  • Replacement Carlisle Foam Oar Grip

    Q:

    What is the length, inside diameter, and outside diameter?
    Asked on 8/21/2014 by Newby from Ogden, UT

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The grip is 6" long, with an inside diameter of 1 1/8". The foam thickness is 1/8".

      A:

      Overall length is 5 7/8”. They are already installed on my Carlisle oars so
      can’t give you the exact ID or OD. But the oar handle OD is 1 ¼” and the
      material is approx. 1/8” thick. The best way to install them is to spray the
      handle generously with hair spray, then they will slide right on. Hope this
      helps.

    Q:

    will these work on my kayak paddles?

      A:

      Roy, they're designed to fit on oar handles, which are about 1 1/2" in diameter. I think they would be too large for a kayak paddle.

      A:

      I would say most likely not. They are sized to slide on an oar handle and will probably be to big.

      A:

      Not unless you have an unusually large diameter kayak paddle. They fit (tightly) on Carlisle oar handles but would likely slip on a standard diameter kayak paddle.

    Q:

    How long are these grips?

      A:

      Don't know the exact length (inches) but they're slightly longer than a Carlisle plastic/aluminum oar handle, so they cover completely and cover slightly down towards the oar shaft.

      A:

      They are only 5-6" long, and nicely onto the grip area.

    Q:

    Will these fit on the two halves of a Carlisle kayak paddle?
    Asked on 9/10/2013 by Jerry from Ashland, OR

    2 answers

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      It depends on the diameter of the paddle shaft. The inside diameter of the Grip is 1". Take a look at the Paddle Grip Tape, Item # 50220.01, for a durable alternative.

    Installing oar grips?

      A:

      I warmed them up a little (I used a heat gun but a hair dryer would do it),
      sprayed a bit of hairspray inside, and then shoved them on. Place the end of
      the oar shaft against a wall so you can put your weight into it.

      Answered on 8/28/2013 by Wrench from Oregon
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      These oar grips are great. They go on easy if you use hair spray.
      Start by spraying the handle, both sides, (all around). Then quickly
      spray the inside of the oar grip and slide it on, all the way so that
      only about an 1/8th of an inch of the handle protrudes
      beyond the grip. You can have as much as you prefer protrude, it's
      what ever your preference is, I like to only have an 1/8th to 1/4th of
      an inch of the hard handle protruding beyond the grip. In my repair
      kit (ammo box), I carry an extra set of grips and a
      small travel size, (pump) hair spray. Hope this helps, see ya down
      river.

      A:

      To install oar grips you will need hairspray. Yes, that's right, hairspray. The hairspray acts as a lubricant when you slide the oar grips on, then as a glue when it dries out. Spray hairspray liberally on the handle and the inside of the new oar grip. Then slide it on. It will still take some effort, but it will go. Make sure it is all the way on so that the entire inside of the new grip is in contact with the handle. The hairspray should be dry in a few hours.

      A:

      Brian, it's easy to put these on your oar handles. For no-slip installation, lubricate the handle with some hair spray before you slide the foam grip on. When the spray dries, the grip is solidly anchored. Just FYI, the Cataract Replacement Grips, Item # 77307.01, also work on Carlisle handles. Use the same hair spray trick to install them; also, you many need to trim the length a bit.

      Wow, it's been a while, but yes, I think they do. They are pretty reasonable so go ahead and buy them and if they don't fit, just return them. NRS will not let you be disappointed - they never have disappointed me.

      A:

      Good question. I bought these a few years back for regular Carlisle oars
      which are 1 7/8 diameter whereas the economy is 1 3/8. As I recall they
      are a very tight fit so they may still work. at the risk of being trashy
      you could first wrap the oar with duct tape to make sure the fit was tight.
      They did save my hands on a five day Rogue Trip.

      Yes, I've used the foam grip replacements numerous times on my two piece carlisle oars, no problem. To help get the grips on, I've used anti-bacterial goop to help with them slide on .

        I've been happy with these over the years. Just don't let others who don't row put them in the sand when used with a tarp or shelter, keep the blade down!
        I carry a small travel size hair spray bottle to slip them on with, works slick.
