      Comments about Lynch Pin Oarlock Keeper:

      I took my new boat/frame out for first trip class lll day run on the Wenatchee and noticed the oarlocks (10" NRS towers) jamming. At the end of the trip I found both of the Linch Pins badly bent. Upon further inspection I saw there was not nearly enough clearance for the product to pivot. I can't say how they would work in other towers. Sorry, neat idea but could be disastrous on a multi day. Make absolutely sure these pins clear your towers in every conceivable angle.

      Bad pin

      Comments about Lynch Pin Oarlock Keeper:

      does no work on the older fishing frames. They bind and end up getting bent. I am going back to the split rings. They may work in the newer frames but the older steel frames they do not.

      • Lynch Pin Oarlock Keeper

        Q:

        How does the Lynch Pin Oarlock Keeper attach to
        the oar locks ? I have the NRS oarlocks and springs and washer
        but cannot figure out how the lynch pin attaches to this assembly.
        I'm wondering if I need to bend the lynch pin

          A:

          The lynchpin pops up on the assembly housing and then looks like the shape of a lollipop. You can insert the stick or metal bar through the hole in the lock and flip the open loop, lollipop like part back down.

          The oar lock should have a hole for the pin at the bottom of it

          A:

          The pin in the center of the ring goes through the hole in the bottom of the oarlock. The ring is spring steel and, by offsetting the ends, tension is placed on the ring. You have to lift/pry the pin away from the ring to insert it through the oarlock. Good luck.

        Q:

        Can you please tell me the diameter of the pin on these? They look identical to one I am missing from my "Alaskan" pontoon boat.
