5 Claims. (01. 223—98)
This invention is an improvement in a com
‘bined garment support and a relatively adjustable
protector cooperable therewith.
The present application is a division of the
‘5 subject matter of my prior application Ser. No.
As shown, the upturned hook 5 is preferably
The objects in view are to provide a supporting
hanger provided with an elongated stem on which
the protector may ‘be mounted for vertical ad
of less length than the socket l3 and in any
event should not project above it. In this man
ner it avoids the possibility of interference or
justment, the hanger yoke being preferably sep-
tearing of the fabric, especially of dresses, wraps, 10
arably connected with the stem and protector

By such construction the hanger may be low

Fig. 3 is a partial view in elevation like Fig. 1
‘but showing :a modi?ed construction;
‘Fig. 4 is a similar view showing the protector
‘elevated and suspended, utilizing a modi?ed ar
rangement of the lifting mechanism.
The hangerin'its entirety ‘comprises the con
ventional yoke 2 of any suitable construction,
over ‘which the ‘garment or garments 3, as a coat,
cloak, dress, suit, etc. is or are draped for nor
30 mal support, in the usual manner.
The yoke 2 is provided at its upper middle
portion with a central vertical opening or socket
l3, entirely or only partly through it, upwardly
from the lower side.
Socket I3 is adapted to be engaged by a co
operating open hook 5 at the lower terminal of
the elongated stem or shank 6, of wire or the
like, as in Figs. 1 and 2.
At its upper end stem 6 terminates in also}:
40 porting hook 1 adapted to engage a carrying bar
or rod 8. Hook 1 is extended around in the
form of an engaging loop terminating in a
rounded reversed eye 9 or the like, for grasping.
The inner portion of the wire forming the eye 9
45v is rounded as shown, leaving a space H] slightly
less in width than the diameter of bar or rod 8,
to prevent accidental removal therefrom. The
hook 1 being somewhat resilient, allows for place
ment over the bar as in

of its load of garments as in Figs. 1 and 2, and ,
as easily removed by merely elevating it verti- -
cally for clearance. The lower end portion of
Socket I3 is preferably flared as in Fig. 2, facili
tating entrance of hook 5. Such manipulation
‘avoids the necessity of any tilting or movement
other than vertical, and renders placement and 20
removal extremely easy and convenient.
In such ‘case also, the retaining function of
hook 'I by its resilient inwardly extending termi
nal is of advantage in providing for easy spring
ing application over the bar 8 and preventing
accidental removal of the stem by any material
degree of upward movement, incident to upward
'movement of the stem or lifting of the protector
on the stem.
A further advantage provided by the upper 30
hook construction is illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2.
In case the protector is freely or non-fric
tionally mounted on the stem, merely by a small
clearance opening I‘! for the stem, it may be
raised or lowered by a pull cord l4 attached in 35
any suitable manner to- the protector, as at 15
and passed upwardly through the eye 9 and pro
vided with a depending pulling terminal It.
In such arrangement the protector may be ele
vated and held temporarily by the hand or any 40
suitable connection for the cord, and again low
ered to normal position. When thus elevated and
held, it leaves the operator free to use both hands
in removing the garments from or replacing them
on the hanger, or in removing the hanger itself
and its load entirely from the stem terminal, or
in replacing it thereon.
I show in Fig. 3 a further modi?cation utiliz
ing the same general combination of elements,’
but in which the stem 6 is twisted on itself to 50
provide a looped eye 911. Such loop is made in
the shank of the stem, preferably closely below
the hook ‘I, through which the cord I4 is passed
in the manner above described.
The eye 91; thus provides a rounded bearing 55
for the cord, closely adjacent the stem, ensuring
stability and substantially vertical disposition
of the supporting cord.
In place of the terminal I6, the free end of
the cord is provided with a counterweight l6a,
properly proportioned as to weight and design
as to counterbalance the protector, and to hold
it suspended at any desired elevated, lowered, 01'
intermediate position.
In Fig. 4 the same construction is shown except
that in this case the cord I4 is provided with a
terminal cross bar 86b.
The terminal cross bar may be inserted end
wise through loop 9a and will then prevent com
15 plete withdrawal unless properly manipulated,
thus avoiding undesired disconnection.
With such form, or either of the others, the
cord may be looped around eye 9 as shown su?i
ciently to provide a holding connection, thus
20 ensuring elevated support of the protector II
until it is desired to lower it. The cord may be
then unwound and will resume its normal free
sliding relation.
The advantage and usefulness of the inven
25 tion will be easily understood and appreciated by
all those familiar with the use of coat hangers,
especially in connection with the merchandising
of clothing, or its storage. It is especially useful
where a series of hangers are suspended side by
30 side in a limited space.
The upper hook terminal provides for easy
placement or removal and avoids undesired dis
connection. The hook and eye connection, or
the vertical hook and socket connection, between
35 the lower end of the elongated stem 6 and hanger
2 facilitates connection and disconnection in the
manner stated. The elongated stem allows for
vertical movement and arresting support of the
protector, and the entire assemblage of these
40 elements provides a compact and very effective
convenient means for the purpose intended.
The protector itself may be made of any suit
able flexible material, conveniently shaped and
in appropriate sizes, and forms a practically com
plete protection for the upper portions of sus
pended garments. I prefer to utilize in its manu
facture any well known commercially available
material, having the advantages of transparency,
lightness, strength and pliability.
The design, shape, proportions, size, or mate
rial of the protector and its associated elements
may be varied to suit varying conditions of use,
and it will be understood that the invention is
not limited to the exact construction disclosed.
What I claim is:
1. In combination with a garment hanger yoke
and an elongated stem having separable connec
tion with the yoke and an upper terminal hook
provided with an endmost eye, a garment pro_ 10
tector slidably mounted on the stem, and means
for raising and lowering it thereon connected
with the protector and engaging said eye.
2. In combination with a garment hanger and
an elongated supporting stem having at its upper 15
end a rod engaging hook provided with a looped
eye, a garment protector slidably mounted on
the stem, and a raising and lowering cord con
nect-ed with the protector and passing through
said eye.
3. In combination with a garment hanger and
an elongated supporting stem having at its upper
portion a rod engaging hook and a looped eye,
a garment protector slidably mounted on the
stem, and a raising and lowering cord connected 25
with the protector and passing through the eye.
4. In combination with a garment hanger and
an elongated stem having at its upper portion a
rod engaging hook terminating in a rounded end
and a lower looped bearing in the stem, a gar 30
ment protector slidably mounted on the stem,
and 2. raising and lowering cord connected with
the protector passing through the looped bear
ing and wound about the rounded end of the hook
for temporary holding suspension of the protec
tor when raised.
5. In combination with a garment hanger yoke
and an elongated stem having separable connec
tion with the yoke and an upper terminal hook
provided with an inwardly disposed resilient 110
rounded end retaining portion facilitating open
ing placement over a supporting bar and having
a looped eye, a garment protector slidably mount
ed on the stem, and a cord connected with the
protector and engaging the eye for, raising and
lowering the protector on the stem.
