    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.

          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.

                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.

                            Great idea but it has caused me problems. If the keeper gets off center, it hits the side of the oar stand and the oarlock will not rotate freely. I have had the keeper slide along the pin to the edge such that the keeper sticks out so far on one side that it hits the side of an NRS oar stand and jams the oarlock. I have been in situations where I have been unable to row because the oar lock was jammed. I went back to the fingernail breaking split rings.
