ATTORNEY , Patented Aug. 1e, 193s UNHTE ST'EÍS PATENT OFFIE 2,127,368 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 elements in relatively adjusted positions, and 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 3. An adjustable coat form, comprising a coat form body having front and rear panel sections and dash lines 30'. ‘ When the support elements Il’ and I2' are in a common plane the form 30 may be turned around 180° while the support elements Il' and O3 Cil l2’ remain stationary. 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 30 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 elements and so cause either said front panel sec 35 tion or said rear panel section to be extended port section Il’ the panel section Silb will be said support elements, comprising elements on the periphery of said support elements, and com tively stationary. 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.
