Description

WARDROBE OR GLOSET FIXTURE Filed April 21. 1930 Patented Nov. 24, 1931 UNITED ySTATES PATENT OFFICE TRUMAN L. ATKINSON, or LUIJINGTON, MICHIGAN WARDROBE OR GLOSET FIXTURE Application filed. Ap1'i1'21,
This invention relates to a wardrobe or closet fixture particularly designed to carry garments and which may be moved to either a horizontal or a vertical position, in the first of which a supporting arm is utilized to carry a plurality of garment hangers in spaced apart relation on which garments are designed to be hung, permitting free examination andaccess to the garments for removal of any hanger and its garment from the supporting arm, while in the vertical position of the arm the garment hangers are held on the arm one over the other and with the garments thereon overlapping each other occupying a very limited space so that they may be Vwholly within an enclosing curtain therefor if desired.
A further object of the invention is to provide a construction of the type outlined `wherein a support for the garment hanger holding arm and for the enclosing curtain is very readily and economically produced, being manufactured at very low cost with easy fabrication and assembly of the parts `thereof. Various other objects and purposes other than those stated will appear as an understanding of the invention is had from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, `in which,
Fig. 1 is a perspective View showing the wardrobe or closet fixture of my invention in the completely enclosed position wherein the garments held on the fixture are entirely covered by enclosing curtains.
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the wardrobe fixture without the curtain thereon.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged vertical section and side elevation of said fixture.
Fig. 4 is a front elevation thereof, the -curtain holding support being shown fragmentarily. and
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary horizontal lsection on the plane of line 5--5 of Fig. 4.
Like reference characters refer to like parts in the different figures of the drawings.
In the construction of the fixture, a vertical plate 1 of sheet metal is provided with forwardly exten-ding integral'ears 2 which are bent forward Vand toward each other 1930. Serial No. 445,915.
from each side of the plate 1 and are then extended outwardly in parallel relation, while below said ears the plate is extended downwardly and formed with lateral enlargements at each side, indicated at 3, through which screws or other fastening means may pass to secure the plate to a wall. The plate extends a distance above the upper edges of the ears 2 and is then bent forwardly and downwardly and then to the rear making an open loop 4, the metal being continued in a downwardly extending flange 5 which bears against the front side of the plate 1. Through the flange and plate other fastening means may be passed either to secure the plate to a wall or to fasten the flange 5 and the plate 1 together.
A horizontal curtain carrying support is made from a single length of bar stock to provide a Vfront horizontal bar 6, curved ends 7 and a rear horizontal bar made up ofthe two end sections 8 extending from the curved ends toward each other and in parallelism to the front bar 6, the ends of the sections 8 being received in the loop 4 which is clamped thereagainst.
A stop shoulder 9 is struck forward from the plate 1 between the ears 2. Also a pin 10 is passed through and extends between said ears. The stop 9 is at a higher plane than the pin l() and nearer to the plate 1 as shown in Fig. 3. A flat bar 11 is provided at one end portion with a longitudinal slot12 which end portion is located between the ears 2 with the pin 10 passing through the slot. Said bar 11 at its upper edge is formed with a plurality of spaced apart notches or relatively shallow slots 18 out therein from the upper edge of the bar downwardly and forwardly as shown. In these notches the hooks of garment hangers 14 may be readily received so as to space the garment hangers from each other along the length of the bar 11.
The vbar 11 may be raised to a horizontal position, as shown in full lines in Figs. 2 and 3, the inner end portion thereof passing underneath the stop 9 which serves to prei vent the bar moving downwardly about the i pin. l0. By moving the bar outward longitudinally for a distance, such movement being permitted by the slot 12, it may be disengaged from the stop 9 whereupon it will swing downwardly and hang in a vertical position from the pin 10 as shown in dotted lines in Figs. 2 and 3; and with the garment hangers 14 having garments hanging thereon, the hangers and the garments will Voverlap each other and lie in relatively small compass close to the wall to which the plate 1 is secured. Vhen in such position acurtain closure 15, as shown in Fig. l, mounted on the upper horizontal support therefor previously described may be moved to closedposition completely enclosing the'liXtureand the garments carried thereby. 1.
This construct-ion may be attached tol av wall either in the open or within a closet, and
when the `garments are to be held thereon and not removed from any hanger 14 the curtains 15 will enclose and protect the same from dust or the like. The curtains may be.
moved to each side at the front so as to uncover the iiXture and the garments held thereon, whereupon the outer end of the bar llmay be grasped and the same withattached garments lifted to a horizontal position and the bar moved inwardly until its inner end passes underneath the stop 9, in which position the garments will be spaced in a row one back of the other on the bar 11 and freely accessible for examination and removal.
The construction described is a very simple one which is produced for sale at a very small cost. The bar from which the overhead support for the curtain is made is preferably rectangular in crosssection with the loop 4t corresponding therewith so that there'is no danger of the curtain supporting member turning downwardly in the loop 4. The plate 1 and the parts integral therewith are made from a single blank of sheet metal by the y use of suitable dies and a large quantityv productionis possible, the same also being true of the bar 6 which preferably is of latmetal bar stock. The invention isdeined in the f appended claims and is to be considered comprehensive of all forms of structure coming within their scope.
I claim:
l. In a construction of the class described, aY vertically positioned bacl plate ofv sheet metal having ears bent forwardly from each side edge of the plate thence inwardlyand terminating in forwardly extending parallel portions, a stop( struck forward from the back plate between the ears, al pin passing through and connecting said ears below and in front of said stop, and a iat metal bar located be-` tween the parallel portions of saidears-and having a' longitudinal slot near oney end through which said pin passes whereby the bar ymayV be shifted. to 'engage or disengage said stop, said bar at its upper edge beingkproone end through which said pin passes, Whereby the b ar maybe slid under the stop, said bar being adapted to receive hangers thereon.
3.1m a hanger of the class described, a
n'back plate, ear means rigid with the back plate and yextending therefrom7 supporting means rigid with the ear means and extending laterally therefrom, a bar having a slot therein, said supporting means being received in said vslot `whereby the bar may have rotation about the supporting means and also be translated relative thereto dependent upon the play between the supporting means and the bar, and stop means engaging said bar between the said supporting means and the back plate when the bar is substantially horizont-al and positioned at a predetermined point relative to its translative movement.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
' TRUMANL. ATKINSON.
