My name is Heather Logan and I am the owner of Motion Sports and Safety Products maker of the plastic ice skating aid called the Skate Helper formally known as the KEZ ice scooter.
The idea for the molded plastic skate helper came about after a frustrated father tried to take his kids ice skating to local rink and there were no ice skating aids available. The family turned around and went home.
After talking with various rinks we realized arenas used all sorts of items as skate helpers from metal bars, pvc pipe, to little chairs, pylons, and milk crates. We realized there may be a market for a molded plastic ice skating aid. We spoke to arena programmers and got their input into what would make a great skate aid. We knew the metal bars and other skating aids can be dangerous and do not offer much stability for young skaters.
Our Skate Helper is being used by ice arenas all over Canada and the US. The City of Toronto has over 100 in their city arenas. The City of Vancouver has over 80.
The Skate Helper is 29 inches high and weighs 17lbs. The “NEW” feature of the Skate Helper is that it now locks into place when stacked.
The Skate Helper is by far the safest ice skating aid on the market. It is made from molded plastic and will last for years. We recommend the Skate Helper be used in a supervised environment.
