M. ROBIN. 1100K 0R HANGER.

PATENT OEEICE.

MAX ROBIN, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

HOOK OR HANGER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 785,381, dated March 21, 1905.

Application iled May 21, 1904-.. Serial No. 209,025.

State of NewYork, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hooks or Hangers, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to that class of hooks or hangersadapted more particularly for use in hanging hats and garments, and has for its object to provide a cheap and simple hook of this character which can be readily attached to and detached from a support-such as a molding, bracket, or the like-without the use of screws or bolts to secure same thereto.

To these and other ends, which will hereinafter appear, my invention consists in the novel features of improvement and details of construction hereinafter set forth,and finally sumvmarized in the appended claims.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawing, forming part hereof, wherein the figure shown is a perspective view of a hook or hanger embodying my invention, the same being shown supported upon a piece of molding.l

Referring to the drawing, A indicates the upper horizontally-disposed member of the hook, its outer extremity being bent upwardly, as at a, and at the rear or heel thereof is a member B, depending downwardly at substantially a right angle to the member A, the lower extremity of this depending member being' provided with a slight forward bend I).

C indicates the lower hook member, and D indicates the member or brace connecting the members A and O. Extending upwardly from the lower hook O in vertical alinement with the member B is a strut or member E, provided with an eye e, through which the member A loosely passes.

The entire device is preferably constructed of a single piece of spring-wire bent and shaped to form, as shown, and by reason of their resiliency the members B and E, bridged by the rear or heel portion of member A, constitute a substantially inverted U shaped spring-clamp for the hook, whereby the same may readily be attached to and detached from molding-strips or other analogous supports without the use of screws or bolts. The member E being yieldingly connected to the member A as described, I am enabled to apply the device to moldings or supports of varying thicknesses. The hook is applied, as will be obvious, by simply jamming the members B and E down over the sides of the molding or other support, the slight forward bend b at end of depending member B preventing the same from entering the wall as the hanger is jammed down upon the molding.

Having now described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is- Y l. A hook of the character described, comprising an upper hook member having a depending portion at the rear, a lower hook member, and a resilient member in vertical alinement with the depending portion of the upper hook member and spaced therefrom to form a clamp therewith, said resilient member having an eye formed at one end through A which the upper hook member loosely passes whereby the former is free to move forward under pressure throughout its entire length.

2. A hook of the character described, formed of an integral piece of wire, comprising an upper hook member having a depending portion at the rear, a lower hook member, and a resilient member in vertical alinement with the depending portion of the upper hook member and spaced therefrom to form a clamp therewith, said resilient member having an eye formed at one end through which the upper hook member loosely passes whereby the former is free to move forward under pressure throughout its entire length.

3. A hook of the character described, comprising an upper hook member having a depending portion at the rear bent forward at its end, a lower hook member, and a resilient member in vertical alinement with the depending portion of the upper hook member and spaced therefrom to form a clamp therewith, said resilient member having an eye formed at one end through which the upper hook member looselypasses whereby the former is free to move forward under pressure throughout its entire length.

MAX ROBIN.
