HANGER CONSTRUCTION Filed Nov. 6, 1939 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 IN VENTOR.

ALBERT L. ST/RN ATTORNEYS.

Patented Dec. 31, 1940 UNITED STATES ATENT orric s 3 Claims.

The present invention relates to a hanger construction and particularly relates to a hanger construction designed to support both upper body garments as well as lower body garments.

Although the present invention will be described in connection with its application to a hanger having a coat supporting element and a separate pants supporting element, it is to be understood it has a broader application to the support and suspension or hanging of other garments than coats and pants, and it also has a wider application for use in connection with womens garments as well as mens garments.

It has not been found particularly convenient to place pants upon the usual garment hangen with a fixed horizontal bar, particularly when the coat is positioned thereon.

v The drawing of the pants over the usual horizontal bar of the hanger will result in crumpling them and deranging the creases; and if the coat is already in position, it is quite difiicult to place the pants in position; and the operation of placing them in position not only causes additional mussing of the trousers, but also causes mussing of the coat.

It is among the objects of the present invention to provide an improved hanger arrangement of the character described which will permit ready attachment and suspension of the pants upon the hanger without disturbing or mussing the pants or trousers and with substantially equal facility, whether or not the coat is already suspended upon the hanger.

Still further objects and advantages will appear from the more detailed description set forth below, it being understood, however, that this more detailed description is given by way of illustration, since various changes therein may be made by those skilled in the art without departing from the scope and spirit of the invention.

In accomplishing the above objects, it has been found most satisfactory, according to one embodiment of the present invention, to form a hanger of the usual shoulder coat supporting portion with a horizontal bar or rod extending between the lower downwardly inclined arms of the hanger.

It has been found particularly satisfactory to provide a separate bar or rod to be resiliently and detachably connected to said first bar or rod, which separate bar or rod may be readily removed and replaced and which when removed from the hanger may be readily and suitably engaged with a pair of trousers or pants.

It has been found most suitable to provide S-shaped spring clip members upon the ends of the detachable bar or rod, or upon the fixed horizontal bar or rod, to hold said detachable member in position and at the same time permit ready detachment thereof.

Referring to the drawings Which illustrate several of the various possible embodiments of the present invention, but to which the present invention is by no means restricted since the drawings are merely by way of illustration and not by way of limitation,

Figure 1 is a front elevational View of a hanger construction according to the present invention.

Figures 2 and 3 are transverse sectional views upon the lines 2-2 and 3-3 of Figure 1, Figure,

the line 1-1 of Figure G'upon enlarged scale as compared to Figured Figure dis a side perspective View similar to Figure 4 illustrating the detachment of the bar of the modificationrof Figure 6.

Referring to Figures 1 to 4, the hanger may consist of a main shoulder supporting structure A, a hook member B, a fixed bar member C, a transverse detachable bar member D and spring clips E.

As shown, the shoulder support member A has two wooden elements ll], rounded at H, terminating at [2, and joined together at l3.

At the junction 13 they receive the vertical portion l5 of the hook member B which has an enlarged end H5 at the recess ll below the element and has the upwardly extending hook portion I8.

The lower inside faces IQ of the members 10 are provided with recesses at 20 which receive theends 2| of the fixed bar memberC.

Adjacent the ends 2! of said 'fixed bar member C are provided the spring shaped clips E which, as best shown in Figure 3, are of '8 contour and have an upper-circular portion 22 and the lower circular portion 23. The end of the upper circular portion has an inturned end 24, which fits into the recess 25 in the upper bar C and the end of the lower circular portion 23 has the lower turned overlip 2B, which serves to enable ready attachment and removal of the detachable bar D. The bar D may be readily inserted in the direction indicated by the arrow 21 and removed in the direction indicated by the arrow 28 (see Figure 3).

The stock of the S-shaped' clip E is so formed that it will snugly engage the upper bar C by the rounded portion 22 and the lower bar D by the rounded portion 23.

The bars C and D, as well as the members III are preferably of wood but may be formed, if desired, of plastic materials, of metal, .or of other materials.

As indicated in Figures 4 and 5, the bar D may be readily removed from the clips E and then a pair of trousers, indicated diagrammatically at F, may be placed upon the bar and the ends 29 of the bar then snapped into position.

This may be done before or after the coat is placed upon the main hanger portion A.

Where the coat is already in position, the ba D carrying the trousers or pants F may be readily inserted in the coat and it is particularly possible readily to adjust the trousers on the bar D when removed from the assemblage of Figure 1 so as 'to make certainthat the trousers are properly draped and will not be unduly mussed or will the crease be destroyed.

The addition of the extra bar D and the clips E does not materially increase the cost of the hanger and the clips may be readily inserted in position either at the place of usage or by the manufacturer of the hanger.

The clips E should be so tensioned when not engaging the bars C and D, as to form circles of smaller diameter than the diameter of said bars C and D. This will assure a tight clasp of the bar C and D by the clips E.

In the embodiment of Figures 6 to 8, similarl functioning parts being indicated by the same numerals and letters primed, the clips E are shown as permanently connected to the removable bar D' and detachably connected to the fixed bar C.

In this construction by pressing with the fingers on the curled portion 26 and the lower rounded portion 22, it is possible most readily to detach the removable bar D from the fixed bar C, in the manner shown in Figure 8.

The operation of removal of the bar D in Figure 1 is readily accomplished by depressing the curled portions 26 and pressing ends 29 in direction 28. I

It is thus apparent that this invention provides a simple, inexpensive hanger construction particularly designed in connection with use for trousers and pants, but having greater application which does not unduly increase the expense of the hanger and which permits ready manipulation by a user of the hanger to suspend the pants in uncrumpled position without the necessity of drawing the pants through the open space 30 of the hanger. The resiliency of the clips E will accommodate pants or trousers of varying thickness and will hold the pants tightly in position so as to prevent slippage, while firmly attaching the rod or bar D to the rod or bar C.

It is apparent the specific illustrations shown above have been given by way of illustration and not by way of limitation and that the structures above described are subjectto wide variation and modification without departing from the scope or intent of the invention, all of which variations and modifications are to be included within the scope of the present invention.

What is claimed is:

l. A coat and pants hanger comprising downwardly and sidewardly depending shoulder support portions ascending to a central elevated portion carrying a suspension member, a cross bar horizontally extending between and connected to the inside faces of the lower ends of the shoulder support portions, another detachable pants supporting cross bar, shorter than said first cross bar, over the ends of which detachable bar the pants may be slipped before attachment to said first cross bar, spring clips serving as sole suspension means for said second cross bar from said first cross bar and having adjacent convolutions encircling and closely and resiliently embracing the ends of the cross bars, and holding said second bar in close adjuxtaposition against said first bar, said encircling portions having openings on opposite sides thereof to receive the ends of said bars and being integrally connected together between said bars so that the clips will be of S shape, said clips upon insertion of a pair of pants upon the second bar permitting said bars to roll apart on said clips while still being pressed toward one another and closely embraced by the encircling portions of said clips.

2. A coat and pants hanger comprising downwardly and sidewardly depending shoulder support portions ascending to a central elevated portion carrying a suspension member, a cross bar horizontally extending between and connected to the inside-faces of the lower ends of the shoulder support portions, another detachable pants supporting cross bar, shorter than said first cross bar, over the ends of which detachable bar the pants may be slipped before attachment to said first cross bar, spring clips serving as a sole suspension means for said second cross bar from said first cross bar and havin adjacent convolutions encircling and closely and resiliently embracing the ends of the cross bars, and holding said second bar in close adjuxtaposition against saidfirst bar, said encircling portions having openings on opposite sides thereof to receive the ends of said bars and being integrally connected together between said bars so that the clips will be of S shape, said clips upon insertion of a pair of pants upon the second bar permitting said bars to roll apart on said clips while still being pressed toward one another and closely embraced by the encircling portions of said clips, one of the ends of each of the clips having an inturned portion permanently stuck into one of the bars and the other of the 7 ends of each of the clips having an outwardly curled portion enabling ready detachment from the bar to which it is attached.

3. A clothes hanger having a horizontal cross bar and another detachable pants supporting cross bar shorter than said first cross bar, over the ends of which detachable bar the pants may be slipped before attachment to said first cross bar, spring clips serving as a sole suspension means for said second cross bar from said first cross bar and having adjacent convolutions encircling and closely and resiliently embracing the ends of the cross bars, and holding said second bar in close adjuxtaposition against said first bar, said encircling portions having openings on opposite sides thereof to receive the ends of said bars and being integrally connected together between said bars so that the clips will be of S shape, said clips upon insertion of a pair of pants upon the lower bar permitting said bars to roll apart on said clips while still being pressed toward one another and closely embraced by the encircling portions of said clips.
