There are various more or less practical alternatives for the storage of skis and ski poles on the market. None of these really convinced me. Then I had a flash of genius: Skis have metallic edges and there are magnets! After a few tests, the selected method proved reliable. At a height of 1 m I mounted a square pipe with the dimensions of 4 by 6 cm and a length of 1 m on the wall (drill, peg, screw on and done). The square pipe is the holder of the disc magnets S-35-05-N that can be placed anywhere.
After the skis were taken care of, I asked myself what to do with the ski poles. I solved that issue by mounting an angle iron farther up the wall and attaching some magnets. Most ski poles have metallic tips that stick to the disc magnets. But there are also poles with special tips that require a non-magnetic solution.
