Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 8, 1914.
Application filed April 8, 1914. .Serial No. 830,341.
To aZZ whom it may concern.
Be it known that we, ERNEST W. Pnnoen,
a citizen of the UnitedStates, and WILLIAM.
M. WELLMANN, a subject of the Emperor of Germany, residing at Detro1t, 111 the county of Wayne and State of Michigan,
have invented certain new and useful Imvide a durable, inexpensive and easily handled garment receptacle or bag that permits of garments or other articles being safely stored, preserved and protected against deterioration or deleterious forces under any climatic conditions.
. A further object of our invention is to provide a bag-like container for garments .having a novel closure that permits of the container being made airtight whereby dlS- infecting and fumigatmg agents can be injected into the container or such agents placed therein without danger of gases or fumes escaping from the container.
With the above and other objects in view, our invention residesin the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter specifically described and then claimed. y 1
Reference will now be had to the drawings, wherein- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a garment receptacle partly broken away; Fig. 2 is an enlarged cross sectional view of the closure of the garment receptacle, and Fig.
same being maintained in shapefor immediate use.
The closed end of the receptacle has central inner and outer reinforcing strips 2 made of leather or a material similar to the receptacle and cemented or otherwiseconnected to the inner and outer sides of thereceptacle. The outer reinforcing strip retains the angle end 3 of a hook or suspens1on member 4 in engagement with the receptacle without perforating the same, and
-said. hook or suspension member permits ofthe receptacle being hung in a closet, upon a rack or from a suitable support. The in- .nerreinforcing strip 2 retains the angle end 5 of a loop or suspension member 6 in engagement with the inner side of the receptacle, without perforating the same, said loop or suspension member 6 permitting of a garment hanger? being placed in the receptacle to support garments S therein. The members 4 and 6 vertically aline whereby the receptacle 1 can be properly balanced relatlvely to a support to maintain the garment wlthin the receptacle in proper shape and form. With the suspension members centrally of the closed end of the receptacle, the walls of the receptacle can be maintained in spaced relation to the contents thereof when the receptacle is made of a suitable material. I
The edges of the receptacle, at the open end thereof, are provided with a continuous case 9 in whichis placed felt 10 or other yieldable or compressible material. The case or cases are preferably upon the inner side of the receptacle and when it is desired to close the same, the open end of the receptacle is flattened and a strip of felt 11 placed between the confronting sides of the case or cases 9, although in some instances the intermediate strip of felt can be dispensed with. Cleats or clamping strips 12 are then placed in engagement with the open end of the receptacle, one of said cleats having socket members 13 and the other cleat set screws 14 adapted to enter the socket members and secure the cleats upon the open end of the receptacle, with the case or cases 9 under compression, thereby providing an air tight closure. The socket members 13 and the'set screws 1. L constitute means for clamping the cleats upon the open end of the receptacle, and it will be noted that by resorting to such means the open end of the receptacle is not perforated, butismain-i tained intact. Adjacent to the open end of the receptacle, a side all thereof has a vpocket or holder 15 for a Vial or small receptacle 16 adapted to contain a disinfecting,--fumigating or deodorizing agent. The receptacle 1, adjacent to the open'endthereof, has an intake connection or nipp1e'17 of that type generally used in connection with pneumatic tires. Detachably connected to the-nipple is a flexible conduit or tube 18,
which can be connected to a compressible bulb, pump or other device 19 whereby ether,
gas or the fumes of a suitable disinfectant orrdeodorant can be injected into the re? ceptacle. j V From the foregoing it willwbeobserved that the receptacle has provision whereby various preservatives or vermin-exterminator-scan be placed-in the receptacle, and with the garment receptacle made of a suitable material it can be easily and quickly placed over a garment or a garment placed therein when it isdesired to use the same,
. and when not in use it can be rolled or aiiaeee tainer having an open end,.cleatsadapted to be clamped inengagement therewith to close the open end 'ofsaid container, and
of said container whereby a Vermin exterminator can be injected in the container.-
2. A garment receptacle comprising an inverted bag, reinforcing members secured to. the closed end thereof, suspension members retained in engagement with said bag by said reinforcing members, a compressible case carried by the edges of said bag at the open end thereof, cleats adapted to be clamped upon the open end of said bag to close the same, and a pocket carried by the inner side of said bag adjacent to the open I end thereof. a
3. A garment receptacle comprising an inverted bag, reinforcing members secured to the closed end thereof, suspension members retained in engagement with said bag by said reinforcing members, a compressible case carried by the edges ofsaid bag at the open end thereof, cleats adapted to be clamped upon the open end of said bag to close the same, a pocket carried by the inner side of said bag adjacent to the open end thereof, and means carried by said bag adj acent to the open end thereof whereby gases can be injected into said bags o In testimony whereof we afiix our signa-v tures in presence of two witnesses.
