Patented F ch. 5, 1952 UNITED; STATES PATENT OFFICE SKIRT HANGER Harry'firossman, Cleveland. Ohio Applieationjune so, 1950, SerialNo.--171,373.
This invention relates to improvements in garment hangers, and more particularly to improved skirt hangers of the type incorporating pointed hooks or pins for securely suspending'skirts, the primary object of the inventionbeing to provide more practical and-eflicient hangers of this type which include means preventing injury to the hands of the user by the hooks or pins.
Another important .object of the invention is the provision of hangers of the character indicated above whichare especially well adapted for use by dry cleaners, and which can be made in a serviceable and attractive form at such low cost that the hangers can be delivered with the customers skirts without "extra charge.
Other important objects and advantageous features of the invention will be apparent from the following description and the accompanying drawings, wherein, for purposes of illustration only, specific forms of the invention are set forth in detail.
In the drawings, wherein like or similar numerals designate like parts throughout the several views:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of one form of the invention;
Figure 2 is an enlarged fragmentary end elevation thereof;
Figure 3 is a perspective view of another form, for association with an ordinary garment hanger;
Figure 4 is an enlarged end elevation thereof.
Referring in detail to the drawings. and first to Figures 1 and 2 thereof, the garment hanger, generally designated 4, comprises a wire twisted upon itself and bent to provide a vertically projecting hook 5 from opposite sides of whose lower end project hanger bars 6 composed of relatively short, longitudinally aligned straight portions 1 arranged substantially at right angles to and extending in the plane of the hook, relatively short, outwardly and downwardly directed portions 8, terminating at their outward ends in relatively long, straight portions 9, which, like the portions 1, are axially aligned and positioned in the vertical longitudinal plane of the hook 5 and extend at right angles to the hook 5.
Outer end portions of the hanger bars 6 defined by the portions 1, 8 and 9 are coiled to provide circular guards formed of single convolution coils it positioned above the bar portions 9 substantially in the above-mentioned vertical longitudinal plane. The coils terminate at the sides remote from the hook 5 in upwardly and outwardly projecting straight arms 12. The arms I 2 rise at an upward and outward angle from the outer sides of the coils [B and extend above and outwardly beyond the coils It. The upper ends of the arms I2 merge into upwardly curved, return bends I3 which are positioned crosswise with respect to the above-mentioned vertical longitudinal plane. The ends of the bends remote from the arms 12 merge into shank portions l5 defiecteddownwardly and inwardly toward the arms i 2 and positioned in vertical planes passing through said arms crosswise of the mentioned longitudinal vertical plane. .The lower ends of the shank portions l5 merge into hooks defined by crook portions it which curve downwardly and laterally outwardly and inwardly and upwardly with respect to thesame sides of the arms l2 and coil 19, and terminate at their lower ends in la erally inwardly and upwardly directed terminals which are sharpened to provide pin points ll. The coils l9, arms [2, bends l3, shank portions l5 and portions l6 define hook assemblies M. The pin point terminals I! are positioned in the apertures of the coils l0 whereby the coils Hi serve as guards for the pin points I! aided by other adjacent parts of the device, whereby accidental contacts with the pin points i! are substantially reduced or eliminated in the handling of the hangers and in the application of skirts (not shown) thereto. In practice, the skirts are suspended by their upper edges or waistbands from the hooks by impaling portions of the tops of the skirts on the hooks.
Referring now to Figures 3 and 4 of the drawings, showing a form of the invention intended for use with an ordinary wire garment hanger I8 which includes a hanging hook 5a and oppositely directed declining arms IS, the illustrated skirt hanger 4a comprises a single straight hanger bar 611 having on its opposite ends hook assemblies Ma. similar in all respects to those described above in connection with Figures 1 and 2, with the exception that the shank portions I5a, as shown in Figure 4, are somewhat more greatly spaced from the arms Met in order to provide for reception of the declining arms i9 of the hanger [8 at opposite sides of the hook 5a between the arms 12a and portions I5a, which together with the bends 13a define inverted, U-shaped securing elements, whereby the skirt hanger 4a is rearwardly mounted upon the hanger it with the bends I311 resting upon the tops of the declining arms l9, and the bar to parallelly spaced above the bar 20 of. the hanger l8.
I claim:
1. In a skirt hanger, a hanger bar having hook assemblies on its opposite ends, each of said hook assemblies comprising a circular guard provided with an aperture positioned in the plane of said bar, and a crook portion positioned in a plane transverse of the plane of said bar, said crook portions having terminals formed as skirt piercing pin points directed toward the apertures of said circular guards, whereby said guards serve to prevent unwanted contacts with the pin points.
2. In a skirt hanger, a hanger bar having hook assemblies on its opposite ends, each hook assembly comprising a coil providing a circular guard positioned in the plane of said hanger bar,
an arm projecting from one end of said coil,-a
return bend on the outer end of said arm and projecting laterally outwardly with respect to said coil, an inwardly directed portion on the outward end of said bend, a crook portion on the inward end of said inwardly directed portion having a terminal directed toward a side of'said coil and projecting into the region of the aperture of said coil, said terminal being formed asapin point on which a portion of a skirt can be impaled for suspension of the skirt.
3. In a garment hanger, a substantially straight hanger bar adapted to be suspended in a horizon tal position, hook assemblies spaced longitudinally along said bar, each hook assembly comprising a coil rising above said her, there being an opening in said coil, an arm on said coil and projecting thereabove, a return bend on the upper end of said arm terminating in a shank portion, said shank portion extending downwardly along a side of said arm and being directed toward said side of the arm, and a hook on the lower end of said shank having a crook portion directed laterally inwardly toward a side of said 4 coil and terminating in a garment piercing point projecting into the opening of said coil.
4. In a garment hanger, a substantially straight hanger bar adapted to be suspended in a horizontal position, hook assemblies spaced longitudinally along said bar, each hook assembly comprising a coil rising above said bar, there being an opening in said coil, an arm on said coil and projecting thereabove, a return bend on the upper endof'said arm terminating in a shank portion, said shank portion extending downwardly along a side of said arm and being directed toward said side of the arm, a hook on the lower end of said shank having a crook portion directed laterally inwardly toward a side of said coil and terminating in a garment piercing point projecting into the opening of said coil, and suspending .means comprisng a vertical hook adapted for connection with a support, oppositely projecting REFERENCES CITED The following references are of record in the file of this patent:
