Description: Patent for a new and improved portable hat- and coat-hanger. This design utilizes two metal hooks, each of which fold into a metal handle, so that one hangs from a surface while the other hangs an article of clothing. One hook should be sharp enough to engage with a wall, while the other need not be sharp to hang an article from the back of a chair or pew.
