In the side-opening protector of Fig. 1, I prefer to provide the lower stem extension 6 and its hook 5 suspended within the protector, free of the walls as in Fig. 4, so that the [hook may de pend vertically when erected, and such construc tion will provide for ready application to and re moval of the yoke 12 therefrom. - 22, ?rmly adhering to strip 20 and to the inner face of the protector walls by_ overlapping exten sions, as clearly shown-in Fig. 4.

My invention may likewise be incorporated in other styles or types of protector casings, as for example, the front opening type of Fig. 9, where vention will be readily understood and appre ciated from the foregoing description. In its en in the protector A’ comprises a front wall Ilia and a rear wall Ila, the said front wall having overlapping ?aps 39 and 40 secured in closed po sition as by fasteners 4|, and adapted for oppo site opening movement for access to the pro tector, as particularly shown and described in my upper supporting hook and its lateral arms, the prior application, ?led February 12, 1936, Serial No. 63,543. Such protector may be provided with similar 15 edge reinforcements 29, and the garment sup porting means 5—6--'l may be incorporated as before with external reinforcement l8 and I9, and internal strips 2|] and 22. I likewise prefer to 20 provide the supplemental upper inner walls 23 as before. However, in connection with this type of pro tector, I prefer to ?xedly secure the stem 6 of the supporting means to the rear wall of the casing, 25 or more particularly, to the inner supplemental member 23 thereof, as by means of a single strip 42, extending from the central portion of the transverse ‘wire l2 downwardly over the said 30 ing the proper wall separation necessary to the application and removal of this type of protector. stem 6, terminating above the hook 5 thereof, and disposed laterally in adhesive engagement tirety it, being permanently connected with the entire protector is an inseparable unit, having permanence, stability, enduring life and resist ance to strains and with the advantages avoiding 10 the necessity of removal from the supporting hook of the protecting casing. The protector as a whole, is strong and durable, as the qualities of visibility of the contents, ex treme cleanliness and sanitation, and the special insects, dust, or foreign matter, together with ex treme ease and facility of use. It may be understood that it may be made in various designs, dimensions, or otherwise 20 changed or varied to suit particular needs, but that all such changes are to be understood as within the scope of the following claims. What I claim is: 1. In combination with a carrying stem having 25 an upper supporting hook and a lower yoke con necting terminal, and intervening ?xedly con nected oppositely disposed transverse arms; an enclosing plural wall casing having a top portion with the supplemental rear wall 23, as in Figs. 11 coextensive with and engaging over said trans verse arms and provided with outer and inner and 12. permanently attached reinforcing and connect ' Since the wall 23 is secured to the rear wall at its lower edge 24 by strips 26 as before, the stem 35 6 and its hook 5 will become ?xed to the rear wall for stability and proper location to coact with the ‘ yoke 2 when engaged with or disengaged from said hook through the front opening of the pro tector.
