6 Claims.
1 This invention relates to a garment hanger or support and more particularly to a two part device, resembling the human torso in configuration and being formed of plastic, for supporting clothing for display and storage purposes.
An object of the present invention is to provide a support for a garment, which support includes the imitation of the human shoulders and bust, or of the human shoulders alone, or of the bust alone, for supporting various appropriate garments, either for display purposes or storage, the device being formed of two parts, one of which has the shoulder portions and the other the bust portions, the two parts being laterally adjustable relative to each other.
A further object is to provide a device as aforesaid which is made of plastic and which is largely hollow.
Another object is to provide a device as aforesaid provided with means whereby either sec- 1 tion may be hung, or either section may be supported from a base.
For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawingsforming a material part of this disclosure:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a device con structed in accordance with this invention, in hanging position.
Fig. '2 is a perspective view-of the shoulder portion of the device in hanging position.
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the bust portion of the device in hanging position.
Fig. 4 is a side view of the device in supported position on a .base.
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary view of a portion of Fig. 4 showing the adjustable connection employed.
Fig. 6 is a plan of Fig. 5.
Fig. '7 is a fragmentary view looking at the seam between the two sections, from the inside.
Fig. 8 is a section on the line 8-8 of Fig. '7.
Fig. 9 is a bottom view of Fig. 8 with the wing nut and washer removed.
The garment support 10, according to the present invention, comprises a shoulder section H and a bust section I2, both made of plastic and both largely hollow. The plastic is preferably transparent and clear and colorless. The two sections are detachable. They are joined along a seam l3 through the chest portion which is depressed between the breasts [4 of the bust section l2 and which rises above each breast and extends to the arms I5 of the shoulder section II. Section II thus has full shoulders H3 and these extend around the neck I! to form the major portion of an annulus which is closed by an integral dome [8.
The bottom edge of section II at seam l3 and the top edge of section l2 at seam l3 have complementary rearwardly extending flanges l9 and 2:: respectively. These are best shown in Fig. 7. In normal position, the flanges are exactly superposed, and are positioned by tongues 2! on flange 2B sliding in grooves 22 on flange I9, the tongues and grooves being at the outer end portions of the flanges. The flanges are also secured by three wing nut bolts 23, one at the center and one at each end portion. Each wing nut bolt has the usual bolt, nut and washer. The flange l9 has orifices 24 for the bolts, but the flange has slots 25 therefor. The slots are substantially triangularly shaped, with their wide bases adjacent the inner edge of the flange and their narrow open ends 26 at the edge of the flange. Open end 28 is narrower than the diameter of the bolt 23, as is clearly shown in Fig. 9, so that the bolts 23 cannot be slid out of the slots 25 horizontally but the wing nuts must be removed and the bolts lifted vertically to separate the sections l I and i2.
The flanges l9 and 2B, which are curved in one plane, are fiat in the other, so that they form means for sliding the sections it and 12 relative to each other, or more specifically, for sliding the section 12 rearward relative to the section II to push the breasts back of the front line of the shoulder section I I so that the overall thickness of the garment support is reduced for storage. This sliding is permitted by the slots 25, the small open ends 25 of which assure that the sections will not become inadvertently separated. The tongue and groove connections and slots are in proper parallelism to permit the sliding.
The dome I3 is provided with a central hole 2'! and a reinforcement 28 thereunder through which the hole 21 extends. A threaded hook 29 may be passed through this hole 21 and secured therein by a top nut 30 and a bottom wing nut 3!. This hook may be employed for hanging the entire garment support as shown in Fig. 1, or for hanging the shoulder section only, as shown in Fig. 2, when the sections are separated. Furthermore, the hook can be placed through the center slot 25 of the section l2 for hanging this, as shown in Fig. 3 if desired.
The garment support is also provided with means for supporting it from a base 32, as shown in Fig. 4. This means includes a bracket 33 bolted to a boss 34 on the inner face of the section H. The bracket includes two parallel spaced integral rings 35 against the outer edge of which rides a plate 38 having diverging wings 31 and against the inner edge of which rides a bridge plate 39 having flanges ii! overriding the.
side faces of the rings. A bolt M passing through the bridge and plate secure the two together and hold them in any adjusted position on the ring when the bolt is tightened, the bolt 4! having a nut 42 for this purpose. A bolt 43 passes through an orifice in one of the wings 3? into a plastic rod M which is secured to the base 32.
A similar means is attached to a boss 35 on the section IL. The rod 44 may support the entire device as shown in Fig. 4, or the top section H if the bottom sectionl2 is removed. If it is desired to support the bottom section alone,
the bolt 43 is removed and placed in the corresponding hole of the means secured to the boss 45. No description of this second means is given since it is identical with the means described.
Theangle of the garment hanger as a whole, or of either of the sections, when supported on 'the rod 44, can be quickly changed by merely loosening the nut 42, rotatingthe plate 36 about the rings 35 to the desired position, and thereafter tightening the nut 42.
The garment hanger may be hung by the hook in a closet to store a garment, either for long periods or short periods. If the garment does not require the bust portion to maintain its shape, section l2 may be removed. If the garment is such that it requires only the bust portion, section I i is removed and the hook attached to section [2. If the garment support is used for display, for example of a blouse, it will probably be used as shown in Fig. 4. If the bust portion is-not needed, section l2 can be removed. ,If it is to display an item such as brassiere, section .1! can be removed and the rod 46 attached to section i2. If the device is to be stored, it can be removed from rod M, or the hook removed if it has been hanging, and section 52 can be adjusted rearwardly relative to section it as aforesaid to' move the foremost point of the breasts back to about the same point as the foremost point of section H, thus conserving room.
While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications .coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:
1. In a garment support having two superimposed sections open at their rear and shaped to conform to the upper portion of the female body and havin horizontal meeting edges midway of the height thereof, a flange extended rearward from the bottom edge of the upper of the sections, a flange extended rearward from the top edge of the lower of the sections and engaging the flange of the upper section, interengaged means on said flanges for guiding forward and rearward movement of the sections relative to each other, said first flange being formed with spaced holes, said second flange being formed with triangu-larly shaped slots aligned with said holes and with their wide bases at the inner edge of the flange and their narrower open end at the outer edge of the flanges, bolts having threaded shanks extended through said holes and said slots, and nuts threaded onto the extended end of said shanks to be tightened against the adjacent flange for securing the sections in a desired shifted position relative to each other.
