TIE RIDERS Filed April 7. 1960 INVENTOR, Ralph J. Caparosa his ATTORNEYS.
3,@85,7Z Patented Apr. 16, 1963 3,085,725 TEE RIDERS Ralph 3. Caparosa, Pittsburgh, Pa, assignor to Redi-Knot End, Pittsburgh, Pa. Filed Apr. '7, 196%), Ser. No. 2%,777 2 Claims. (Ci. 223--S7) This invention relates to tie riders or hangers and particularly to a hanger for individual pre-tied neckties having wing members adapted to fit beneath the wearers collar.
The proper hanging or storing of pretied neckties has been a very real problem. Conventional necktie hangers for four--in-hand ties are not satisfactory because they depend on the drape of material for holding and storing. As a result, various types of cardboard hooks and the like have been used with mediocre success.
I have invented a tie rider for pre-tied neckties in which the Wings of such neckties are used to advantage, but which may be used for conventional tour-in-hand neckties and which may be hung on any conventional hanger, hook or support. I provide a planar member having a body portion, a hook member on said body portion and spaced slots on opposite sides of said body portion, spaced apart a distance substantially equal to the base width of a knot in a pro-tied necktie. Preferably the hook and body are so arranged as to provide a horizontal slot open to receive a conventional tie.
In the foregoing general description I have set out certain objects, advantages and purposes of my invention. Other objects, purposes and advantages of this invention wlil be evident from a consideration of the following description and the accompanying drawings in which:
FIGURE 1 is a front elevation of a tie rider according to my invention;
FIGURE 2 is an isometric View of the tie rider of FIGURE 1 with a tie thereon;
FIGURE 3 is an isometric view of the tie rider of FIGURE 1 showing the method of insertion of the tie.
Referring to the drawings 1 have illustrated a tie rider made of planar plastic material comprising a body portion 11) having notched slots 11 and 12 at opposite ends thereof to receive the wings 13 and 14 of a pre-tied necktie 15. A horizontal slot 16 is provided to receive a conventional necktie. Stop 17 prevents the tie from slipping sidewise. Hook means 18 provides an opening 19 to fit over a hanger 2% by which the tie is suspended. Advertising material 21 can be printed on the surface of body 16 or hook means 18.
A pro-tied necktie 15 is attached to the tie rider of this invention by compressing the wings =13 and 14 between the fingers. The Wings 13 and 14 are inserted through slots 11 and 12 and permitted to expand, drawing the tie into the slots. Alternatively the wings may be inserted through the open ends 11a and 12a of slots 11 and 12 until they come beneath notches 11b and 12b.
While I have illustrated and described a present preferred embodiment of my invention it will be understood that the invention may be otherwise embodied within the scope of the following claims.
1. A tie rider for ties pretied on a winged member comprising a generally rectangular planar body portion of slightly greater width than the width of the knot forming portion of the tie adapted to be supported thereby, hanger means on one side of said body portion and spaced slots beginning adjacent the top corners of said body portion and extending angularly inwardly and downwardly toward the center of the body portion adapted to receive the wings of said Winged member, said slots being spaced apart at all points a distance less than the distance between the ends of the winged member whereby the winged member is insertable under compression and released into the slots to hold it against slippage.
2. A tie rider as claimed in claim 1 wherein the angular slots are open at the end adjacent the top corners and provided with stop means adapted to prevent the Wings from sliding out of said slots.
