1 Ciaim. (Cl. 223—-98)
This invention relates to an attachment for wire clothes,
hangers, and is, in certain respects, an improvement over
the attachment shown in my Patent No. 2,931,548.
Among the objects accomplished by this invention are:
to provide a simple, inexpensive, and lightweight attach
ment for the common wire clothes hanger such as used by
dry cleaning establishments to return cleaned garments
to customers, and subsequently used in the home; to pro
angular portions of the hanger, whereas, in the present
structure, the single opening or slot receives both the
intermediate portion 13 and the end portions of the
hanger. In the present attachment, the horizontal part 13
of the hanger lies in the slot, and rests on the vreenfo‘rcing
cross pieces 3, 4 and 5 of the attachment, the latter pieces
therefore having ‘a double function, and their upper edges

being such that there is ‘a mutual pressure between the

used in combination with hangers of different sizes, and
which may quickly be attached and detached.
