These high-quality NRS Superston™ Oarlocks are precision turned to fit oar mounts with a 1/2" diameter opening. These oarlocks do not fit NRS Oar Mounts.
  • Our proprietary manganese bronze Superston alloy gives you amazing strength and outstanding rebound memory.
  • The 3 1/2" long shaft is turned to a 1/2" diameter and is drilled for a split ring fastener (included). They do not fit in standard NRS Oar Mounts but can be used with NRS GigBob Oar Mounts.
  • Since these 1/2" models have a smaller diameter shaft, they are not as strong as the regular 5/8" diameter models. We do not recommend them for use in whitewater or with oars over 7.5'.
  • The horn opening is 1 5/8" with a 2 3/8" inside diameter.
  • Our regular Superston Oarlocks (Item # 77407.01) have a 5/8" diameter shaft that fits in NRS Oar Mounts.
  • Sold individually as well as in pairs, so be sure to order a spare.
  • Compare the measurements under the Specs tab to those of your oar shaft to ensure a good fit with these oarlocks.

    Comments about NRS Superston Oarlocks - 1/2" Shank:

    These oar locks are great for upgrading your pontoon to larger oars. After snapping several mini mag oars decided to upgrade to larger oars and these oar locks except them. Stoked to be able to run larger water and know you have real oars to back you up. Great product!!!

    Comments about NRS Superston Oarlocks - 1/2" Shank:

    I use these on my 13' pontoon fishing boat. They enable me to use my 8' counter balanced Cateract oars instead of the cheap, weak, flexable aluminum oars that came with the boat. The ones I purchased are to replace my older one and the one I did break last month after about 5 years of use (purchased in June of 2007). The broken oarlock ends had corrosion about 3/4 of the way accross. Most likely from a crack sustained from hitting a rock with an oar. I will carry the other older oarlock as a spare.

      Q:

      I have wood Sitka spruce oars 1.75" dia before the collar which I have yet to purchase. Will these oar locks work (#77408.01)?

        They'll probably work. If not, send them back.

        A:

        Will, the lock's inside diameter is 2 3/8", so sounds like unless this collar you will be adding exceed this it should work for you. Please note the warning that they're not recommended for long oars used in heavy water rowing.
