'1 Claims.‘
(Cl. 211-49)‘
The invention relates to racks for holding gar
ment hangers and has as an object the provision
of a device of this character which will hold a
considerable number of garment hangers, keep",v
5 ing them in order and available for convenient
use.
‘
It is afurther object of the invention to pro
vide a rack upon which garment hangers may
be stored or upon which they may be shipped
10
for sale.
.
Further objects of. the invention will appear
from the following description when read in con
nection with the accompanying drawing showing
, an illustrative embodiment of the invention, and

The upper ends of portions ll, 13 of the frame
of therack areshown as notched as at 26 and
terminatingvslightly above the stub shafts 2|, 22.
A springmember 21 is shown pivoted at 28 to the
loops 2d, 25 as shown in Figure 3 eccentrically to Li
the axesof stub shafts 2 I, 22.
Thespring 21 is formed into a bail at 29 and
the, eccentric connection‘to the loops 24, 25 will
have the result that when the handle 23 is- swung ;
to the upright position shown in Figures 1 and 2, ,
the-bail .29 will be pressed into the notch 26,
thereby urging the members l1, l8 toward the
T-head oi ‘the rack. On the other hand, when
the handle is swung to the position indicated by
dotted lines in Figure 3, the bail 29 will be caused ‘
to move in the dotted line path indicated in
Figure 3 to release the upper ends of the mem
vice with one hanger in place;

Figure 1 is a front elevation showing the de
from the mass when wanted for use.
To keep the hangers in order and ready to be
30 easily secured when wanted, the rack of the in
3
vention comprises a pair of rods H], H desirably
of metal. For a rack to hold substantially ?fty
hangers of the type shown at l2, the rods II),
II if of metal may be made about one-fourth
inch in diameter and desirably of metal that is
resilient.
At one end each of the rods II), II, which are
normally spaced apart, are curved as at [3, M to
be brought into close juxtaposition and extend
as at l5 a slight distance in parallelism down
4 O wardly, being then turned upwardly at It to pro
vide the portions l1, 18 parallel and in substan
tial contact.
The upper portions of the rods III, II as shown
in Figure 1 are made to converge as at I9, 20
45 and are formed to a T-head, which may be done
by bending the terminals thereof outwardly to
provide the outward standing stub shafts 2|, 22.
The portions of the rods where they are parallel
0 just below the T-head may be welded or pressed
together.
A handle and locking device is shown in the
form of a D handle member 23 provided with
eyes 24, 25 taking over the stub shafts 2|, 22
55 and revoluble thereon.
wardly to the point indicated at 32, Figure 1, and
subsequent hangers may be forced down into
contact with the present hanger until the rack‘
is full. The hangers will be placed into the rack
with the hooks all in one direction. When the
rack is full, it may be locked by movement to
vertical position of the handle 33 and may then 35
be stored or transferred to a position where
hangers are desired for use.
,
When wanted for use, the entire contents of
the rack may be hung upon a horizontal rod by
a single movement and the rack may then be
pulled oii from the hangers, leaving the whole of
the hangers upon the rod ready for use.
It is contemplated that the invention may be
utilized for shipping its component of hangers
from the factory where the hangers are produced,
in which case the entire number of hangers in a
merchandising establishment will have a home
in a rack when they are not in use.
The parallel rods Ill, ll constitute the body of
the device and obviously may be substituted by 50
a slat or bar of wood, plywood, or other material.
In this event, the equivalent of the portions I1,
l8 should be resiliently attached to the lower end
of the body of the rack.

Minor changes may be made in the physical 55

embodiment of the invention within the scope of
the appended claims without departing from the
spirit thereof.
I claim:
1. A garment hanger rack comprising: a body
portion; elongated clamp‘ means resiliently se
cured at one end to, and extending parallel with
said body portion; said clamp means being divided
and adapted to receive hook wires of a plurality
of garment hangers therebetween and means on
the body portion engaging the other end of said
clamping means whereby the bars of the hangers
disposed between the clamp means and the body
portion are resiliently clamped against said body
15
portion.
2. A garment hanger rack comprising: a body
portion; a pair of rods parallel with each other
and with said body portion and each resiliently
secured at one end to said body portion; said
20 rods adapted to receive the hook wire of a gar
ment hanger therebetween and means engaging
the other end of said rods thereby‘ resiliently
pressing the bar of the hanger disposed between
the body portion and rods against said body
ll) 01
portion.
_ 3. A garment hanger rack comprising: a body
portion; elongated clamp means resiliently se
cured at one end to, and extending parallel with
‘ said body portion; said clamp means divided to
30 receive the hook wires of a plurality of garment
hangers therebetween; and means to resiliently
and releasably secure the free ends of said clamp
means to the body portion; whereby the bars of
said hangers disposed between the body portion
and clamp means are resiliently clamped against
the body portion.
4. A garment hanger rack comprising: a body
portion comprising a pair of spaced rods converg
ing and secured together at their ends; a pair
40 of parallel, closely adjacent rods resiliently se~
cured at one end of each to the corresponding
end of said body portion rods, and adapted to
receive the hook wire of a hanger therebetween
and the bar of a hanger between said rods and
45 body portion; and means on said body portion
adapted to- engage and secure the other end of
said closely adjacent rods.
5. A garment hanger rack comprising: a body
portion formed of a rod bent to provide'members
spaced apart throughout the major portion of
their extent but converging to near proximity at
the ends of said body portion; a handle pivotally 5
secured at one end of said body portion and pro
vided with a locking means; the free ends of the
rod forming said body portion at the end op
posite to said handle being bent back to extend
substantially the full length of the body portion 1O
and centrally thereof, and adapted to be resilient
ly engaged by said locking means.
I
6. A garment hanger rack comprising: a body
portion formed of a rod so bent as to provide
members spaced apart for the major part of said 15
body‘portion but converging to close proximity
at the ends of said body portion, said rod being
bent to form an eye at one end of the body por
tion and adapted to receive a handle, a handle
pivotally mounted in said eye and provided With
a resilient locking means; the free ends of said
rod forming said body portion at that end of said
body portion opposite said handle being bent back
adjacent to each other to extend slightly beyond
the handle end of said body portion and centrally
of said body portion, catch notches formed near
the extremity of said free ends, and adapted to be
engaged by said locking means.
'7. A garment hanger rack comprising: an elon
gated body portion; a pair of elongated resilient
clamp members resiliently connected at one end
of each in close proximity to each other to and
adjacent an end of said body portion and extend
ing parallel with and normally in close proximity
to said body portion at the same side thereof; “
said clamp members being disconnected from
each other throughout their length and at their
free ends to permit insertion of the hook wires
of garment hangers between them at their free
ends with the bars thereof between the body 40
portion and members‘, and to be slipped down
wardly therebetween; the resilience of said clamp
members and connection acting to clamp the bars‘
