardly and are secured together by a nut and bolt $3. The portions s2 are provided with openings M, as seen in Figure 4, to receive the cranks 26 which are adapted to be engaged by openings M. The free ends at ‘of cranks as are bent downwardly to prevent disengagement from the opening M. The bolt 3! has a coil spring tlli mounted 40 thereon which is secured between one of the brackets 32 and a pin M which is mounted in an opening 68 in bolt 3i. The spring Alli normally wherein like reference characters designate like 45 or corresponding parts in the different views, a urges the end 3'! into engagement with recess 36. The bracket it is provided with cam surfaces gate II is adapted to be mounted upon a gate post l2 by means of brackets 13 and i3’ secured M which extend upwardly on each side from a, point opposite to where bracket i3 is secured to the post l2 and which have studs It and it’ projecting upwardly from the brackets l3 and it’ 50 to receive the looped ends l5 of hinge straps lb. to post it.
