Krizmanich ABSTRACT: A device for hanging ties consisting of a wire body portion having a hook for engaging a rod or the like. The frame of said device includes a plurality of elongated cross bar members for supporting a multiple number of ties.
HOME AND TRAVELERS TIE HOLDER This invention relates to tie holders, and more particularly to a wire type portable tie holder.
It is therefore the main purpose of this invention to provide a home and travelers tie holder which will be sturdy in structure, decorative in appearance and will effectively hold a plurality of ties.
Another object of this invention is to provide a tie holder of the type described which will have a plurality of spaced apart crossbar members for supporting ties without the interference with one tie with another and the device contains no screw fasteners or the like and may be hung like any other item on a hanger or may be taken on trips while serving to keep ties neat and orderly and may be easily carried in a suitcase or the like.
Other objects of the present invention are to provide a home and travelers tie holder that is simple in design, inexpensive to manufacture, rugged in construction, easy to use and efficient in operation.
These and other objects will become readily evident upon a study of the following specification together with the accompanying drawing wherein:
FIG. 1 is a side view of the present invention shown in elevation;
FIG. 2 is a cross-sectionalview taken along the lines 2-2 of Fit]. 1;
P10. 3 is a plan view showing a modified form of crossbar; and
HO. 4 is similar to that of FIG. 2, but showing the method of mounting the modified crossbars.
According to this invention, a home and travelers tie holder consists of an open wire frame 11 which may be made from hard drawn wire of suitable material having a bright finish consisting of copper, nickel, chrome or the like. Wire frame, 11 consists of a bottom portion 12' and an upper portion 13 which is twisted and forms a hook 14 at one end in order to depend tie holder 10 from a hanger or other type of convenient support. A plurality of spaced apart. and parallel crossbar members 15 are provided with eyes l6 at each end which frictionally receive and engage the side portion 17 of frame 11 in order to support a plurality of ties l8 therefrom.
In use, ties 18 are placed in any suitable manner upon the crossbar 15 so that they depend downwards from holder l0 where they may be laid flat with holder 10 within a luggage carrier.
Looking now at Figure 3 of the drawing, one will see a modified crossbar 19 having the eyes 19' bent offset from the central axis of bar 19.
As is shown in H6. 4 of the drawing, one will see the method of placement of modified crossbars 19 upon the side portion 17 of frame 11. The crossbars 19 are placed alternately to one side upon frame 11 so as to form a space 20 which will allow ties 18 to depend freely without substantial rubbing of the fabrics against each other.
l. A home and travelers tie holder, comprising in combina tion, an open wire frame, hook means on said frame for depending said holder from a support device, a plurality of parallel crossbars carried by said frame providing a means for depending a plurality of neckties therefrom, said open wire frame comprising a horizontal bottom portion with upwardly extending side portions, the upper ends of said side portions being angled toward the center of said frame and twisted, one of said ends extending above said twisted area so to form said hooked means, said plurality of crossbar members of said frame being in spaced apart and parallel relationship with each other, the ends of each of said crossbar members having eye portions, said eye portions frictionally receiving and engaging said upwardly extending side portions of said frame in order to receive neckties depending therefrom in a neat and orderly fashion, alternate crossbar members being disposed on opposite sides of said upwardly extending side portions, 11 space between said crossbar members for receiving said neckties with a minimum of engagement of said neckties with each other.
