Another object of this invention is the creation of garment hanger constructions which are strong, durable, easy to use and adaptable to ready manufacture in quantity and which em-- body the mechanical advantageous features hereinafter more fully disclosed.

These and many other objects are secured by the constructions herein disclosed. Various other objects and advantages of the invention than those hereinabove specifically mentioned will appear more fully hereinafter. It is to be understood, that the specific forms shown are merely illustrative and hence the detailed description thereof is not to be taken as limiting the invention itself.

Fig. 11 is a detail perspective view of our other novel unit adapted to securement to an inner or secondary framework to produce the hanger embodiment of Fig. '7.

It is the purpose of this invention to make more useful and improved garment hanger constructions. In the past different garment hangers of various types have been devised, but, as far as we have found, such hangers, with but few exceptions, have met with indifferent or little or no commercial adoption and success. The garment hanger which at the present time appears to be most widely favored and used is the conventional simple hanger comprising a single framework having a straight lower bar and an upper supporting hook, whether made of wood or metal or a combination of both. Such garment hangers as embodied mechanical modifications and additions upon the conventional hanger, in our opinion, have not met with favorable acceptance generally because of the fact that they have proven expensive to make, diflicult, expensive and impractical to use and keep in repair and generally not involving sufficient, cheap and ready advantages over the conventional hanger to warrant its replacement by a hanger embodying such modifications and additions. the conventional simple hanger leaves much to be desired. Thus, the number of separate articles of wearing apparel that can be supported thereon and carried thereby is definitely limited. Further, the order in which articles of wearing apparel may be placed upon and taken from such a hanger likewise is more or less definitely limited. To illustrate, a male user of such a hanger would probably find it necessary to take off from the hanger his jacket and vest in order to conveniently remove from the straight lower bar thereof his trousers although he naturally would put on his trousers before he: would slip into his jacket and vest, and if he tried to remove the trousers from the hanger without first removing the jacket and vest would either succeed in mussing and creasing the trousers, jacket and vest or all or in dropping the jacket off the hanger in the process of removing the trousers. .Moreover, as is also clear most men upon removing their clothing upon retiring will first remove their acket and vest and thereafter remove their trousers and thus when it comes to placing clothes upon the hanger will find that they have to lay down their jacket and vest while they first put their trousers upon the lower bar of the hanger since considerable inconvenience is encountered if attempt is made to place the trousers upon the lower bar of the hanger after the jacket and vest have already been hung thereon. Thus it is apparent that the construc tion of the conventional hanger is such that it does not conveniently lend itself to the usual order in which a user desires to place. articles of wearing apparel thereon or remove them therefrom. Likewise this same difficulty is met by a female user desiring to employ the hanger to support a jacket and skirt. Furthermore since the number of garments that can be supported on and carried by a given hanger without mussing and creasing is definitely limited, a comparatively large number of such hangers is required in the average household. It is the purpose of our invention to overcome these disadvantages and to create garment hanger constructions which are adaptable to universal application and satisfactory to use.

Referring now to the drawings, it will be noted that we have shown in Fig. l a garment hanger outer or primary framework I of conventional configuration having a lower horizontal bar 2 and an upper supporting hook 3. The framework I is provided in its upper portion with a U-like recess 4 which recess opens downwardly, the U-like effect being inverted. Secured in said It is of course clear that recess is a lining member 5 which is likewise of inverted U-like shape and is preferably of a relatively rigid material such as brass or other like metal. Suitablemeans for securing the lining member 5 in the recess 4 are provided such as screws 6 adapted to pass through holes in the member 5 and into the body of the framework I. It will be understood that the lining member 5 throughout and including its ends will conform in configuration to the surfaces of the recess and the inner surface of the framework I. Thus, theeffect will be to provide a lined smooth surfaced recess in the upper portion of framework I. As is apparent this recess will have two vertical side walls separated from each other and joined at their upper ends by a horizontal top wall. A horizontal rod or pin "I is provided so as to run from one side wall to the other and be vertically spaced apart from the upper horizontal top wall by a suflicient distance to permit of the proper functional operations hereinafter described. Mounted on said rod or pin I is an element 8 of leaf-like form and provided with an enlarged end 9 having an internal slot I0 extending transversely of the width of element 8 and from one side edge thereof to the other in which slot the rod or pin I is disposed so that the element 8 may be moved with the slot I0 sliding upon the pin or red I. At this point we desire to have it noted that for the purpose of proper operation of our device the rod or pin 1 must be spaced apart from the upper horizontal v top wall of the lining member 5 by a distance greater than the length of the slot I0 to prevent binding of member 8 with said wall.

Mounted on the side walls of lining member 5 nearer the opening of the lined inverted recess, that is, further down, are two opposed horizontal pins II, which pins are arranged so that their respective center axes are colinear, or, in other words, the pins although opposed are in axial alignment with each other, and such pins are so disposed that the center axis lies parallel to, but to one side of the axis of rod or pin 1. Element 8 is provided with a notch or groove I2, of preferably rectangular outline or other suitable smooth geometrical shape, on each side edge thereof which notches are respectively located I in the said respective side edges of element 8 at equal distances from the top thereof and which notches open in opposite directions. In this connection it should be further understood that the notches should be so arranged that when the device is in the position shown in Fig. 1, said notches will lie at a distance below the pins II no greater than the length of internal slot I0, so that elevation of element 8 and sliding thereof upon the pin or rod I to, or adjacent, the end of slot III will bring the notches I2 into line with the pins II, so that the proper functional operations hereinafter described may be attained.

Secured at the free end of element 8 we preferably provide an integral rigid hook I3 adapted at the election of the user of our device to serve the double purpose of providing a handle for manually performing the functional operations hereinafter described and/or providing an auxiliary supporting means for articles of wearing apparel as hereinafter described. It will be understood that element 8 is preferably provided bent in right angle form so as to provide an end flange I4 which carries the integral hook I3 which hook is of a width less than the width of flange I4 and is disposed substantially midlength of the width of flange I4. It will be fur- .auaaoe;

ther understood that element 8. flange l4 and hook I3 are preferably, but not necessarily, in-. tegral with each other.

Secured to the under surface of flange i4 is our inner or secondary hanger framework i5 which also has a lower horizontal bar It. This framework may be carried by the element 8 at the lower end of said element by the employment of any suitable appropriate means, for example: by riveting the flange l4 and the framework l5 together with a rivet IT as shown in Figs. 1 to 4. inclusive, of the drawings, or by using any other suitable device such as screws,

bolts, etc., or even by forming the framework l5 integral with the flange H, as may be most desirable and convenient. In the embodiment shown in Fig. 1 the outer or primary framework I shown is of wood while the inner or secondary framework I5 is of metal such as brass or the like and is formed of a properly shaped strip or band of such metal having a width somewhat less than the width of the inner surface of the outer or primary framework I. The material of which the respective frameworks and the respective lower bars 2 and iii are made may be, it will be understood, such as is-most. convenient and desirable and we do not therefore desire that the invention be taken as directed or limited to the employment of any particular material for such parts, but rather intend that an actual manufactured article of the type disclosed embody such materials as are found most suitable.

Having thus described the construction of the embodiment shown in Figs. 1 to 5, inclusive, we will now briefly describe the manner of operation and use thereof:

In Fig. 1 our hanger is shown with the inner or secondary hanger framework as hanging in the general plane of the outer or primary framework and in a position which may be termed as nested" therein. Jutting out from the aforesaid general plane of the hanger frameworks is the hook l3 which is substantially at right angles with respect to said plane, that is to say at substantially ninety degrees with respect thereto.

Assuming now that it is desired to use the hanger for the purpose of simultaneously supporting a plurality of articles of wearing apparel in spaced apart position, such, for example, as a jacket and a pair of trousers, as shown in Fig. 5. and it is desired to arrange the'hangers respective parts so that they will be in the relative positions shown in Fig. 5, the user will follow the following simple operations. The user will, with one hand. hold the outer or primary framework against movement and with the other hand will grasp the inner or secondary framework or an attached part at any convenient place, such as at the framework proper or preferably at the hook i3, which as aforementioned is adapted to provide a ready handle for such purposes. The user will then raise the inner or secondary framework with respect to the outer or primary framework so that element 8 slides via slot I) along rod or pin 1 until the notches !2 are in line with the pins II. The user will then rotate the inner or secondary framework upon the rod or pin 1 as an axis, swinging the inner or secondary framework outwardly with the element 8 passing the pins ll via the slots l2. After the inner or secondary framework has been swung outwardly through an angle sufficient so that the element 8 is clear of the pins H, the entire inner or secondary framework and element 8 is pulled downwardly so that element 8 via slot i0 moves downwardly on the rod or pin I and' lowers the notches l2 out of alignment with the pins H, and thereupon the user will release the .inner or secondary framework and permit the same to swing back so that the element 8 at its rear surface hits against and is stopped by the pins II which act as lugs limiting the return of the inner or secondary framework and acting to hold the same angularly distended from the plane of the outer -or primary framework. When the hanger has been placed in the condi tion outlined, it will be understood, that the parts of the hanger construction will relatively be in the positions as shown in Fig. 5 and that a jacket then may be hung upon the outer or primary framework, a pair of trousers may be hung upon the lower bar of the extended inner or secondary framework and a hat, a tie, a shirt, or other article of wearing apparel may. be hung upon the hook l3 and appropriate arrangement and order of hanging articles may be employed as best suits the fashion, taste and desires of the user.- It will of course be understood that with the device as just .outlined the user may hang the various articles of his wearing apparel or her wearing apparel, as the case may be, in the order that such articles are removed from the person, and may reassume the wearing of such articles in the order that they are usually placed upon the wearers body. Further than this, it is clear thatif the user wills otherwise that the hanger may be employed in such fashion as the user may elect. Moreover garments may also be supported on the lower bar 2 and the inner or secondary framework i5 as well as upon the outer or primary framework I and the lower bar l6. Thus, it will be observed that besides other features our invention presents five supporting means, to wit: the'outer or primary framework, I; the lower bar 2; the inner or secondary framework, IS; the second lower bar, I6; and the hook, 13. Accordingly the hanger construction described is highly adaptable and suitable for providing a single hanger unit which may as the occasion requires support a greater number of articles than is supportable upon conventional present day hangers, and in such relation as will insure a minimum of mussing or creasing, if not a complete avoidance thereof. Moreover it will be still further understood that the present construction essentially provides two hanger frameworks and an auxiliary supporting hook and that accordingly the range of usefulness thereof is appropriately multiplied.

Turning now back to the drawings it will be found that in Figs. 1 and 2 the inner or secondary framework is shown nested within the outer or primary framework and in F'g. 4 the inner or secondary framework is shown as being swung outwardly and with the slots l2 passing the pins ii. In Fig. 3 the inner or secondary framework is shown in its finalangularly distended position and as being held in such position by resting against the pins H, which as aforesaid act as lugs limiting the return of the inner or secondary framework. It of course is clear that when it is desired to return the inner or secondary framework from the position shown in Fig. 5 back to that shown in Fig. 1 that the said inner or secondary framework must be again raised so that the member 8 slides via slot I0 on the pin or rod 1 until the notches l2 fall in. line with the pins H and the said framework may then be swung back into the position shown in Fig. 1. Turning for the moment to the view shown in Fig. 3, it will be noted that we have shown therein in full lines the position that the inner or secondary framework may assume if the same is swung outwardly ashereinbefore described. Further we have shown in said view in dotted lines a possible position that such framework may assume if the same is swung rearwardly instead of outwardly, that is. under certain circumstances it may be desirable that the inner or secondary framework be free to be swung rearwardly (without being held permanently in 'any particular rearward position) such, for example, when it is desired to allow great and free access to lower bar 2'in order to hang some large article thereupon against which the inner or secondary framework would return and rest, thus avoiding any difliculty or objection that might be presented were the space between lower bar 2 and lower bar IS in a vertical direction insufiicient to accommodate the large article, or the setting of the inner or secondary framework in outward extended position for some reason or other is undesirable during the hanging of the said large article upon the lower bar 2.

Turning next to Fig. 6 it will be observed that ,we have shown a variant possible embodiment wherein we embody one set of pins II in front of element 8 and a second set of pins II to the rear of or behind element 8. In this embodiment two definite additional results are obtainable by virtue of the presence of the additional set of pins II. First, the inner or secondary hanger it will be observed can be selectively set in a definite rearward position as well as in a definite forward position; and second, the presence of a set of pins H to either side of element 8 will be effective to confine such element and the attached inner or secondary hanger to a nested position and in the general plane of the outer or primary hanger when the element 8 and its attached hanger framework is in lowered position so that the notches l2 are out of line with the pins II. In the view shown in Fig. 6 the element 8 must naturally lie substantially midlength of the width of the outer or primary hanger framework and hence should preferably join the flange l4 midlength of its width in an inverted T-like union as shown at I8 in Fig. 6 rather than to the rear edge of flange I4 in the L-like union as shown at IS in Fig. 2 as well as Figs. 3 and 4. Further it will be understood that the lining member 5 in Fig. 6 is also suitably secured to the outer or primary framework by appropriate securing means such as screws 6, or the like which as a matter of convenience and simplicity in the drawings are not shown in Fig. 6. Further it will also be understood that suitable means are provided for join ing the inner or secondary framework in the embodiment shown in Fig. 6 to the flange I l, which means for like reason are not shown in Fig. 6.

With further regard to the embodiment shown in Fig. 6 it will be understood that the use and operation of such embodiment will follow in principle that of the embodiment of Figs. 1 to 5, in-

clusive, as hereinbefore described, with, of course, the exception that the swinging of the inner or secondary hanger framework must be in the direction into which it is desired to set the same once freedom of swing is arranged for by raising the element 8 and attached hanger framework until the notches I 2 are in alignment with the pins I l, at which point the said framework may be swung outwardly or rearwardly. In connection with this embodiment 'it should be borne immind that if the inner or secondary framework is in outward extended position and it is desired to set the same in rearward extended position that such change in setting can be accomplished by bringing the notches l2 into alignment with the pins II and swinging the entire inner or secondary framework and attached element 8 past both sets of pins ll without lowering the same between the forward and rearward sets of pins ll. 1

Turning next to Figs. 7 to 11, inclusive, it will be noted that we there show another possible variant construction which embodies the principles of this invention. In these views it will be noted that we show an element 28, in Fig. 10, which replaces the lining member 8, hereinbefore described, which element 20 may be so constructed that it can be fabricated by simple stamping and bending operations. Thus, as will be observed from an inspection of Fig. 10, said element 20 may be provided with two. sets of lugs 2i stamped and pressed out therefrom which lugs will be the counterpart of pins II. In Fig. 11 an element 22 which likewise can be fabricated by simple stamping and bending operations is shown which replaces the element 8, hereinbefore described.

Element 22, it will be noted, is formed of a single strip of metal or the like stamped with slots 23 and holes 30 and bent into the form shown in Fig. 11 so that the slots 23 are in opposite walls and in alignment with each other. This element 22 is also 'so bent as to provide channels 24 which in the assembled device will pass over lugs 2|. It is to be understood that the width of the strip of material from which element 22 is pressed out and formed is less than the distance between lugs 2|. It is to be further understood that the slots-28 are the counterpart of slot i0, hereinbefore described, and that the channels 24 are the counterpart of the notches l2 hereinbefore described.

With these thoughts in mind it will be observed that the element 28 having the usual pin or rod 1 therein and the lugs 2| (replacing the pins ll shown in Fig. 6) jutting out from the side walls thereof is mounted in the recess 4 in an outer or primary framework I and is adapted to be secured in position by screws 6 or the like which pass through holes25 in the free ends 26 of element 20 and into the framework I. Mounted on the pin or rod 1 is element 22 through the slots 23 of which said pin or rod passes. Secured to the free ends 21 of element 22 is an inner or secondary hanger framework l5 having bifurcated ends 28 arranged to receive the free ends 21 of element 22 which may be secured thereto by any suitable means such as rivets or the like adapted as shown at 29- to pass through ends 28 and holes 30 for holding ends 21 into the bifurcated or slotted ends 28. Aside from the structural difl'erences just described it will be understood that the constructidn of the embodiment shown in Figs. 7 to 11, inclusive, is substantially the same as that of the embodiments hereinbefore described and it will be further understood that the operation and use thereof will be substantially the same as that of the embodiment shown in Fig. 6.

in Fig. 7 the inner or secondary framework I5 is of wood and not metaljthat element 22 shown in Fig. 11 necessarily must be positioned in proper position in element 20 before the pin or rod 1 ".70 It, of course will be understood that as shown is secured in position; that the dimensions of the channels 24 must be such as to provide free passage therethrough of lugs 2| when element 22 is swung out either forwardly or rearwardly with respect toelement that, as before indicated the width of element 22 must be such, and the distance between lugs 2| must be such that the element 22 may lie freely between forward and rearward sets of lugs 2|; and also that the manner of securing upper supporting hook 3 to the outer or primary framework I must be such as to allow full freedom of movement within recess 4.

We have found that the employment of all of the features hereinbefore disclosed will be productive of the ready manufacture of an embodiment by simple processes of stamping, pressing and bending of the elements which are peculiarly responsible for the operation and use as hereinbefore described. Turning for the moment to Fig. '7 it will be found that the embodiment thereof is shown with the inner or secondary hanger framework nested within the outer or primary hanger framework. In Fig. 8 the inner or secondary hanger framework is shown in full lines as lying with the element 22 between lugs 2|, that is, in full lines shown as nested; and in said view is shown in dotted lines in each of the two positions, to wit: extended forwardly or outwardly and rearwardly, that it can be made to assume. In Fig. 9 the said inner or secondary framework is shown as being swung outwardly into outward or forward position with channels 24 passing over forward lugs 2|.

It will be further noted that in the embodiment shown in Figs, 7 to 11, inclusive, no hook i3 is shown, however, it will be understood that the inner or secondary hanger framework may be directly grasped, operated and swung as desired, and further that a hook, such as hook l3, might be secured to element 22 in some conventional fashion if said hook was to be added to said embodiment. We desire to make it clear that we have shown said embodiment without the said hook solely in the interest of exhibiting how a cheap and easily fabricated embodiment of our invention can be readily made and not because we believe such hook inapplicable to the embodiment shown in Figs. '7 to 11, inclusive, and quite to the contrary we believe it will be readily appreciated that on a somewhat more expensive model of such embodiment the hook can and should be appropriately incorporated with accompanying advantage.

It will be obvious from all the foregoing that the invention we have herein disclosed is effective to attain the various objects and purposes hereinbefore outlined. Further, it will also be obvious that the said invention incorporates many features which are possible of general adaptation in garment hangers of constructions other than .those in particular connection with which we have described same and, still further, features which are possible of adaptation in hanging devices generally. Moreover, it is conceivable that materials other than those we have mentioned as being preferable might be employed in place of those we have mentioned with equal effect and result. Furthermore, we, are, of course, aware that many changes in the details of construction and relative arrangement of parts will readily suggest themselves tothose skilled in the art upon their becoming acquainted with our present disclosure.

Accordingly, we do not, therefore, desire to be limited to the exact details herein set forth by way of illustration, but rather to the spirit and scope of our invention as we define it in the appended claims.
