Application July 12, 1937, serial No. 153,286 3 Claims. (ci. 24a-21s) The invention relates to clothes hooks and more especially to self-latching and unlatching clothes hooks. The primary object of the invention is the pro vision of a hook of this character, wherein the construction thereof enables the holding of both articles of wearing apparel and head gear and sponding parts throughout the several views in the drawing, Referring to the drawing in detail, particularly either or both can be removed and on removal in the form of an arm or tine 43 for coaction with and between the arm or tine 4l and the of either the remaining article will no-t be dis turbed, the hook in its entirety being of novel construction and will be latched and unlatched in both opened and closed positions and articles when held by the hook when in a closed posi Vtion will be clamped so that the same can not become accidentally detached therefrom, the latching and unlatching of the hook being auto matically effected, . Another object of the invention is the pro Vision of a hook of this character, wherein the Figures 1 to 3 inclusive, there is shown a hook, wherein the keeper crown 40 formed with the jaw constituted by an arm or tine 4| has pivoted at 42 therein an auxiliary or supplemental jaw hook body 44. These jaws 4l and 43 in their 10 coaction with each other are for the clamping of a head piece thereby while the arm orìtine 43 coacts with the hook body 44. Thus the head piece can be removed from the hook without the removal'of the body garment or the latter may be removed from the hook body 44 without re moving the head piece from engagement by the ‘ tines or arms 4l and 43. The outer end of the auxiliary or supplemental arm or tine 43 has articles when hung thereby will be- protected laterally projecting therefrom rubber knobs 45, from damage and can be readily and easily re >being in the form of rollers and journaled on an moved, there being independent holding medi axle 46 fitted with the said end and functioning ums for body and head gear. to avoid damage to garments suspended from or carried by the hook. The arm or tine 4| at its outer end is formed with a rounded relatively _ A further object of the invention is the pro í-S vision of a hook of thisrcharacter, which is sim ple in its construction, thoroughly reliable and wide terminal 41 whichl avoids damage to an ~ efficient in operation, neat in appearance, com article in the use of the hook. In Figures 4 and 5 there is shown a further pact, readily and easily handled, strong, durable, and inexpensive to manufacture. With these and other objects in View, the in ' vention consists in the features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, which discloses 35 the preferred and modified forms of embodiment of the invention and pointed out in the claims hereunto appended. In the accompanying drawing: Figure 1 is a side elevation partly in section 40 of a hook constructed in accordance with the invention. Figure 2 is a front view thereof partly in sec tion. Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure l showing the hook in an adjusted open position. Figure 4 is a fragmentary elevation of modi ñed adjuncts of the hook illustrated in Figures l, 2 and 3. .

Figure 6 is a fragmentary side in section showing the jaws of trated in Figures 1 to 3 ’slightly ,55 Similar reference characters ~ elevation» partly the hook illus modified. indicate corre-Y modification, wherein the jaw constituted by an arm Yortine 48 at its outer end has fitted therewith the rubber knobs in the form of later- ` ally extended rollers 49, these functioning simi larly to the rollers 45. In Figure 6 of the drawing there is shown a still further modification, wherein a jaw formed 35 by the arm or tine 50 is of a shorter length than the arm or tine 4I and in this manner affording a greater opening capacity with respect to the auxiliary or supplemental jaw constituted by the arm or tine 43 or 48 in association therewith. In Figures 1 to 3 of the drawing the hook-like body 44 has formed thereon a finger hold 5l which projects therefrom and enables theV con venient manipulation of the hook for the open ing of the same by hand. What is claimed is: 1. A hook of the character described'compris ing relatively movable members, both movable on a common axis for opening and closing move vments relative to leach other, a keeper crown on one of the members and disposed over the other member at one end thereof, a latching means coacting with the crown for latching the mem bers in opened or closed relation to each other, a hanger bracket swingingly supporting the said 2 2,136,272 members, and an auxiliary member coactive with the members. 2. A hook of the character described compris ing relatively movable members, both movable on a common axis for opening and closing move ments relative to each other, a keeper crown on one of the members and disposed over the other member at one end thereof, a latching means coacting with the crown for latching the mem 10 bers in opened »or ?closed relation to -each other, a hanger bracket swingingly supporting the _said members, an auxiliary member coactive With the members, and stops associated with ,the bracket and said crown for coaction with one of the members for limiting the swinging action of both members having the commonaxis. 3. A hook of the character described compris ing relatively movable members, both movable on a common axis for opening and closing move ments relative to each other, a keeper crown on one of the members and disposed over the other 5 member at one end thereof, a latching means coacting with the crown for latching the mem bers in opened or closed relation to each other, a hanger bracket swingingly supporting the said members, an -»auxiliary member coactive with the 10 :mem-bers, .stops associated with ithe bracket and said crown for coaction with one of the members .-for limiting the swinging action of both members having the common axis, and resilient terminal means associated with one of the members.
