CLOTHES HOOK.

APPLICATION FILED JULY 28. 1911.

LOUIS PHILIPPE GLOUTIEB, OF MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA.

CLOTHES-HOOK.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented July 2, 1918.

Application filed July 28, 1917. Serial No. 183,329.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, LOUIS PHILIPPE CLoUTInR, a subject of the King of Great Britain, residing at 34: Christopher Columbus street, in the city of Montreal, in the Provinceof Quebec, in the Dominion of Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Clothes-Hooks; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same.

The present invention relates to improvements in a clothes hook, and the object of the invention is to provide means for reaching an article of clothing that has fallen from a clothes line, or any other thing from an elevated position.

A further object of the invention is to provide a device of this character, of cheap construction, and foldable so that it will take the minimum space. Another object of the invention is to provide means for protecting the hooks, when the contrivance is not in use.

The invention will be better understood with the aid of the following description and the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device in use.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the hook.

Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the hook closed and provided with the protective cap.

Fig. 4 is a plan view of the hook, shown in its extended position.

Like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in each figure.

In the drawings, 1 and 2 are V-shaped members bent at their free or outer ends to form the hooks 3 and 4. The hooks are bent in such a way that when the said memhere 1 and 2 are arranged against each other, with their adjacent shanks held in contact by the elongated collars or sleeves 5 and 6 which are fitted thereover, they will project in opposite directions, as illustrated in Fig. 2 of the drawings.

At the upper end of the device, a weighted ring 7 is provided, which is slidable on said members 1 and 2 when they are closed together; and 8 is a protective cap formed of a sheet of metal, that will completely inclose the hooks 3 and 4 when the device is not in use. i

9 is a string, preferably, though any other suitable guiding means maybe used, secured to the upper portion or head of the members 1 and 2.

What I claim as my invention is A device of the character specified, comprising a pair of similar V-shaped spring members arranged flatwise directly against each other with the shanks of each member in contact with those of the other memher, the free ends of each pair of contacting shanks being formed with oppositelyprojecting hooks, a retaining member individual to each of said pairs of contacting shanks fitted over the same in relatively fixed position to constantly hold them in contacting relation, and a member slidable over both of said retaining members to control the movements of said pairs of contacting shanks toward and from each other.

Signed at Montreal, Quebec, Canada, this twenty-seventh day of March, 1917.

LOUIS PHILIPPE OLOUTIER.
