M. c. HARVEY 2,166,492

HANGER Filed NOV. 8, 1938 2 Sheets-Sheet 1 /Z I I Inventor 1%. Cffjfa/ yfy A ttorneus y 18, 193.9: M. c. HARVEY 2,166,492

HANGER Filed Nov. 8, 1938 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Attorneys 7 l v Patented July 18, 1939 UNITED STATES Mae PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.

This invention appertains to new and useful improvements in hangers and more particularly to a hanger which is especially adapted for supporting dresses and like garments, but which 5 can also be used for supporting coats and the like.

The principal object of the present invention is to provide a hanger which is especially adapted for hanging dresses to the end that dresses can be easily applied and dropped off of the hanger with the least amount of efiort.

Still another important object of the invention is to provide a hanger for dresses which will also involve a. holder for price and size tags.

15 These and other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent 'to the reader of the following specification.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 represents a side elevational view of 20 a hanger with the arms extended. a

Figure 2 is a side elevational view with the arms dropped.

Figure 3 is a top plan view of the structure as shown in Figure 1.

25 Figure 4 is a side elevational view of the structure as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 5 is a section on the line 5-5 of Figure 1.

Figure 6 is a perspective view of one 01' the pair of arms pivotally secured to the shank por- 30 30 connecting blocks.

' Referring to the drawings, wherein like numerals designate like parts, it can be seen that the numeral 5 represents a hook the lower portion of which extends downwardly as at 6 and is 35 twisted as at I to extend .into the neck 8, the

lower portion of this neck being interposed between the blocks 99 where it is riveted in place to the blocks by rivetsor the like I 0. Between the protruding ends of the blocks 9 are 40 disposed the short laterally bent shanks ll of the garment "supporting arms H, the arms preferably being reduced at these shank ends for interposition between the ends of the blocks 9. Pivot pins I3 are disposed through the opposed 45 ends of the blocks 9 and through the shanks II.

The shanks II are sufiiciently long so as to bear against the vertical edge portions of the neck I when the arms are extended as shown' in Figure 1, and protrude upwardly above the 50 blocks 9 where they can be engaged by the collar II to hold the shanks against the neck and the arms extended, as shown in Figure 1. This collar i4 is in the form of a plate having the rectangular shaped opening i5 therein through 5 which the neck 8 extends and into which the shanks II can fit.

Extending laterally from the portion 6 of the hook is the spring member i6 which at its intermediate portion is formed in a coil ll between the convolutions of which can be inserted a size and price card i8. The remaining portion of this spring'lii is bent backwardly and suitably secured as by welding or the liketo the collar It. The spring thus constructed serves to normally maintain the collar l4. urged downwardly to engage the shanks llll and hold the arms I2 in extended position.

Obviously, with the garment on the arms I! all that is necessary to release the same is to pull upwardly on the lower leg of the spring l5, thus elevating the collar l4 and releasing the arms.

Obviously, with the arms released the arms can be easily inserted into the neck portion .of

' the garment and after which expanded preparatory to engaging the collar I I in place.

While the foregoing specification sets forth the invention in specific terms, it is to be understood that numerous changes in the shape, size and materials may be resorted to without de-. parting from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed hereinafter.

Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is- 1. A garment hanger comprising a hook, a

tion of the hook, each of the arms being provided with a laterally disposed head portion for abutting the 'hook shank and a collar vslidable on the hook for engaging the laterally disposed portions and a spring for maintaining the collar engaged with the lateral portions of the arms.

2. A garment hanger comprising a hook, a pair of arms pivotally secured to the shank portion of the hook, each of the arms being provided with a laterally disposed head portion for abut- 40 ting the hook shank and a collar slidable on the hook for engaging the laterally disposed portions and a spring for maintaining the collar engaged with the lateral portions of the arms, said spring including a coil adapted to support a card between the convolutions thereof.

3. A garment hanger comprising a hook having a shank, a pair of arms pivotally secured to the shank and each at its inner end provided with an upwardly disposed portion, and a collar slidable on the shank above the pivotal connections of the arms thereto and being adapted to straddle thesaid upwardly disposed portions of the arms to hold.the said arms in outstanding position.
