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.

          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.

          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.

            I slightly modify the top of the oarlock (with a hammer) so the oar wont slip out, after that you are good for any white water trip, and for years to come.

              Comments about Sawyer Cobra Oarlocks:

              Been rafting for over 20 years and thought I would "upgrade" to these oar locks. These oar locks are much softer then NRS oar locks and your oars pop out in big water ALL the time, just when you need them the most. Thats why they are for sale on the NRS website. Save your money and stick with NRS super strongs oar locks.
