5 Claims.
This invention relates to hangers of the type
used for supporting various garments and is par
ticularly directed to a device of this kind having
clamping means for holding the garments in
position on the hanger.
For this reason it is
adapted for supporting gowns, light dresses, or
like garments which are apt to slide oiÏ or be
come detached frein the ordinary hanger.
may also be used for small articles such as stock
lîl«)‘ ings or the like which may be held in position by
the clamping means.
The object5 of this invention are to provide
an imprOved garment hanger having means for
holding the garments in position; to provide a
clothes or garment hanger with adjustable
clamping means for holding articles thereon; to
provide a novel ~arrangement cf applying clamp
ing means to the hanger to reinforce and coact
With the hanger parts; and to provide such ad
20 vantages in construction and in use as will ap—
pear from the following description.
In the accompanying drawing illustrating this
Figure 1 is a front view showing the hanger
25 With a garment supported thereon;
Figure 2 is an enlarged longitudinal sectional
view through the ‘central part of the hanger; and
Figure 3 is et cross sectional view.
The particular form of hanger shown in this
drawing comprises a garment supporting bar 5
which is preferably curved or formed in any
desirable manner for such purpose and in the
present instance is indicated as being formed
of wood. The bar is supported by a hook or sup
5 port 6 having a stem portion 1 which is driven or
?ts closely in a hole 8 in the center of the bar.
This portion is also preferably provided with in
tegrally formed cars or projections 9 which are
forced into the wood and serve as keys for holding
40 the bar in alignment with the hook.
My improved clamping arrangement includes
a saddle or bracket l0 having a central longitudi
nal portion Il which rests on the top of the bar
and has a hole for receiving the stem ‘I. The
45 lower surface of the plate or central portion Il
engagcs with the projections 9 to hold the bock
?rmly in position in the bar. The saddle I0 has
side ?anges [2 which extend over the sides of
the bar, thus forming a channel for receiving the
50 same. A pin or rivet I3 extends through the bar
and ?anges and serves to hold the parts in as
sembled position, this pin preferably passing
through the bar just below the inner end of the
stem 8 as shown in Figures 2 and 3. The saddle
Il) has upwardly projecting arms 14 and 15
(Cl. 223—93)
which are preferably ?anged to stiiîen the same.
These 'arms have holes i6 and I‘! adjacent to
their upper ends which provide bearings for the
clamping levers 18 and 19 which are pivotally
and slidably mounted in such bearings. T’he
outer ends of these levers are provided respec
tively With pads 20 and 21 of felt or the like for
engagement With the garment. The inner ends
of the clamping levers have holes 22 and 23 for
engagement with the stem 1 so that they may
move longitudinally of the same. The inner ends
are urged upwardly or in clamping position by a
spring 24 which is mounted on the stem 1 With
its lower end abutting against the plate H and
its upper end engaging With a U-shaped bearing member 25 which is slidably mounted on the
stem and the ends of which engage with the re
spective levers l8 and 19. 'I‘hese levers are pref
erably curved in cross section to strengthen the
same and the ends of the bearing member 25
are formed to ?t in the curved portions of the
levers as shown in Figure 3.
When a garment is to be hung on the hanger
the inner ends of the levers I8 and 19 are pressed
toward the bar to raise the outer ends upwardly
as shown in dotted lines in Figure 1. This may
be conveniently done by placing the thumb under
the bar 5 and pressing downwardly on the inner
ends of the levers With the ?rst and second
?ngers straddling the stem 1. After the garment
has been placed in position the clamping means
is released and the clamping members 20 and 21
will hold the garment as shown at 26 securely
on the bar.
While the illustration shows the clamping :25
members in engagement With the shoulder por
tions of the garment it may also be noted in the
case of forma] dresses having shoulder straps or
the like, the straps may be positioned inside of
the clamping devi‘ces and these devices will en- 40
gage with the bar, thus preventing the straps
from sliding off from the bar‘;
While this indicates one use of the hanger,
other uses will be readily apparent. It will also
be noted that While I have shown a commercial 45
or preferred form of this invention it may be
modi?ed, as for holding di?erent garments and
the construction may be varied without departing
from the scope of the invention as set forth in
the following claims, in which I claim:

stem, and yieldïng means coacting with the inner
ends of the levers for pressing the outer ends
toward the bar.
2. A garment hanger comprising a bar, a sup
