Abstract

A dress-hanger, particularly meant for a diving outfit, such as a diving suit and diving outfit pieces, which comprises at least one supporting element or jacket-carrying element (1) consisting of two arms (1', 1''), and which in the median top portion thereof is formed with an intermediately located dress-hanger-suspending hook member (2), the said arms (1', 1'') extending outwardly from both side ends of the dress-hanger hook member (2). The jacket-carrying element (1) has both of its arms (1', 1'') provided with an overlying jacket-bearing member, whereby any deformation is avoided of the parts resting thereon of a jacket or a diving suit. This jacket-bearing member consists of two parts (5, 5') which are transversely enlarged relative to the longitudinal extent of the jacket-carrying element (1), and have an upwardly roundish cross-sectional shape. These parts (5, 5') are so formed that also a sleeveless jacket can be borne by its shoulders thereby. The dress-hanger is also formed with a lower supporting element, or trousers-carrying bar (3). Further immovable or removable means (14, 8, 11), meant for carrying pieces of a diving outfit, such as annular seals, pressure-reducing valves (R) of air-delivery devices for air-breathing apparatus, hanger members, are provided in the dress-hanger according to the invention.

Description

  • The invention relates to a dress-hanger, particularly meant for a diving suit, which comprises at least one supporting element, so-called jacket-carrying element, and in the median top region thereof is provided with an intermediately located dress-hanger-suspending hook member.
  • The object of the invention is to provide a dress-hanger as disclosed above, which should be of a sufficiently strong, easy, and low-cost construction, and should prevent any deformation of a diving suit at the parts thereof resting on the dress-hanger.
  • A further object of the invention is to provide a dress-hanger on which not only a diving suit, but also other pieces of a diving outfit may be accomodated, whereby the whole diving outfit will occupy a lesser space and will be more easily carried, while a better preservation of the diving outfit is furthermore ensured.
  • The invention attains these objects by the provision of a dress-hanger as disclosed at the outset, wherein the jacket-carrying element consists of two arms extending outwardly from both side ends of the intermediately located dress-hanger hook member. These arms are inclined downwardly relative to the intermediately located dress-hanger hook member. On their upper side the downwardly inclined arms of the jacket-carrying element are each formed with an overlying, respective member for a jacket or the like to be borne by its shoulders. These jacket-bearing members are transversely enlarged relative to the longitudinal extent of the jacket-carrying element and have an upwardly roundish cross-sectional shape, so that a roundish upper surface is formed for the jacket shoulders,
  • In order that either a sleeved or a sleeveless jacket may be borne by its shoulders by the transversely enlarged jacket-bearing members on both downwardly inclined arms of the jacket-carrying element, these jacket-bearing members are advantageously made in two parts.
  • The one internal parts of the jacket-bearing members are adjacent to the respective side end of the intermediately located dress-hanger hook member, and extend therefrom to about half-way of the respective, downwardly inclined arm of the jacket-carrying element, which is integrally formed with the dress-hanger hook member. These internal parts are solidary and preferably made of one piece with the respective arm of the jacket-carrying element.
  • The other external parts of the jacket-bearing members are both overhangingly associated with the outward end section of the respective, underlying arm of the jacket-carrying element. The external parts of the jacket-bearing members are each carried by an arcuate, convex elastic tongue which by its arcuate end portion is connected with the outer end of the respective, downwardly inclined arm, and has its closed end located at its outward end. Thus, hanger portions are formed between the overlying external parts of the jacket-bearing members and the underlying outward end sections of the downwardly inclined arms of the jacket-carrying element. Owing to the provision of the elastic tongues, these external parts are elastically liftable from the respective arm and are lowerable down thereon. Both external parts have their inward end beveled and inclined downward, and are spaced apart from the respective, also downwardly inclined, opposite internal part of the jacket-bearing members, so that a slot is formed therebetween. Through this slot a sleeveless jacket can be inserted by its shoulders into either of the hanger portions, by lifting up the external parts of the jacket-bearing members. Whereas, under the weight of a sleeved jacket being hung by its shoulders on the jacket-bearing members, the external parts of the jacket-bearing members are lowered down, and two continuous jacket-bearing members are thus formed with the internal parts thereof.
  • The dress-hanger of the invention is also formed with a supporting lower element, so-called trousers-carrying bar, which by the ends thereof is connected with the outer ends of the downwardly inclined arms of the jacket-carrying element.
  • According to a further feature of the invention, the dress-hanger is provided with immovable means for holding up at least one, and preferably two pressure-reducing valves of delivery devices for air-breathing apparatus. The dress-hanger is also provided with means for annular seals to be held thereon, and with removable means for further pressure-reducing valves of delivery devices for air-breathing apparatus and/or for other pieces of a diving outfit to be carried thereby.
  • The dress-hanger according to the invention can be made in a simple manner from plastics material, and it is formed with immovable and removable stiffening members.
  • Owing to the provision of the disclosed jacket-carrying element and trousers-carrying bar, any detrimental deformation of a diving suit resulting from its own weight, is effectively prevented by the dress-hanger according to the invention. Moreover, this dress-hanger is so made that the various means for holding pressure-reducing valves of delivery devices for air-breathing apparatus and other pieces of a diving outfit can be accomodated therein. Thus, the whole diving outfit including a diving suit, can be collected on one single element, that is, on the dress-hanger of the invention. A diving outfit is therefore more easily transported and stored, and a possible loss of any requisite piece of a diving outfit is then avoided.
  • The dress-hanger of the invention is framed in such a particular menner that it is sufficiently strong and easily made at a low cost.
  • Further features of the invention form the object of the dependent claims.
  • The features of the invention and the advantages arising therefrom will more clearly appear from the following specification of the preferred embodiments thereof, which are shown in the accompanying drawings, in which:
    • Figure 1 is a view showing one of the faces of a dress-hanger according to the invention.
    • Figure 2 shows a top view of the dress-hanger according to Figure 1.
    • Figure 3 shows a perspective detail view in an enlarged scale of one of the removable means for outfit pieces to be carried thereby.
    • Figure 4 shows a cross-sectional view of the supporting lower element, so-called trousers-carrying bar, with a hanger member being removably fitted thereon.
    • Figure 5 shows a modified embodiment of the dress-hanger as viewed in Figure 1.
    • Figure 6 shows a modified embodiment of the removable means for outfit pieces to be carried thereby, as viewed in Figure 3.
  • In Figure 1 there is shown a dress-hanger according to the invention, which consists of a substantially triangular frame with its isosceles sides forming both arms 1', 1'' of a supporting upper element, so-called jacket-carrying element 1, and with its base forming a lower supporting element, so-called trousers-carrying bar 3.
  • A dress-hanger-suspending hook member 2 is integrally formed in the median top portion of the dress-hanger, between the arms 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1, which are downwardly inclined relative to the intermediately located dress-hanger hook member 2.
  • The downwardly inclined arms 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1 extend outwardly from both side ends of the intermediately located dress-hanger hook member 2. The outer ends of the downwardly inclined arms 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1 are connected to the ends of the trousers-carrying bar 3. On their upper side the said arms 1', 1'' are each formed with a respective member for a jacket or the like to be borne by its shoulders. The jacket-bearing members are transversely enlarged relative to the longitudinal extent of the jacket-carrying element and have an upwardly roundish cross-sectional shape so that a roundish upper surface is provided for the jacket shoulders.
  • In order that either a sleeved or a sleeveless jacket may be borne by its shoulders by the transversely enlarged jacket-bearing members on both downwardly inclined arms 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1, these jacket-bearing members are advantageously made in two parts 5, 5'.
  • The one internal parts 5 of the jacket-bearing members are adjacent to the respective side end of the intermediately located dress-hanger hook member 2, and extend therefrom to about half-way of the respective, downwardly inclined arm 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1, which is integrally formed with the dress-hanger hook member 2. These internal parts 5, 5' are solidary to, and preferably made of one piece with the respective arm 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1.
  • The other external parts 5' of the jacket-bearing members are both overhangingly associated with the respective outward end section of the underlying arms 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1. The external parts 5', of the jacket-bearing members are each carried by an arcuate, convex elastic tongue 4 which by its arcuate end portion is connected with the outer end of the respective arm 1', 1'', and has its closed end located at its outward end. Thus, hanger portions are formed between the overlying external parts 5' of the jacket-bearing members and the underlying outward end sections of the arms 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1. Owing to the provision of the elastic tongues 4, these external parts 5', are elastically liftable from the respective arm 1', 1'' and are lowerable down thereon. Both external parts 5', have their inward end beveled and inclined downward, and are spaced apart from the respective, also downwardly inclined, opposite internal part 5 of the jacket-bearing members, so that a slot 6 is formed therebetween. Through this slot 6 a sleeveless jacket can be inserted by its shoulders into either of the hanger portions, by lifting up these external parts 5'. Whereas, under the weight of a sleeved jacket being hung by its shoulders on the jacket-bearing members, the external parts 5' of the jacket-bearing members are lowered down, so that two continuous jacket-bearing members are then formed with the internal parts 5 thereof.
  • Both the internal and external parts 5, 5' of the transversely enlarged jacket-bearing members are improved in that they have their upward faces formed with a plurality of ribs 105, 105', to prevent the jacket shoulders from slipping off therefrom. These ribs are arranged transversely relative to the longitudinal extent of both arms 1', 1'' and in a mutually spaced apart relation, and are interconnected lengthwise of the arms 1', 1'' by a longitudinal median rib 205, 205'.
  • A median aperture 8 is formed in the dress-hanger portion 7 for connection of the intermediately located dress-hanger hook member 2 to either downwardly inclined arms 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1. The median aperture 8 is substantially rhomboidal in shape, and is so formed that its peripheral upper part is delimited by two diverging downward extensions 102 of the dress-hanger hook member 2, and has its open lower end closed by a U-shaped stirrup-like member 9. Through these two diverging downward extensions 102 the dress-hanger hook member 2 is connected to the associated inner ends of either arms 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1. By the provision of this aperture 8 a means is provided for holding up at least one pressure-reducing valve R of a delivery device for an air-breathing apparatus, particularly for holding up the pressure-reducing valves R of two delivery devices.
  • The trousers-carrying bar 3 is connected to the jacket-carrying element 1 at respective intermediate locations by means of stiffening members 10, 11. These stiffening members are easily removable by breaking them up at predetermined weakening lines 12, and should be removed when trousers or the like are to be hung on the trousers-carrying bar 3.
  • The stiffening member 10 is for connecting at a median position the upper side of the trousers-carrying bar 3 to the bottom edge of the stirrup-like member 9. This stiffening member is removable by breaking it up at a predetermined weakening line 12.
  • The stiffening members 11 are provided at both sides of the intermediately located stiffening member 10. These stiffening members are in form of hanger members 11 for pieces of a diving outfit to be suspended therefrom. Each stiffening member 11 is removably connected by means of connecting webs 13 to the upper side of the trousers-carrying bar 3, as well as to the lower side of the respective arm 1', 1'' of the jacket-carrying element 1 and to the respective side edge of the U-shaped stirrup-like member 9. The hanger member-connecting webs 13 are removable by breaking them up at predetermined web-weakening lines 12, to have a clear space at the trouser-carrying bar 3. Moreover, the hanger members 11 are formed with further means 111, 112 for the hanger members to be snappingly engaged on the upper side of the trousers-carrying bar 3 in a removable manner.
  • Specifically, the trousers-carrying bar 3 has an H-shaped cross section, with both of its projecting upper and lower wing-like edges extending lengthwise of, and outwardly from either of the dress-hanger faces. At the top portion of each hanger member 11 for diving outfit pieces to be suspended therefrom, a respective means is provided for the projecting upper edges of the H-shaped trousers-carrying bar 3 to be engaged therein, and is formed with undercuts 111, 211. This means consists of a guide member extending across the top portion of the respective hanger member 11, and being associated with the upper end portion of the hanger member stem 311. At the one side end portion of this transversely extending guide member, preferably at the free side end portion thereof, a groove is formed between the undercut 111 and the underside of the hanger member top portion, into which one of the projecting longitudinal upper edges of the H-shaped trouser-carrying bar 3 is fittable. The other, opposite side end portion of this transversely extending guide member, which preferably lies on the side of the stem 311, is formed at the level of the bottom wall of the undercut 111 with a half-round inward projection 211. Owing to the inherent elasticity of the material from which the inward projection 211 is made, this inward projection is snappingly engageable under the projecting, other upper edge of the H-shaped trousers-carrying bar 3. The projecting trousers-carrying bar lower edge on the same side as the snappingly engageable inward projection 211, affords a surface for the stem 311 of hanger member 11 to rest thereon. By this arrangement further pieces of a diving outfit can be then suspended from the trousers-carrying bar 3.
  • According to a further feature of the invention, a projecting cylindrical member 202 is provided on both dress-hanger faces, at right angles with the hook member-connected common top portion of the diverging downward extensions 102. Owing to the provision of this member 202, annular seals 14 of the O-ring type may be held thereon. The outside diameter of the projecting cylindrical member 202 is advantageously slightly greater than that of the annular seals 14, which are then elastically retained thereon, however without undergoing any detrimental deformation.
  • The invention furthermore provides a safety means for closing the dress-hanger hook member 2 at its open side, so as to prevent this hook member from becoming disengaged from where it is hung. This safety means is in form of a string 15 or the like, and is passed through the holes 402, 302 respectively provided in the free end of the dress-hanger hook member 2 and in the top of the hook member-connected common portion of the diverging downward extensions 102.
  • Additional means 16 are provided for removably connecting, once the stiffening members 10 and 11 have been removed, the trousers-carrying bar 3 to the jacket-carrying element 1. These means are in form of one or more safety strings or the like, which are passed through at least the one hole 103, specifically through both holes 103, 203 in the median portion of the trousers-carrying bar 3 and around the curved downward portion of the U-shaped, stirrup-like lower member 9 forming the lower part of the aperture 8.
  • According to one advantageous feature, the dress-hanger is formed of one piece from plastics material. More particularly, the dress-hanger consists of one two-sided shaped flat piece, with its projecting, peripheral upper and lower, inner and outer edges being formed by continuous ribs extending outwardly from both of the dress-hanger faces, in the transverse direction relative to the longitudinal extent of the dress-hanger, whereby a sufficient stiffness of the dress-hanger is thus ensured.
  • The dress hanger shown in Figure 5 differs in construction from the dress-hanger embodiment according to Figure 1. In the modified embodiment, according to Figure 5, of the dress-hanger, the U-shaped stirrup-like lower member 9 has only one of its wings connected to the lower end of the associated donwnward extension 102 of the dress-hanger hook member 2. The other wing of this member 9 ends at a distance from the coinciding downward extension 102, whereby a gap 109 is formed in the peripheral outward edge delimiting the aperture 8. The means for holding pressure-reducing valves R of delivery devices for air-breathing apparatus therefore is substantially in form of a hanger member 9 with its curved portion arranged in the downward opposite direction to the upwardly turned curved portion of the dress-hanger hook member 2. A stiffening rib member 209 is further provided, and extends all around the peripheral outer edge of the U-shaped stirrup-like member 9. Just as the connected one wing of the U-shaped stirrup-like member 9, this stiffening rib member 209 is also connected to the lower end of the same downward extension 102. On the side of the connected one wing of the U-shaped stirrp-like member 9 the stiffening rib member 209 spreads upward from the lower end of this connected one wing to the underside of the associated dress-hanger arm 1'. Whereas, this member 209 gradually diminishes in size to the loose end of the not connected other wing of member 9. Therefore, a higher stiffness is afforded to the U-shaped stirrup-like member 9.
  • Also in the modified embodiment according to Figure 5, the hanger members 11 for diving outfit pieces to be suspended therefrom, are arranged in mutually symmetric positions relative to the transversal, vertical median plane of the dress-hanger.
  • Turning now to Figure 6, there appears that the hanger members 11 according to this modified embodiment, are each formed at their free end with a clamping member 17 for pieces of a diving outfit, such as a pair of gloves or of boots, a hood, or the like, to be retained therein. The clamping member 17 may be fastened to the free end of hanger member 11, or it may be made of one piece therewith.
  • According to the modified, advantageous embodiment shown in Figure 6, the clamping member 17 has its clamping parts respectively formed by the free end portion 411 of hanger member 11 and by the associated downwardly bent extension 117. This clamping member extension 117 is so bent that its downward free end 217 is caused to bear against the outward lower end of hanger member 11 free end portion 411. The downward free end 217 of clamping member 17 is enlarged, and has a substantially circular cross-sectional profile. This enlarged, downward free end 217 is caused to cooperate with a half-round projection 511 formed at the outward lower end of hanger member 11 free end portion 411, in facing relation with the clamping member downward end 217, and in a coincident position therewith. By a pressure being exerted on the clamping member 17, this member will be elastically spread apart from the hanger member free end portion 411, owing to the inherent elasticity of the material from which it is made. Like the hanger members 11 shown in Figures 3 and 4, also the hanger members 11 according to Figure 6, can be removably applied to the trousers-carrying bar 3.
