A roll of tape with a couple pieces of metal sitting on top of it? What's this got to do with skiing?

Tromano,

 

Skiing??? Skiing!!! This is not about skiing. It about your perceptual skills. Heard about the Rorschach Test ? This is a sub-section!

 

You have just won the , "most unusual perceive" item award !  You are unique! You see the background rather than the central figure!

 

Hope you like the next item!

Last correct answer is in! 

lagdwag not only identified the item, but also explained how it worked better than anyone else!

 

He will be the one to "watch" once the third item is posted!

 

Just a small reminder to all,,,,please for the sake of the others ,,,do not post what you think is the correct answer on the public post!

That is here!  Send proposed answers via MESSAGES.

 

Especially for the third item since many many people will just wonder what it is,,,,,, Let them ponder.

 

Now if you want to "joke", make creative comments, or just show how "original" you are,,,,go ahead and post answers,,,,,,and accept the cold reception of your peers!

 

Sleep well tonight,,,since the third item will be posted soon!

I don't think there is any need to give away the answers sooner; people just want to see the next item sooner, because they miss playing the game after answering.  If you want to release the answer sooner, I don't care either way.  By the way I now remember Item 1 being advertised/promoted, wasn't really interested in adding extra stuff to my skis though (except for those occasions when I wanted fog lights - fog adds a certain element of risk to sg skiing).

Answer for item 2.

 

Item 2 is the base of a front binding. There is a vertical groove on the vertical shaft of this picture. It acts as a , anchor point for a ball bearing ( under pressure via  spring) which rotates around that shaft! The ball bearing and spring are not shown.

 

If you look very carefully near the top of the shaft,,you will see a faint horizontal  line. That is where the ball bearing rotates about in a horizontal axis..

 

When the ball bearing is in the groove, the binding is set to hold the ski boots aligned with the ski! When the ball bearing goes out of that vertical groove,,,the ski boot is "released" from ski!

 

The following persons have identified both items; Stekan, garylk, davluri, quant2325,crgildart.

 

They are candidates for the Swix electronic digital wax iron.

 

Enjoy the third item.

The list seems incomplete, since I got both items as well.  It doesn't matter, since Item 3 has me stumped.

Vistman,

 

Herminator should also be on the list. Now to figure out item #3.
