March 23, W37. A. HAIMOWITZ I wm TAG RING FOR HANGERS Filed Nov. 5, 1936 INVENTOR Albert H'dimowzZz. Patented Mar. 23, 19 37 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE TAG RING FOR HANGERS Albert Haimowitz, New York, N. Y. Application November 5, 1936, Serial No. 109,304 6 Claims. (Cl. 40-11) This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a tag ring for hangers. The invention has for an object the construction of a tag ring upon ahanger which is capable of releasably holding tags and other sheets of paper. More specifically, it is proposed to characterize the tag ring by a vertical element which continues into a hook portion by which the hanger is supported and which simultaneously acts as a supporting medium for the tag ring. Another one of the objects of thisinvention is to characterize the tag ring by the fact that it continues from a portion bent back along the hook portion mentioned in the previous paragraph and terminates at the top of the hook portion and continues into a ring comprising several helical turns. These turns may be manually forced apart when a card or other sheet 30 For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth. In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:-- Fig. 1 is an elevational View of a pattern hanger provided with a tag ring constructed according to this invention. Fig. 2 is an edge elevational view of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is an elevational view of a modified form of hangerprovided with a tag ring constructed according to this invention. Fig. 4 is a fragmentary elevational view looking in the direction of the line 4-4 of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a fragmentary transverse sectional 'view taken on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4. l Fig. 6 is an elevational view of another type of hanger embodying said invention. 1 Fig. 7 is an elevational view of still another type of hanger embodying the same invention. With particular reference to Figs. 1 and 2 the tag ring, according to'this invention, comprises a vertical element l0 which continues into a hook portion H continuing into a support portion i2 bent back along the hook portion to the top thereof, and then continuing into a ring [4 comprising several helical turns 14, M etc. More specifically, there are two complete helical turns. It is between these turns that a card such as indicated by I5 may be supported. The tag ring, in this form of the invention, is applied to a pattern hanger. This pattern hanger comprises a continuation Ill from the vertical element Ill connecting with a bent portion 16 which in turn continues into an upward extending portion l'l terminating in a hook .element l8 which is adapted to hook on to theelement IE3. :The hook element l8 may be disengaged from the element I0 and then garment patterns such as indicated by dot and dash lines H) or other articles may be hooked on to the hanger. t In Figs33-5 inclusive a modified form of the invention has been disclosed which is very similar to the "prior form, distinguishing only in severalrespects. Inthis form of the invention the hanger also comprises a pattern hanger but has an arm ll which is devoid of a hook, such as the hook I8. Consequently, there is no arrangement for locking the patterns on the bent portion l6 of the hanger. In other respects this form of the inventionis identical to the previous form and similar parts may be recognized by the identical reference numerals. One of the turns of the ring 14, namely the turn M is formed with a reduced circularportion 20 upon which a member 2| is pivotally mounted. The shoulders at the sides of this reduced portion prevent the member 2| from sliding along the turn. This member 2| is provided with a cam portion 2| upon one end thereof, and the handle portion Zl upon the other end thereof. The handle portion may be manually moved to pivot the cam portion Zi so as to separate the turns as indicated in Fig. 5. This facilitates the engagement of a paper card or sheet of paper between the turns. The other forms of this invention may embody the reduced portion 20 and the member 2|. the hanger in its closed position. The hook portions II and I2 are slightly spaced from each other so as to form a loop portion into which the hook l8 may engage. In Fig. 7 another embodiment of the invention has been disclosed which distinguishes from the prior form merely in the construction of the hanger. This hanger is adapted to support clothes. It is formed by the element In continuing into a support portion I which in turn continues'into a substantially horizontal shoulder portion 25, continuing into a transverse brace portion 26 extending beneath the shoulder por-. tion 25 and which in turn continues into a cooperative shoulder portion 21 terminatingin a hook 28 engaging the portion 10. 'In other re spects this form of theinvention is similar to the previous forms and similar partsmay berecognized by the same reference numerals. It is to be understood that the tag rings l4 "and the cardl5 maybe of any desired size, also that the hangers may be used for hanging and classifying not only patterns of all kinds, but any other article. 7 While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit-myself to the precise constructions hereindisclosed-and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within thescope of the invention as defined ln'the appended claims. 1 Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:-' 1. A tag ring for hangers comprising a vertical 'element continuing into a hook portion of substantially inverted ,U -.'shape form continuing into a support portion bent'back along the hook portion to the top thereof, and then continuing into a wing-comprising several helical turns. 2. A tag ring for hangers comprising a vertical element continuing intoa'hook portion of substantially inverted U-shape form continuing into a support-portionbent back along the hook portion to the top thereof, and then continuing into a ring comprising several .helicalturns, resiliently maintaining contacting positions and adapted to be separated for the engagement of a card or sheet of material therebetween. 3. A tag ring for hangers comprising a vertical element continuing into a hook portion of substantially inverted U-shape form continuing into a support portion bent back along the hook portion to the top thereof, and then continuing into a ring comprising several helical turns, and a member on one of said turns rotative to separate them-to facilitate the engagement of a card therebetween. 4. A tag ring for hangers comprising a vertical element continuing into a hook portion of substantially inverted U-shape form continuing into a supportportion bent back along the hook portion to the top thereof, and then continuing into a ring comprising several helical turns, and a member-on one of said turns rotative to separate them to facilitate the engagement of a card therebetween, said member being pivotal upon a reduced portionof 'said turn; 5. A tagring for hangers comprising a vertical element continuing into 'a hook portion of substantially inverted U-shape form continuing into a support portion bent back along the hook portion to the top thereof, and then continuing into a ring comprising several helical turns, and a member on one of said turns rotative to separate them to facilitate the engagement of a card therebetween, said member being pivotal upon a reduced portion of said turn, the shoulders of the reduced portionserving to hold the member from sliding. 6. A tag ring for hangers comprising a vertical element continuing into a 'hookportion of substantially inverted U-shape form continuing into a supportportion'bent back along the hook portionto the top thereof, and then continuing into a ring comprising several helical turns, and a member on one of said turns rotative to separate them to facilitate the engagement of a card therebetween, said member being pivotal upon a reduced portion of'sai'd turn, and said member comprising a wedge portion at one end thereof and a handle portion at the other end thereof.
