Abstract

Gate stay mechanism 10 frictionally holds gate 11 in an open position and restrains its movement. The holding force is sufficiently great to enable test probes to be attached to gate 11 without having to otherwise restrain such gate from movement. Mechanism 10 comprises plate 12 attached to gate 11 and having arcuate slot 13 concentric to the axis of gate hinge 14. Rings 15 of braking material engage opposite sides of plate 12. Bolt 16 and nut 17, acting through spring washer 18, press rings 15 against plate 12 to develop the desired holding and restraining forces. Cylinder 19, bonded to upper ring 15, engages stationary plate 20 to prevent the stay mechanism from moving with gate 11.
