Application November 14, 1936, Serial No. 110,833

1 Claim. (01. 22618) My invention relates to garment envelope applying devices for use by laundries, dry cleaning establishments and like places to facilitate placing large paper envelopes over garments which spaced apart far enough to admit one side of a garment envelope freely therebetween. The outer member 9 is adapted to support one side portion ll of a garment envelope and the inner 5 are supported on hangers. member If! is adapted to support the other side 5 A primary object of the invention is to proportion I2 of said garment envelope, see Fig. 3, vide a garment envelope applying device which when a garment envelope is placed on said enwill receive and support a garment envelope in velope supporting portion. such a position that the envelope may be quickly The lowermost forward end portion of the outer and easily drawn over a garment supported on envelope supporting member 9 has a notch I3 10 a hanger which is suspended from the envelope provided therein for the reception of hook means applying device.

The members 9 and ID are minimum amount of space, as they are of a gen- 55 erally circular shape, and yet said members present no abrupt corners and provide an efficient envelope support.

After an envelope has been placed on the members ii and iii the hook i l of a hanger i5 whereon a garment i5 is supported is hung in the notch is. With the garment thus suspended the envelope is drawn forwardly and downwardly over the garment in a minimum amount of time and with a minimum amount of effort.

If it is desired to remove an envelope from a garment, as to exhibit a garment to a customer or to inspect the same, the garment with the envelope thereon may be hung on the member 9, the envelope pushed up over the members 9 and iii, the garment exposed to view for the desired period and the envelope then replaced on the garment without damage to the envelope and with a minimum of effort.

It will be understood that the size and shape of the various parts of this device may be varied. I have found it satisfactory to make the combined height of the base 5 and tubular support 5 about thirty-eight inches and tomake the loop members 9 and Hi long enough to accommodate a five foot envelope. I do not however limit myself to these dimensions.

-he application of garment envelopes to garments by hand and without any apparatus to facilitate the handling of the envelope takes considerable time and requires considerable labor. My envelope applying device, hereinbefore described, is simple in construction, not expensive to manufacture and saves a great deal of time and labor in the application of envelopes to garments in establishments where large numbers of garments are handled in envelopes.

The foregoing description and accompanying drawing clearly disclose a preferred embodiment of my invention but it will be understood that this disclosure is merely illustrative and that such changes in the device may be made as are within the scope and spirit of the following claim.

I claim:

A garment envelope applying device, comprising an upright support; an envelope receiving hook shaped loop adjustably connected with said support and supported thereby in a fixed position when the device is in use, said loop comprising two envelope supporting members of different size positioned one within the other in permanently spaced apart relation, the outermost envelope supporting member terminating in a downwardly directed end portion spaced from the innermost envelope supporting member and providing an opening at the front of the loop substantially above the support for receiving a garment envelope, the major portion of said loop being positioned at one side of the axis of said support and the downwardly directed end portion of the larger envelope supporting member of said loop being positioned on the opposite side of the axis of said support and adjacent said axis; and garment hanger engaging means provided on the downwardly directed end portion of said larger envelope supporting member, the weight of the loop helping to offset the weight of a garment when a garment is suspended from said garment hanger engaging means.
