This is the oar lock you've been waiting for. The cobra's wide horns have greater load area for much less stress on the oar-lock horns and increased durability. The elongated, oval opening allows for an additional 10-15 degrees of vertical range while keeping your oars snug in the locks. Made of a specially formulated bronze alloy for superior strength and proven by professionals throughout the world. Deluxe models are threaded with a lock-nut keeper to reduce play. Oars with rope wraps or oar sleeves can sometimes fit snugly in oarlocks. Compare the measurements under the Specs tab to those of your oar shaft to ensure a good fit with these oarlocks.

  • Good Control

Cons

  • Heavy
  • Uncomfortable Shaft

Best Uses

  • Day Trips

Comments about Sawyer Cobra Oarlocks:

In order to use this, I would have to change the oarstands. So it's kind of a one-boat deal, requiring yet another purchase. If I didn't switch stuff up from boats to other boats, it would probably be fine.

    Comments about Sawyer Cobra Oarlocks:

    Particularily great when you have to retract or raise an oar quickly as when in technical runs in large boulders. Have been using old style clips that I couldn't easily retract oars. Did the Middle fork again this year in low water and these oars make life easy.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Prompt and as advertised.

      Have not used it enough to give a good response. I did have to bend them so they fit my oar shafts better so far a very good product

        Comments about Sawyer Cobra Oarlocks:

        I've only done family trips with young kids with these, but in conjuction with the convertible oar rights they have been great. A lot better than what I used to use as a guide 20 years ago. I haven't done anything bigger than Class III with them, but they've never popped out on me so far. Being able to row standing up is nice - gives us short peopel the ability to see over the gear.

        Did not work for my setup

        • Too Much Friction

        Best Uses

        Comments about Sawyer Cobra Oarlocks:

        The Cobra oarlocks did not work with my rope-wrapped oars. I used them on the first day of a recent river trip, and fortunately I had a set of Superston oar locks along that I could replace the Cobras with.

        The ridge and the large surface created so much friction that it was rather difficult to rotate my oars, which provided more of a workout than I wanted in the upstream winds.

        I will grind down the ridge and polish the inside of the oarlocks and definitely give them another try, since I like the way the oars rest in them.
