  • Molded Oar Sleeve

    Q:

    I just installed 3 of these sleeves on my oars and find that I can't tighten them down very much. The nut begins to turn with the screw and I can't get an open or socket wrench on the nut. Does anyone have a solution for this?

      I actually found my own solution to holding the nut. I just gripped the collar and thus the nut through the collar with a pair of Vise-Grips. This held the nut and allowed my to tighten as much as I liked. It did not damage the plastic; it's tough stuff.

      A:

      That happened to me, but the sleeves were so snug on the oars that it
      didn't matter. On one of the oars, I wrapped a bit of HD duct tape on the
      oar first to make the fit tighter.

      A:

      If you orient the bolt properly in the sleeve, the sleeve itself will keep the nut from turning. If it's not working now, try turning the bolt around and feed it into the sleeve from the other direction.

      Dave, take a thin screwdriver blade, or something similar, and wedge it perpendicular to the shaft between the nut and the sleeve to prevent the nut from turning.

  • Molded Oar Sleeve

    Q:

    I have old ones that I inherited from the previous owner, and they appear to be to large for the shaft, and have been completely tightened down. Would you suggest a material to put inside the sleeve against the oar, or do I just need to get new sleeves?

      A:

      My personal opinion is that a tight fit is best here and that you may want
      to consider new sleeves that are properly sized. If you use a filler
      material, or a shim, so to speak, it might feel ok on shore and even in
      small rapids, but your oars can be subject to some pretty sizeable twisting
      forces in heavier water and you don't want your oar-right / sleeve
      combination to get out of alignment with the oar blade at precisely the
      wrong time.

      Brent, the easiest solution will be new sleeves. Here's an article for attempting to modify your existing sleeves - http://www.nrs.com/boating_tips/oarsleeve_oarright.asp

      I would suggest buying new ones that fit your current shafts. You really
      don't want these failing you on the river when you really need them.

        Bought a set of three for my Carlisle oars. 2 out of the three won't tighten enough to keep from slipping. The ny-lock nut spins, so the screw can not be tightened. I've tried shoving something next to the nut to prevent it turning, but it hasn't worked very well, and I shouldn't have too! A redesign is needed!!! I have another set of another brand that the molding around the nut is way better, but the plastic is cheap, and broke. Maybe these two companies need to talk!

            Comments about Molded Oar Sleeve:

            These are great oar stops as well as shaft protectors. There is some confusion on the NRS description that they are not oar stops and that those are sold separately... which I did. But in fact these are shaft protectors and oar stops all in one, and they are money for Carlisle oars.
            Highly recommended!

                              Provides protection, you can fit an oar right over it, and it keeps your oars quieter in the locks.
