ADJUSTABLE CLOTHING FORM
Bernard Oestricher, Brooklyn, N. Y.
Application April 28, 1937, Serial No. 139,398
Il Claims.
This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in an adjustable clothing form.
The invention has for an object the construction
of a coat form which is adapted to be adjusted so
5 as to ñt suits and coats of different sizes.
More speciñcally, the invention contemplates
the construction oi a coat form which is char
acterized ,by a coat form body having a panel
,section which is pivotally mounted at one edge,
10 `and support elements within. said body and panel
section and associated with means for holding the
elements in various adjusted positions for adjust
ing the panel section relative to the body.
Still further the invention proposes the provi
l5` sion of a socket for a post associated with one of
said support elements to support the form.
Another one of the objects of this invention
resides in so constructing the support elements
that they may be adjusted within the body to
20 support the body and panel section in various po
sitions.
For further comprehension of the invention,
and of the objects and advantages thereof, ref
erence will be had to the following description
and accompanying drawing, and to the appended
claims in which the various novel featuresof the
invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing forming a ma
terial part of this disclosure:
Fig. l is a perspective view of an adjustable>
30
coat form constructed according to this invention.
Fig. 2 is a transverse vertical sectional view or”
Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary enlarged detailed view
of the support elements used in the form and the
adjusting means thereof.
Fig. 4 is a. sectional. view similar to Fig. 2, but
illustrating a modiiìcation of the invention.
Fig. 5 is a bottom elevational view of the vcoat
40 form shown in Fig. 4.
Fig. 6 is a similar view to Fig. 2 but illustrating
another form of the invention.
The adjustable coat form, according to this
invention, comprises a coat form body HJ having
a panel section lila which is pivotally mounted at
one of its edges, namely, the top edge Mib. Sup
port elements Il and l2 are arranged within the
body i0 and are mounted on the body and panel
section. A means is provided for holding these
50 support elements ii and l2 in various relative
positions for adjusting said panel section rela
tive to the body section. This means comprises
(Cl. 223-68)
i Ii. These arm portions are formed with parallel
slots I 5. Support screws. i6 engage through these
4slots and are mounted upon the support element
l l . Each of these support screws is providedwith
a washer il and with a spring i8 coaxially mount 5
ed thereon acting between the Washer il and the
bracket portion I32L for resiliently holding the
parts together.
A standard I9 is ñxedly mounted on the sup
port element l l and threadedly supports a screw 2t] 10
upon one end of which there is a large head 2l.
This head 2l is provided with peripheral serra
tions 22 by which it may readily be gripped and
turned. The head 2i is provided with a hub por
tion 2 la which engages against a projecting por~ 15
tion 53a on the support element I3. The head 2i
may be turned for extending or retracting the
screw 2u and so forcing apart the support ele~
ments Il and l2 or allowing these support ele
ments to move closer together. A socket portion
23 is mounted on the bracket I3 and is adapted to
receive a support post, indicated on the drawing
by the dot and dash lines 2d. This support post
is for the purpose of supporting the coat form.
The socket 23 is provided with a clamp screw 25
by which the socket may be clamped upon the
post.
The coat form l0 may be constructed of con
ventional materials. The panel section Hla is
separate from the other portions of the :form body
and hingedly connected thereto by a cloth or
other flexible hinge strip 2'6. This hinge strip is
attached to the adjacent edges of the form body
and the panel section. The support elements li
and l2 are in the form of a partition and extend
transversely across a portion of the form body.
The support element 42 is iìXedly attached to the
panel section túa, while the support element Il
is iixedly attached to the form body it. The dot
and dash lines It’ in Fig. 2 indicate an adjusted
position of the coat form which is obtained by
turning the headZl. Other positions may also
be obtained. Gravity is depended upon to cause
the panel section and the form body to move to
gether as permitted by the contacting hub portion 45
2 I2L and projection ma.
In Figs. ‘l and 5 a modification of the inven
the support element l2 and having parallel arm
tion has been disclosed in which an arrangement
has been made to adjust the form in a manner
slightly different to that just described. Ac- 50
cording to this form ofthe invention it is possible
to cause the front portion or the back portion of
the form body to be extended outwards or in
wards. There is a form body 3d which has sev
55 portions ita extending over the support element
eral panel sections, a front panel section 3Ba 55
a bracket i3 ñxedly mounted by screws ld upon
2
2,127,368
and a rear panel section 30h.
These sections are
pivotally connected with the form body 30 by
flexible hinge strips 3| mounted at adjacent
edges.
Support elements Il’ and I2’ are adjustably
mounted upon the panel sections 30ab and 30h.
The adjustable mounting is accomplished by
tongues 32 upon the peripheral edges of the sup
port elements Il’ and I 2’ engaging into corre
10 sponding grooves formed upon the inner walls of
the sections 30a and 30h. Springs 33 are con
nected between the panel sections 3l!u and 30b
for normally urging these sections together.
The support elements Il’ and l2’ are of truly
circular shape, disc shape, and are adapted to
be interchanged one with the other merely by
rotating the coat form 3D when the sections Il’
and l2’ are in a common plane.
With this ar

means for adjustably connecting said support
elements with said body so that the support ele
ment with the socket is selectively connected with
one of said panel sections.
2. An adjustable coat form, comprising a coat
form body having front and rear panel sections
which are pivotally mounted at one of their
edges, a socket for a post or the like to support
said form, a support element mounted on said 10
socket and rotatively engaging one of said panel
sections, a second support element rotatively en
gaging the other of said panel sections, and
means operative between said support elements
for adjusting the relative positions of said sup
port elements whereby said coat form body may
be rotated on said support elements and said
means manually operated to adjust said support
rangement it is possible to so position the parts
20 that the support element I2’ is connected with
the front panel section 3l)a as shown in Figs. 4
elements and so cause either said front panel
section or said rear panel section to be extended 20
outwards or inwards.
and 5.
he adjustment means between the ele
ments are identical- to the previous means and
the parts may be recognized by the same refer
25 ence numerals. When the adjustment means is
operated, the support elements Il’ and l2’ may
be separated relative to each other. Since the
support element I I’ is mounted on the post 24,
when the adjustment is made the panel section
30 fillïL will move outwards as indicated by the dot

In Fig. 6, the flexible hinge strip 26' is at
tached within the body ID to the upper portion of
the back Illc and to the lower portion of the back
Ind, at the edge Ill‘Ob to permit adjustment of the
. lower back panel section Il'ld of the coat form
body, by the screwhead 2l of the adjusting de
vice. In other respects this form of the inven
tion is similar to that disclosed in Fig. 2.
While I have illustrated and described the pre
ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be
understood that I do not limit myself to the
precise constructions herein disclosed and the
right is reserved to all changes and modifications
coming within the scope of the invention as de
fined in the appended claims.
