COAT I'UUIGER Filed 0011. l2, 1954 INVENTOR. IL /M/ Na L E@ United States Patent O COAT HANGER Milan Miller, San Francisco, Calif.

Application October 12, 1954, Serial No. 461,800

1 Claim. (Cl. 223-94) This invention relates to a garment hanger.

The primary object of this invention is to provide in a garment hanger a pair of downwardly inclined arms, wherein each arm is made of telescoping sections; and particularly a catch or clamping mechanism which positively holds the telescoping sections of the arm in adjusted position and prevents accidental disengagement and which can be easily manipulated for release by pressure exerted from the top of the outer telescoping member of the arm.

I am aware that some changes may be made in the general arrangements and combinations of the several devices and parts, as well as in the details of the construction thereof without departing from the scope of the present invention as set forth in the following specification, and as defined in the following claim; hence I do not limit my invention to the exact arrangements and combinations of the said device and parts as described in the lsaid specification, nor do I confine myself to the exact details of the construction of said parts as illustrated in the accompanying drawings.

With the foregoing and other objects in View, which will be made manifest in the following detailed description, reference is had to the accompanying drawings for the illustrative embodiment of the invention, wherein:

Fig. 1 is a top perspective view of my adjustable hanger.

Fig. 2 is a bottom perspective view of my hanger.

Fig. 3 is a fragmental sectional View of the catch device on my hanger, and

Fig. 4 is a cross-sectional view of an arm of my hanger and through the catch device.

In carrying out my invention I make use of a hook 1 on the bottom of which is a suitable hub 2 from which extend oppositely arms 3. Each of the arms is of generally channel cross-section and has a series of holes through the central fiat portion thereof. The flanges 6 of the flat section are turned under sufficiently to hold therein a telescoping extension 7 which is preferably also of channel cross-section and it is slidable within the upper section.

'Ihe channels are arranged to form the arm so that the flat sides of the channels are superimposed and form the top of the hanger arms. The outer end of the telescopic extension is suitably curved or bent to prevent its catching on the garment.

A catch is provided to hold each extension in adjusted position. The important feature of this catch is that the button 8 of the catch slidably fills the selected hole 4 in the fixed arm section 3 and extends entirely through the same. This generally cylindrical button 8 is supported on the free end of a spring arm 9 which is anchored at its fixed end 10 to the underside of the movable telescopic extension 7. The button 8 extends through a hole 10 through the flat portion of the telescopic extension 7 and is long enough to extend also through the hole 4 of the fixed channel arm 3.

The above device operates in a simple manner. The extensions are adjusted to the desired length and the button 8 is aligned with the nearest hole 4 so that it springs into the same. This firmly fixes the relative position of the telescoping arms. If adjustment is desired, the spring arm 9 does not have to be pinched by the fingernails and pulled, but the top of the button 8 is depressed by a finger or thumb of the user, and in view of the comparatively thin top wall of the fixed channel arm 3, that is sufiicient to disengage the button 8 from the hole 4 and allow the relative telescoping sliding of the inner channel or extension '7. It is important that the fixed channel arm 3 be made of `comparatively thin metal so that the usual pressure of the finger is sufiicient by its own penetration into the hole 4 to push the button 8 out of the adjacent hole 4.

The device is simple in construction and easy to Inanipulate and it is eminently adapted for its purposes.

l claim:

A garment hanger of the class described comprising a pair of inclined arms of channel shape in cross section fixedly united together to form an apex, a hanger hook extended from said apex, an extension slidable in each of said arms, each arm having a series of holes therethrough, a spring finger on each extension, a button on said finger, an aperture through said extension registering with said button, said button fitting through said aperture and through a selected hole on the adjacent arm, the thickness of the arm at said hole being such as to permit the pushing of the button out of said hole by manual pressure on said button and the flat side of each channel shaped arm and the flat side of each extension forming the top of the hanger surface, each of said holes being circular and said button being generally cylindrical to fill the adjacent hole.
