The present invention relates to devices for
clamping skis.
An object of the invention is the provision of a
device for holding skis in desired form.
A further object of the invention is the pro
0 vision of a device designed to connect a pair of
skis together and to retain them in predetermined.
curved arrangement.
Another object of the invention is the provision
of a clamping device of the aforesaid character
10 which is designed to enable convenient predeter
mined curving of the skis.
A still further object of the invention is the
provision of a clamping device of the above char
acter which may be collapsed when not in use.
Still another object of the invention is the
provision of a ski clamping device of the aforesaid
character which is simple and durable in con
struction and e?'icient for the purpose intended.
Other objects and- advantages of the invention
20 will ‘become apparent as the description pro
In the accompanying drawing forming a part
of this speci?cation and in which like reference
characters are employed to designate correspond
25 ing parts throughout the same:—
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device in
extended ski engaging assembly,
Figure 2 is a side elevational view showing a
pair of skis clamped in the device,
Figure 3 is a vertical longitudinal section
through the extended device, and
Figure 4 is a transverse section taken on the
line 4-4 of Figure 2.
Referring to the drawing, wherein for the pur
pose of illustration is shown a preferred embodi
ment of the invention, A generally designates a
longitudinal body member embodying a main
centrally disposed tubular section It]. With the
ends of the main section It] are telescopically con
40 nected a pair of intermediate sections I I slidable
within the main section. To the outer ends of
the intermediate sections I I are connected a pair
of telescopically engaging end tubular sections
At the outer extremity of each end section I 2 is
formed a transversely disposed tubular cross arm
I4 arranged at right angles to the sections. Ad
jacent the ends, the cross arm I4 is formed with
a plurality of transverse apertures I5. slidably
disposed through the apertures I5 of each cross
arm is a U-shaped bracket Iiiformed vof round
bar metal having an arcuate offset II in the cross
bar portion. The side legs of each bracket I6 are
55 provided, at the ends, with screw threads I8
adapted to receive thereon wing nuts IS. The
vwing nuts I9 are disposed to adjust on the side
arms of each bracket an auxiliary tubular cross
arm 20 having apertures adjacent the ends
through which the end portions of the cross arm ' ,
legs are extended.
At the central portion of the elongated body
member A is secured a transversely disposed spac
ing member 22, in the present instance, in the
form of a flat metallic plate of elongated rectan
gular form having indentations 23 in the top and
bottom edges.
The device is associated with a pair of skis
by arranging each ski in a longitudinal position
thereon, the centre of each ski being disposed in 15
the indentation 23 in the top and bottom edges
of the spacing member 22. The end portions of
each ski, that is the portions at each side of the
centre extend through opposite side portions of
the brackets, the end portion of one ski being
disposed between the cross bar I4 and the cross
piece I‘! of the bracket while the corresponding
end portion of the opposed ski is disposed between
the cross bar I4 and the auxiliary cross bar 20 at
the end of the bracket. As the brackets are dis
posed in reverse positions the two skis are corre
spondingly mounted therein. After the skis have
been initially positioned, the thumb-screws l9 are
threaded to tighten the auxiliary cross bar 20
to tightly clamp the skis. If the natural longi 30
tudinal curvature of the skis suits the require
ment of the user, the thumb-screws are tightened
to a degree necessary to retain this curvature.
If, on the other hand, it is desired to increase the
curvature of the skis the thumb-screws are tight-
ened until the required curvature is obtained.
The curved oiTset I'l is designed to extend over
the ski poles when the skis are assembled, as
shown at Figures 2 and 4.
When the clamping device is not in use, the 40
telescopically assembled body A may be slidably
contracted so that the device may be stored in a
space of relatively small compass.
It is to be understood that the form of my in
vention herein shown and described is to be taken
as a preferred example of the same and that
various changes as to the shape, size and arrange
ment of parts may be resorted to without depart
ing from the spirit of the invention or the scope
of the subjoined claims.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
1. A ski clamping device comprising an elon~
gated extensible body member, a rigid spacing
member mounted transversely on the intermedi—
ate portion of the body, a rectangular shaped 55
clamping bracket slidably connected with each
end of the body member, and means whereby the
said bracket may ‘be tightened to curve the skis
relative to the transverse spacing member.
2. A ski clamping device comprising a telescopic
body member, a rigid spacing member mounted
transversely on the intermediate portion of the
body, crossmembers secured to the ends of the
body, a clamping bracket slidable transversely in
the cross members, a clamping bar associated
with and slidable on each bracket, and means on
the brackets for tightening purposes.
3. A ski clamping device comprising a body
member, end members telescopically associated
with the body, a cross member secured at the
outer end of each end member, a yoke bracket
slidable transversely in each of the cross mem
bers, a cross bar slidable in the arms of the yoke,
bracket tightening means on the outer ends of
the yoke arms, and a spacing member secured
on the intermediate portion of the body at right
angles to the longitudinal axis thereof and parallel
with the longitudinal axis of the cross members 10
and bars.
