- Add on optional tray for extra storage space!
Note: The center slot used for tuning side edges will fit about 95% of skis. However, if your skis are fully rockered or abnormally thick, you might have a tough time fitting them in the slots.
Have tried several dedicated ski vises over the years and always ended up using yoga blocks for general mounting and tuning. Blocks worked, but these are sturdier, set-up and stow much quicker than vises, and there are no more metal shavings in my wife's yoga blocks!
Love the Happy Norwegian setup for both nordic and alpine gear. Absolutely the most versatile and best bang for the buck setup you can get!
It is incredible. Holds my skis tightly and never slips no matter what surface it is on.
I've been tuning skis (and boards) for the last 40 years, the first 25 professionally with the best equipment available. While these don't lock down your skis like a toko or quik vise, for all practical purposes they will work great for the home tuner. Having one device that works for skis and snowboards is awesome. Simple practical design seems bulletproof.
The Norwegian's have it figured out. Mr. Grippy (okay the name is a little silly) But Mr. Grippy is AMAZING and yes!, grippy. Avoid ski vices, skis coming out in the middle of filing, metal vices marking up your polished ski bases and edges. Mr. Grippy holds your skis in place on any surface. Makes it easy to wax and tune. Great for race skis and for fatter powder skis as well! The plastic and rubber surfaces protect your skis. Easy to clean up with a little alcohol. Added benefit -- lightweight and easy to pack - one fits inside the other and you can pack other gear inside as well. We love these vice replacements!
