Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. '7, 1920.

Application filed January 17, 1920. Serial No. 352.156.

T 0 all whom it may concern Be it known that I, RODERICK DAREY MATHESON, a subject of the King of Great Britain, and residing'at 430 St. Catherine street Vest, in the city and district of Montreal, in the Province of Quebec, in the Dominion of Canada, have invented a new and useful Garment-Hanging Equipment, of which the following is the specification.

The invention relates to garment hanging equipments, as described in the present specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawings that form part of the same.

The invention consists essentially in the form of bracket employed, whereby the complete hanging equipment can be transported from place to place and installed with great facility.

The objects of the invention are to furnish a simple, cheap and efiicient hanging equipment of great service to persons moving about frequently in their pursuits; to eliminate all complications in such devices; to bring the hanging equipment within the reach of all consumers; and generally to provide a serviceable and durable travelers article for maintaining wearing apparel in good condition. I

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device.

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the hanger, showing its application.

Like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in each figure.

Referring to the drawings, the numeral 1 indicates a bar of wood or other suitable material, preferably rounded ofi on the top thereof, and having adjacent to its outer end the cord hole 2. The hinge 3 is secured to the flattened end portion 4=of the bar 1 adjacent to the inner extremity of said bar, but leaving sufficient space therebehind for the width of the vertical bar 5, which is adapted to the other leaf of the hinge 3 and rests end down the flat portion 4: of the bar 1.

The vertical bar 5 is formed with the cord hole 6 and the cord 7 joins the bar 1 to the bar 5, said cord being looped through the hole 2 and tied or otherwise fastened. The fiat bar 5" rests against the wall.

Hook 8 is rigidly secured to the upper end of the vertical bar 5 on the outer surface thereof and is formed at one end very similar to the well known flat picture hooks and is adapted to fit over a molding 9, as shown in Fig. 2.

The garment hanger proper 10, made in any of the many forms, is hooked on to the bar 1 and the garments are hung on said hanger. Of course many hangers may be used and they may be or trousers, coats, skirts, blouses or any garment which a traveler or lodger or other resident may desire to keep in good condition during a temporary or longer stay at any place, also it may be suspended through the hole 12.

In use its simplicity is its chief recommendation, for it is cheap to produce and very efficient in regard to its uses and it will readily be seen that it may be folded up and placed in a trunk or bag and carried anywhere, and the hook being of a form that will readily grip any projection, the hanging equipment may be suspended from a picture molding or other suitable projection from a wall or ceiling, therefore travelers can use the hanging equipment immediately they arrive at a hotel or even during their journey by rail or boat, and lodgers whether temporary or permanent, can also untilize the hanging equipment with equal facility, as well as those permanently domiciled in any place.

Minor changes may be made in the construction of this hanging equipment without departing from the spirit of the invention, and so long as these changes are within the scope of the claim for novelty following, the protection accorded shall not be invalidated.

What I claim is In a collapsible garment hanger a horizontal bar adapted to stand out straight from the wall and adapted to carry a skirt, coat or trousers hanger and abut the wall, a horizontal bar adapted to abut the wall and to rest on the aforesaid horizontal bar and a vertical bar also abutting the wall and rigidly secured to the second horizontal bar in the center thereof and hinged to the first horizontal bar and having means at the upper end for suspending it to the wall, said hinge allowing said standing outbar to extend under said second horizontal bar in the open position of the hanger.

Signed at the city of Montreal, in the Province of Quebec, in the Dominion of Canada, this 12th day of January, 1920.
