SKI HOLDER
Leonard Windheim, Brookline, Mass.
Application March 13, 1937, Serial No. 130,769
2 Claims. (Cl. 224——5)
The present invention relates to ski holders.
Many an accident has taken place during the
carrying of skis to and from one’s home and the
skiing grounds. It is difficult to hold the skis
always vertically in front while carrying them,
so that one is tempted to sling them atilt over
one’s shoulder or even to hold them horizontally.
A slight turning, under such conditions, is liable
to cause one end or the other of the skis to col
10 lide with a passing stranger or a piece of frangible
property.
It is a nuisance, furthermore, to be
compelled to devote one or both hands to holding
the skis, as it interferes with other use of the
hands.
It is accordingly an object of the present in
vention to provide a new and improved ski holder
with the aid of which the skis will always be held
substantially vertically upright, while leaving the
hands free.
When the skis touch the person, furthermore,
20
they are liable to leave their waxes or other coat
ings on the clothing, and another object of the
invention, therefore, is to provide a ski holder of
the above-described character that shall protect
the clothing while the skis are carried about from
place to place.
portions of the skis into a bag M. A strap l6
connects the upper and lower ski-holding means.
In the preferred embodiment of the invention, the
lower end of the strap It may be secured to the
bag in any desired way, as by sewing, at [8. In 01
the embodiment illustrated by Figs. 4 and 5, the
lower end of the strap It may be provided with
an opening 20 for receiving the strap l2. The
upper end of the strap 16 may be similarly pro
vided with an opening 22 for receiving the strap 10
it. By adjusting the position of. the strap ID on
the skis, a space may be provided between the
strap l6 and the skis large enough to permit a
person’s arm to be passed therethrough, and the
shoulder may be placed just under the strap I0, 15
as shown in Fig. 1, so that the skis may be sup
ported from the shoulder. The bag l4 and the
skis therein may thus be carried in substantially
vertical position, as is also illustrated in Fig. 1,
while leaving both the person’s arms free.
20
The use of the bag I4 protects the person’s
clothing from the waxes and the like on the skis,
which is not true of the modi?cation shown in
Figs. 4 and 5.
The upper end of the bag it may be provided 2.5
Other and further objects will be explained

skis. The upper end of the bag is necessarily
enlarged with respect to the restricted lower por- 30
The invention will now be described in connec
tion with the accompanying drawings, in which
Fig. 1 is a perspective View of. a ski holder em
bodying the present invention in its preferred
form, shown carried by a person, with skis and
poles carried thereon; Fig. 2 is a side elevation
and Fig. 3 a front elevation of the same; Fig. 4=
is a view similar to Fig. 2 of a modi?cation; Fig. 5
is a view, upon a larger scale, of the modi?ca
tion shown in Fig. 4, detached from the skis and
the poles shown in Fig. 4; and Fig. 6 is a section,
upon a larger scale, taken upon the line 6-6
of Fig. 3, looking in the directions of the arrows.
In both the preferred embodiment of the in
vention, illustrated in Figs. 1, 2, 3, and 6, and the
modi?cation of Figs. 4 and 5, the ski holder com
prises means for holding a pair of skis 2, 5 near
one end, say the upper end, as at 6, and means
for holding the skis near the other end, say the
lower end, as at 8. In both illustrated forms of
the invention, the ?rst-named means may be a
strap IQ with which to secure the skis together
at 6.
The second-named means may also be a
strap for securing the skis together at 8, as shown
at 12 in Figs. 4 and 5, but it is preferred to insert
55 the lower ends and the enlarged intermediate
tion of the bag, in order to receive the said en
larged intermediate portions of the skis. The
lower parts of the bag may be provided with an
opening 28 to permit water produced by melted
snow to drop therethrough.
35
Poles 3!) may, of course, be carried along with
the skis. In ‘the preferred embodiment of the in
vention, they are carried in the bag M. In the
modification, they are held together by the same
straps It! and I 2.
40
Further modi?cations will occur to persons
skilled in the art and all such are considered tov
fall within the spirit and scope of the invention,
as de?ned in the appended claims.
What is claimed is:
1. A ski holder comprising a bag having a re
4r
stricted lower portion for receiving the lower
portions of a pair of skis and an enlarged upper
portion for receiving the enlarged intermediate
portions of the skis, means for closing the bag 50
over the enlarged intermediate portions of the
skis, a strap for holding the skis near their upper
ends, and a strap for connecting the lower portion
of the bag with the ?rst-named strap, there being
a space between the second-named strap and the 55

skis large enough to permit a person’s arm to be
passed therethrough and to permit the person to
carry the bag and the skis therein in substantially
vertical position while leaving the said arm free.
2. A ski holder comprising a bag for receiving
the lower portions and the intermediate portions
of a pair of skis, means for closing the bag over
the intermediate portions of the skis, and a strap
for connecting the bag with upper portions of the
skis, there being a space between the strap and
the skis large enough to permit a person's arm to
be passed therethrough and to permit the person
to carry the bag and the skis therein in substan
tially vertical position while leaving the said arm
free.
