AbstractA garment hanger is provided and includes an elongated body, an integrally formed, centrally located hook member, and clip assemblies located at each opposing end of the body. Each clip assembly includes a horizontal lower clip, a horizontal upper clip and a vertical end clip. Each vertical clip includes a downwardly directed anchor arm which is spaced a predetermined distance from an inner surface of the end of the hanger and defines a receiving slot therebetween, into which clothing may be selectively inserted. The inner surface of the receiving slot includes an integrally formed upwardly and outwardly directly spring arm which is spring biased against an inside contact surface of the rigid anchor arm. It is the resiliency of this spring arm that creates a clamping action within the receiving slot which is used to force any inserted clothing snugly against the anchor arm, thereby holding the clothing in place within the receiving slot. The resiliency also permits the spring arm to flex inwardly toward the hanger body during garment insertion.
