UHD "FATS HERMAN L. BIENE R, 0F BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.
G-ART HANGER.
Application filed. April 6,
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HERMAN L. BIENER, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the cit of New York. borough of Brooklyn, in tie county of Kings and State of New-York, have invented a new and Improved Garment Hanger, of which the folowing is a full, clear, and exact description.
The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved garment hanger arranged to, prevent garments, particularly delicate silk waists and the like, from being soiled by rust spots incident to contact of the garment with the metal hooks or rubber-covered hooks now generally used for supporting the garment hanger.
Another object is to provide a covering for the suspension means of the garment hanger that is not liable to crack or capable of injuring the garment supported by the hanger.
lVith these and other objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction, as hereinafter shown and described and then specifically pointed out in the claim.
A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.
Figure 1 is a front elevation of the improved garment hanger, parts being shown in section;
Figure 2 is a similar view of a modified form of the same;
Figure 3 is a longitudinal section of a portion of the tubular covering for the suspension hook;
Figure 4 is a front elevation of a modified form of the garment hanger;
Figure 5 is an enlarged front elevation of a ortion of the same; and
igure 6 is an enlarged sectional elevation of the tubular covering for the suspension hook shown in Figures 4 and 5.
The garment hanger in its general construction and as shown in Figures 1 and 2, comprises a garment supporting member 10 and a suspension hook 11 for suspending the garment hanger from a suitable support. The garment supporting member 10 is preferably in the form of an arched bar preferably made of wood and coated with enamel. The garment supporting member 10 is provided at its middle with two concentric bores 1921. Serial No. 458,924.
12 and 18 through which extends the shank 14 of the suspension hook 11, the shank 14 fitting the wall of the lower smaller bore 12. The suspension hook 14 is preferably made of strong wire and is covered by a tubular covering 15, preferably made of celluloid, hard rubber or other hard material. The upper end of this tubular covering 15 is closed while the lower end fits into the large bore 13 so that the garment hung on the member 10 does not come in contact with the metal suspension hook 11. In the form shown inFigure 1, the shank 14 is extended below the garment supporting member 10 and bent into a hook 20 enclosed in a tubular covering 21 of celluloid, hard rubber or other hard material similar to the covering 15. The outer end of the covering 21 is closed while the other end butts against the under side of the garment supporting member 10. It will be noticed that by having the two coverings 15 and 20 engaging the garment supporting member 10 in the manner described the suspension hook 11 can be turned in any desired direction and at the same time the hook is held against upward or downward movement relative to the garment suspension member 10. It is understood that the downward movement is limited by the covering 15 engaging the bore 13 while the upward movement of the suspension hook 11 is limited by the end of the covering 20 abutting against the under side of the garment supporting member 10.
In the manufacture of the garment hanger, the suspension hook 11 is formed of a straight piece of wire passed through the portions 12 and 13 and then a straight tube of hard covering material is placed on the wire above the member 10 and this covered portion of the wire is heated by immersing it in water to softenthe covering and allow of readily bending the straight piece of wire into the hook shape shown in Figure 1. When this has been done, the piece of tubular covering is placed on the lower straight portion of the wire and likewise heated and bent into hook shape, as shown in Figure 1. It is understood that after heating and bending the straight piece of wire and its straight covering tube of celluloid into the suspension hook 11 and the garment supporting book 20, 21, the coverings of celluloid become rigid and hard on cooling andowing to the hook or curved shape of the enclosed wire cannot be pulled accidentally or otherwise 05 the said curved hook ends of the wire. From the foregoing it will be seen that by the arrangement described a garment and particularly a delicate silk waist or the like can be readily suspended from the garment supporting member 10 without coming in con-,
tact with the metal parts and hence is not liable to become soiled by rust spots.
In the modified form shown in Figure 2, the garment suspension hook is dispensed with and in this case the garment supporting member is provided with twoconcen tric bores 26 and 27 through which extends the shank 28 of the metal suspension hook 29. The lower end of the shank 28 termimates in a conical head 30 fitting'on a couninto the bore 27.
ter sink 31 formed in the under side of the member 25. The metal hook 29 is covered bya tubular covering 32 similar to the covering 15 and likewise fitting at its lower end Thus by the'arrangement described a garment hung on the member 25 does not come in contact with the metal of the suspension hook 29. It will also be noticed that the suspension hook 29 can be turned on the member 25 but is prevented from up or down movement by the head 30 and the endof the covering 32 engaging the bore 27.
In'the modified form shown in Figures 4,
, 5 and 6, the garment supporting member 40 is made of covered wire terminating in shanks 41 engaged by a metal clip 42. One of the shanks 41 terminates in a suspension hook 43 covered by a tubular covering 44 similar to the covering 15 and terminating in an integral socket 45 enclosing the clip 42.
A garment hung on vthe supporting member does not come in contact with the bare.
metal of thewire ofwhich the clip 42 and the hook 43 are formed. 1
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patentz vAs a new article of manufacture, a garment hanger including a supporting member'constructed from a length of wire havposite ends of which are bent to provide a pair of parallel contiguously' arranged ing a tubular non-metallic covering, the opshanks, the terminal of one of which extends beyond. the other and is bent in hook form with the covering removed, a metallic clip embracing'and securing said shanks together, and a tubular non-metallic covering element enclosing said shanks, the clip and the hook HERMAN L.-'BIENER,
terminal.
