May 1, 1962 J. w. ROBERTS DISPLAY HANGER FOR NECKTIES Filed March 15, 1959 b J k mvrsiromi a 11 er 3 16 BY F X7. 71% flzlarneys United States Patent 3,032,242 DISPLAY HANGER FOR NECKTIES John W. Roberts, Chicago, Ill., assignor to Sears, Roebuck and Co., Chicago, Ill., a corporation of New York Filed Mar. 13, 1959, Ser. No. 799,339 3 Claims. (Cl. 223-87) My invention relates to display hangers for supporting and displaying neckties and the like.
One of the objects of my invention is the provision of an improved hanger for neckties and the like formed of a single piece of suitable material and comprising a hook portion and a supporting or clamping portion affording suspension of a necktie in compacted desirable condition for display.
Another object of my invention is the provision of a hanger of the foregoing character which is economical to manufacture and efficient in operation.
Other and further objects and advantages of my invention will become apparent from the following description when considered in connection with the accompanying drawings in which:
FIG. 1 is a front elevational view of a hanger in accordance with my invention and showing a necktie suspended therefrom;
FIG. 2 is a plan view of my invention before folding of the same;
FIG. 3 is an elevational view illustrating the first operation in applying my invention to a necktie;
FIG. 4 is a perspective view showing an intermediate step in applying my invention to a necktie;
FIG. 5 is a side elevational view showing my invention applied to a necktie just prior to the final closing position;
FIG. 6 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 66 of FIG. 1;
FIG. 7 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 7-7 of FIG. 3;
FIG. 8 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 88 of FIG. 1; and
FIG. 9 is a side elevational view of a modified embodiment of my invention.
Referring to the drawings and particularly to FIG. 2, my invention comprises a member 10 formed of suitable material such as relatively stiff paper, fiber, sheet plastic or sheet metal and shaped substantially as is illustrated in FIG. 2. The said member is formed as by die cutting and includes a plurality of sections 11, 12, 13 and 14 defined by fold lines indicated by the broken lines 16-, 17 and 18. The intermediate sections 12 and 13 are generally rectangular and are foldable towards each other along a center fold line 17. In the upper portions of said sections is stamped an opening 19 shaped substantially like that illustrated in FIG. 2. The opening 19 is symmetrical with respect to the fold line 17 and affords a hook formation when the sections 12 and 13 are folded upon each other, as illustrated in FIG. 1, to engage an element of a rack or other suitable supporting means. Extending laterally from the sections 12 and 13 are sections 11 and 14 respectively. As will be seen clearly in FIG. 2, the upper edges 21 and 22 of the sections 11 and 14 terminate below the lower edge of opening 19. The section 11 is generally rectangular in form and is foldable along line 16 which is slit upwardly a short distance from the bottom edge as at 23. The section 14 is foldable along fold line 18 and is slit laterally angularly along line 24. The said slit line divides the section 14 into two portions, the lower portion having edges tapering towards the outer edge and affording a locking tab 14a.
To apply my invention to a necktie indicated generally by the numeral 26, the necktie is first preferably folded upon itself substantially medially of its length and is then opened up as illustrated in FIG. 3 to present the under surface of the necktie upwardly. The necktie is then laid upon the member 14) with the outer surfaces of necktie contiguous to respective sections 12 and 13. For convenience in applying the member 10 to the necktie 26, the bight portion of the necktie should extend above the member 10 as illustrated in FIG. 3. The outer sections 11 and 14 are then folded inwardly along lines 16 and 18 respectively to overlie respective portions of the necktie as illustrated in FIGS. 3 and 7. The member 10 is then folded along the center line 17 so that the sections 11 and 14 are in contiguous relation substantially as illustrated in FIGS. 5 and 8. The tab 14a is then inserted in the slit 23 to lock the sections together. As a final operation the necktie 26 is pulled downwardly in relation to the member 10 so that the necktie engages the upper edges 21 and 22 of sections 11 and 14 along fold line 27 as viewed in FIG. 6. It will be apparent that by reason of the folding of the necktie as above described, the necktie itself will serve to maintain the sections 11 and 14 in folded and contiguous relation. The tab 14a engaged in the slit 23 however affords additional securement for retaining member 10 in locked position.
It will be understood that the slit 23 may be placed in section 12 so that it is slightly to the right of the position illustrated in FIG. 2, as indicated by the broken line 23a.
In the modified embodiment illustrated in FIG. 9 a member is provided and is identical to member 10 except that the slit 23 is omitted. The locking tab 114a is covered on its inner surface with a pressure sensitive adhesive and after the member 110 is applied to a necktie, the locking tab is folded over to overlie the outer surface of section 112 in the manner illustrated in FIG. 9 thereby locking the sections together.
In another modified embodiment not specifically illustrated but which should be clearly apparent, a member identical to that illustrated in FIG. 2 is provided but with the slits 23 and 24 eliminated. A pressure-sensitive adhesive is applied to one or both of the outer surfaces of sections 11 and 14. When said surfaces are folded into confronting relation as in FIG. 8, the adhesive serves to secure the sections together.
It will be apparent that with my invention a plurality of neckties may be individually supported from a suitable rack for proper display and that any single necktie may be easily removed from the rack without disturbing or disarranging other neckties in the display.
Various changes coming within the spirit of my invention may suggest themselves to those skilled in the art. Hence, I do not wish to be limited to the specific embodiments shown and described or uses mentioned, but intend the same to be merely exemplary, the scope of my invention being limited only by the appended claims.
I claim:
1. A necktie display support of the type described formed of a sheet of flexible material divided by parallel fold lines into four sections foldable one upon another, the two intermediate sections being substantially iden tical and having a cutout in the upper portion thereof, said cutout being symmetrical relative to a center fold line and affording a hook portion when said intermediate sections are in folded relation, the two outer sections being of less height than said intermediate sections with the upper edges of said outer sections being below said outout, said outer sections being foldable inwardly whereby different portions of a necktie are received between corresponding intermediate and outer sections, said necktie when folded upon itself and positioned with the fold line in engagement with the upper edges of said outer sections when the same are in folded contiguous relation retaining all of said sections in folded condition.
2. The invention as defined in claim 1 in which one of the intermediate sections has a slit and the opposite outer section is transversely slit to afford a tab portion insertable in said slit.
3. The invention as defined in claim 1 in which one of the outer sections is transversely slit to afford a tab portion arranged to be adhesively secured to the opposite intermediate section.
