quick detach scratchers

I didn't have much luck with the StraightLine brand of scratchers (breaking/pulling out of crimp) so I ordered a set of DuraFlex and will give them a try. Since I will be mounting them on the ski there is no really good way to park them so I fabricated a set of brackets with a pin so I can quickly install/uninstall the scratchers as needed. Since scratchers generally are not used very often I will store them in my rear bag. I'll be trying them out maybe Friday or Saturday....as soon as the gawd damn wind goes down.

I had ski mount spring style. But they poped out of their parked position when I was backing up and I bent them. I used ski bolts this winter worked well. Will get a proper set next year

when I had them mounted on the ski's it was alright. This season when we were out riding with the ones mounted on the rails you could see the track acted like a vortex pulling the snow dust in. when mounted on the ski most of the snow dust did not enter the track area. So I moved them on to the rail.

You're on a switchback I assume? I was trying to figure out a skid mount ,but mines a shortie . By the time the scratchers would contact the snow, you're already at the snow flap lol. The ski mount for me worked awesome

I've had cable type and spring type mounted on both locations on this sled. Didn't make any difference which location...once dropped no overheating.

This latest install was designed to make a no tools quick detachable mount and to prevent the cables from self parking. I placed the mounting position far enough back so that the cable tips cannot jump up on the ski and park themselves. There's generally just a short window at seasons end when scratchers are required...like now after thawing and then refreezing. I wanted something quick and simple to manage the scratchers and I think this mount will do the job....I can easily deploy them when needed and will otherwise be stored in my tunnel bag.

I agree Rob, for next season I am putting mine on the rails. Did that for a weekend on my old Indy and worked slick and kept it cool in low snow conditions
