If you're rowing from your cooler or dry box, especially if you're using our Flip Seat Mount, you'll like the extra height of the NRS 10" Oar Mounts. Now in high-tech hot-forged aluminum for a stronger, lighter, sleeker mount.
  • 10" Oar Mounts raise your oar locks up higher for more comfortable rowing when you're sitting on a raised surface.
  • Forging aligns the crystalline structure of the aluminum, creating a stronger oar mount.
  • This increased strength has allowed us to streamline the design, reducing the 10-inch Oar Mount's weight by 25% over the older model.
  • A tough nylon bushing allows the oarlock shank to rotate friction free, and the bushing is easily replaceable, Item # 91043.01.
  • You can easily adjust the oar mount's height by rotating it on the side rail.
  • Molded ridges on the gripping surface increase holding power on our 1 5/8"OD frame pipe.
  • Accepts 5/8" diameter oarlocks and pins.
  • A pair of oar mounts includes two U-bolts with nylon lock nuts and four washers.
  • Singles do not come with hardware. If you don't already have hardware, you'll need an NRS Frame U-bolt to attach the oar mount to an NRS frame.
Dimensions: 10" Tall
Weight: Single mount with hardware is 2.45 lbs.
Material: Hot-forged 6061-T6 aluminum alloy
  • 1 - Pair of 10" Oar Mounts
  • 2 - U-bolts with nuts and washers
  • Single does not include hardware

  • NRS Frame 10" Oar Mount


    Where is the 10" measured from? I have an old pair (20 yrs) that are too low but I don't know if they are 6" or 8". When measured with a tape it seems like they might be 8" if measured from the center of the frame tube. Please help as I would like to replace with newer model mounts but need to know if I should order 8" or 10".

      I just measured mine for you- 10" from the top of the frame tube to the bottom of an oar resting in an oarlock. I use Cobra locks if that matters.  Be sure to bring a wrench the first time you use these- they tend to spin and then work in after a while.  I fear over-tightening the U Bolts so I always carry a wrench and a spare bolt.

      Carl, take a look at this diagram - http://www.nrs.com/frames/Specs.asp#OarMount - It's also linked there in the More Information section of the product page.

      It is 10" from the top of the frame to the top of the mount.
      You can rotate the mount on the frame to make it lower if you need to
      but if you sit on a cooler or dry box the 10" works perfectly.

    Do the bushings fit the previous cast version of the 10 inch towers? Noticing some wear on my cobras I'd like to mitigate. Thanks!

      No, the bushings in the new aluminum oar towers are about 7/8" in diameter,
      which is much bigger than the holes in the older cast oar towers. If you
      want to run the plastic bushings, I think you have to upgrade to the new
      aluminum towers.

      No, MJ, the opening through the forged mount is specially formed to accept the bushing. The hole in the cast models is just large enough for the oarlock shaft.

      I do not have the previous version of these so I don't know anything
      about the previous version.
      I bought these and my oar locks fit perfectly.
      These look really nice and they work great!

    Where are the new oar towers made? USA or imported?

Comments about NRS Frame 10" Oar Mount:

I installed these 10 inch oar mounts this spring on my 14' NRS Otter after changing my setup so that I row from atop a cooler. I've used them once so far and they worked well although I have some adjustments to make to get them just the way I want them. They look good, are sturdy and were easy to install. They are quiet too. My only real concern is the plastic bushing and how long it will last - I guess we'll see.
