1 Claim. (Cl. 223-85)
The present invention relates to a device for hanging
clothing articles, such as trousers or skirts, consenting to
same to be kept straight, and preventing same from tak
ing false folds, or being creased during its hanging.
Said device is characterized by a hangable and deform
able structure comprising two arms stretched in op
posite directions and located on the same plane so that
they can be moved apart or approached to each other,
said arms being at their free ends provided with means
adapted to hold the clothing article at opposite, corre
sponding points thereof.
According to a typical embodiment, said structure is
elastically deformable and is formed by at least one
piece of steel wire shaped in such a way as to provide at
the two sides of its hanging element, two short branches
divergently directed downwardly, which are then pro
longed into substantially horizontal arms, specularly sym
metrical with respect to the vertical axis of the hanging
element, at whose free ends are associated the means for
holding the clothing article.
Some practical embodiments of the device for hang
ing clothing articles according to the invention are illus
trated in the accompanying drawing wherein:

The two pieces of wire forming the hook 8
are curved so as to form two adjacent arcs slightly diver
gent starting from the top thereof. In order to make
the device more handy since it must be tightened by hand
to insert the forks 4 into the trousers P, at the bottom
of the branches 2 there are provided small indentations
9 for the ?ngers to readily grasp the device. Further
more to facilitate the insertion of the two branches of
each fork 4 into the openings of the trousers P, the
branches of a fork to be inserted into the opening of one
leg are made of a different length from the branches of
the fork which is to be inserted into the opening of the
other leg.
The skirt-holder according to FIGS. 8, 9 is exactly like
the trousers-holder as per FIGS. 5 to 7. However, the
arms 1 are provided at their extreme ends with means
for engaging the skirt which in the embodiment of FIGS.
8, 9 are made by small cylinders 10 provided with a
series of annular projections 11 in order to ensure a
perfect adherence to the inner part of the belt of the
skirt G. Said cylinders being made of various kinds of
material such as metal, glass, china, plastic or the like,
are mounted, e.g. by pressure, on the free ends of the
arms 1 which are substantially bent to form a right angle.
While in the skirt-holder of FIGS. 8, 9 the means for
engaging the skirt are directed downwards with respect
to the arms 1, in the embodiment according to FIG. 10
they are directed upwards which in many cases may re
sult in a more convenient arrangement because the height
of the skirt-holder is reduced and at the same time the
spective view'respectively, of a ?rst embodiment meant
room for the skirt is increased beneath the hanging point.
In order to give a clear example of the difference of
the various means which can be adopted for engaging the
to serve as trousers-holder;

ments, the one next to bracket 17 is prolonged beyond
said bracket with a hook-like part 21 which serves for
hanging the device.

described type, or of other similar types such as for in

What I claim is:
A garment hanger comprising a single length of spring
wire having an approximately 180° bend adjacent the
center axis of said garment hanger forming arms disposed
the right in FIG. 12).
in the same plane which extend from said bend and are
Both the holding means of FIG. 14 and FIG. 15 com
prise a metal plate 22 bent over itself and shaped in its
central part so as to engage, in opposite housings 23 pro
vided with conical recesses 24, an eye 25 connected to
the end of the branch 1 of the element on which said 10
being formed into a compressible suspension hook, one
of said arms extending rearwardly from said axis and
having an inclined branch which forms an acute angle with
plate is to be located.
For the trousers-holder, then, the plate 22 is prolonged
at the two upper ends of its bending on itself through a
double right angle folding, into two opposite parts which
form the two branches 26 and 27 of a fork, meant to be
inserted into the two legs of the trousers. In this case as
spaced from each other, said arms adjacent said bend
said axis, an indentation which is directed toward said
axis formed in said inclined branch at the bottom thereof,
the other of said arms extending forwardly of said axis
and having a further inclined branch which forms an acute
angle with said axis, a further indentation which is direct
ed toward said axis formed in said further inclined branch
at the bottom thereof, each arm extending from each in
dentation away from said axis at substantially a right
well, the branches 26 and 27 have ditferent lengths in order
angle thereto, each arm terminating in garment engaging
to facilitate their insertion into the two legs of the
means substantially parallel to said axis, said garment en
trousers, and along the outer face they are indented.
For the skirt-holder, it is the initially bent part of the 20 gaging means supporting and maintaining a garment there
on in tension with said suspension hook compressed to
plate 22 which holds the skirt by its belt, and which is also
exert an expansive force between said garment engaging
indented in its outer edge.
In the embodiment of the clothes-holder of FIG. 16
there are shown two metal elements bent to form an angle
in order to provide two longer branches 1 and two shorter
branches 2, the latter being convergent and connected
to each other by two brackets 28, 29 associated therewith,
which partially overlap, and are pivoted on a common pin
30. The branches 2 are divergently prolonged beyond
said brackets 28, 29 and on these divergent ends, outside
the brackets, there is anchored a tension spring 31 with
two terminal hooks, tending to move apart from each
other the two branches 2 in the part beneath the brackets
28, 29. Above the spring 31 one of the branches 2 is
prolonged so as to form a hanging book 32.
