The novel unit is also made to balance for the
straight hanging of the necktie. . It is understood CH
that to hang straight the necktie fold should
occur directly underneath the hook pocket 13, so
that the necktie will have no tendency to swing
the hook in one or the other direction. The slot

being secured by forming the unit with its pro

become accustomed to it and ?nd it a useful and

While I have described the invention along
speci?c lines, various minor changes or re?ne
ments may be made therein without departing
from its principle, and I desire to consider such
changes and re?nements as coming within the
scope and spirit of the appended claims.
1. A unit for suspending a necktie from a rod,
nail or the like comprising a top portion in the
form of a hook, a downward continuation of the
hook shank, and a lateral extension of the shank
unit is an article of utmost simplicity, since it 15 terminating with a return section, the latter be

material. Further, it does not need a special sup
‘width to slidingly receive the necktie to a con
port, being easily mountable on the basic sup

ports mentioned, which occur frequently in the’
home, office or place of business. Being thin, the
unit can be mounted in as many places as afford
room along a rod, line or wire, enabling a com
paratively large number of neckties to be sus
pended in one compact space. Further, the unit
is independent as an article of manufacture or

shown in the drawing and can be stacked in large
quantities for economy in packing or shipping.

2. The structure of claim 1, the slot being
located to position the inserted necktie in ver
tical alinement with the pocket in said hook.
3. The structure of claim’ 1, the turn between
said extension and return section being at a point
laterally beyond the bill of the hook, whereby to
locate the slot to position the inserted necktie in
vertical alinement with the pocket in said hook.
