Oar Sleeves

By Riverman

from Enumclaw, WA

Comments about NRS Small Molded Oar Sleeve:

Extremely hard to install, I actually called NRS for assistance with not much help. Finally I tried forcing the oar sleeve open with a large deep socket on the end of a 6" extension. Once I was able to force them one enough to start them on the Cataract Mini Mag shaft the rest was easy. They are held in place with Oar Rights. There is a gap of approximately 1/2" from completely enclosing the oar shaft, which I positioned on top in line with the Oar Right

      Factory installed sleeve a good ten inches longer.
      This does work, not bad to get on if you get 'em warm first. Impossible straight from cold porch where I had them stored.

      I thought I was in for a fight

      Comments about NRS Small Molded Oar Sleeve:

      When I first looked at these I thought I'd be in for a fight to get them on the oar shaft. I started at the end of the oar, did not use any lube (soapy water, hair spray, etc.) and spread the sleave with a flat wide blade screwdriver. When I got the open wide enough I slid it over the handle and forceably worked it down to the mark I'd made. Because of the material they are made of they slide easy enough. I did not want them to reposition themselves so I secured them with clamping down the oar stop over the sleaves.
      Not such a battle after all and they work fine.

        Comments about NRS Small Molded Oar Sleeve:

        Installed these on Mini Magnum oars to add protection to the shafts at the oar locks. First impression was the heavy duty poly plastic material would be very durable but stiff and hard to spread apart to slip on the shafts. But will the use of a small putty knife to start the spreading, the sleeves parted an inch or so--just enough to get them started on the shaft. They were then quickly slipped into postion. I am using them with Oar-Rights which alone do not clamp the sleeves tightly enough to hold them on place on the shafts. But adding a hose clamp at the top of the sleeves solved that problem.

            I used a piece of PVC pipe the right diameter to shove it onto the shaft.

            A:

            Slide something like a putty knife in there and twist it to open the edges of the sleeve. Once you get the sleeve started on the shaft it'll go easily.

            At first try you may think this an impossible task as I did.
            Use a mix of liquid dish soap and water, dip the sleeve in it and lube up
            the oar shaft and it slides on pretty easy.
            I carefully used a large screwdriver blade to open it up and get it started.

          Q:

          I got these onto the oar shaft, but there is a 1 1/4" gap in the sleeve. The oar locks are open horn shape, so will this still work?

            Sounds like you have a sleeve that is intended for a smaller diameter oar shaft. Mine did not have a gap like that. Check to make sure u have the right sleeves.

            Jack, what is the diameter of your oar shaft? This sleeve is designed for oars 1 3/8" to 1 5/8" in
            diameter. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, and we'll see how we can help you get set up properly.

            A:

            I have had no issues using the oar sleeves with either a round
            oarlock or a horn-shape oarlock -- but it sounds like you might need the
            larger size sleeve. I seem to recall that they come in two sizes. The
            gap on my sleeve is much smaller -- maybe a half inch.

            No threads. Just smooth inside surface. They are slit leastwise and require spreading apart to get them started on the oar.

            No threads just a smooth cylinder to protect the oar shaft from being
            scratched by the oarlock.--sk

            No they are smooth. There's a split down they're length. Essentially a tube with the cut lengthwise so they can expand over the oar shaft.

            No they are not threaded inside. It is just a plastic sleeve or tubing that is cut long ways on one end allowing you to spread it open and place around the our shaft. This sleeve needs a clamp or an oar lock on it to keep it in place.

            No they are not threaded. They are split down the side and slide on the oar shaft. The Oar Rite mounts over the sleeve and when tightened keeps everything in place. The sleeve then protects the oar shaft.

            Yes, they will fit. They'll stay in place most securely with the Small Plastic Oar Stoppers, Item # 1400 or Small Oar Rights, Item # 1404, over them.

            I have these mounted on 1-3/8" diameter Cataract oars (Mini Mags). There is a 3/8" gap between the long edges of the sleeves. Some arithmetic calculating the circumference of the two oar diameters should come up with the answer whether there will be a gap on you 1-1/4" oars. I found that spreading the sleeves apart with a putty knife helped a lot when first starting them on Mini Mags. Good luck.
