Q:Do these have a bushing? Can they be used with 5/8" diameter oarlock pins?Asked on 8/5/2015 by josh from portland
A:Be careful about using cheap, smaller-diameter oarlocks with these stands. In a fight with rocks and strong currents, the oarlock stand will win every time! These things are built like tanks and won't budge (a good thing). I too have tried using bushings to fit cheap, West Marine oarlocks and EVERY SINGLE OARLOCK BROKE WITHIN THE FIRST 10 MILES. We ended our trip using paddles instead of sweeps. (Fortunately, we were in Class III water; otherwise, if would have been a disaster.)
My advice is to purchase 5/8" dia., forged oarlocks and fit them directly into the stands. Don't screw with bushings; yes, they'll fit cheaper oarlocks, but you'll either lose the bushings in the river and/or bust your cheapo oarlocks. IT'S NOT WORTH IT! Get the good stuff.Answered on 8/7/2015 by Anonymous
A:There is no bushing, Josh. The sleeve that accepts the oarlock snugly fits 5/8" oarlock shafts.Answered on 8/6/2015 by Clyde from NRS
A:Good morning. I ordered bushings when I ordered these just to be on the safe side. And they don't have bushings in them but they are already at size for the atomic oarlock. They are a beast set of oar towers I'm extremely happy with the purchase.

A:Mine did not come with a bushing. I'm using smaller oar locks now so I
ordered bushings for them. They did fit the oar locks I had been using on a
17'x54" Willie drift boat perfectly. (9' sawyer oars. 5/8" shaft).Answered on 8/5/2015 by Anonymous
A:They do not have bushings and a standard 5/8 shaft does fit in the pin hole.

Q:What angle does the pin sit at if using pins and clips. It looks like it is slanted much further than our other frame that has a similar set up.Asked on 6/29/2015 by Joni from United States
A:I have these on my cataraft. I’m using open oar locks not pins and clips. The height from the base of the oar stand straight up to the top of oar lock is 7”. I would say the angle s tilted approximately 20 degrees to the outside (from 90 degrees).Answered on 6/29/2015 by Anonymous
A:Joni, the outer upright portion of the stand, the side with the tube that holds the pin or oarlock, is 65 degrees from the horizontal.Answered on 6/30/2015 by Clyde from NRS
A:Hey Joni: Assuming that 90 degrees would represent vertical the
angle of the pin holder on the NRS Steel Oarlock Stand measures at 70
degrees. I compared it to a DRE cast aluminum oarlock stand which
measured at approximately 77 degrees. The DRE stand was more
difficult to get an accurate measurement due to its construction. So
I agree that the NRS stand is at a greater angle (more slant) than
some other stands.

Q:Does this mount inward or outward?Asked on 5/22/2013 by t from Utah
A:They mount outward. Think about how the oar sits in the oarlock once
the oarlock stand is mounted.Answered on 5/22/2013 by Anonymous
A:It should angle away from the boat.

A:You mount it so that it tilts outward.Answered on 5/22/2013 by Clyde
And set your ours (with stoppers so they are no closer than about three
thumb widths apart at the closest point when they are both 90 degrees and
horizontal.Answered on 5/22/2013 by Anonymous
A:I am wondering why you ask?
Look at the angle of the socket. If you mount it inward, it will angle the wrong way. Inward and there will be a big loss in leverage as the oar locks will move close to your hands.
Something must have prompted the question. Did you have an unusual idea in mind?Answered on 5/22/2013 by Anonymous
A:I mounted it outward, which certainly works. I never considered inward, which I think would put the oarlock at an awkward angle.

A:The oarlock stand mounts out. Slanted outward toward the water. It makes it nice and wide for rowing and better balance on the oars.

A:It mounts outward. Very sturdy, happy with the product. In use for 3 years now, no problems at all with it.
