REMOVABLE SHOULDER PAD FOR HANGERS Filed June 15, 1950 INVENTOR. RENEE SAETI Patented Oct. 21, 1952 UNITED I STAT PATENT OFFICE REMQVABLE SHOULDER PADFORHANGERS Renee Sarti, New York, Application June 15, 1950, erialN0.11 6 8;2 90" 3;,Claims- (c1. 223*92).

This invention relates to new 1 and useful improvements ingarment hangers, and-more-partlcularly, the aim is to providea novel and valuable -form of removable shoulderpad-for a garment hanger, whereby, with one of saidpads applied to each of the: two end portions of the hook-suspended bar of such an inexpensive garment hanger as the well known one wherein said baris merely a bowed strip having parallel sides and of substantially the same cross-section from end,to end,'unique'advantages are afiorded.

More specifically; an object of the invention is -toprovide a type of "garment hanger shoulder pad which isconstituted and constructednot only in such manner that the-pad is readily yet securelyengageable with'an end portion of the bar of the hanger and also when desired equally readily disengageable from said bar as for placementonn-the barof another hanger, but also in such manner that the pad may he slid to any extent desired lengthwisely of .the hanger bar.

In the latter regard, a salient feature of thesaid roofin por ion of each pad lies outward -rela-,

For furth r comprehension f he inve tion,

and of the objects and advantages thereof ref- .erence will be had to the following description and accompanying drawin s, and. to he appendedclaims in which the various novel fea- 1 tun s of. the inventionaremore particularly set forth, r

In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig; l'is a perspective view of'a shoulder pad pursuant to the invention, in a: now preferred embodiment.

Fig-r 8 is a view similar-to Figr'l'; but illustrating in full lines another of said-pad adjustments,

Fig 9 'is'also a'view similar toF-ig. That-illustrating in full lines still another of said'pad'ade justments.

Referring now to the drawings more in detail, the embodiment of the new shoulderpad illus trated, and which .asawhole-designated i5; is shown. as made fromasingle: piece of foam rubber shaped tcrincorporate-a collar portion 15 having a clearethrough tunnel like opening 11 and aroofing portion 18 extendedbeyond one end of the collar portion 1:6: Theend' surfaoe I6 of the collar portion l6, opposite the roofing portion 18 is preferably rounded and-thesides of the collar portion are flared-'outward in a lateral direction only, asshown at i Bb in Fig. 2.

The collar portion It is-ellipticalin-endelevation as best shown in Figs.- 1; 4 audit, and the opening H is eccentrical-lyformedthereinsothat the: top wall is somewhat thicker than the bottom wall and the two side walls arethicker than The roofing portion l8, it will he noted, is a gradually diminishing; cross-section toward its end-remote fromthe collar portion 16'; this dirninution of'cross-sectiondesirably being the result, asshown of a gradual decrease in the width-as well as in the thickness of'the roofing portion 18 towardrits end remote, from the collar ortion: I 6. Further, as shown, the roofing portion l8'is sub- The opening I! may normally be of round cross-section as shown, since, due to the extreme pliability of foam rubber, said opening will adapt itself to the cross-sectional shape of an end portion of a hanger bar, even one, such as that hereinabove referred to and such asshown at 28, having parallel sides. The ordinary complementary part of the garment hanger including the bar 21'! is, as illustrated, the familiar bent- Wire hook 2|.

In Fig. 7, the pad i5 is shown as frictionally gripping the bar as, the result of having been slidably adjusted along said bar so that an end portion of the bar is extended along the entirty of the length of the opening I? through the collar portion it of the pad. With such an assembly of the parts at both ends of thehanger, the hanger is of an effective length to function most satisfactorily relative to a shouldered garment the width across the shoulders of which is largely different from and about midway between the width across the shoulders of a garment of very small size and the width across the shoulders of a garment of very large size. In other words, the entire length of the roofing portion I8 of the pad is free, in View of the width across the shoulders of the garment now to be placed on the hanger, to be elastically forced down to lie as indicated in dot and dash lines at 18 and the entire length of said roofing portion will thus be forced down, once the said garment is placed on the hanger, by the weight of the garment, thus to hold the upper part of the garment to perfect shape while relieving all seams from the slightest strain.

In Fig. 8, the pad i5 is shown as friotionally gripping the bar 28 as the result of having been slidably adjusted along said bar so that an end portion of the bar is extended along only about half the length of the opening through the collar portion it of the pad. With such an assembly of the parts at both ends of the hanger, the hanger is of an effective length to function most satisfactorily relative to a shouldered garment the width across the shoulders of which is very large. Now, the entire length of the roofing portion 18 and also a considerable part of the length of the collar portion 16 are free, in view of the large width of the garment now to be placed on they hanger, to be elastically forced down to lie as indicated in dot and dash lines at 88 and the entire length of said roofing portion and said part of said collar portion will thus be forced down, once the said garment is placed on the hanger, by the weight of the garment, thus to hold the upper part of the garment to perfect shape while relieving all seams from the slightest strain.

In Fig. 9, the pad 15 is shown as frictionally gripping the bar 28 as the result of having been slidably adjusted along said bar so thatan end 7 portion of the bar is extended not only along the entirety of the length of the opening I? but also roofiing portion I8 is free, in view of the small width of the garment now to be placed on the m s um e e ast al y. f r ed .down. to ,lie as indicated in dot and dash lines at 18; and merely the tip of said roofing portion will thus be forced down, once the said garment is placed on the hanger, by the weight of the garment, thus to hold the upper part of the garment to perfect shape while relieving all seams from the slightest strain.

It will be understood that the assembly of parts indicated in Figs. 7 and 9 may be taken as illustrative oftypical extremes; :with the assembly of parts indicated in Fig. 8 taken as a mean and that virtually an infinite number of different adjustments are possible between said extremes. It is further to be noted that in any of said adjustments there is a spatulate subdivision of the pad, comprised, as the case may be, of the entirety of the roofing section it, or of the entirety of said roofing section plus a part of the collar portion I6, or of merely a part of said roofing portion; and with said spatulate subdivision so constituted that a soft cushion is thereby provided, that said cushion always tapers in width toward the outer end of the effective length of the hanger, and that said cushion along its length is softly resilient and hence almost limply non-resistant to sharply angled downward bending.

It is to be understood that either end of the pad it may be pulled on the end. of the garment hanger bar 28, depending upon the amount of elasticity desired.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise construction herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire-to secure by United States Letters Patent is:

1. A removable shoulder pad for engagement on the end of the cross bar of a clothes hanger, comprising a one-piece body of resilient material having a collar portion and a roof portion, said collar portion being tubular and elliptical in cross section and having a hole extendedlongitudinally from end to end thereof to frictionally receive and grip the end of the cross bar with the greatest dimension of the collar portion extended horizontally, said roof portion comprising an outwardly and downwardly projected triangular extension on the outer end of the top wall of said collar portion for extension beyond the free end of the cross bar, said triangular extension having its sides converged to an-apex at the outer end thereof.

2. A removable shoulder pad for engagement on the end of the cross bar of a clothes hanger, comprising a one-piece body of resilient material having a collar portion and a roof portion, said collar portion being tubular and elliptical in cross section and having a hole extended 1ongitudinally from end to end thereof to frictionally receive and grip the end of the cross bar with the greatest dimension of the collar portion ex- 7 tended horizontally, said roof portion comprising has a top wall thicker than its bottom wall and side .walls which are thicker than its top wall,

cross section and having a hole extended lon-' I gitudinally from end to end thereof to frictionally receive and grip the end of the cross bar with the greatest dimension of the collar portion extended horizontally, said roof portion comprising an outwardly and downwardly projected triangular extension on the outer end of the top,

wall of said collar portion for extension beyond the free end of the cross bar, said triangular extension having its sides converged to an apex at the outer end thereof, said hole being of uniform width throughout its entire length and said collar portion being flared outwardly toward its inner end.
