EDWIN A. LAMPITT, OF PEKIN, ILLINOIS.
END-GATE FOR WAGONS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 750,376, dated January 26, 1904.
Application filed October 31, 1903.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EDWIN A. LAMPITT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Pekin,
' in the county of Tazewell and State of Illinois,
have invented certain new and useful Improvements in End-Gates for Wagons; and I do 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, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in end-gates for wagons; and the object of the invention is to produce an endgate which may be readily detached from the wagon-box when held in a horizontal position and comprises a gate having headed studs on the edges thereof which are adapted to engage socket members in the sides of the wagon-box and be securely held in place when the gate-is closed.
My invention consists, further, in various details of construction and in combinations of parts,which will be hereinafter fully described and then specifically defined in the appended claim.
My invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, which, with the letters of reference marked thereon, form a part of this application, and in which-- Figure 1 is a perspective view of my invention, showing the various parts assembled and a gate as locked to the end of the box. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the upper gate in position to be insertedin place upon the box and the lower gate in place and parts being broken away to better illustrate features of the invention. Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional View through one pair of retainers or studs, showing the edges of the gates in section. Fig. 4 is a side view with the heads of the studs removed, the upper gate being shown as in closed relation and the under gate in position to be removed from the box of a wagon. Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional View taken through one of the studs and socket members. Fig. 6 is a detail view in perspective of one of the studs and plate carrying the same, and Fig. 7
Serial No. 179,825. (No model.)
is adetail view of a metallic lining of the socket member.
Reference now being had to the details of the drawings by letter, A designates a wagonbox of ordinary construction having recessed portions A along the marginal edges of the sides of the box at the rear thereof, and each of said recesses, which are preferably circular in outline, has a metallic lining B, a detail view of which is shown in Fig. 7 of the drawings. This lining, it will be observed, has circular flanges which are adapted to engage the opposite faces of the sides of a wagon-box, with a recess leading through into the annular space, and by the use of such lining wear upon the walls of the recess in the side-boards isprevented.
In the drawings I have shown a double endgate,although asingle one may be employed, if desired. The end-gates are designated byletters C and C, and secured to the ends of each gate is an angle-iron D, one end of each iron terminating in a circular outlined flanged portion D, as shown clearly in Figs. 2 and 6 of the drawings. An integral rectangular-shaped lug or projection 45 projects from the face of each angle iron D adjacent to the flanged portion D, and said lug (Z has an integral cap or head d. Fastened to the outer face of each end-gate is a handle F and a latch G, held to the end-gate by suitable straps H, the upper of said latches adapted to engage a loop K upon the lower gate, while the latch on the lower gate is adapted to engage a socket-plate L, fastened in the bottom of the box. As will be observed in the drawings, each end-gate has an angle-plate with headed lug integral with an angle-plate secured to the edge of the gate and adapted to be inserted in the socket giembers in the rear edges of the side of the The application of my improved end-gates to the wagon-box will be readily understood, it only being necessary to hold the gate in a horizontal position while the flattened portions of the lugs (Z are inserted in the contracted openings leading to said socket members, after which the shank portions or lugs d may be inserted into the socket members, and the inner marginal wall of each socket member Will serve as a bearing for the lug d, the latter being allowed to turn freely therein in order that the gates may assume vertical positions, and the gates will be securely held in place by means of the latches described.
While I have shown a particular construction of apparatus embodying the features of myinvention, it Will be understood that I may make alterations in the detailed construction of the same Without in any Way departing from the spirit of the invention.
Having thus fully described my invention, WhatI claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
An end-gate for a Wagon comprising in combination with a box having socket members mounted in recesses in the ends of the sides WVitnesses:
