Binns, Pittsburgh, Pa. Application March 30, 1936, Serial No. l71,617 2 Claims. (Cl. 223-85) This invention is an improvement in separable Such portion may be in the form of a section of garment or coat hangers, particularly adapted for use in connection with an adjustable garment protector of the general kind disclosed in my 5 companion application ?led February 12, 1936, Serial No. 63,543. The objects in view are to provide a hanger provided with an elongated stem on which the protector may be mounted for vertical adjust 10 ment, the hanger element being separably con nected with the stem and protector for removal or replacement, with the supported garment. In the drawing, showing one preferred embodi ment of the invention: Fig. 1 is a View of the device in front elevation, showing it in relation to a garment and the cov ering protector; Fig. 2 is an edge view of the device, partly brok en away; Fig. 3 is a plan view of Fig. 1 with the stem 20 in section. The hanger in 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 normal support, in the usual manner. The yoke 2 is provided at itsupper middle por tion with a hook or eye 4, suitably secured, and adapted to be engaged by a co-operating open 30 eye or hook 5 at the lower terminal of the elon gated stem. or shank 6, of wire or the like, as in stem. As thus mounted the protector may be pushed up along the stem 6 above the garment and hang er, as indicated in dotted lines, Fig. 1. Both gar ment and hanger may then be readily removed from hook 5, or the garment from the hanger, 10 and then replaced. The lowering of the protector may then be as easily accomplished. The retaining function of hook 7 by its resili ent inwardly extending terminal is of advantage in preventing accidental removal of the stem from 15 rod 8 by any material degree of upward move ment, incident to upward lifting of the protector on the stem. The advantage and usefulness of the invention Will be easily understood and appreciated by all 0 those familiar with the use of coat hangers, es pecially in connection with the merchandising of clothing, or its storage. It is especially useful where a series of hangers are suspended side by side in a limited space. At its upper end stem 6 terminates in a sup porting hook 1 adapted to engage a carrying bar or rod 8. Hook 1 is extended around in the form 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 the lower end of the elongated stem 6 and hanger 2 30 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 ele ments provides a compact and very effective con 35 of an engaging loop terminating in a rounded re venient means for the purpose intended. Fig. 1. CO C;u sheet rubber or the like, having a slit extending therethrough and through the protector fabric or material, for frictional engagement with the versed eye 9 or the like, forgrasping. The inner portion of the wire forming the eye 9 is rounded as shown, leaving a space M3 slightly less in width 4.0 than the diameter of bar 8 to prevent acciden tal removal therefrom. The hook ‘I being some what resilient, allows for placement over the bar as in the usual open hook form, but with outward and reverse automatic spring action. By with drawing the terminal 9 of either the rounded or any other suitable form, the entire stem, with or without the yoke 2, may be easily removed from the bar. The protector H is in the form of an inverted 5 0 open bottom bag or pouch of comparatively shal low depth, but sufficiently ample in dimensions laterally to cover the upper shoulder portions of garment 3 when lowered thereon, as in Fig. 1. It is provided at its upper middle portion with an elastic or resilient friction creating element [2. ’ The protector itself may be made of any suit able ?exible material, suitably 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 suitable ?exible material having the ad 40 vantages of tranparency, lightness, strength and pliability. ‘ é ‘ 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 supporting yoke and a separably connected elongated stem having an upper terminal bar-engaging hook, a comparativelyshallow depth open bottom shoul der-covering garment protector adapted to be 50 2 2,111,164 elevated by sliding movement along the stem en der-covering garment protector adapted to be tirely above the yoke and its supported garment, said protector having at its top middle portion a elevated by sliding movement along the stem en tirely above the yoke and its supported garment, said protector having at its top middle portion a small section of sheet rubber closely connected small section of resilient material having a trans verse slit providing opposite edges in frictional engagement with the stem whereby the protector is adapted. to be raised, arrested, or lowered on the stem to vary its position relative to the hanger and clothing carried thereby. 2. In combination with a garment supporting yoke and a separably connected elongated stem having an upper terminal bar-engaging hook, a comparatively shallow depth open bottom shoul- ~ to the material of the protector, said rubber sheet and material being transversely slitted providing opposite edges in frictional and resilient engage ment with the stem whereby the protector is adapted to be raised, arrested, ,or lowered on the stem‘ to vary its ‘position relative to the hanger and. clothing carried thereby.
