20120018463TILT AND SLIDE SPACE SAVINGS CLOTHING STORAGE DEVICE AND SELF-LOCKING CLIP FOR ASYMMETRIC HANGER ACCESSORY - A family of space savings storage devices for hanging, storing and removal of any item that can be hung in a vertical plane from an appropriate hanger hook is disclosed. The devices consist of a pair of downwardly diverging legs forming either an inverted V-shaped or U-shaped receiver. The fixed angle of divergence of the legs ranges from 60 to 120 degrees. In one embodiment that angle can be varied. On the undersides of the legs are attached sockets from which items can be hung using appropriate hooks attached to the body of a hanger. The spacing of the sockets can be equal or variable. Increased spacing on the lower segments of the legs for the inverted U-shaped receiver, where the legs are nearly vertical, prevents hung items which are generally bulkier at the top, or hanger components which also can be bulky from interfering with each other as the spacing can be adjusted to allow such parts to lay one above the other. At the top of each device is a slide element which can be placed over a glide or horizontally disposed support post. By moving the slide element to either side of the vertical or equilibrium position on the support post, these devices by simple principles of Physics tilt. From basic geometrical considerations, items hung on the upwardly tilted leg horizontally spread apart, while those on the more vertically oriented leg move together. This allows easy access to items suspended from sockets on the more horizontal leg. Devices disclosed can be constructed where the horizontal space requirement in the vertical position is no more than in the tilted and slide position. Thus loading or unloading items from these devices can be done in a fixed horizontal space. The inverted V-shaped or U-shaped also confers excellent visual inventory of hung items. Also disclosed is a self locking spring clip that improves the use of Asymmetric Hangers for long or short trousers and skirts. Asymmetric Hangers with this modification and a modified hook to fit the hook and socket system employed here lend themselves well to use with the storage systems disclosed. Other hangers with appropriate means for attachment to the devices can also be used.01-26-2012
