Claims:
1. I claim a generic tie hanger shaped like a question mark comprising of aluminum, iron, steel, or metallic alloy. See FIG. 1.

2. Metallic tie hook comprises of curved hook and a straight stem of at least three inches (3″) in length. See Parts A and B of FIG. 1.

3. At the bottom of the stem of tie hook, a metallic rectangular bracket consisting essentially of two braces is connected from the upper and lower inside ends of the bracket. At the right and left ends of the rectangular bracket, two covering caps are attached to hold the bracket together. See Part C of FIG. 1.

4. The rectangular metallic bracket of claim 3 is at least twelve inches (12″) in width; at least two inches (2″) in height; and its thickness ranges from five to ten millimeters in thickness (5-10 mm). See Parts D and G of FIG. 1.

5. The upper brace within the bracket is at least one centimeter (1 cm) in height and the lower brace of the bracket has the same size of one centimeter (1 cm) in height. See Part D of FIG. 1.

6. The upper brace of claim 5 has a tapering rubber attachment protruding from the entire length of the upper brace, which is less than twelve inches (12″) wide, and having a range of one to three centimeters in height (1-3 cm). Similarly, the lower metallic brace has a rubber attachment protruding upwards which is of the same size and dimensions as the opposite rubber attachment protruding from the upper brace. See Part E of FIG. 1.

7. Between the two protruding and tapering rubber attachments of claim 6, there is an expected space ranging between one to three millimeters (1-3 mm). From this space hang the ties which are held together by the tapering edges of the rubber attachments. See Part F of FIG. 1.

8. Claims one through seven above are considered to be my generic claim. See FIG. 1 and the same in Left-Sided Oblique Sectional View in New FIG. 2.

9. From the bottom of the stem of claim 2, I claim a species of the generic claim, an adjustable fork, see Part H of FIG. 3, which does not extend beyond sixty degrees angle (60 degrees) in inside width from the middle of the fork, see Part I of FIG. 3., one or two metallic connectors of at least three inches in length (3″) that hold each rectangular bracket, see Part J of FIG. 3. Each rectangular bracket is mirror image of the other and each one is the same in size and dimensions as described in claims 3 through 7, as shown in FIG. 1 and New FIG. 2.

10. From the bottom of the stem of claim 2, I claim another species of the generic claim, a radially extending rack and pinion rotating device. See Part K of FIG. 4 and Cross Sectional View of Part K of New FIG. 5.

11. From the bottom of such a rotating device of claim 10, four metallic connectors of not less than eleven inches (11″) long connect with four corners of the square shaped metallic brackets. At each corner of the square, there is a two-sided connecting brace, see Part L of FIG. 4, that holds together from either side, one rectangular bracket from each side such that the four connecting two sided braces form a square. See Part M of FIG. 4.

12. The bottom of this species, each side of the square is same as described in claims 3 through 7, Parts C through G of FIG. 1, except it further comprises of four corner-connecting two-sided metallic braces at the four corners of the square as shown in Part M of of FIG. 4.

Description:

BRIEF DESCRIPTION

This invention is to make sure that the ties that are hung on the tie hanger stay there and not fall off. The device is a typical tie hanger as in a coat hanger but in the bottom of the hanger a rectangular bracket is attached. Within the bracket, there are two braces, upper and lower braces. From each brace protrudes a rubber attachment towards each other from opposite directions leaving a space in between from which hang the ties.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF FIG. 1

A Tie Hanger is made of iron, aluminum, steel or metallic alloy. The upper portion of the hanger is shaped like a question mark. The curved hook is termed A in the diagram and the bottom of the stem, shown as B. A sturdier metallic alloy of rectangular shaped bracket about a foot in length, three inches high and within a range of two to three centimeters in thickness hangs [C] from the stem.

Within the Bracket [C], consists of two metallic braces (D), upper and lower, attached to the inside upper and lower boundaries of the bracket. From these braces, protrude tapering rubber flat attachments (E) from the opposite ends of the braces towards the middle. At the middle of the bracket, between the rubber attachments (E), there is a space deliberately left which is marked as (F). From this empty space (F), the ties are hung. At the extreme ends of the Bracket [C] there is a capping lid that holds together the bracket from right and left ends, marked as (G).
