GARMENT HANGER
Edward Okun, New York, N. Y.
Application April 16, 1936, Serial No. 74,612
3 Claims. (01.. 223-94)
" This invention relates to improvements ingar
a chain 29 which can be used for hanging ties,
ment hangers and more particularly to improve
belts, scarfs and the like. The pivot member I9
vments in‘ collapsible garment hangers.
is provided with an upper extension 30 having
"A particular object of this invention is the pro
a pivot pin 32 to receive the hook 3| by which
5 vision of an improved collapsible garment hanger
the hanger may be suspended. The hook 3| is
vpreferably made of metal which is foldable into mounted so that it is movable in any desired di
a small ‘compass when collapsed and which will rection since the extensions 30 can be moved
be of superior efficiency for holding garments around a vertical axis, and the hook 3| can be
when in the operative position.

Further objects of the invention will be, ap

or lazy-tongs 'constructionwhich comprises the

body of the hanger.
l2, l3, l4 and I5 denote
links of said construction which are pivoted to
each other and to the members it! and H at l6,

‘ tral pivot member of the members Ill and I l. 20
designates a rigid extension of the link l3; 2|
a similar extension of the link IS. The extensions
2!] and 2| each end in a dish-like element 22 of
, substantially oval contour, 22’ representing the
'
35
base of said dish-like element which has super
imposed thereon a soft textile‘material 23 which
is enclosedby the rim or ?ange 24.
I have illustrated in this embodiment a par
ticular shape of extension 20 or 2|, but I may
> 7 ‘vary the shape of this arm and dish-like element
40 22 without departing from the spirit of my in
,
vention.
'
- The purpose of the layer 23 of textile material
made of velvet, plushor the like, or other mate
rial provided with a nap; is to serve as a friction
4:5 al device to impede the falling-01f of garments
which are suspended upon the hanger. Fig. 5
shows the construction of each of the pivot mem
bers.
It should be noted that in operative position 10
the shank 35 of the hook 3| is at right angles to
-
~25 indicates the head of the pivot member. 26
is the base of the pivot member, which is en
larged in‘ order to turnably connect the adjacent
parts, su?icient play being allowed so that said
parts can turn freely,
The shanks of pivot members 16 and I6’ pass
through lugs’ 21 which hold the end-links 28 of
so that the pressure of the garment suspended
from the hanger is directed parallel to the shank
35 and does not tend to collapse the lazy-tongs
construction, so that the links of said construc
tion will remain in any desired position.
I am aware of the fact that garment hangers
have previously been constructed on a series of
levers and links designated as lazy-tongs, but in
such construction the weight of the garment has
tended in all cases to force the lazy-tongs into
the maximum extended position, whereas, by the
arrangement herein indicated, the lazy-tongs may
be kept at any position desired according to the 25
size of the garment suspended on the hanger.
I preferably employ a gauge of metal for the
manufacture of the links so that the hanger will
be sufficiently springy to conform to the shape of
the garment, and my improved hanger in its
operative position will conform to the contour
of the ordinary garment hanger.
As shown in Fig. 3, the links H] and H are of
equal length, and said length is equal to the
length of link l5‘ and its extensiongZl, including .
the dished member thereof, and is equal to the
length of link 13 including the extension 29 and
the dished member thereof. The ends of the
parts of the collapsed device are closely adjacent
each other and the hook lies flat against the col
lapsed body of the device. The length of the hook
is substantially equal to one-half the length of
member ID or member ll.
Having fully described my invention, what I
claim is:45
1. A lazy-tongs hanger comprising a pair of
arms of equal length, a pivot member turnably
connecting said arms to each other at their cen
tral points so that the outer ends of said arms“
are arranged in pairs, the outer ends of each pair ’
being movable relative to each other, the outer
ends of each pair having a pair of links pivotally
connected thereto, each pair’ of links comprising
a short link and a long link, the length of the
long link being substantially equal to the length '

of an arm, the short link being pivotally con
nected to the long link at the central point of the
long link, the extensions of the long links beyond
pivot member and turnable in a direction per
pendicular to the direction of turning move
to said pivot member and turnable in a direction
ment of said arms, the ends of said long’ links
which project beyond the short links constitute
ing the end-portions of the hanger and having
cup-shaped depressions having fabric members
perpendicular to the direction of turning move
held therein. '
ment of said arms.
3. A lazy-tongs hanger comprising a pair ‘of
arms of equal length, a pivot member connecting
said arms to each other, theouter ends of said
arms being arranged in pairs, the outer ends of
the short links constituting the end-portions
of the hanger and a hook turn/ably connected
2. A lazy-tongs hanger comprising a pair of
10 arms of equal length, a pivot member turnably
connecting said arms to each other at their
central points so that the outer ends of said arms
each pair being movable relative to‘ each other,
are arranged in pairs, the outer ends of each pair
the outer ends of each pair having a pair of links
being movable relative to each other, the outer
pivotally connected thereto, each pair of links

15 ends of each pair having apair of links pivotally
comprising a short link and a long link, the short 15
connected thereto, each pair of links comprising
link being pivotally connected to the long link

tensions of theplong links beyond the short links
constituting the end-portions of the hanger, said
arms having supporting means connected thereto. 20
