J. E. TURLEY CURTAIN HANGER Filed Feb. 8, 1940 INVENTGR. Jaws 2% zfo waraza'n BY @014 yflmaw A TTORNEYS.
Patented June 10, 1941 UNITE.
CURTAIN HANGER Joseph Edward Turlcy, Attleboro, Mass, assigncr to Ernest H. Augat, Attleboro, Mass.
Application February 8, 1949, Serial No. 317,854 I,
6 Claims. (01. 1536-21) This invention relates to a curtain hanger of the type which is secured to the upper edge of the curtain for sliding by supporting the same on a rod or the like and has for one of its objects to provide a curtain hanger which may be easily, quickly and securely attached to the curtain.
Another object of the invention is to fasten the hanger to the curtain without sewing and yet secure the same at its opposite ends.
Another object of the invention is to provide a hanger of a length which may support the upward extending portion of the curtain above the rod upon which it is hung so that the same will not droop.
Another object of the invention is to provide a curtain hanger which may be locked upon the rod against accidental removal.
With these and other objects in View, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction as will be more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawing:
Fig. 1 is an elevation showing curtains as supported by means of several of the curtain hangers, each of which is the subject of this invention;
Fig. 2 is a section on substantially line 2-2 of Fig. 1 showing a fragmental portion of the curtain, the rod, and the hanger;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the hanger;
Figs. 4 and 5 are perspective views of a modified form of the hanger.
Hangers for curtains are frequently sewed to the curtain providing an open hook which may engage the curtain supporting a rod. Considerable time is consumed in the sewing of such a hanger onto the curtain and the open hook permits the curtain to be easily disengaged from the rod if any upward force occurs in the curtain such, for instance, as sometimes occurs when sliding the curtain from one position to another. Pin suspensions do not provide a secure means for attachment and also are open to the same objection of an open hook and for this reason are not satisfactory. In order to overcome these difiiculties, I have provided a sheet metal structure enabling any number of a plurality of points to be formed for providing the desired engagement with the curtain on one side and the curtain rod on the other side. By the formation of such a device of sheet metal, I am enabled to make a large variey of different shapes, all involving the same general principle of providing hook attachments at its opposite ends by piercing the. curtain and with some means between, the ends for engaging the curtain rod. In order that the device may lay flat with the curtain, the hooks are provided on one side and the rod-engaging structure on the opposite side of the curtain hanger; and the following is a more detailed description of the present embodiment of this invention, illustrating the preferred means by which these advantageous results may be accomplished:
With reference to the drawing, the curtain material to be suspended is designated iii. The rod upon which this curtain material is suspended is designated H and the hanger for this purpose, designated generally l2.
This hanger consists of a piece of sheet stock providing a body or bar Hi from which there is formed of the same piece of stock a hook H3 at one end N5 of the bar and a hook ll at the other end iii of the bar. These hooks are suitably bent into a shape best designed for engagement with the curtain material I0 and are sharpened to provide points I!) and 20 at their extremities. The upper hook extends generally at right angles to the bar as at 2! and then'curves backwardly upon itself in an arc of substantially a half circle, as perhaps best illustrated in Figs. 2 and 3, while the lower hook I! is formed by doubling the stock back'on itself through an arc of substantially half a circle so that the point 20 thereof extends generally upwardly par allel to the bar I4.
In use, the upper hook I5 is passed through the end about the portion 2! of the curtain to pierce the same at 22 and 23, thus firmly looking this end of the bar to the curtain. This point of attachment will be a'suitable distance 'from the top 24 of the curtain as will other hangers be placed on the curtain so that the curtain will hang evenly on the rod. After this connection is made to the curtain, the curtain is then raised to cause the point 25 in the curtain to be at the point 20 of the hook and then this curtain is lowered onto the hook and slid around the hook into substantially the position shown in Fig. 2. When the bar is thus fastened in the curtain, it cannot be easily detached and is ready for hanging. 1
In some instances instead of providing a single hook I5 I provide two hooks 15a and I5?) as shown in Fig. 4 and two hooks Ila and Ilb at the lower end of the bar as also shown in Fig. 4. Or in some cases, it of course will be apparent that I may provide two hooks at one end and one hook at the other (see, for instance, Fig. 5).
In order to attach the bar to the rod I l I have cut from the stock of the bar a member 28 leaving an opening 21 (in Fig. 3) and leaving the member attached to the bar as at 28. This member is then bent into a reverse position with reference to the bar and is in the shape of a downwardly extending hook providing between it and the bar a loop designated generally 39, while the end portion 29 of this member is somewhat resilient by reason of the bend of the stock of the member from the bar. The rod ll may be placed into this loop by insertion between the end portion 29 and the bar so as to rest against the under side of the curvature 3| as shown in Fig. 2 for the supporting of the curtain.
In order to prevent the escape of the rod II from this loop 3|] I have cut from the stock of the bar a tongue member 32 which is bent upwardly to meet the member 26 and close the space between the end of the member 26 and the bar as shown in Figs. 2, 3, and 4. This tongue member 32 will be resilient and permit of the rodbeing easily snapped into the loop Ed by pressure along the converging portions 33.
In some instances instead of providing two members coming together to form a closed loop 30, one member, such as designated 2t (see Fig. 5) may be bent so as to cause its end portion 29' to substantially contact the bar i2 and close the entrance to the loop 3d, while permitting of sunicient resiliency so as to flex for the admission of the curtain-supporting rod thereinto.
The foregoing description is directed solely towards the construction illustrated, but I desire it to be understood that I reserve the privilege of resorting to all the mechanical changes to which the device is susceptible.
I claim:
1. A curtain hanger comprising a sheet stock bar, hooks at the opposite end portions of the bar extending from one side of said bar for fastening said bar on a curtain, and a hook intermediate the ends of the bar extending wholly from the opposite side of the bar for supporting said bar from a curtain-supporting rod.
2. A curtain hanger comprising a sheet stock bar, hooks at the opposite end portions of said bar extending therefrom in a generally rightangular relation to each other and formed from the same piece of sheet stock as said bar, and a loop consisting of a pair of separable members formed from the same piece of stock as said bar located intermediate the ends of said bar for the reception of a curtain-supporting rod.
3. A curtain hanger comprising a rigid body formed of sheet stock, sharpened hooks of the same piece of stock as said body at opposite ends of the same for securing said bar on a curtain, and a pair of relatively separable members out from the mid portion of the body to leave openings therein and bent outwardly from the body to meet and provide an openable loop to detachably receive a curtain-supporting rod.
4. A curtain hanger comprising a rigid body formed of sheet stock, two hooks projecting from the opposite end portions of said body for fastening said body on a curtain, the hook at one end of said body extending in a direction at generally right angles to the extended direction of the hook at the opposite end of the body, and means intermediate the ends of said body for supporting the body from a curtain-supporting rod.
5. A curtain hanger comprising a rigid body formed of sheet stock, a plurality of sharpened hooks of the same piece of stock as said body at opposite ends of the same for fastening said body on a curtain, one of said hooks being at the upper end of said body and projecting therefrom in a curve extending upwardly, outwardly and thence backwardly with the pointed end portion of said hook terminating at generally right angles to the body member, and a second hook projecting from the lower end of said body in a curve extending downwardly, outwardly and thence upwardly with the pointed end portion of said second hook terminating in a direction generally parallel to the plane of the body member, and a pair of relatively resilient separable members out out from the stock of said body intermediate its ends and disposed in an outwardly bent overlying relationship to provide an openable loop to detachably receive a rod for supporting the body of the hanger.
6. A curtain hanger comprising a rigid bar formed of sheet stock, a sharpened hook at the top end of said bar formed of the same piece of stock as the bar for fastening said bar onto a curtain, said hook projecting from one side of the bar at substantially right angles thereto, thence upwardly and forwardly in a substantially continuous curve with the pointed end portion of the hook terminating in a line at substantially right angles to the general plane of said bar, and a loop formed of the stock of said bar comprising a hook member bent outwardly and downwardly from the opposite side of the bar than the side from which the hook projects, the free end of said loop member being disposed in cooperating relationship with respect to a portion of said bar to provide an operable loop for detachably receiving a curtain-supporting rod.
