GARMENT HOLDER
Eugene F. Holthaus, Los Angeles, Calif” assignor
to Inviz-a-Grip Company, Los Angeles, Calif.,
a corporation of California
Application November 23, 1936, Serial No. 112,257
6 Claims. (Cl. 24—-243)
This invention relates to garment holders, and
more particularly pertains to the type of holders
which are used at the end of an elastic strap or
similar support for attachment to the top of hose
5' or stockings for the purpose of holding them in
place, such as is set forth in Reissue Patent No.
19,930, issued to James G. Tompkins April 14,
1936, and which type of supporter is character
ized by the embodiment of a hose engaging yoke
having an open and a closed end and pivoted at
10 its open end for swinging movement around the
pivotal axis to effect wrapping of a portion of the
hose or stocking around the closed end thereof.
Among the salient objects of my invention are:
to provide a supporting device. which can be very
15 economically made and which will have means as
a part thereof for frictionally holding the mate
rial of the hose or stocking as it is wrapped in the
Fig. 2 is an edge view thereof;
Fig. 3 is a detail in vertical section and ele
vation taken on-the line 3-3 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 4 is a front view of the hose-engaging yoke
showing it as detached and as initially formed b1
preparatory to mounting the friction collar
thereon;
Fig. 5 is an enlarged detail in section and ele
vation taken on the line 5--5 of Fig. 4 illustrat 10
ing the manner of applying the friction collar;
Fig. 6 is an enlarged detail in. horizontal sec
tion taken on the line 6-6 of Fig. 1;
Figs. 7, 8, and 9 are diagrammatic views show
ing three steps in applying the edge of a garment 15
or stocking to the device;
Fig. 10 is a detail in perspective of the friction
collar shown in Figs. 1, 2, 3, and 6;
Fig. 11 is a view in perspective of a modi?ed
device, whereby to avoid pinching or otherwise
injuring the material of which the garment is
made; to provide a device which can be stamped
out of sheet metal and formed into a strong,
practical and relatively rigid device; to provide
in a device of the kind referred to a hose engag
ing yoke pivotally connected at one end and at
25 its other end having a ?nger or tongue with one
free end to receive a collar or short sleeve of
friction material upon which the edge of the
garment or hose is to be placed and turned with
said yoke to wind a part of the garment or hose
30 around said yoke; and in general, to provide a
simple, economical and practical holder of the
character referred to.
Another object is to provide a construction in
the hose engaging yoke whereby the friction col
35 lar carried thereby may be readily assembled
thereon and securely retained in place against
accidental removal from the yoke and afford a
cushioning and gripping action on a fabric
40
wound around the yoke.
Another object is to provide a construction in
the friction collar whereby its cushioning and
gripping action will be enhanced.
4
A further object is to provide a construction
in the friction collar whereby it may be mounted
on its supporting tongue without placing it under
undue tension thereby increasing the life there
of.
With the foregoing objects in view together
with such other objects and advantages as may
50 subsequently appear, the invention is‘ carried
into effect as illustrated in the accompanying
drawing in which:
Fig. 1 is a front View of ‘the device with portions
55 broken away;
form of the friction collar;
Fig. 12 is a persective View of a further modi
fled form of the friction collar.
Referring now in detail to the drawing, A in
dicates generally a supporting body which as
here shown is formed of sheet metal folded upon
itself with the folded end the reof rolled to form 25
a sleeve IS with one edge of the rolled portion
resting inwardly against the other edge thereof,
as indicated at a. in Fig. 2. A loop ll has its ends
inserted into said rolled portion or sleeve
and constitutes an attaching loop or means
for ,
attachment to an elastic strap or similar sup
port. The body A has two legs I8 and ill the
lower ends of which are formed into sockets or
bearings 20 and 21 in which are pivotally con
necte-d the arms 22 and 23 of a garment engag
ing yoke B whereby said yoke can turn about
its axis a complete circle between said legs l8 and
19 as will be clear from the drawing and as indi
cated by the broken line circle b in Fig. 2.
40
An important feature of my invention is the
element
on
the
yoke
B
provision of a friction
which will hold or cause to adhere thereto the
edge of a garment, such as a stocking or hose,
engaged by the yoke. In the present showing, I 5
have shown the yoke body as having formed
therein an upwardly projecting ?nger 24 with
clearance space therearound and being com
pletely surrounded by the body of the yoke with
in which it is formed over which ?nger is placed
a collar or short sleeve C of tubular rubber or
similar resilient material, which projects through
on both sides of the yoke body, as particularly
shown in Figs. 2, 3, and 6. This provides a fric
tion element which is engaged on both sides by 55
2
2,122,141
the garment as it is wound upon said yoke in the
manner shown in Figs. 7, 8, and 9.
In forming the yoke B to provide the mounting
for the collar C it is preferably stamped from a
plate of sheet metal in a fashion to produce the
Pull on the garment increases the contact with
the collar C, and the garment is therefore ?rmly
held and without any pinching or biting of the
garment in a way which would injure the mate
side arms 22 and 23 of the yoke with out~turned
ends at the open end of the yoke terminating in
collar C‘ can be of any suitable material to create
rial.
I am aware that the friction element or
knobs 25 and 26 and to produce a plate-like pro
the necessary friction and that it can be held in
jection 21 on the closed end of the yoke having
formed therein a substantially rectangular open
ing 28 from one margin of which the ?nger 24
place in different ways, and I do not limit the
invention to the showing, except as de?ned in the
projects. In initially forming the yoke the ?nger
24 is preferably extended obliquely to the plane
of the yoke so that its free end will project out
wardly relative to the margin of the opening 28
whereby in assembling the collar C thereon the
collar may be readily slipped over the ?nger from
its free end, as indicated in dotted lines in Fig.
5. On thus positioning the collar on the ?nger
20 the latter is pressed inwardly to bring its free end
to a ?xed position within the space bounded by
the margin of the opening 28, as particularly
shown in Figs. 3 and 6', so that opposed side por
tions of the collar will then protrude from oppo
25 site sides of the projection 2? on the yoke as
above described. The above described mode of
assembly constitutes the subject of a co-pending
application for Letters Patent ?led by me the 1st
day of September, 193‘? and bearing Serial Num
ber 161,959.
The collar C may comprise a short length of
rubber tubing of circular cross section, as partic
ularly shown in Figs. 10 and 11, either with the
outer surface of the‘ tubing smooth, as shown at
35 c in Fig. 10, or corrugated or ribbed, as indicated
at d in Fig. 11. With this type of collar the bore
thereof is circular in cross section and of a diam
eter less than the width of the tongue 24 which
latter is of rectangular cross section, so that on
mounting the collar on the ?nger it will be ex
panded and placed under tension.
It has been found in practice that by placing
the collar under tension its wearing qualities are
decreased and accordingly a feature of the pres
45 ent invention resides in providing a construction
whereby this objectionable feature may be obvi
ated and which is accomplished by forming the
collar with a rectangular bore 6, as shown in Fig.
12, to closely conform to the contour of the ?nger
50 24 and also to form the collar with substantially
?at opposed side walls J‘ and g to snugly ?t the
opposed side margins of the opening 28 parallel
following claims.
I claim:
1. In a garment holder, a part for holding the
garment consisting of a yoke-like body having
two arms, a ?nger surrounded by the body por
tion, and a collar of ?exible, friction material 15
encircling said ?nger and being thicker than said
body whereby to project at both sides thereof to
engage a garment wound thereon.
2. A garment holder embodying two support
ing arms and a body portion, said arms being 20
adapted to be pivotally supported, and said body
having an opening therethrough for holding fric~
tion material therein, and friction material in
said opening protruding at the opposite sides of
said body to frictionally engage a garment 25
wrapped around said body.
3. In a garment supporter, a hose engaging
yoke having an open end and a closed end, a sup
port on which the open end of the yoke is piv
otally carried, a projection on the closed end of 30
the yoke having an opening therein, a ?nger on
the inner periphery of said opening, and a resili
ent collar encircling said ?nger and projecting
from opposite sides of said projection.
'4. In a garment supporter, a hose engaging 35
yoke having an open end and a closed end, a
support on which the open end of the yoke is
pivotally carried, a projection on the closed end
of the yoke having an opening therein, a ?nger
on the inner periphery of said opening, and a 40
resilient collar encircling said ?nger and protrud
ing from opposite sides of said projection, said
collar having corrugations on the opposed pro
truding faces thereof.
5. In a garment supporter, a hose engaging 45
end and
otally carried, a projection on the closed end of
the yoke having an opening therein, a ?nger on
the inner periphery of said opening, and a resili 50
ent collar encircling said ?nger and protruding
from opposite sides of said projection, said ?nger
being of substantially rectangular cross section,
55
and said collar having its interior of rectangular
cross section of dimensions to closely conform to 55
said ?nger.
whereby the full inherent resiliency of the mate
rial of the collar will be afforded in effecting a
cushioning and frictional engagement with the
material of a garment wrapped therearound.
Referring to Figs. 7, 8, and 9, the garment or
hose, or stocking is designated D, and is shown
in light broken lines. Fig. 7 indicates the ?rst
65 step where the edge of the garment D is laid over
the top side of the yoke B. The yoke with the
garment held thereon is then turned through the
main body A between the legs l8 and 59, as
shown in Fig. 8, and continued on‘ to the straight
70 down position, as shown in Fig. 9. Thus the gar
ment edge is wound in the yoke B as indicated by
the light broken lines and engages both sides of
the rubber friction element or collar C, which
6. In a garment supporter, a hose engaging
yoke having an open end and a closed end, a
support on which the open end of the yoke is
pivotally carried, an end projection on said yoke 60
having an opening therein of rectangular out
line, a ?nger of rectangular cross section project
ing from one side margin of said opening, a collar
of friction material arranged on said ?nger hav
ing its interior of rectangular cross section of 65
dimensions to closely conform to‘ said ?nger,
said collar having diametrically opposed ?at
faces extending along side margins of said open
ing, and having side faces intermediate the flat
faces protruding at the opposite sides of said pro 70
jection to frictionally engage a garment Wrapped
around said projection.
prevents its slipping and becoming disengaged.
