The Rubber Oar Stopper keeps your oar shaft from sliding through the oarlock. Fits both Carlisle and Cataract oar shafts.
  • The 1" thick rubber stopper goes right over the oar shaft, not over the Molded Oar Sleeve.
  • The 1 5/8" inner diameter is a tight fit on the shaft. Use either soap and water or hair spray to lubricate the stopper and shaft to slide it on. As it dries, hair spray also gives an adhesive effect to hold the stopper in place.

    Why don't you sell these to fit the smaller (1 3/8) carlisle oars that you sell?

      The manufacturer doesn't make them. Try the small Plastic Oar Stoppers, Item # 77406.01.

    I meant to say that I have oar-rights. So do I need these stoppers in addition to the rights?

      A:

      No. But you should use these instead if you have rope wrapped oars. Oar
      rights can sometimes get you in trouble. I learned at a young age to row
      without oar rights. Having the blade locked in to that position is too
      confining. Rope wrapped with the rubber stopper is the way to go.

      A:

      You don't need the donuts since the Oar-Rights screw onto the oars and act as stops as well as line the blades up in the water.
      Good luck!

      A:

      No, the Oar Right will keep the oar from slipping through the oarlock.

    If I have oarlocks on my rope wrapped oars, do I need these oar stoppers also?

      A:

      no you don't need rubber stoppers and oar locks if the oar locks are the
      oar right style. I prefer the stoppers to locks as it allows me to feather
      the blades of the oar.

      A:

      Not needed if you have oarlocks. You might want to swap them out for
      rubber stoppers down the road some time should you decide to start
      feathering your oars.

      A:

      The purpose of the stoppers is to keep the oars from sliding out of the
      oarlocks. They help maintain a consistent distance between your hands but
      still allow you to ship the oars into the boat when needed. If you already
      have some method of "stopping" the oar from sliding out you would not need
      these. Some folks do fancy rope braids as stoppers and those serve the
      same purpose.

      A:

      If the oarlocks are attached to the oar you don't need the Rubber Stopper. When the oarlock is attached to the boat the Stopper prevents the oar from sliding all the way out through the lock.

      A:

      When you first get them they are very tight. You have to exert some muscle to put them on. They will stay in place really well for a couple of years (obviously depends on how much you use your boat) but eventually your rope and the oar stop wears and things have to be replaced. I use my boat around 50 days a year and my oar stops are about two years old and still going strong. I store my boat indoors. Storage in sunlight will degrade the material faster.
      Good luck. My prediction is that you will like these much better than the plastic stops.

      If you put the stopper over the rope wrap then it stays put. You have to roll it over.

      A:

      Of course it depends on diameter of sleeve. The stops will ride up the shaft but not down. I have two pairs of spruce oars on one I've glued a leather belt above the stop, on the other just a stainless adjustable hose clamp, the leather is more elegant.

      I have them installed over my rope wrapped oars. I have standard diameter cataract oars and 3/8" diameter wrap. You will have to use some soapy water to get them on but they won't move around after you get them in position.

      It's not easy but it's doable. Rather than sliding them over the rope, you have to roll them over the rope.

            Bring a quiet approach to rowing , I use these on drift boats for setting oar length also to quiet down oar movements while fishing , Cons - these can be a bear to install on the sleeves .. Apply lube and I use a PVC pipe and a buddy to push them onto the sleeves . All an all great product .

                          Comments about Rubber Oar Stopper:

                          I discovered these oar stoppers in a forum about land paddling, which is basically stand-up paddling on a longboard or skateboard. They fit perfectly as replacement road grips for the classic "Kahuna Big Stick". The rubber allows the land paddle/stick to both push and to brake. As the part of the rubber that contacts the road wears down over time, the stoppers can be rotated around to evenly distribute the wear. I bought several pairs to have on-hand, as I "paddle-skate" a lot over distances and tend to wear them down. They're a little hard to roll onto the paddle end, but it can be done by hand without tools. All in all, they're a simple product that works, and can be used across a few different paddling disciplines, apparently.
