Application July 8, 1949, Serial No. 103,657

This invention relates to clothes racks for vehicles.

An object of this invention is to provide a rack or support for clothes, which can be easily and quickly mounted on the back seat of a vehicle without the use of tools and without marring the upholstery.

Another object of this invention is to provide a device of this kind which will support the clothes in a manner so that the clothes will not be wrinkled.

A further object of this invention is'to provide a device of this kind which in one form thereof will permit at least a partial use of the back seat, the device being extensible and provided with horizontally adjustable hooks for clothes hangers.

With the above and other objects in view, my invention consists in the arrangement, combination and details of construction disclosed in the drawing and specification, and then more particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawings,

Figure 1 is a detail front elevation of a clothes rack or hanger constructed according to an embodiment of this invention, showing the device in applied position on the back seat of a vehicle, the latter being broken away,

Figure 2 is a sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Figure 1,

Figure 3 is a, sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Figure 2,

Figure 4 is a plan view of one of the garment supporting members,

Figure 5 is a detail front elevation, partly broken away and in section, of a modified form of this invention,

Figure 6 is a sectional view taken on the line 6-6 of Figure 5,

Figure '7 is a sectional view taken on the line 1-1 of Figure 6,

Figure 8 is a perspective view of another modification of this invention.

Referring to the drawings and first to Figures 1 to 4 inclusive, the numeral l0 designates generally the back of the rear seat of a vehicle, and the numeral I I designates the ledge or shelf which is normally disposed back of the back [0 and below the upper edge of the latter.

In order to provide a means whereby garments may be supported in dependent relation from the upper portion of the back of the rear seat with the garment lying flat against the back l0 and extending over the seat, I have provided an elongated bar l2 which is adapted to engage 3 Claims. (Cl. 224-4245) 2 against the forward side of the back ID. The bar 12 is preferably curved in transverse section with the concave side l3 thereof rearmost for snug engagement against the convex forward side I4 of the seat back I0. I

The bar I2 is supported in horizontal position by means of a pair of resilient supporting rods or wires [5 which are of substantiallyU-shape and are formed at their forward lowermost ends with eyes [6 engageable with screw eyes 11 carried by the bar l2. The bar clamping wires or members I5 extend over the upper edge of the seat back It] and are secured by fastening means l8 to an upper or rear clamping bar 19. The upper or rear clamping bar I9 is adapted to engage on the shelf or ledge II and to bear against the rear side of the seat back [0, as shown in Figure 2.

A plurality of garment hanger supporting lugs 2| are carried by the bar l2 at adjusted points therealong, and each lug 2| includes a base 22 disposed in face abutting relation to the forward side of the bar 12. The base 22 has extending from the upper end thereof an inverted V-shaped hook or clamping member 23 engageable over the tapered upper edge 24 of the bar l2. A forwardly projecting arm or lug 25 extends from the base 22 and is provided on its upper edge with a plurality of notches 26 within which'the hooks or garment hangers are adapted to engage.

Referring now to Figures 5, 6 and 7, there is disclosed a modified form of this invention which includes an extensible horizontally disposed member generally designated as 21, which is formed of telescoping tubular members 28 and Y 29. The tubular members 28 and 29 l have mounted thereon garment hanger supporting lugs 2|a similar in every detail to the lugs 2|, and the supporting member 21 is supported on the forward side of the seat back I00. by means of resilient supporting wires or rods I5a. A rear clamping bar 30is secured to the resilient members 15a. and is formed of telescoping tubular members 3| and 32. With a construction as shown in Figures 5, 6 and '7, the device may be collapsed to be of relatively short length in order to permit at least one person to be seated in the rear seat of the vehicle, whereas with the structure shown in Figures 1 to 4, it is contemplated that the rear seat be unoccupied.

Referring now toFigure 8, there is disclosed a single hanger comprising a lug 2lb similar to lug 2 I, which has fixed thereto or formed integral therewith a resilient support I51), and the rear 3 end of support l5b has fixed thereto or formed integral'therewith a clamping member l9b.

In the use of this device, the bar I! is disposed against the forward side of the seat back 10 with the bar l9 engaging on the rear upper side of the back In and resting on the ledge II. The hanger supporting members 2| are adjusted lengthwise of the supporting bar l2 and the garment hanger may then be engaged in selected notches-{ 26913 'theI -lugs 25. 'lllhe garments supported=by'-t'his devi'cew'ill lie flat against the forward side of the seat back and may drape downwardly over the seat.

With a structure as hereinbefore:described the garments need not be folded and will not'become wrinkled as is the case where they-arepakdin suit cases or the like.

- horizontal means pivotally connecting said bars together and adapted to engage over the upper edge of 4 zontal bar, a second elongated horizontal bar, longitudinally bent resilient means pivotally connecting said bars together and adapted to engage over the upper edge of the seat back, a plurality of hanger supporting lugs, and hooks carried by 1iaid lugs engaging over an edge of one of said 1 ars.

3.
