I Application filed .Tune 28, 1819. Serial No. 306,015.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Isanone Donens'rnm, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful ln'iprovements in Garment-Hangers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in garment hangers, particularly adapted, though not necessarily limited in its use for supporting ladies thin and flimsy skirts, and one of the objects of the invention is to provide an improved hanger of this char-- acter having a series of flexible teeth 01' proj ections extending above and across the top of the hanger, and which teeth point inwardly and are adapted to be engaged by the garment so that in the event the garment should be accidentally detached from one end of the hanger, the flexible teeth will form extended frictional surfaces with which the garment prevent the garment from droppingofl' of the hanger, and at the same time the flexible teeth will not injure a garment or skirt of the most delicate fiber.
To the attainment of these ends and the accomplishment of other new and useful obappear, the invention consists in the features of novelty in substantially the construction, combination and arrangement of the several parts hereinafter more fully described and claimed and in which:
Figure 1 is a side elevation of this improved hanger showing in. dotted lines, a ski rt supported thereby.
Fig. 2 is a detail to plan View of one end of the hanger showing the series of flexible teeth.
Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the hanger showing the manner in which a skirt which hasbeen detached from one end will be held from dropping off of the hanger.
W The hanger It) may be of any desired size and configuration and constructed of any suitable material, and is'provided with the usual su porting hook or loop 11 intermediate 1ts. ends. The upper surface 12 of the hanger at any point, preferably adjacent the ends 13, is cut away or recessed as at it and arranged within these recesses are elements 15 constructed of any suitable flexible material. and may be held or suitable inansuch asrubber or the like, in position in any desired ner. These elements 15 are preferably of a size in-cross section so as to stand flush with the sides of the body of the hanger, and the upper surfaces of the elements are shaped to form teeth 16 extending transversely of the hanger and are spaced from each other in a direction lengthwise of the hanger. The teeth project for any desired distance above the upper surface 12 of the hanger body 10 and the series of teeth adjacent. the respective ends of the hanger extend or point inwardly or in a general direction toward the o posite end of the hanger.
It will be t us seen that When a garment is in place upon the hanger, the teeth will not interfere with the garment and being flexible will not injure a garment of the finest texture.
.Should the ally detached the tendency garment G become accidentfrom one end of the hanger, of the garment would he to slip from the other end of the hanger and drop upon the floor. The flexible teeth, however, rojecting above the top of the hanger, W1 1 be engaged by the garment and a frictional gripplng will be produced between the teeth and garment and the latter will be retained upon the hanger as shown in Fig. 3 until lifted therefrom. The spaced teeth 16 present an undulated surface to the garment above the top Surface 12 of the hanger body 10. While the preferred form of construction has been herein shown and described, it is tobe, understood that many changes may be made therein, and the mode of securing the friction teeth or projections in position may be varied without departing from the spirit of this invention.
What is claimed as new is:
l. A garment hanger embodying a body having a sup ortin surface, and a series of clearly de ned fl exible teeth projecting above the said surface adjacent each end thereof, said teeth being spaced in a direction lengthwise of the said surface and parallel, each of the teeth extending substantially entirely across and projecting above the said surface to have frlctional Patented Nov. 18, 1919.
2. A garment hanger embodying a body enter.
3. A garment hanger embodying a body having a supporting surface and provided with a recess opening through said surface adjacent each end thereof, an element seated and secured Within each the recesses, and clearly defined fiexibleteeth carried by each of the elements and projecting above the said surface and adapted to have frictional engagement with the material of a garment for retaining the garment upon one end of the hanger when the garment has become detached from the other end of the hanger,
each of the said teeth on each of the ele-' ments extending entirely across the supporting surface, being spaced in a direction lengthwise of the said surface, substantially parallel and inclining inwardly toward the center of the hanger from the respective ends thereof.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification on this 20th day -of June, A. D. 1.919.
