be simple and easy to manufacture and one which can be
placed upon the market at a reasonable cost.
With these and other objects in view, the invention
consists in the novel construction, arrangement and for
mation of parts, as will be hereinafter more speci?cally
described and claimed, and illustrated in the accompany
ing drawings, in which drawings,

The arm 11 includes an inner section 18 and an outer
swinging section 19. The inner section 18 can be made
from plastic, wood, or any other desired material, and
includes a straight body portion having an offset head 20
which lies substantially in a horizontal plane when the
arm 18 is in its operative extended position. The inner
end of the arm is con?ned between the walls 12 and 13
of the bracket and this arm extends longitudinally of the
bracket and is parallel to the walls of the bracket. The
70 arm has formed therein adjacent to its inner end a short
longitudinally extending slot 21, and this slot receives a
pivot pin 22 carried by the walls of the bracket. This

pivot pin can be in the nature of a bolt, so that the same
can be removed, for a purpose, which will be later set
forth. The inner upper corner of the inner section of the
arm has formed therein a notch 23 and this notch is at
one side of the longitudinal center of the arm. On each
side of the pivot pin 22 and below the pivot pin, the walls
12 and 13 have formed therein pairs of aligned openings
24- and a selected pair of the openings 24 receives a rigid
From the foregoing description, it can be seen that I
have provided a support for coat hangers, which can be
folded down to an out-of-the-way position and out-of
sight position parallel with the rear face of a piece of
furniture and between the article of furniture and an ad
jacent wall. Thus, when the support is not in use the
same does not detract from the appearance of the article
of furniture or the room.

To use the bracket on the corner of the
furniture as shown in FIGURE 5, it is merely necessary
to remove the pivot pin 22 and the latch pin 25 and to
reverse the position of the arm 11 and to replace the
pivot pin and to put the latch pin 25 in the other pair
of openings 24.
