Application December 2, 1935, Serial No. 52,609 2 Claims. (01. 226-48) UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE This invention is a device for applying paper bags to garments, and the object of the invention is to provide a device of this character especially designed for use in cleaning, pressing and tailoring establishments to facilitate the placing of a pressed garment in a bag or wrapper of the type now usually used by such business concerns in delivering garments to the customers.
Among the objects of the invention are to provide a device of this character characterized by simplicity of construction, facility of operation and practicability.
The invention together with its objects and advantages will be best understood from a study of the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein:
Figure 1 is a view mostly in elevation of the device certain parts being shown in section.
Figure 2 is a top plan view of the device.
Figure 3 is a horizontal sectional View taken near the lower end of the device. I
Figure 4 is a perspective view of a vertically movable rod.
Figure 5 is a perspective viewof a guide rod.
Figure 6 is a perspective view of a sleeve and Figure 7 is an end elevational view of one of the handle equipped arms of the device.
Referring to the drawingsby reference numerals it will be seen that the device comprises a base consisting of a pair of opposed spaced parallel members 5-5 provided with apertured flanges or otherwise as at 6 for securing the members 5 to a floor or the like.
Supported between the members 5 and clamped. thereto through the medium of suitable clamps 1 is a cross member 8 having upturned ends 9 and I0 respectively. Secured to the end 9 of the member 8 is a tubular standard or post II in the upper end of which is journalled a shank I2. Inward movement of the shank I2 is limited by a suitable collar I3.
Extending, or branching from the shank I2 are arms I4 that have horizontal portions I4a provided at their outer ends with depending handles I5. The handles I5 are secured to the arm extension I4a in any suitable manner, preferably by being integral therewith.
Adjacent the handle equipped end thereofeach arm extension 14a is provided with a double suspension hook indicated generally by the reference numeral I6.
As best shown in Figure '7 each hook I6 is formed from a single length of wire or the like bent in a substantially inverted U, and the legs of the U then reversely bent to provide hooks disposed at opposite sides of the member I40. At the closed end of the U the hook I6 is welded or otherwise secured to the arm extension I 44a The hooks I6 serve to removably support horizontal bars I1. As best shown in Figure 2 the bars I! are arranged substantially in the form of a triangle with the ends of the bars engaging in the hooks of the members I6.
Each bar I1 is adapted to support thereon a plurality of superimposed bags I8 which are folded over the respective bars I! in the manner clearly suggested in broken line in Figure 1. The bags I8 are of the type usually provided for covering pressed and cleaned garments by a tailoring establishment. 1
The device further includes an elevator indicated generally by the reference numeral 20.
The elevator 29 comprises an elongated tube 2| having a threaded end 2Ia that is screwed into the end I0 of the member 8. Arranged for vertical sliding movement within the member 2| is a rod 22 that is provided on its upper end with a hook 23 with which is adapted to be engaged the hook of a conventional garment hanger.
Disposed over the member 2I is a cover .sleeve 24 of any suitable, preferably transparent material. The member 24 at one end is provided with a collar 25 through the medium of which and a set screw or the like said member 24 is secured to the rod 22 to move therewith.
Pivotally secured as at 26 within the lower end of the member 2I is one end of a lever 21 which operates in an elongated slot 28 provided in the member 2 I. At its pivoted end the member 21 has secured thereto in'any suitable manner, preferably by being integral therewith a foot pedal 29 which operates through a relatively short slot 30 provided in the lower end of the member 2| opposite to the slot 28.
At its free end lever 21 is operatively connected.
with the rod 22 through the medium of a link 3| pivoted at one end to the link 21 and at its relatively opposite end pivoted within the bifurcated lower end of the r d 22 as at 32. It will thus be seen that pressing on the pedal 29 to move the same from the full line position to the dotted line position shown in Figure 1 lever 21 will be rocked, and the movement of the lever will, through the medium of the link 3 I, be transmitted to rod 22 for moving the latter together with the member 24 from the full line position shown in Figure l to the dotted line position shown in said figure. for elevating the garment hanger engaged with the hook 23 and the garment on said elevator. Thus in this way is the garment onthe hanger moved upwardly into a position adjacent to and in substantial alinement with the mouth of a bag l8.
With the parts in the dotted line position shown in Figure 1 the operator need only pull the uppermost bag l8 downwardly and over the garment while the same remains on the hanger suspended from the hook 23.
From the above it will be seen that the bag l8 may be readily placed on the garment to cover the same.
when the bag has been placed over the garment in the manner just described the garment and its hanger may be readily removed from the hook 23, the foot taken oi! the pedal 29, and rod 22 and associated parts will then by gravity return from the dotted line position to the full line position shown in Figure 1. The device is now in readiness for the next operation incidental to the placing 'of a bag over the garment.
It will be understood that bags of suitable and varying length may be placed on the rod l1 and when it is desired to make use of a bag of a desired size the operator may grasp any one of the handlesli and revolve the arm assembly until the selected group of bags is brought in position whereby one of them may be used for covering a garment in a manner hereinbefore described in detail.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is: I
1. In a device of the character described, and in combination with means for suspending a garment bag or the like in elevated position, a fixed tubular member, a rod having a vertical sliding flt in said member, a hook on the upper end of said rod and adapted to have a garment hanger engaged therewith, a foot pedal pivotally mounted at the lower end of said tubular member, and link means operatively connecting said pedal with the rod for transmitting movement of the pedal to the rod for elevating the latter, and a cover sleeve for said tubular member secured at one end to said rod for movement therewith.
2. In a device of the character described, a fixed perpendicularly disposed tubular member, a rod having a sliding lit in said member, a cover sleeve for the tubular member secured at one end to said rod for movement therewith, a loot pedal pivotally mounted at the lower end of said tubular member, link means operatively connecting the pedal with the rod for transmitting movement of the pedal to the rod, and said tubular member being provided with a slot longitudinally elongated to accommodate said link means.
