Description:
Multi kick-sled The present invention refers to a multi kick-sled, which is intended to be used at first hand by jig-fishers for ice- fishing and for tours on snow and on ground without snow during the summer season. The kick-sled is thus special constructed in order to be used during all year seasons.

The multi kick-sled according to the invention will meet the marketing need for jig-fishers and for all persons, which love to travel on ices also during long tours. This increases also the possibility for older persons to take a tour with the kick-sled, since it is easy to take along and also in this way serves as a good support on slippery ices.

The competing products of today in the form of different kick-sleds is the traditional Swedish kick-sled made of wood.

There is also a later concerned kick-sled named Swedish- kick-sled, which also this is collapsible and to which it is possible to buy different accessories. However this kick-sled does not differ much from the common traditional kick-sled.

The object of the present invention is to provide a multi kick-sled of the type mentioned above, which when not used is easy to collapse, so that it requires very little room. The characerizing features according to the invention are set forth in the following claims.

Thanks to the invention multi kick-sled has been provided, which in an excellent way fulfills its purposes at the same time as it also is cheap and easy to manufacture. This kick- sled differs relatively much from the traditional kick-sled both what concerns its form and technical solution. It will also increase the interest for those, which have waited a long time to buy a traditional kick-sled just in spite of its size and possibility to store. This depends on kick-sleds wide possibilities to its use, for its storing and practical combinations in chosing different accessories. The kick-sled can be manufactured in two different types and these are

equipped with steering and without steering. One type is intended to be used on ice and the other for hillsides with snow and for open ground. The ice type will also be provided with a wind shelter, which is used as an accessories. For this type of kick-sled also runners will be found as accessories and also two separate pair of wheels for the summer season. Thanks to the unique structure of the kick- sled having a beam as a body, the same is very form rigid and the beam comprises both on its upper side and other side elongated grooves for application of both rails or runners and wheels and said grooves on the upper side of the beam are intended for a simple fastening in position of accessories needed for the specific use.

The invention is described closer below by aid of some preferable embodiment examples in view of the drawing enclosed, in which Fig. 1 shows a schematic perspective view of a kick-sled according to the invention which here is provided with accessories but which in this version is not steerable, Fig. 2 shows the kick-sled according to fig. 1 in a collapsed position, Fig. 3 shows the kick-sled according to fig. 1 in a view from behind, Fig. 4 shows a schematic perspective view of a kick-sled according to the invention, which is stearable, Fig. 5 shows a further embodiment example of the kick-sled according to the invention without steering and without accessories, Fig. 6 shows a view from behind of the kick-sled according to fig. 5 provided with runners and

Fig. 7 shows an embodiment example of the kick-sled according to fig. 5 provided with steering.

The kick-sled according to the invention is as mentioned above intended to be used both for tours on snow and on a ground without snow, i. e. it is special constructed in order to be used during all seasons. The body of the kick-sled 1 consists of an elongated beam 2 and the underside 3 of the beam 2 consists of and is formed as a ski 4. The ski 4 has two parallel elongated grooves 5,6 for rails or runners 7,8.

The runners 7,8 can be inserted into the grooves, which can have the form of slots 9,10, so that the runners 7,8 thereafter can be locked into the slots 9,10 from each side of the beam 2 by aid of transverse fastening elements 11,12.

Several openings 13,14 are provided in the beam 2 and in the runners 7,8 for these fastening elements 11,12. The runners 7,8 are both possible to be mounted to and dismounted from the kick-sled, so the same can be used both as a snow variant or-type and as a variant or type intended to be used on ground without snow, when two pairs of wheels, not illustrated in the drawings, are mounted to the beam 2. In order to sharpening the runners it is also an advantage that these can be easy to take off.

The upper side 15 of the kick-sled 1 comprises at least two T-grooves or grooves of dovetailed type 16, which in the example illustrated consists of five grooves and these extend in the longitudinal direction of the beam 2. Said T-grooves 16 are present, so that the other belonging details of the kick-sled can be mounted in a simple way.

During mounting of the details belonging to the kick-sled this takes place in that these are inserted with there fastening elements 17 for example in the form of bolts 18, into said T-grooves 16, whereupon the fastening elements 17 are placed into their position and are locked from above by aid a locking means 19, for example in the form of a nut 20 cooperating with the tread position of the bolt 18.

The stand 22, which is used at the kick-sled 1 without steering, i. e. without steering possibility, comprises a fastening 21, which can be mounted onto the beam 2. In said fastening 21 the stand 22 can be mounted. The stand 22 is also provided with T-grooves 23 in the same way as the beam 2, so that different accessories very easy can be mounted on the same. A stand 22 is composed by two vertical extending frames 24,25 having transverse rods 26,27, which are firmly anchored or connected into each other by aid of a number of locking elements for keeping together said stand 22.

The stand 22 is pivotably connected via a link-connection 28 into the fastening 21, so that the same can be in easy way to be fold upwards and downwards. A steering device 29 is centrally situated in the stand 22, and extends vertically from above and downwards and it is firmly connected together with a steering 40, which can be fixed in upper and lower positions. There are also two seats 30,31 on the stand 22, namely one seat 30 in the front and one seat 31 in the back and the later of which can be raised into an upright position when the trip with the kick-sled is ended. These two seats 30,31 are fixed in there one end by aid of link-connections 32,33 and 34,35.

The front seat 30 can be raised automatically when the stand 22 is raised from behind and in a direction forwards to an upright position. The legs of the front seat 30 are connected at their lower part in link-connections 36 and 37, which are lockable displaceable in the T-grooves of the beam 2. These pivotable connections 36,37 are in turn lockable in the beam 2, when said stand 22 and seat 30 are moved into their right position.

The back seat 31 is manually raisable and the leg stand 38 of the same can be pushed in place in a fastening 39 at the back of the beam 2.

In an alternative embodiment example of the invention, which is closer illustrated in fig. 4, the steering device 29,

which extend through the stand 22 in a direction vertically downwards, is provided with a steering possibility. Thus it is pivotable in order to be able to steer the kick-sled 1 by aid of its front portion 43 in relation to its back portion 45. Also here the steering 40 can be locked in a desired high position. In this embodiment example the front seat 30 can be raised manually, so that its leg stand 38 can be pushed downwards into position in its fastenings 41,42 immediately in front of the stand 22 on the beam 2. The back seat 31 has in this case the same function as the embodiment of the kick- sled lacking steering.

At this alternative embodiment example of the invention the steering front beam portion 43 has such a structure that the same cooperates via an arch of a circle 44 against the back beam portion 45. These two beam portions 43,45 are pivotably fixed relatively each other by aid of an articulated fastening element 48, which extends transversely through the whole beam 2.

On the front beam portion 43 a fastening 47 are provided on the upper side having a locking means 49. A displaceable axis 46 extends through this fastening 47 up to a steering rod in the stand 22. In order to achieve a steering of the kick-sled 1, said axis 46 is displaceable in the fastening 47 in a direction towards the fastening of the steering rod in the stand 22. The axis is thereafter locked in to this position at the fastening 47 of the front beam.

Another, further embodiment example of the invention is illustrated in fig. 5,6 and 7, in which the kick-sled 1 is provided with and alternatively without steering. This kick- sled has the same type of beam as in the earlier embodiment examples but is provided with a smaller fastening 21'in the middle of said steering device 29. The fastening 21'for the same is located in a fixed position on the beam 2 and is provided with a steering device 29 having a steering 40, which can be fixed in different high positions. The steering device 29 is anchored into the fastening 21'and the beam 22

by aid of a link-connection 28', in the same way as in the earlier embodiment example.

In fig. 7 a variant or still another embodiment example is illustrated of the embodiment example according to fig. 5, in which the front portion of the beam 43'is dirigible. Here the fastening 21'of the beam 2 is the same as according to the embodiment example of fig. 5, and the same has a smaller dimension. A stand can be eventually manufactured in a simpler performance but the steering is the same as the embodiment example illustrated in fig. 4.
