Comments about NRS Spare Oar Keeper:

I'm on my third one of these. With the first one, one of the dual squeeze tabs on the buckle release mechanism broke off - not sure why. So, I bought a second one. Both straps have a plastic adjustment slide on them and both slides broke on me in Cliffside Rapid on the Middle Fork of the Salmon when I rubbed up against the left wall resulting in the loss of the metal ring on one of the straps and my spare oar having to be retrieved downstream. I called NRS and asked if they had replacement parts; i.e.: two plastic adjustment slides and a metal ring. They told me they don't sell replacement parts but they did send me out a third one for free. Way to stand by your product NRS! Thank you!

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was prompt and item was delivered in good condition. Customer Service was available and took excellent care of me.

    • Any float trip

    Comments about NRS Spare Oar Keeper:

    Easy to setup, easy to use, and one of the best tools for organizing my raft. Fortunately I have not had to actually release the oar yet so I can't comment on how easy it will be to remove in a hurry but I suspect it will be easy enough.

            Q:

            I understand the quick release strap and buckle, but how does the oar come out of the ring on the other strap?

              A:

              You just pull the oar out of the ring. It works like a scabbard of sorts.

              A:

              You put the clip end on the blade nearest the rower… When the rower gets in trouble s/he on clicks it, releases the blade then simply slides the handle backwards out of the ring.

              Gery, the handle end of the shaf goes through the ring, so it's easy to just slip the oar back out of the ring and put it into action.

              A:

              Once you release the buckle end, grab the oar and slide the handle end out of the ring.

              A:

              You simply slide the oar out after you have released the quick-release
              buckle. The quick-release must be nearer the blade end of the oar.

              A:

              The ring is slid over the handle end of the oar. Just slide the handle out after disconnecting the other end. I lost an oar in a rapid two weeks ago. It took me less than 5 seconds to deploy the spare oar.

              Simply slide the oar out of the ring assuming you used the clip on the blade end of the oar...

              The Oar Keeper adjust ~ 6" - 12", center-to-center of the frame side rail to the oar shaft.
