SWIVEL H 00K FOR COAT HANGERS, APPLICATION FILED AUG; 14. l9l4- 1,213 7 Emma Jan. 23,1917.
GEORGE WORDIRTGHAM, F MELWAE, WISCONSIN.
SWIVEL-HOOK FUR (MEAT-G misses.
I To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, GEORGE WORDING, citizen of the United States, residing at Milwaukee, in the county of Milwaukee and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Swivel- Hooks for Coat-Hangers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to suspension means for coat hangers, and moreparticularly to a swivel hook device for supporting such hangers.
A number of types of coat hangers are made from heavy press-board or thin wood and similar material, which renders them light in weight, capable of being packed in a small space, and cheap to manufacture, but they practically all possess a certain disadvantage, namely, that their suspenslon hooks are secured in such a manner that they are liable to pull loose from the board or body portion of the hanger and thereby destroy the usefulness of the hanger. Ordinarily, there is but one point of attachment, and that is in the nature of a rivet fastened through the connecting member of the hook and through the body portion of the hanger. It is obvious that in such a construction, any considerable weight imposed upon the body or bar of the hanger will cause the rivet to pull through the said body, if of pressboard, or cause it to split the body if of wood or similar material. It is, therefore, an aim of the present invention to provide a swivel suspension hook for a garment hanger of this particular type, so constructed that it may be readily applied without the use of separate fastening devices and, if desired, by hand, and in any event, without the necessity of employing complicated machinery, and which, when applied, will be firmly secured to the body or bar of the hanger and not liable to become loosened.
Another aim of the invention is to pro vide a connection for the suspension hook, of such character that it will adapt -the hanger to support a considerable weight and which, at the same time, will permit of the hanger having swivel movement with relation to the suspension means.
Another aim of the invention is to provide in a device of this class a suspension hook and an attaching member therefor, so constructed that the two may be readily and quickly assembled by hand and will not require the use of machinery to either as- Speciflcation of Eetters katent.

points and in such a manner as to not completely penetrate or pierce the same, so that the said body or bar will not be weakened to any appreciable extent.
the accompanying drawings: Figure 1 p is a perspective view of the device embodying the present invention applied to the body or bar of a coat hanger. Fig. 2 is a group perspective view illustrating the parts of the device disassembled. Fig. 3 is a vertical longitudinal sectional View through the device. Fig. 4c is a vertical transverse sectional view.
Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the accompanying drawings by the same reference characters.
In the drawings, the body or bar of the coat hanger is indicated by the numeral 1, and is, as stated above, of press-board, thin wood, or other similar and suitable material, and this bar, inasmuch as it constitutes no part of the present invention, may be of any desired form and construction.
The present invention comprises a suspension device includin a hook or suspension element 2 prefera 1y formed from a suitable length of Wire bent to form the bill.
of the hook and a shank 3. The end of the shank 3 is headed, as indicated at at, as for example, by a riveting process. The connecting or attaching member for the hook is preferably formed from sheet metal and the blank from which this member is formed is folded to produce spaced sides 5 and 6 and a connecting portion 7, the sides 5 and 6 projecting downwardly from the longitudinal edges of the connecting portion and initially occupying downwardly diverging planes. The connecting portion and also the sides of the member may be of any desired length and the connecting portion is preferably of a width substantially equal to the thickness of the body of the bar 1. For a purpose to be presently pointed out, one of the sides, for example, the side 5, is of greater depth than the side 6, and each of the said sides is provided at its lower edge with a longitudinally extending inwardly projecting toothed flange or piercing memher 8 which is relatively narrow and which, in fact, is of a width less than the thickness'of the bar 1. The flanges 8 lie in planes at right angles to the planes occupied by their respective sides 5 and 6 and due to the difference in depth in the two sides, the flange upon the side 6 will occupy a plane above that occupied by the flange upon the side 5. At a point midway between its ends, the connecting portion or back 7 of the attaching portion is formed with an opening 9 and surrounding this opening is a socket struck up slightly, as indicat"d at 10. The opening 9 is of a diameter to ermit of the free passage therethrough of t e wire from which the hook is formed but too small to permit of the passage of the head 4:, and in assembling the hook with the connecting or attaching member, the bill of the hook is fitted through the opening 9 and the hook 1s threaded through the opening until the head 4 seats in the concavity'or socket of the struck up portion 10. It will be apparent that when thus assembled, the attaching member may have swivel movement upon the shank 3. In applying the attaching member to the bar 1, the sides 5 and 6 are fitted over the upper edge of the bar so that the under side of the connecting portion rests snugly against the upper edge of the said bar 1 at a point midway between the ends of the bar. The sides 5 and 6 are then pressed together so as to cause the toothed flanges 8 to bite into the opposite sides of the bar 1, in the manner clearly shown in Fig. 4 of the drawings, and from an inspection of this figure, it will be apparent that the teeth of the flanges enter the bar about one-half its thickness, and that the teeth upon the side 5 are located below the teeth u on the side 6, or, in other words, that the teeth of the two flanges do not penetrate the opposite sides of the bar at corresponding or opposite points or along corresponding or o posite lines.
It will be apparent that by the provision of an attaching member of the construction described, the same is adapted to be firmly secured to the bar 1 and that its securing elements engage the bar at more than a single pomt.
It will also be apparent by reference to Fig. 3 that the concave side of the struck up portion 10 is of such depth as to completely receive the head 4 of the shank of the suspension book so that the head is confined within this concavity by'the upper edge of the bar 1.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as newiis:
Ina garment hanger, a flat sided relatively thin hanger body, and a suspension device therefor including a suspension hook, and a clip carried by the said hook, said clip having spaced depending sides arranged to confront each other and 'oined by a connecting portion overlying t e upper edge of the hanger body with the sides of the clip confronting the sides of said body, the clip sides being relatively wide and having the free margins thereof bent to provide inwardly directed flanges extending longitudinally of the clip sides from end to end of the clip with the said flanges disposed at substantially right angles to the clip sides and formed at their inner edges with a plurality of teeth, the sides of the clip providing jaws movable toward each other to clamp the hanger body therebetween and shift the said flanges to pierce the said body by the teeth thereof with the sides of the clip seating flat against the sides of the hanger body and with the said flanges extending into the said body at substantially right angles to the side faces thereof and providing elongated supporting shoulders within the hanger body adapted to receive the weight of a load upon the clip exerted through said suspension hook with the hook alttached to the connecting portion of the c 1p.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
