About

We got tired of losing tuning tools in the bottom of our luggage when travelling. Plastic tool boxes from the local DIY store were too big and fragile to put in our luggage and the fabric tool case that we found wasn't big enough the carry all the tools we wanted to take when on our holidays. So we designed our own.

We started out with a list of all the tools we wanted to take on a short holiday to repair our kit ourselves. Then designed a case to fit them in and keep them organised.

Lid

· 4x Long Files (up to 30cm) / Ptex Candles

· 4x Short Files / Diamond Files

Removable Divider Side 1

· 1x Full size snowboard Plexi scraper (up to 30cm)

· 1 Full size base radial file / P-Tex candles / spare snowboard binding straps

· 1x Metal base scraper

· 1x Short ski Plexi scraper

Removable Divider Side 2

· 2x pockets for miscellaneous tools such as tex pads, spare screws etc.

Base Compartment

· Space to fit edge tools, liquid wax bottles / rub on wax, brushes etc. Deep enough to hold some of the largest hand tools.

Made with 600D Polyester and lined with 250D Polyester Tarpaulin the DIY Case is durable enough to protect all your tools and keep them neatly organised.

The DIY Case is designed for recreational skiers and boarders that are starting to buy tuning tools to take care of their equipment when at home or abroad. Even if you are just starting out with the basics like an edge sharpening tool and some liquid wax, the DIY Case has plenty of slots and pockets to organize your tools as your collection grows.

Recreational skiers / boarders tuning their own or their family’s equipment for their holidays.

Usually you would only really need to wax your equipment once for every week of skiing / boarding, depending on the snow conditions. If you maintain your own equipment you would wax and tune your equipment at home before your trip, and then leave the wax and waxing iron at home to save weight and excess baggage charges. Take the essential tools for little maintenance jobs while away, like sharpening your edges or repairing any scratches in the base, and a bottle of liquid wax.

Ski Racers.

Take the essential tools on the mountain with you in your kit bag to sharpen your edges in between each run.

Don't have enough tools to fill the case?

We all end up travelling with "stuff". Ski locks, spare snowboard binding straps, phone chargers, USB cables, action cameras and accessories, sun cream..... Pop them in your tool case!

Your pledges will be used to get the final production samples made and then the first production run manufactured.

We will be making improvements to the case;

1. The Case will be made a little shallower than the one shown in the photos. We found that our first prototype was deeper than it really needed to be.

2. The pockets on side 2 of the divider will be made of either mesh or the Polyester exterior fabric.

Once our project is successfully funded we are aiming to deliver the first batch of DIY Case's in early October 2019.


Who Are We?

Funky Yeti is a UK based online Ski and Snowboard shop. 

As with so many of the best ideas, our story began as a casual conversation over a beer. After nearly 10 years in the industry, working for some of the UK's largest and oldest snow sports retailers in the UK and travelling to New Zealand to work for one of NZ's top snow sports retailers, Funky Yeti's founder Sean decided it was time to open his own shop and in 2017 Funky Yeti was born.

Risks and challenges

Once the project be funded we are aiming to start shipping the product in early October, however this is only an estimate based on current production schedules in the factory and assuming there are no shipping delays due to BREXIT.
