It will be noted that the two arms 5 are identical
with each other and are merely reversed end to end, so
that only a single mold is required to form these arms.
Furthermore the arms are preferably reinforced at the
slotted portions thereof by means of ?anges or beads 17.
This invention relates to garment hangers of the type
which have spring pressed parts urged outwardly away
from each other to grip parts of a garment such as the
cuffs of trousers or the waistband of a skirt.
