May 3, 1966 B. ZUCKERMAN I GARMENT SUPPORT MEANS Filed May 3.- 1965 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 FIG-7 INVENTOR BENJAMIN ZUCKERMAN B Y HIS ATTORNEY FIG?) United States Patent 3,249,270 GARMENT SUPPORT MEANS Benjamin Zuckerman, New York, N.Y assignor to Mister Hanger, Inc., New York, N.Y., a corporation of New York Filed May 3, 1965, Ser. No. 452,727 9 Claims. (Cl. 223-91) This invention relates to a garment support and more particularly to a hanger which will support and display waisted garments having an elasticized portion.

Heretofore when manufacturers shipped garments prehung the support of these garments and their attractive display had presented many problems. In general it has been difiicult to support and display a plurality of ga-rments on one hanger because no hanger was provided which would allow the firm holding of all the garments in their desired relationship, especially when being shipped.

For example, if it were necessary to support an upper garment and pants on one hanger the pants were generally wrapped around the hanger by inserting the hanger into the pants. With this arrangement, the pants more often than not, would slide off the-cross bar to the floor unless pinned or clipped with some clamping or holding device to prevent the garment from falling off the horizontal bar. In so doing the garment had to be raised so that rufiles and/ or designs were not equally visible for proper display.

Even more important the waisted garments, many of which are elasticized, when in an undistended position, could not provide an attractive display because the pants or trousers were allowed to gather thereby preventing the garment from being presented in an unwrinkled fashion.

Further, the upper garments such as blouses, skirts and the like which were held in place on the shoulders of the hangers, and particularly blouses having wide scoop necks, often would shift 01f center on the hanger and would slide to the fioor or become misshapen because there was no means available which would provide a firm hold thereon andyet provide for an uninhibited display In this connection, straight pins were often used to hold the upper garment in place on the shoulder of the hanger. However, the use of the pins was found to be repugnant both, to the shipper and to the buying public because holes were left in the upper garments which caused the upper garment to be damaged and the pins would often cause injury to the persons handling the pinned garment.

Further, use of pins or clips with pointed gripping edges when used to hold infants rubberized pants or plasticized pants caused the puncturing of the waterproof lining thereby damaging the garment.

It is the general object of the present invention to avoid and overcome the foregoing and other difiiculties of and objections to prior art practices by the provision of a sturdy and inexpensive garment support.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a garment support which will provide a firm support for a plurality of garments.

Yet another object of the present invention is to provide a garment support which will firmly support a plurality of garments and provide an attractive display of the garments.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a garment support which will prevent pants, panties or similar waisted garments from sliding off their support.

Still another object of the present invention is to provide a garment support which will firmly support a plurality of waisted garments and hold the garments with a holding means which is incorporated in the garment support.

Yet a further object of the present invention is to provide a garment support which will allow the support and display of elasticized garments.

Still a further object of the present invention is to provide a support for waisted garments and other garments having an elasticized waistband.

The aforesaid objects of the present invention, and other objects which will become apparent as the description proceeds, are achieved by providing 'a garment support which has a pair of transversely extending shoulders, a hook in communication with said transversely extending shoulders for connection to a display bar, side walls extending downwardly from said transversely extending shoulders, said side walls being provided with an upper portion and a lower portion, a plurality waistband support means disposed on said side walls for supporting the waistbands of a garment, first and second horizontal reinforcing struts connected between the side walls, a waistband holding means disposed on said first horizontal reinforcing strut around which the waistband of a garment may be twisted and a plurality of stops disposed on said shoulders and said'first and second horizontal reinforcing struts to prevent shifts of garments when the garments are held in place by a clamping means.

For a better understanding of the present invention reference shoulld be had to the accompanying drawings,

wherein like numerals of reference indicate similar parts throughout the several views and wherein:

Although the principles of the present invention are broadly applicable to a garment support means, the present invention is particularly adapted to hangers and hanger forms for supporting waisted garments, especially elasticized waisted garments and hence it has been so illustrated and will be so described. I

With specific reference to the form of the present invention illustrated in the drawings, and referring particularly to FIGURE 1, a garment support means is indicated generally by the reference numeral 10. Structurally the garment support means 10 is generally a continuously constructed hollow centered frame 12 made of material such as plastic, wood, wire or the like.

As'shown in FIGURE 1 the hollow centered frame is provided with a pair transverse shoulders 14 which slope downwardly from the center portion 16 of the top 18 of the frame 12. In order to hang the garment support from a display bar, clothes rack or hook (not shown) the center portion 16 of the top 18 of the frame 12 may be provided with an upwardly projecting holding means or hook 20 which may be placed over a display bar 24 or similar support member ona rack (not shown). The inner surface of the hook 20 may be provided with a plurality of small protrusions 22 so that there may be less functional contact between the curved surface 26 of the hook 2t} and the display bar (not shown) on which it may be hung. It should be noted that only the small protrusions 22 will be in contact with the display bar so that minimal frictional engagement is experienced if it is desired to slide the garment support means 10 to Varying positions on the display bar (not shown).

The frame 12 may be provided with side walls 28. Each side wall 28 may be provided with an upper portion 30 which tapers inwardly from the outer extremities of the transverse shoulder 14 and a lower portion 32 which flares outwardly to the bottom wall 34 of the frame 12. For the purpose of providing a sturdy garment support 10, reinforcing struts 36 are provided which may be connected between the transverse shoulders 14 and the upper portions 30 of the side walls 28. Further, a first horizontal reinforcing strut 38, and a second horizontal reinforcing strut 40 may be provided which run horizontally across the lower portion 42 of the frame 12 thereby adding greater structural strength to the overall garment support 10.

As shown in FIGURE 2 the general cross sectional shape of the frame 12 may be seen to have a relatively broad top section 44 and a thinner longitudinal rib por- At the junction of the upper portion 30 and lower portion 32 of the side walls 28 there is formed a narrow Waistband support means 58. The purpose of the narrow waistband support means 58 will be more fully described as the description proceeds.

The lower portion 42 of the frame 12 has dis-posed thereon a plurality of waistband support means 60. That is, the outwardly flared lower portions 32 of the side walls 28 are provided with indentations or notches 62, each notch 62 having its lower portion 64 formed such that an upwardly extending projection 66 is created. As shown in FIGURE 1 these notches 62 are disposed opposite one to the other on each side wall 32 so that a Waistband 68 of a waisted. garment may be engaged in the oppositely disposed notches 62 thereby stretching the waistband 68 so that the waistband 68 will be held in place, under tension, in the indentations 62. effect may occur at the first holding means 58. The projection 66 may act as a means for hooking beneath the waistband 68-of the waisted garment so that the waisted garment may not be pulled downwardly out of the notches 62. The outwardly flared lower portion 32 of the side walls 28 are thus particularly made to accommodate varying sized elasticized waistband 68 of waisted garment or the garments to be supported. It may further be seen that the waistband support means 60 may be disposed in various positions in the lower portion 42 of the frame 12, although only two of such waistband tion 46. The purpose of this generally T shaped cross sectional construction will be more particularly treated as the description proceeds.

In order to position an upper garment, such as a dress,

blouse or like garments without misshaping the garment or having the upper garment shift off center of the support means 18,- the transverse shoulders 14 slope downwardly toward their outer extremities in substantially the same slope as that of an individuals shoulders. Of course, an upper garment may rest in this position and thereby be supported in the manner well known to those skilled in the art', however, in order to provide a means for holding the upper garment in a relatively fixed position so thatit may not be jostled loose from its position, a clamp means or clip 48 may be provided. As shown in FIG- URE 5 the clip '48 may be generally shaped as an inverted U having its straight legs 50 turned inwardly and upwardly toward the inner curved portion 52 of the clip 46. The clip 48 may be made of resilient material such as plastic or the like, such that the straight legs 50 may be separated with relative ease. As shown in FIGURE 6 the clip 48 may be forced over the broad top section 44 of the transverse shoulders 14 such that the upward-1y turned legs 50 of the clip 48 may straddle the longitudinal rib 46 and if a garment were disposed on the garment support means 10, the clip 48 may be utilized to position the garment properly in the center, thereby preventing garments and especially wide neck garments from falling from the garment support means 10.

As shown in FIGURE 1 the transverse shoulders 14 and the reinforcing struts 38 and 40 are provided with small vertical ribs 54. The vertical ribs 54 generally run from the broad top section 44 of the shoulders 14 or reinforcing struts 38, 40 adjacent the longitudinal rib portion 46 thereby forming a plurality of stops 56. The clip 48 may, through transporting and handling, shift along the shoulder 14 or reinforcing struts 38, 49, however, the stops 56 .will limit the excursion thereby preventing excessive shifting so that the upper garments may be prevented from shifting so that the upper garments may be prevented from shifting appreciably off center of the garment support means 10.

support means 60 are shown.

It may be recognized that a waisted garment, particularly those having an elasticized waistband 68 may be positioned at various levels on the lower portion 42 of the support means 10 thereby lending itself to being displayed in varied positions or in accordance with its size.

Another convenient manner of supportinga garment having a waistband, particularly an elasticized waistband 68, may be accomplished by providing a'waistband holding means in the form of a pair of legs 70 extending downwardly from the first horizontal reinforcing strut 38 and providing a lateral portion 72 at the bottomof each leg 70. With this disposition of the legs 70 if a waisted garment, particularly with an elasticized waistband 68, having its elasticized waistband 68 in its unexpanded condition larger than the width of the outwardly flared lower portion 42 of the support means 10, the waistband 68 may be wrapped about the legs 70, as shown in FIGURES 4 and 7. In this manner the Waistband 68 will be prevented from sliding over the lower portion 42 of the support means 10 because of its wrapped condition and will further be prevented from sliding downwardly because the lateral portions 72 of the legs 78 which may be hooked under the waistband 68. Under normal conditions, manufacturers shipping garments pre-hung would be required to pin or clip the waisted garment, however such pinning does not position the garment. It will be recognized that the mere pinning orvclipping will not prevent the same from shifting, however, if the Waistband 68 is twisted about the legs 70, shifting would be impossible.

Yet another convenient manner of supporting trousers may be provided in that they may be folded in half (in the customary fashion) across either the first 38 or second 40 horizontal reinforcing struts in the lower portion 42 of the support means 10 or across the bottom wall 34 and yet may be prevented from sliding off or becoming dislodged therefrom. As shown in FIGURE 1, the second reinforcing strut 40 and the bottom wall 34 of the support means 10 may be provided with a pair of abutment means '74, two on each, and being in spaced relationship one to the other. It should be noted at thispoint that the cross 1 sectional area of the reinforcing struts 38 and 4t), and the bottom wall 34 are, as shown in FIGURE 1, T shaped as previously described in relation to the transverse shoulder 14. When a pair of trousers are folded over either reinforcing strut 38 or 40, or over the bottom wall 34 the larger clip 48 maybe snapped over the folded This same trouser (as shown in FIGURE 1) thereby locking the trousers in place over the strut 40 or wall 34 so that they may not slide off or be pulled off without first removing the clip 48'. The space relationship of the abutment means 74 provides an area 76 between which the clip 48 may slide, since it is obvious, through the handling of the garment support 10, there might occur ofi center excursion along the strut 40 or wall 34 causing improper display positioning. The disposition and structure of each of the abutment means 74 blocks the strut 40 or the bottom wall 34 so that the clip 48' (holding the trousers thereto) will not be able to move, laterally, more than the area 76 between the abutment means 74. The larger clips 46' are usually used in connection with trousers or the like because more material is disposed over the strut or wall. It may be seen, however, that stops 56 are provided in the event small clips 48 are used.

In operation the garment support means may be suspended from a display bar, rod or hook (not shown) by means of the hook 20. For simplicity of description we may presume that a childs outfit including an upper garment, diaper pants or a pair of trousers are to be supported and displayed. The upper garment may be placed over the pair of transverse shoulders 14 in a well known manner such that the upper garment may be supported, in an unwrinkled condition, by the transverse shoulders 14. The elasticized waistband of the trousers are stretched over the lower portion 42 of the garment support means 10 and fitted into the waistband support means 60 (notches 62) such that waistband 68 is held under tension (because of its expanded condition) and is prevented from being pulled downwardly by the projection 66. Inthis manner the trousers may hang full length from the lower portion 42 of the garment support means 10. The clamp means or clip 48 may be placed over the shoulder of the jacket such that its legs 50 may engage the bottom surface of the broad top section 44 of the transverse shoulder 14 thereby locking the upper garment against movement on the garment support means 10. The plurality of stops 56 further prevent the upper garment from shifting laterally along the transverse shoulders.

If the waistband of the trousers is too large to fit firmly, the waistband support means 58, the waistband 68 may be twisted around the legs 70 of the holding means, as shown in FIGURE 3, and may be held against downward movement by the lateral portion 72 of the legs 70 which may be hooked under the waistband. In this manner the trousers may, once again, be exhibited in their full length.

Yet another means for supporting the trousers is to told them in half, in the well known manner, and lay them across either of the first or second reinforcing struts 38', 40, in the lower portion 42 of the support means 10, or across the bottom wall 34. If the strut 40 or the bottom wall 34 are used the larger clip 48' may be applied to the strut 40 or bottom wall 34 in the area 76 between the abutment means 74 thereby fixing the trousers, to the strut 40 or bottom wall 34, against falling, much the same as the upper garment is held in place.

It will be understood by those skilled in the art that alternatively a hanger of a well known form may be provided with a pair of side walls 28 having an upper portion 30' and a lower portion 32. At the junction of the upper portion 30 and lower portion 32 may be formed a narrowed waistband support means 58. A first horizonal strut 38' may be connected between the narrowed waistband support means 58, The first horizontal strut 38' may be provided with a waistband holding means which comprises a pair of downwardly projecting legs 70', each leg being provided with a lateral portion 72'. In this manner the waistband holding means 70', 72. may be shown to be applicable to many different forms of hangers. The waistband 68 of the garment to be supported after being twisted into the position shown in FIGURES 3 and 7 thereby-providing a firm holding means for trousers,

pants, panties and the like garments whether having an elasticized waistband or not.

It will be recognized by those skilled in the art that the objects of the present invention have been achieved by providing a garment support means 10 which will firmly support a plurality of garments and in an attractive manner display the garments by holding them in a fixed relationship. Further, the garment support means 10 may support elasticized garments while holding the garments against being jostled or dislodged from the support means through handling.

While in accordance with the patent statutes a preferred embodiment of the present invention has been illustrated and described in detail, it is to be particularly understood that the invention is not limited thereto or thereby.
