This invention relates to a necktie holder of the portable type adapted to be hung upon a wall or other suitable support and comprising a supporting bar of any suitable length carrying a multiplicity of dowels, for supporting the neckties and a corresponding number of leaf springs for retaining the neckties 'upon the dowels against accidental displacement.
These dowels are secured at one end'in' block or'bar to project uniform distances therefromin parallel spaced relation and. the main object of the present invention is to enable the springs to be inserted with their respective dowels into the corresponding sockets and to be firmly retained therein against accidental withdrawal or turning movement so that each dowel and its spring may be operatively secured to the block in one operation.
Another object'is to extend the springs along the upper side of the dowels to "permit a relatively large number .of the latter with their springs to be attached to the bar in more compact relation than has heretofore been practised and at the same permitting ing a more convenient means for the neckties to be placed upon and removed from the dowels than practised.
That is, by arranging has heretofore been the springs above finger space is left between the dowels and to permit the neckties to be inserted-upon and removed from the dowels withthe fingers of one hand.
. Other objects and uses relating to specificparts of the device" will be brought out in the'following description. In the drawings Figure 1 is a perspective view of a-necktie holder embodying the various features of my invention.
Figure 2 is an enlarged tional view taken in the plane transverse secof hue 2-2,
' Figure 1, showing also a portion of a wall is hung.
upon which the device device comprises a As illustrated, this laterally elongated substantially rectangular base block'or lengthwise row of arranged in parallel spaced relation uniform distances apart-for receiving one end of acorresponding number of cylindrical dowels 3 and leaf s rings v The cylindrica openings or sockets -2 bar .--1-- having 'a central .inner ends of cylindrical sockets -2- block '1 to afford relatively long bearings I for the dowels -3- and springs The dowels -3- extend entirely through their respective sockets -2- and project forwardly beyond one of the end faces of the block -1- a sufficient distance to properly support the neckties as -A- which are looped and inserted over the free ends of the dowels as shown by dotted lines in. Figures l and 2, said dowels being preferably of uniform diameter from end to end so that stock doweling may be'used by cutting-to the desired length without further treatment except the usual paint or varnish finish.
The springs portion of the lengths of their respective dowels adjacent the upper: sides thereof and are made of relatively thin spring metal with their inner ends resting fiatwise'upon the periphery of-the portions of the dowels enteringthe sockets -2 so as to enterthe sockets with the dowels.
' r The upper sides of the'inner ends of the dowels are provided-with notches --5 movement while the dowels with the springs thereon are being driven into their respective sockets -2-.
As previously are made 'cyli drical by a suitable boring -4 extend along the major v 'against relative endwise stated, the I sockets -2'- 2 but owing tothe factthat tll sprin s 4- are relatively.
jacent the upper sides 'of the dowels it is found practicable to drivethe dowels with the springs thereon into the sockets, particularly when the shoulders 6- are engaged in the notches the springs form their own seats or slightly enlarge the adjacent walls of the sockets and these enlargements serve thin and lie closely adi -5- and by so doing the to hold the springs against turning move- .ment and also assist in wedging the dowels in their respective sockets.
It is, of course, unde dowels with the-springs thereon are inserte d that when the 1 into the sockets in the manner described the engagement of the shoulders respective notches --5- firmly hold the springs against ontward displacement.
- The portions of the springs -.'4-* adjacent the front face of the block are arched upwardly, as shown' 'moreclearly in Figure --6.- in their llo' 4, whilethe remaining outer ends are arched" face of the bar -1-' downwardly v and tensioned against the upper facesof the correspondingdowels, the upper ends of said springs being deflected up- .wardly at 7' in slightly spaced relation to the adjacent portions vofthe dowel'to'permit-the folded parts of the necktie to be readily slipped in between the free ends of the springs and upper faces of the dowels.
The spaces between the dowelsflwhile sufficiently closeto permit the use of arelative- A ly large-number thereof within a com aratively small space, are nevertheless cient to receive the fingers of the operator between i themthus the folded ties'to be placed over and upon the dowels and under their respective with one hand:
the upper e e of the ihar'--1 for attachmentto support hooks which, in turn, may be secured to an upright wall -B or other suitable support.
The eyes +8- are preferably arranged a forwardly from the back Suitable 3 screws 8 are secured to man ac to permit said bar to lie'flatw'ise as inst the wall when the eyes are supporte What I claim is: i A necktie holder comprising a laterally elongated bar having a multiplicity of openings therethrough in parallel spaced relation and a corresponding number of dowel pins and relatively thin flat springs resting on theupper faces thereof, said dowel pins and springs having corresponding ends inserted into Said sockets and their opposite ends projecting outwardly beyond'the front face of the bar, the portions of the dowel with their respective hooks pins and springs within the sockets being provided respectively. with notches and shoulders, said shoulders entering their res ective notches to hold the springs against en wise displacement relatively to the dowel P .v z
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 10th day of March, 1928.
