Each consists of a substantiallystraight hanger supporting len'gthliS, integral or rigid at its'" upper end with a supportinghooli'dd andat its lower endWithalinedQ substantially straight, downwardly and Toutwardly sloping lengths I 5', l 5,..an d.a substantially straight connecting. length" lfi', between the i outer ends of -th'e'lengths 15; I5; in spaced'i'relationto arid. below the length 13. All of .the lengths 1 l3. i 5;. '!5, l'dare substantially in a single plane, thelengths l5, l5fare at the sameangula'r relation to the length E3, ,the outer ends of said lengths 1,15, J5 terminate'in equidistantly spaced relationto said length [3, and the lengths l3and [6 are substantially in right angular relation to each other. I

The 'garment hanger support 12 consists ,of a blockof material including an elongatedbody l1 disposed rearwardly, of said block and a hook portion .l}8 disposed forwardly.of the block.

{The ,eiongated body. I'l' is ofgeneral curvilinear configuration. as denoted at 19 'at its rearward side, theforward side2ii of .said. elongated body; lin parallelr'elation to .the hook portion L8, is flat, and said hook portionisintegral orrigid with and extends forwardly trornla lower portion q -ih r lea eieg b nagre upw rd l it d 'v stendin lop 'l h ou h' the body IjLj at; the rear of the hookportionlflgand of diameter to more or less snugly receive the supporting length 13 of a garment hanger, is open at its upper and lower ends to the upper and lower ends of said body l1, and a transversely extending slot in the lower end of the body H, in parallel relation to the fiat forward surface 20 and said hook portion [8, and of diameter to more or less snugly receive the inner end portions of the sloping lengths I5, l5 of a garment hanger, is designated 22. The longitudinally extending opening 2| and the transversely extending slot 22 are in alined relation in direction longitudinally of the body H, the lower end of said longitudinally extending opening is contiguous with the midlength of said transversely extending slot, end portions of the transversely extending slot at opposite sides of the longitudinally extending opening are defined at their forward sides by rearwardly facing surfaces 24 of a lower portion of said body, I! and at their rearward sides by forwardly facing surfaces 24 of a lower portion of said body, and the base of said transversely extending slot is defined by a lower end wall 25 of the body.

The manner in which the garment hanger support l2 of Figs. 1 to is adapted to be mounted 'on a first garment hanger, such as Hi, to be capable of supporting a second garment hanger, such as II, will be apparent. In the accomplishment tudinally extending opening therethrough adapted to receive said hanger supporting length and a transversely extending slot in a lower portion thereof adapted to receive inner end portions of said substantially alined, outwardly extending lengths, said longitudinally extending opening and said transversely extending slot being in alined relation in direction longitudinally of said elongated body, the lower end of said longitudinally extending opening being of assembly of said garment hanger support with a first garment hanger, such as H), the'supporting hook it will be threaded upwardly through the longitudinally extending opening 2! in, the body I7, and said body will be slid downwardly relative to the first garment hanger, While the transversely extending slot 22 is retained in alined relation with the downwardly and outwardly sloping garment supporting lengths 15, I5, until adj acent portions of said lengths l5, l5 are situated in 'said transversely extending slot 22 seated against the lower end wall of the body ll. Clearly, the support l2 when assembled with a first garment hanger in the manner as set forth will be removably supported upon and in fixed relation to said first garment hanger, and the hook portion l8 will be in position to be capable of supporting, as in Fig. 1, a second garment I.

hanger.

" Referring to Fig. 6 of the drawing, the garment hanger support there disclosed is in all respects like the garment hanger support of Figs. 1 to 5, except that a hook portion 18 extends forwardly from an upper portion of the body H.

With respect to Fig. '7, the garment hanger support there shown is in all respects like the garment hanger support of Fig. 6, except that an extension 26 projecting downwardly from and alined with the body I"! includes a hook 21 on its lower end adapted to be sprung over an intermediate portion of a connecting length such as [6 of a garment hanger. While the extension 26 is disclosed on a rearward portion of the body I? and the hook 2'! is disposed forwardly, said extension 26 could, just as well, be on a forward portion of said body 11 with said hook disposed rearwardly. The construction and arrangement will be such that when the support of Fig. '7 is upon a garment hanger, a lower surface of the midlength of the connecting element such as 16 of said garment hanger will be pressingly engaged by the hook 2i and said connecting element will ,be' sprung upwardly.

What is claimed is:

1. A device to be mounted on a garment hanger including a hanger supporting length, a supporting hook above and rigid with said hanger sup- V constituted as contiguous with an'intermediate portion of said transversely extending-slot and the base of said transversely extending slot being defined by a lower end wall of said'elongated body.

2. A device to be mounted on a garment hanger including a hanger supporting length, a supporting hook above and rigid with saidhanger supporting length, substantially alined, outwardly extending lengths below and rigid with the garment supporting length and a connecting length between outer ends of said substantially alined, outwardly extendinglengths in spaced, substantially perpendicular relation to and substantially in the plane of said hanger supporting length, comprising a block of material an upwardly opening hook portion disposed at a forward portion of said block and an elongated body disposed at a rearward portion'of theblock having a longitudinally extending opening therethrough adapted to receive said hanger supporting length and a transversely extending slot in a lower portion thereof adapted to receive inner end portions of said substantially alined, outwardly extending lengths, said longitudinally extending opening and said transversely extending slot being in alined relation in direction longitudinally of said elongated body, the lower end of said longitudinally extending opening being contiguous with an intermediate portion of said transversely extending slot and the base of said transversely extending slot being defined by a lower end 'wall of said elongated body, an extension projecting downwardly from said body, a hook on said extension adapted to be sprung over an intermediate portion of said connecting length and 'pressingly engaged with a lower surface of said'intermediate portion.
