The ultra-strong, drop-forged NRS Atomic Aluminum Oarlock combines state-of-the-art technology with time-tested design. Pound for pound, this is the lightest, toughest oarlock out there.
  • Our drop-forge production process yields a much higher strength-to-weight ratio compared to cast or machined aluminum components, making the NRS Aluminum Oarlock both lightweight and incredibly strong.
  • It is extremely hard to "pop" an oar through the tines of the NRS Aluminum Oarlock, allowing you to row big water with more confidence.
  • If somehow you do pop an oar, the tines return to their original shape, so you're not left with a bent oarlock.
  • In drop forging, a metal blank is heated to a precise temperature, then the part is stamped out under extreme pressure.
  • The secret to the part's strength is the aligning of the metal's crystalline structure by the heat and stamping.
  • Durable anodized finish eliminates oxidation and discoloration.
  • Smooth finish protects oar shafts, rope wrap and oar sleeves from wear.
  • Includes split rings to keep the oarlock from riding up.

        Comments about NRS Atomic Aluminum Oarlocks:

        I bend my brass oar locks apart so I can get the oar in the lock just below the wrapping. You have to start at the blade to get the oar in these and I don't know if it will release the oar if need be.

            Comments about NRS Atomic Aluminum Oarlocks:

            The oar locks were great with respect to weight and smooth rowing. The down fall came when I popped an oar in an insignificant rapid hitting a rock with the oar. The oar became jammed to the point that I had to stand on the tube and stomp on the oar to disslodge it, leaving sizeable indentations in the oar sleeve from the oar locks death grip.At camp I compared both oar locks and they were both identical, so there was no apparent damage to the oar lock. Knowing a fair amount about aluminium from a past job it concerned me that stress to the aluminum may not be visable until it breaks/fails.My biggest fear was realizing the situation I could have been in on a big rapid or technical run.Back to the great old reliable NRS superston.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Customer service as usual with NRS was second to non when I called to return them. They were open and eager for the feedback on my experience with the oar locks.
            Yet again the reason I am a loyal NRS customer!
            5 stars for customer service and standing behind products.

                  Comments about NRS Atomic Aluminum Oarlocks:

                  These Oar Locks are for a 14' Cataraft. Use will be mainly on the Northwests Whitewater. They are very strong without adding extra weight.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Great Service and Delivery!

                        I instruct to scouts at a canoe livery. This oarlock demonstrates how a paddle (canoe stick) and an oar are different.
