My invention relates to a clothes stick and has
for its primary object the provision of a stick
that is adapted for use particularly in home
laundry operations where articles of clothing are
picked up from hot suds in a washing machine
or tub and fed into a wring'er to remove the ma
jor part of the water therefrom, or for the han
dling of clothes from one tub to another or the
like.
,
Another object of my invention is the provision
of aclothes stick which is positive in its opera
tion and which is so constructed that it can not
be drawn between the rolls'of the wringer, but
through the use of which the articles of clothing
can easily be fed into'the 'wringer between the
rolls without danger of the stick being‘drawu
between the rolls and which will easily release
the clothes from the endof the stick as they are
fed into a wringer;
