, Application as Nor/"embers, 192s. SeriaINo. 146,218,

' the garment may be raised or lowered to the desired height so that the garment will be supported above the floor surface.

A further and important object is to provide an adjustable garment hanger wherein r the parts are so constructed and co-related as to permit of the adjustment of the hanger without requiring the releasing of any bolts, clamps, or other securing means. Other objects will become apparent as the nature of the invention is better under-' stood, the same comprising the novel form, combination, and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawing and claimed; 3

In the drawing wherein like reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views Figure l is a front elevation of a garment hanger constructed in accordance with the present invention.

Figure 2 is an edge elevation thereof.

Figure 3 is an enlarged fragmentary longitudinal section taken substantially upon the line 33 of Figure 2, and

Figure 4 is a transverse section taken substantially-upon the line 4l-t of Figure 3 looking downwardly in the direction of the arrows.

Now having particular reference to the 4o drawing, our novel garment hanger consists of a suitable supporting base 5 from the center of which projects a vertical post 6 that is longitudinally slotted throughoutsubstantially its entire area as indicated at 7 by reason of a pair of screws or other fas- 9 teners 12-12.

D po ed b t een t e fla l k ers 1 19.

One side of this post (i is formed with transat the, upper ends thereof is an insert bar '13 through the projecting end of which is attached acurved cross piece let for providing a coat hanger. V Secured to the outermost flat like bar 10 in cross relation therewith is a' suitable form of dress or trouser hangerz lo.

Upon the lower free end of the inner fiat likG bar 1011s seourcda U-shaped bracket 16,

theside arms; of which engage along the opposite sides of the vertical post 6, and are interconnected by a cross bolt 17' for en gagcment within a predetermined one of the notches 803: said post 6 for maintaining the hanger carrying unit in predetermined elevated position. I As indicated in FigureZ. the edges of the notches 8 are rounded so that the cross bolt 17 may be forcibly moved out of the various notches by pulling or pushing upon the hanger carrying unit. The bars 101O are of strong but flexible material so as to permit the lower end of the.

cross bolt carrying bar to spring outwardly when said bolt is moved outwardly of the various slots, but to normally maintain the bolt in the desired slot after the hanger carrying unithas been adjusted to the proper position.

Upon the outer sides of the vertical post 6 at the upper end thereof are cross plates 18-18 that are interconnected by a bolt 19, the'ends of these cross plates engaging the edges of the flat-like bars 101O so as to serve as a guide for these bars when the garment hanger unit is being raised and lowered. I I

It will thus be seen that we have provided a highly novel, simple, and efiicient garment hanger that is well adapted for all the purposes heretofore mentioned, and even though we have herein shown and described the invention as consisting of certain detail structural elements, it is nevertheless to be understood that some changes may be made therein without affecting the spirit and scope ofthe appended claims. 7

Having thus described the invention, what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. In a garmcnt'hanger of the character described, a base unit, a post member rising vertically from the base, and having cross notchesupon one face thereof in vertically spaced relation, a hanger attached unit vertically slidably associated with said -post and consisting of a pair of flat-like bars upon the f nt and real-side t the po t, m ans inter connecting said bars adjacent the lower end thereof so as to permit the lower end of the bar at the side of thepost provided with the notches to spring outwardly, means carried by the lower end of said bar for selective engagement within any one of the post notches scribed a suooortin base a 30st extending upwardly therefrom and being longitudinally slotted throughout substantially its entire length, said post being provided with vertically spaced transverse notches in the rear face thereof, a hanger attached unit vert'cally slidably associated with the post and including a' bar slidable within the slot formed in the post, a pair of flat like strips disposed upon the front and rear sides of the post, a bolt extending through the strip and the bar for securing the same together, the lower portion of the front strip being rigidly secured to the lower portion of the slidable bar, said strips fixedly engaging the front and rear faces of the post and adapted for vertical slidable movement thereon, the lowor end of the rear strip being free, means carried thereby for normal engagement with one of the notches in the inner face of the post for maintaining the hanger carrying unitin any predetermined vertically adjusted position on the post, and means at the outer sides of the vertical post at the upper end thereof for overlapping the adjacent edges of the strips for assisting in the guiding of the sliding unit with respect to the stationary post.

In testimony whereof we aiiiX our signatures.
