Once screwed to the wall you can change skis in a couple of minutes. You could make them yourself if you are fairly handy, if not, I made 20 sets and am selling them for $35 US per set plus $9 shipping. A little more expensive than a few drywall screws but it is such a clean look. If this goes well I will make more after Christmas.

 

I am giving away 3 sets and shipping for FREE. Just post your interest and shoot me a pm.

 

The Kneissls are 220s and the top bracket is held by hollow wall anchors (toggle bolts) so they are very sturdy. There are heavy vinyl strips on the bracket to protect ski edges. All bolts and screws included.

I'm more interested, in a morbidly self-conscious way, in how old skis have to be for someone to consider mounting them to a wall. ;)  Like when you're driving down the street with your kid in the car, and he spots a vehicle with "antique" plates, and you say, "that was the family car when I was your age."

Joal,

 

These are nicely done. Thank you. I will get Sinecure's to him.

 

I showed them to a friend, is there any chance of getting a pair that can work on a 120mm wide ski? They will pay.

Those are the magic words.

 

I did not think I would have to do a wide ski version for a while yet but I would only have to make the active side wider.  I will get right on it. Right after the weekend that is. The white stuff is calling.

Dear Joal,

 

      I am trying to mount my Mother's and Father's old Solomons on a concrete wall.  I would be interested in two sets if you feel I could get them anchored to to concrete.  I would be using Tapcon anchors.

 

     Thank you.

post #37 of 54

With a little care it won't be a problem. Is the concrete below grade (basement) or above grade? Is the concrete damp proofed? Either way a gasket between metal and concrete would be a good idea. If you are going to use Tapcon, use the 3/16 hex head. I think I would be inclined to use plastic anchors. Hammer drilling the holes may not be precise so you might have to enlarge the bracket holes to get the skis parallel and depending on the camber of the skis they could touch the concrete so some gasket material should be used tip and tail also. I'll send you a pm.

Joal,

 

I have a set of antique skis I would like to mount in an X pattern on the wall.  Will your brackets work to do this?

 

 

post #39 of 54

It could work if you made a shim the same thickness as the ski and mount the bracket on shim for the second ski but you would be on your own for that. I tried 3 brackets, one in the middle of the first one and one at each end of the second one and that works quite well although a bit more metal shows. You could spray bomb the metal that shows with a similar color as the sidewalls. I will send you a pm.

Photo of Joal's system that worked great for my application in my "Man Cave"..... (note that I have some paint touch-up to do on the walls where I was a bit sloppy on my installation....will get a fresh photo up once that is complete).....

I second that, there is nothing worse than compromising a classic pair of skis by drilling holes through them.

The photos are inspiring. Thanks, Joal. I will be contacting you for some brackets once I confer with the family if we want to display one pair or two.

Hello Joal,

 

I would like to purchase at least one set, probably 2, of your brackets.  I will re-measure the width of my skis but they are 25 year old K2's that were 210's.  How do I go about buying them?  I am unable to find a phone number or email address to do so.  My email is daniel.deyear@dallascityhall.com

469-323-5814.

 

Thanks for the help,

Daniel

That's very cool.  Are you still selling these mounts?  I want to mount my kids' first pair of skis.

post #47 of 54

Hi,

I checked out skraks.com, and I'm afraid I don't see where / how to order the brackets.  Any info you can provide?

post #48 of 54

It never turned into more than a trickle. I ran out and am not making anymore. Sorry.

post #49 of 54

No reason these wouldn't work for skis

Hi JOAL - Your brackets look brilliant -- I think I can help you market them.  At the very least I'd be happy to pay for a pair if you could make them.

post #51 of 54
Ditto, I'd be in for a few sets!

Thanks. I am really busy right now but will rethink it this summer. I will pm you.
