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.

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
