Y. Application May 1, 1944, Serial No. 533,561 y 1 Claim. 1 This invention is directed to an improvement in clothes driers of the portable foldable type, capable of use in supporting articles to be dried in any location, and more particularly designed for conveniently supporting articles in a bath room or like location for convenience. (o1. 21h-17's) 2 The drier is maintained in normally stretched open relation by connectors 1 between the‘bars I of one frame and the foot 3 of the other frame. These connectors include a coil spring 8, connected to an eye 9, at an appropriate dis tance between the pivot 4 in the bar I, and a The invention involves duplicate frames sup Wire length I0 connected at one end to the spring ported for spreading under relative pivotal move and formed at the opposite end with a hook II to ment, with the upper ends of the frames con removably engage an eye I2 in the foot 3. When nected by parallel strands on which the articles 10 the respective connectors are in place, the strands to be dried are to lbe supported; the lower ends 5 are held distended by the tension of the springs of the frames being provided with feet to form 8, which springs act to increasingly resist the normal supports for the drier, with the feet ar depression of the strands 5 under increasing load ranged so that the drier, in reversed position, thereon. Thus the drier automatically and pro may be connected to and supported from an ap 15 portionally resists any intending collapse of the propriate overhead ñxture, providing for ex drier under increasing load. ample, the convenient use of the drier in the bath The use of such a drier for convenient use room. yThe invention is illustrated in the accompany ing drawing, in which: Figure> 1 is a perspective View of the improved drier. in drying relatively small articles, which under restricted surroundings may be Washed in the 20 bath room or the like, is highly desirable, and the present invention lends itself more particu larly to this use by the following provision.
