Jan. 25, 1949. H. G. ALoFs UTI ITY GARM HANGER HERMAN G. ALoFs @LMA- 1 ToRNEYs Patented Jan. 25, 194:9

Herman G. Alois',

to Al'ofs Manufacturing Company,

Grand Rapids, Mich., assigner Grand Rapids, Mich., a corporation of Michigan Application October 29, 1945, Serial No. 625,263 a claims. (c1. ais-sos) l rihis invention relates to a bracket construction and mounting therefore, which has been primarily designed for the hanging of garments though of course many other articles-.may be hung thereon and supported thereby. It is a primary object and purpose of the present -invention to provide a constructiton of the ltype noted which is easily suspended, for example from the upper edge of the door or other equivalent support, is of a very simple construction, assembled in a very short time without requiring the use of tools, may be readily disassembled for carrying if wanted, in its assembled condition is secure against accidental orA other than designed separation, and which in use under the weight of the articles supported is maintained locked against separation or disassembly.

An understanding of the invention may be had from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the bracket hanger construction of my invention.

Fig. 2 is a front elevation partly in vertical section, the section being taken on the line of 2-2 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary side elevation of the inner end portion of the bracket or hanger, and

Fig. 4 is a vertical section and partial plan on the plane of line -ll of Fig. 2.

Like reference characters refer to like parts in the different iigures of the drawing, and the sectional views are taken in directions indicated by the arrows.

In the construction embodying my invention, a plate of flat metal is formed having a vertical part I, from which a horizontal flange 2 is bent rearwardly at right angles and terminates in a downturned lip 3. Said sheet metal supporting member may ybe hung over the Yupper edge of a door or other equivalent support.

The front vertical portion l is formed adjacent its upper end and a little to one side of the vertical middle line thereof with an outwardly pressed eye 4 integral with the part I to provide a vertically located socket. At the lower end of the socket 4 and to the opposite side of the vertical middle line of the part I, a second socket member 5 or eye is pressed outwardly, making a socket of a horizontal character as distinguished from the vertical socket portion 4 and a third socket 6 is vpressed outwardly substantially at the vertical middle line of the part I as shown.

A wire bracket or hanger arm is provided having a horizontal lower section 1 from which, vat its inner end, a vertical arm 3 is bent at right 2 angles. The arm 8 at its upper end portion is bent laterally at right angles terminating in a. horizontal section At the outer end of the lowermostgseotion 'I it is bent upwardly and back upon itself in a U-turn, providing a hook portion I0, from which `an upwardly and inwardly inclined section II extends which, at its inner end portion, is bent downwardly t0 provide a terminal vertical section I2.

In the assembly, the free end of the section 9 is inserted through the vertical socket `l5 from below and the bracket =or hanger arm turned for the passage of the vertical arm 8 upwardly through the socket 6, the terminal section 9 being 'passed through the horizontal socket at 5. The vertical end section I2 at the inner end of the part; II is then inserted downwardly through the vertical socket 4. The material of the rod II is of resilient metal and maybe strained away from positions normally occupied to effect such assembly so that the parts, upon springing back to their regular and normal positions, will be 1ocated as shown in Fig. 1, with the lower end portion of the section I2 located at one side of the upper part of the vertical arm 8, interposing a stop against a movement which would disengage the section 9 from the socket 5 through which it is passed.

Upon the suspending of garment hangers with garments thereon, or other weights, on the arm Idescribed the parts are maintained in their normal position as shown in Fig. 1 and any accidental or undesired disconnection of the supporting plate member and the carrying arm is insured against. Y

For disassembly it is merely necessary to grasp the upper section II and spring the inner end portion thereof upwardly to disconnect section I2 fromits retaining socket at Il, thereupon the verticalarm 8 may be moved laterally to disconnect the section 9 from its retaining socket 5 and then the bracket arm removed by moving the arm 8 and the section 9 downwardly through the vertical socket 6. This provides a ready and almost instant disassembly of the two members of the structure for easy carrying.

The construction described is simple, practical and very effective for the purposes for which it is designed. It is of course evident that the socket loops, particularly those indicated at 5 and 6, are made sufficiently large that the assembly and disassembly as described may be readily performed. Preferably, in matching the vertical terminal section l2 with the vertical socket through which it is passed, the bracket arm will be strained toward the rear to bring the lower end of such terminal section l'2 in alinement with the socket which receives it, this providing additional insurance against a disconnection of the part I2 from its receiving socket.

The invention is defined in the appended claims and is to be considered comprehensive of all forms of structure coming within their scope.

I claim: Y

1. In a construction as described, a vertical sup port plate having upper and lower vertical socket eye members therein, and a third horizontally locatedsocket eye member at the lower end and to one l,side of the upper socket member, and an arm having a vertical section extending upwardly through the lower vertical socket member and at its upper end a laterally turned terminal section passing through said horizontal socket eye member, said arm at the lower end of said vertical section being extended outwardly and return bent and extending to the supporting plate and having a vertical terminal section passing downwardly through the upper vertical socket eye member, said last mentioned terminal section overlapping, at its ylower portion, the upper end of said rst mentioned vertical section of said arm to thereby from the metal and pressed outwardly therefrom.
