7 COVER FOR GARMENT HANGER-S Filed Jan. 3, 1938 1M7! 1km I I lnnentor I Gttorneg Patented Nov. 7, 1939 UNITED STATES 2,178,965 COVER FOR GARMENT HANGERS John W. Johnson, St. Maries, Idaho Application January 3, 1938, Serial'No. 183,111
6 Claims.
My present invention relates to improvements in covers for garment hangers and more particularly to covers for the conventional hangers adapted to support coats and dresses or other apparel having shoulder straps or wide, low-cut neck lines.
At the present time, the garment hangers in general use comprise a length of wire bent into substantially triangular shape, and having a hook formed adjacent the apex of the triangle. The wire is usually painted or otherwise coated to prevent rust and to enhance the appearance of the hanger, and such painting or covering tends to give the hanger a smooth slippery surface. Garments hung on the smooth surfaced hangers, as by shoulder straps, are apt to slip off and fall to the floor with the consequent soiling and mussing of the garment.
The principal purpose of my invention then, is to provide these garment hangers with a surface covering which will retain the garment, or the shoulder straps, in adjusted position, without the use of expensive mechanical means, -and without altering or changing the original hanger.
In the accompanying drawing I have illustrated 5 2 one complete example of the physical embodiment of my invention according to the best mode I have thus far devised, but it will be understood that changes and alterations may be made in the exemplified structure within the scope of the appended claims.
In the drawing Figure 1 is a perspective view of the garment hanger cover.
Figure 2 is a front elevation of the cover secured in position on a hanger.
Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view of the cover.
Figure 4 illustrates a modified form of my cov- Figure 5 is a perspective view of a portion of another modified cover.
Figure 6 is a sectional view of the cover and hanger taken along line 6-6 of Figure 2.
Referring now to the drawing, i represents the cover of my invention of substantially rectangular shape and which, preferably, consists of a strip of sponge rubber, and is of lesser length than the hanger on which it is to be used. Other suitable materials such as crepe paper or other rough surfaced materials may be employed to advantage however. The cover is provided with an eyelet 2 centrally disposed thereof. The ends 3 and 4 of the cover are folded as at 5 and 6, and the folded portions are attached together as by means of staples I and 8 to form pockets. The
ends may also be secured if desired bycementing or by other suitable manner.
In use the cover I is employed in conjunction with the conventional garment hanger as 9 having the angular supporting arms I!) and N forming corners or bends l2 and I3, and having the bracing arm M. lhe upper ends of the arms l0 and il are twisted together as at E5, and one end continues upward to form the hook Hi.
In securing the cover i on the hanger 9, the
, eyelet 2 of the cover is passed over the hook it until the under side of the eyelet rests on the adjacent portions of the arms i0 and H. The ends 3 and 4 of the cover are then stretched to the desired length and the pockets formed by the folds 5 and 6 are placed over the covers [2 and I3 of the hanger.
Thus the cover is detachably secured in position and is not susceptible to being dislodged accidentally. I
The sponge rubber cover strip being of a rough texture will not permit the shoulder straps, or
' the shouldersof the garments hung thereon, to
slip therefrom and the garments will be-supported in the desired manner, by friction therebetween.
In'the modification shown in Figure 4, I have provided the cover i with an elastic re-inforcing strip l'l secured by cementing or stapling on the under side of the cover adjacent the ends thereof, to prevent the penetration of the hanger corners, although these strips are not necessary unless the hanger corners are bent in a sharp angle.
In Figure 5 I have illustrated a modified manner in which the ends of the cover I are folded transversely upon themselves as at l8, and the folded portions are secured to the body of the cover as by staples l9 and 20. The staples are spaced from each other in order that the corner of the hanger may be inserted between the folded portion l8 and the-cover I, and the cover is attached or mounted on the hanger in the same manner as set forth in relation to Figure 2.
Having thus fully described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secureby Letters .Patent is:
joining faces of the folded portions secured together to form pockets adapted to receive the corners of said hanger.
3. A cover for garment hangers comprising an elastic strip having a rough surface, the ends of said strip being folded transversely against 5. An accessory for hangers comprising, a channel shaped member made of rubber and adapted to overlie the top of a hanger, and having end pockets formed therein adapted to receive the tips of the hanger.
6. An accessory for hangers comprising, a channel shaped member made of elastic material having a friction surface and having a length less than the length of the hanger, said member being formed to overlie the top edge of the hanger and having end pockets formed therein adapted to engage the tips of the hanger when stretched thereover. t
