P.
to bei'sup'ported so'as to ‘apply the same strain
10 to both legs of the trouser and support-the two
legs in the proper normal relation to each other
and whereby the weight of the trousers will
contribute to the spreading thereof and intensify
the grip of the trouser hanger thereon; to pro
15 vide a device of this kind that can be readily
manipulated by one hand while the cuffs of both
legs of the trousers are held by the thumb and
fore?nger of the other hand; and to provide a
trouser hanger of this type that consists of a
20 simple Wire structure adapted for mass produc
tion at low cost.

A specific embodiment of this invention is
shown in theaccompanying drawing, in which
Figure 1 is a perspective side View.
Fig. 2 is an edge view taken from the top of
the device shown in Fig. 1.

ethetene the loops H are
bent'ito extend toward each other 'ankd'overlie,
and thus the two spreader bows are rigidly held
together so as to lie side by side in parallel planes
spaced just suf?ciently apart to easily accommo- 15
date the thickness of the cuff portions of the
trouser legs that lie between them when the‘
trouser is supported as in Fig. 4.
The shanks 6 and 8 meet at ‘l at an acute an
gle, but the bending of the wires at the point 20
‘l is such as will not injure the wires in the bend
ing operation.
In the operation of suspending a pair of trou
sers, the trouser legs are placed side by side and
Fig. 4 shows the device in engagement with
the legs of a pair of trousers with a portion of
held in proper registering relation so that the 25
operator can suspend them by grasping the cuffs
of the trouser legs between the thumb and fore
?nger of his left hand at a point adjacent the
end of the cuffs which is at the left of Fig. 4.
He then grasps the hanger in his right hand and 30
compresses it as shown in Fig. 3, and inserts
the respective spreader bows in the two trouser
one of the trouser legs broken away.
In the form shown the trouser hanger is made
- almost entirely of wire and consists of two
legs by entering the wing portions 5 ?rst and
then rocking the bows downward until the wing
portions I2 engage the opposite crease.

device may be grasped by one hand of the op
erator to contract it for engagement with the
trousers.
'
.
spreader bows each formed of a single piece of
wire bent upon itself, the bows being substantial
ly identical in form except that they have oppo
sitely o?setrportions at the points where they
40 are connected together in two places.
Each bow is formed of a single wire which is
bent upon itself at a point intermediate its ends
to form a small eye I, and the two parts are
then bent together to formrthe hook or hanger
45 member 2.
At 3 one of the parts is coiled about
the other and forms the arm 4 which extends
outwardly and is bent downwardly to form a wing
portion 5, while the other part continues prac
tically straight to form the shank 6. The two
parts are then brought together and bent in. a
small are l, the part of the wire which forms
the shank 6 forming a shank 8 at an acute angle
to the shank 6 and the part of the wire which
forms the wing 5 extending as areinforcement
9 along the shank 8 and having its end coiled
In compressing the bows the shanks 5 and 8
are forced toward each other, some of the bend
ing taking place at 1 and 9 but the bending is
mainly accommodated by the unbraced portions
l8 of the shanks 8.
The wings 5 and I2 are preferably provided
with roughened outer edges as indicated in Fig. 1
so that when they are seated in the creases of
the trouser legs there will be su?icient friction
to hold the trouser legs ?rmly through the normal 45
tendency of the device to expand after it has
been compressed for insertion into the trousers.
The wings 5 and I2 are of such curvature that by
rocking the device as-it is inserted into the trouser
legs it can be adjusted to accommodate various 50
trouser widths. This will be apparent from a
consideration of Fig. 3 where the dotted are H)
represents a circle struck from the apex of the
angle at 1 between the shanks 6 and 8.
To accommodate narrower trousers the wings 55
2,108,555

12 are rocked upwardly and to accommodate
wider trousers they are rocked downwardly with
respect to the position in which the device is
shown in Fig. 4. On account of the friction be
tween the wings 5 and I2 and the inner surfaces of
the creased trousers legs the device takes a ?rm
grip on the trousers and the weight of the
trousers when the hanger is supported on the
hook 2 tends to pull the shank 8 downwardly, ex
10 panding the spreader bows and increasing the
grip on the trousers.
Although but one speci?c embodiment of this
invention is herein shown and described, it will
be understood that certain details of the con
15 struction shown may be altered or omitted with
out departing from the spirit of this invention as
de?ned by the following claims.
I claim:
1. A trouser hanger comprising a pair of bows
20 each comprising a pair of shanks integrally con
nected in upwardly diverging V-shaped forma
tion, one of said shanks being bent upon itself to
form a wing facing outward therefrom adjacent
the apex of said V-shaped formation, and the
25 other of said shanks being bent upon itself to form
an outwardly facing wing adjacent its opposite
end, said wings being adapted to extend along
and be seated within the respective creases of a
trouser leg, and said bows being ?xedlyconnected
30 together to lie in registering positions in spaced
parallel planes.
'
2. A trouser hanger comprising a pair of bows
each comprising a pair of shanks integrally con
nected in upwardly diverging V-shaped forma
tion, one of said shanks being bent upon itself to
form a wing facing outward therefrom adjacent
the apex of said V-shaped formation, and the
other of said shanks being bent upon itself to
form an outwardly facing wing adjacent its op
posite end, said wings being adapted to extend
along and be seated within the respective creases
of a trouser leg, and said bows being ?xedly con
nected together above said wings so as to lie in
registering positions in spaced parallel planes.
3. A trouser hanger comprising a pair of
spreader bows spaced apart laterally, each of said
bows comprising a pair of shanks disposed at an
angle to each other so as to converge at their low
er portions and each of said shanks carrying a
wing portion disposed to face away from the
wing portion of the other shank and adapted to 20
extend along and be seated within a respective
crease of a trouser leg, one of said shanks being
bent to form a supporting hook at its upper end
and being ?xedly attached to the upper end of the
corresponding shank of the other bow, and one
of said shanks of each bow being resiliently ?ex
ible for normally urging the wings of the respec
tive bow apart.
