Title:
IMPROVED PINCH GRIP HANGERS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2003070067
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
An improved pinch grip pant and skirt hanger of reduced depth is formed with an offset between the hanger bar and the mounting of the pinch grip to thereby reduce the depth of the hanger and pinch grip and provide greater density of garments during shipment. A novel I-beam having a web curved in two dimensions is used to provide an enhanced stiffness to weight ratio. Two separate guards are provided to prevent inadvertent opening of the pinch grip by an adjacent hanger, including a moveable guard, formed by arches on the fixed and moveable jaws below the pivot axis of the pinch grip. The pinch grips also define a nesting feature which, together with the reduced width, significantly increases the number of hangers that can be shipped in any given cube of volume. The hanger is particularly adapted for magazine feed and the automated loading of garments.
