Keeps your oar blade in the right position for full-power strokes.
  • The spline of the Oar Right fits between the horns of an open oarlock to "lock" your oar blade in position for the most effective stroke.
  • You can still feather the oar blade by simply tugging the oar in so the spline of the Oar Right clears the oarlock horns.
  • For Carlisle and Cataract oars, use the Molded Oar Sleeve with the Oar Right for proper fit.
  • The Oar Right clamps securely to the Molded Oar Sleeve with two beefy stainless steel bolts. (Sleeves sold separately.)
  • Molded glass fill Nylon construction will give you years of troublefree service.
Note: Instructions that come with the Oar Rights say to put a screw (which is provided) through the tip of the spline into the oar shaft. This is only applicable if you're using it on a wooden oar. DO NOT do this on Carlisle or Cataract oars, it can damage the shafts.

Large: Adjusts from 2" to 2 1/4" (Carlisle & Cataraft Oars with Oar Sleeve)

Small: Adjusts from 1 3/8" to 1 5/8" (Bluewater Oars and Economy Oars using XS Oar Sleeve)
Material: Molded glass fill nylon
Weight: 12 oz (for size L pair)
Dimensions:
  • Large: Adjusts from 2" to 2 1/4" (Carlisle & Cataract Oars with Oar Sleeve)

      A:

      I just ordered the standard oar rights - sleeves and alignment bushings -
      and they work great. When I ordered them a few years ago I don't believe I
      had a choice of different oar rights, so my decision was pretty simple.
      Not sure this is much help, but wanted to respond with at least what I knew.

      A:

      They only come in two sizes, Large and Small. For your oars you should get the large

      You'll want to use the large size. I have the same oars with rope wrap and the large oar rights work perfectly.

    Q:

    Can these be used with the Sawyer Utility oars (that come with the oar sleeve already on them)? If so, which size is appropriate?

      A:

      I'm using these right now with rope wrapped Cataract oars with no problem. I've also used them on Carlisle oars with the sleeves so I think it shouldn't be a problem with the Sawyers.

      A:

      At 1 13/16" in diameter on the rubber sleeve, the Utility oar falls right smack in the gap between the two Oar Right sizes. You can squeeze the Small on the sleeve (it has some give) but you'll need longer stainless steel bolts.

      I do not have any personal experience with the Sawyer Utility oars, but the Sawyer website has the following info.
      OAR RIGHTS
      The Innovative Oar Right is a oar stopper with a guide that fits between your oarlock horns and keeps the oar blade in a vertical position. Helps position your oar for the most effective, powerful stoke. Can be used over your oar shaft protection of choice (rope wrap, plastic sleeve, etc.).
      Convertible version can flip up and out of the way when you want to be able to feather your oar or locked down for full-power strokes.
      The Stub version allows you to choke up on the oar to clear the oar lock for a quick feathering option. Features:
      • Oar stopper & guide for maximum stroke efficiency
      • Molded, glass filled nylon for durability
      • Easy to install 2 piece clamp on style with stainless steel bolts
      • Designed to fit over oar shaft protection
      Specifications:
      • Large Oar-Right: fits 1-7/8" to 2" diameter oars (most whitewater models)
      • Small Oar-Right: fits 1-3/8" to 1-5/8" diameter oars (most small craft models)
      • Convertible Oar-Right: fits 1-7/8" to 2" diameter oars (most whitewater models)
      • Large Stub Oar-Right: fits 1-7/8" to 2" diameter oars (most whitewater models)
      • Small Stub Oar-Right: fits 1-3/8" to 1-5/8" diameter oars (most small craft models)

          Comments about Oar Rights:

          Great product, rugged product , good for beginners on the oars , bad if you have technical sections where turning the blade is required but drawing the shaft in a couple of inches to clear oar right is no big deal .. As stated before , I use these on my boats to teach beginners , but these are also great for longer trips to reduce fatigue .

            Best Uses

              Comments about Oar Rights:

              These oar rights always keep the angle of the oar in the water correct, stops the oar at the correct arm row point, maintains a solid grip on the oar shaft, allows the shaft of the oar to rest in the oar locks unbound so if you hit rocks while drifting sideways the oar can slide in the oar lock instead of yanking the oar lock out of the mounting point. Very useful and well built.

                Comments about Oar Rights:

                I have a AIRE 9' cat boat and run class III & IV whitewater rivers and creeks. I was having problems gripping my oars in pushy water and was getting arm fatigue. Adding these oar rights have eliminated all of that and am able to save my strength for when I really need it. I wasn't sure if I would like them at first because I have gotten used to feathering my oar blades when rowing. I didn't take long to realize that this was a upgrade I should have done a long time ago. I don't think I will ever go back to a standard oar stop again. I just wish they made a small convertible oar right so when I'm just fishing I could flip them up and have my feather control. I have a friend that also has them on his cat boat he loves them to.
