j Application filed May 31, 1919. "Serial No. 300,943."
To all whom-it may concern:
citizenof Russia, and a resident of the :city
of New York, borough of Brooklyn, in-the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Hat-and Coat Rack, of which the following is a full,- clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to hat and coat racks and has particular reference to certain details of construction whereby such devices are rendered more convenient as well as being neater in appearance than similar devices heretofore made.
. A further object of the invention is to provide a novel form of supporting arm for the accommodation of hats, coats, or other garments, and having special facilities for supporting a mirror.
With the foregoing and other objects in view the invention consists in the arrangement .and combination of partshereinafter described and claimed, and while the invention is not restricted to the exact details of construction disclosed or suggested herein, still for the purpose of illustrating a practical embodiment thereof reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which like reference characters designate the same parts in the several views, and in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation. Fig. 2 is a front elevation. Fig. 3 is a vertical transverse sectional detail on the line 33 of Fig. 1; and
Fig. 4 is a detail view of one of the socket pieces.
Referring now more specifically to the drawings 1 show a bracket 10 adapted to be secured fiat against a wall or other verti-. cal support by means of screws or the like passing through holes 11. This bracket is made of any suitable design and is provided on its front face with a pair of knuckles 12 having vertical alined bearin holes.
The next main feature 0 the rack consists of an arm 13 made preferably of a single piece of rod metal bent into two parallel upper and lower members 13? and 13 respectively and having therefore a loop or crotch portion 14 at its outer end and oppositely directed journal portions 15 fitted in the alined holes of the knuckles 12. By virtue of the elasticity of the rod metal fromwhich the arm 13 is made the bearing portions 15 are adapted to be projected upward and downward away from each other i into Said holes. are. this arm is self I Be it known that I, BERNA D BRAGER, a
retained in the *knuckles for practical purposes, but may be removed therefroniwithout disturbing the bracket 10 at any deand parallel flanges 21. The clip is fixed rigidly to the back of the mirror and constitutes a permanent part thereof. The width of the clip from the'back of the mirror to the flanges 21 is practically the same as the diameter of the material from which the arm 13 is made, but irrespective of the precise relative sizes of these parts the flanges 21 are designed to slip snugly downward along the kerfs '16 while the back of the mirror slides close along the front end of the crotch portion of the arm. Again, the space between the flanges is exactly equal to the space between the bottoms of the kerfs and consequently is less than the diameter of the lower portion 13" of the arm which constitutes a positive stop for the bot tom of the clip, while the top of the clip rests upon the upper portion 13 making a neat and reliable support for the mirror but permitting it to be removed by upward displacement when desired.
Fitted or adjusted along the upper portionlld of the arm are any suitable number of socket pieces 22 shown as two in number,
one close back of the mirror, and the other farther back toward the wall. As shown in detail in Fig. 4 each of these socket pieces 22 has a horizontal hole 23 through which the arm projects and also is provided .with
a pairof parallel vertical sockets 24 receiving alike number of horns 25, two for each socket piece. The inner or lower ends of the horns are fitted into the sockets 24 providing for rotation around the vertical axes thereof so that the horns of each pair may lie in the same plane or otherwise-for convenience. Obviously these horns constitute a hanger members for hats or other garments and if the arm 13 be swung around the axis of the knuckles 12 thehorns may likewise .1
be turned around their axes so as to enable the arm to be swung close against the wall vice is to be taken or other support. Furthermore the horns may be lifted out of the sockets if the deapart for storage or transportation;
I claim: p
1. The herein described hat and coat rack comprising a bracket, an arm connected to the bracket and extending outward therefrom, said arm being made of rod metal and havingits outer end provided with a pair of vertical kerfs, a mirror having on its back an open bottomed clip with a pair of parallel flanges along its back portion slidably fitted in said kerfs while the movement of the mirror and clip downward is limited by striking against the 'arinQ.
2.111 a hat and coat rack,- the combination of a stationary support, an arm connected thereto andrprojecting outward therefrom, said arm being madeof rod metal bent upon itself forming two parallel portions connected by a crotch'having a short vertical portion connected to the paral1el-por tions by. short bends, the upper bend being provided with a pair of vertical kerfs on its sides, and a mirror detachably supported BERNARD B AGER. p
