GARMENT HANGER Filed Feb. 15, 1947 Inventor Q Miles 71 B acica Em v Patented Sept. 19, 1950 UNITED STATES iWiJlENT DFFICE GARMENT HANGER Miles T. Bacica, Houston, Tex.

Application February 13, 1947, Serial No. 728,337

1 Claim. 1

My invention relates to improvements in garment hangers, the primary object in view being to provide a simply-constructed, inexpensive device of the character indicated which is especially adapted for hanging women's suits and shirts, or pants, all so as to obviate interference of one arment with another and wrinkling or crowding thereof.

Another object is to provide in such devices improved clips for hanging garments full length and which will not tear the garments while securely holding the same.

To the accomplishment of the above, and subordinate objects presently appearing, the preferred embodiment of my invention has been illustrated in the accompanying drawing, set forth in detail in the succeeding description, and defined in the claim appended hereto.

In said drawing:

Figure 1 is a view in perspective of my improved garment hanger in the preferred embodiment thereof;

Figure 2 is a fragmentary view in perspective illustrating in detail one of the gripping fingers;

Figure 3 is a view in perspective of the gripping finger complemental to the gripping finger shown in Figure 2; I

Figure 4 is a view in vertical section taken on the line 4-4 of Figure 1 and drawn to a larger scale.

Reference being had to the drawing by numerals, according to my invention, as illustrated, a skeleton-type garment hanger is provided comprising a pair of upper bars I extending oppositely and adapted to slope downwardly from opposite sides of a hanger hook 2, said bars I terminating in down-turned ends 3 connected together by a lower crossbar 4.

A pair of hanger clips 5 are carried by the lower crossbar 4 adjacent the down-turned ends 3 and which are formed in part by a pair of depending fingers 5 formed on the lower edge of said crossbar 4 and provided on one side facing one side of the hanger with lower end, flat faced bosses 7. Fingers 3, similar to the fingers 6, are opposed to said fingers 6 and form with said fingers 6 complemental pairs with the bosses 3 on the fingers 8 facing the bosses l on fingers 6. Above the bosses l, 9 thereof, the pairs of com- .plemental fingers 6, 8 are spaced apart in each pair and hingedly coupled together by an inverted U-shaped, fiat, metal'spring ill the sides H of which are fitted in countersinks [2 in the confronting faces of the fingers 5, 8 above the bosses l, 9 and secured in said countersinks H by rivets [4. The sides of the springs II] are slotted, as at l5, from the ends thereof to straddle the rivets l4 so that said springs ii} may be shoved endwise into said countersinks l2 over the rivets M to snap into said countersinks it. This provides for easy assembly of the parts of the clips 5. As will be clear, the springs It yieldingly maintain the fingers t, 8 of each pair in gripping relation with the bosses l, 9 of each pair engaging.

The upper bars l, hanger hook 2, ends 3, lower bar 4, and fingers t are coplanar and formed from a single piece of suitable material, preferably.

In using the described hanger, the upper bars I serve to support a coat and the lower bar 4 to support the pants, or a shirt, folded thereover, while the clips 5 may be used to grip and suspend any garment full length.

The foregoing will, it is believed suffice to impart a clear understanding of my invention, without further explanation.

Manifestly, the invention, as described, is susceptible of modification, without departing from the inventive concept, and right is herein reserved to such modifications as fall within the scope of the appended claim.

What I claim is:

A garment hanger comprising a hanger hook, a pair of upper bars inclined downwardly from opposite sides of said hook and terminating in down-turned ends, a lower crossbar connecting said ends, and a pair of hanger clips depending from said crossbar adjacent said ends, said clips comprising pairs of complemental confronting fingers having terminal bosses confronting in each pair of fingers and inverted U-shaped flat metal springs hingedly coupling the fingers of each pair, said springs constituting the sole connection between the fingers of the pairs and being remote from the pairs of bosses and tending to maintain the bosses engaged in each pair, said springs having sides countersunk in said fingers and provided with longitudinal slots open at one end and having rivets extending therethrough and through said fingers for holding said sides seated in the countersinks and whereby said sides of the springs may be slipped over said rivet into said countersinks.
