2 Claims.
This invention relates to improvements in garment container necktie racks.
Portable garment containers of the class which includes trunks, suitcases and hand luggage especially for mens wearing apparel are in general rather devoid of simple and efficient means for packing neckties without having the ties subjected to the possibility of undesired crushing, wrinkling or mussing. It is therefore, the primary object of the present invention to provide a garment container necktie rack with which containers may be easily equipped without any appreciable sacrifice of the normal storage space therein and which will efficiently pack and support a plurality of neckties without danger of the same becoming mussed or wrinkled.
A further object of the invention is to provide a garment container necktie rack which will hold a plurality of neckties in separated positions 20 and which is manipulable to and from a projected accessible position, in which position individual ties may be folded thereon or removed therefrom without disturbing other ties.
A further object of the invention is to provide 25 a garment container necktie rack which is swingable to and from a projected position and which has a unitary and common means for manipulating the rack to and from said positions, limiting its projected position, and securing it in its folded or compacted position.
A further object of the invention is to provide a garment container necktie rack which is of very simple construction, is strong and durable, is easy to manipulate, is accessible for the folding of neckties thereon or the removal of neckties therefrom, which occupies little space within a container section, which is inexpensive to manufacture and install, and which is well adapted for the purposes set forth.
With the above and other objects in view, the invention consists of the improved garment container necktie rack, and its parts and combinations, as set forth in the claims, and all equivalents thereof.
In the accompanying drawing in which the same reference characters indicate the same parts in all of the views:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a suitcase in open position with the improved necktie rack mounted in one section thereof and in its folded or compacted position;
Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional View taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1, and on a larger scale;
Fig. 3 is a similar vertical sectional view only showing the necktie rack in projected position for accessibility in packing or unpacking; I
Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary view showing the manner in which one arm of the rack is pivotally mounted on a container wall and also showing the retaining strap which cooperates with the rack in the securement of neckties; and
Fig. 5 is an enlarged detailed sectional view on line 5-5 of Fig. 4.
While the invention has been shown as comprising a necktie rack associated with one sec tion of a suitcase, this is merely for purposes of illustration, and it is obvious that the improved necktie rack may, within the contemplation of the invention, be mounted on an inner wall portion of any type of garment container such as a wardrobe trunk, Wardrobe case, or the like. Referring now more particularly to the drawing, it will be observed that the garment container, shown herein as a standard suitcase or piece of hand luggage, is indicated generally by the numeral 8, and this suitcase includes a body section 9 to which is hingedly connected a shallower cover section IE]. The interior wall or surface of the cover section, on which the improved necktie rack is mounted, is designated by the numeral l I.
The improved necktie rack is generally in the form of a U-frame including spaced arms l2 connected near their outer end portions by a transverse bar l3. As will be observed from the drawing, the arms l2 extend somewhat beyond the bar l3 so as to provide shoulders or stops to prevent ties from slipping off of the ends of the bar l3. The inner ends of the arms [2 are bent outwardly at right angles as at M, to form bearing portions received Within the semi-circular trunnion portion l4 of bearing brackets is. The outermost extremities of the angle portions l4, beyond the bearing brackets l6, are provided with knobs or heads l1.
With particular reference to Fig. 5 of the drawing, it will be noted that the bearing brackets I6 are conveniently secured to the container section wall H by means of prongs 18. These prongs are passed into the stock of the wall II and are bent or clinched. It will be observed that the bearing brackets It are mounted on the wall ll intermediate the side edges of said wall, and the rack, having its arms l2 pivotally engaged by the bearing brackets, is of such size that the bar l3 will position within the free side of the container section II], relatively close thereto.
For the purpose of efiecting or permitting swinging movements of the rack to and from its compacted position against the section wall H and for limiting its projected position and for furthermore securing the rack in its folded or compacted position, a unitary device is provided which is a very important aspect of the present invention. This device comprises a looped strap [8, and within said loop the bar l3 of the rack is embraced, intermediate the ends of said bar. The upper or inner: end of the looped-strap -13 is anchored to an upper or forward portion of the container section wall II, as at I9. end of said looped strap I8 is formed as a tab 20 projecting beyond the end'zof.theinteriorr-loop, and said tab carries the female member 2i of a snap fastener. The other-snap fastener-element 22 is mounted on a medial face portion -of the section Wall H.
Somewhat below or inwardly offthe-bearing brackets Hi there is secured on the inner faceof the wall II, at properly spaced positions the ends of a twosectional-retainingstrap 23. The
. meetingends of-the sections-of the strap 23 carry complementary-sadjustable clasp'members v'24. :These clasp-.members-may be adjusted on the strap to make. the strap more'or .less taut, as desired,uandthe clasping-members. are furthermore engageable or .disengageable .relative 'to each other.
In the use of the improved-necktie-rack,.-.as installedin a. garment "container, it should be noted that: the rack is installed on a :wall which assumes -a vertical @position' when the container is open for access. ..Initial1y,':forpacking neckties, the-snap fastening elements for the looped strap: l8 are releasedpand by engagingthe free tab end of said looped-member and holding it at an angle, the entire necktie rack is free to-be pivotally swung from its compacted position against the 'wallll to-a projected .angular position as showns-in Fig.-.3. -when-thesloopedstrap l8'is thus released and disposed at an angle, gravity will aid-inrcausing therackto swing to the pr0jected.-position, --andoutwardwmovement of the rack is limited-by engagement of the bar I3 in the enclosed outer: .orv free end of" the looped member 18. Thereafter; the retaining .member 23 is disengaged and-separated, and then any desired number of neckties which are first preferably once folded, areagainsintermediately folded anddrapedover the bar. l3. of the rackas shown in Fig. 3. -After. the necktiesmare thus arranged, thetab end'ofctheulooped member [8 ispulled downwardly, and this operation causes the bar l3 to ride upwardly withinthe looped .member andfolds the rack compactly against. the. section wall II. To retain-the. rackin this position..the snap fastener elements 2! and.22. for the-looped The other holding folded neckties securely against an inner -wa'llwof.agarmentrcontainer, and prevents dislodgment, shifting, or mussing of the engaged -'-neckt-ies. By a very simple manipulation the rack-is projectedio an accessible position for packing or unpacking, and a common unitary "membertis provided'for holding the rack in its compacted position and for limiting its projected position, and for directing it to and from its projected position. The device is furthermore of simple and novel construction, may be installed in-any-form" of garment container-very simply and-at aminimum of expense and modification,
and is wellzadapted for thepurposes described. 25
