    There is plenty of those here:

    just a simple search should give you plenty of ideas.

    I think Baileys even sell some scabbards for chainsaws.

    Make a 'scabbard' out of 3" pipe.. 3' should do.. slide the pole in.

    Make a bracket out of a couple barn door handles.. essentially a piece of flat, 1" wide, 1/4" thick.. has a couple inches of flat.. then a 90' up for an inch and a half.. andother 90 straight over 5", then another 90' down an inch and a half.. then another 90 and another 2".. kind of like a flattened omega / ohm symbol... slip the bar thru 2 of those brackets spaced near each other.. one under the other.... with a bunji from the lower one up thru the saw handle and back down, keeping the saw, blade down, and in the sleave..

    I ended up using ATV gun mounts with 90 lb magnets. I stick 'em to my bucket and it holds my string trimmer just fine. Pole saw might be a bit to long to run with it like that. You might be able to mount them front-to-back somehow though.

    I sure wish I had a place for a chainsaw scabbard. I ended up making
    a quick-release carryall box for my hood rack.

    Pictured is my axe holder. This could be a gun rack if you used open
    sided brackets instead of round ones here. That would work for a
    pole saw, too.

    I also carry a shovel vertically in a hole cut into one of my b/h steps.

    I am glad I read this post. I am going to steal both ideas. I still got hurricane Ike trees down that I have to deal with.
