- Extra 9" or 12" Oar Pin
Q:There is a hole drilled below the nut. Is a clevis pin needed if the nut is nylock?Asked on 7/2/2013 by Sedgesprite from Juneau, AK
A:I've run just the nut for a few season with no loosening and no issues.Answered on 7/3/2013 by Anonymous
A:I have had no movement of the nylock nut. It is VERY secure! I'm not sure why there is a hole drilled there?

A:There is no hole in the pin below the nut. The nylock nut will hold very well; just check it from time to time to make sure the rowing motion hasn't rotated it.Answered on 7/2/2013 by Clyde from NRS
A:I have never had a Nylock nut come off/loose in 35 years of rafting.
However, I always carry an extra pin assembly just in case something bizarre happens.
Don't tighten the nut, back-off the tightness just enough to allow the pin to rotate freely.
Also, make sure the pin threads protrude past the nylon insert.
A:I've had no problem just using the nylon but, no clevis pin

A:Mine dont have the hole and the nylon lock nut has never loosened. It
wouldn't hurt to have a cotter type pin in there, just in case, but you
should notice right away if the pin starts to loosen or wobble. I wrap
tape around the threads to reduce sharp edges which also keeps the nut from
falling off. You should probably carry a full spare pin and hardware for
extended trips either way.

A:Yes, over time (a couple years) the nut will slowly back out with the circular rowing action. I commonly do 100+ mile floats in Alaska and would not want to lose this nut mid-trip (or my entire oar lock assembly to the bottom of the river if the nut slipped off). Better safe than sorry. If anything, get an extra clevis pin!Answered on 7/2/2013 by Anonymous

Comments about Extra 9" or 12" Oar Pin:
Oar locks are great for feathering class III. But We've seen an oar come out the top when a boat bounced off a rock. When mistakes are not an option...Pins, Clips & Stirups are the only way to go.
