Springs and Washers

These stainless steel washers and stainless steel springs will help keep your oarlocks from squeaking, reduce wear on the oarlock shaft and cushion vertical shock loads. Stainless steel washers are a close fit over the 5/8" oarlock shaft. This snug fit helps to keep waterproof lubricating grease (purchased separately at your local hardware store; we suggest white lithium grease) from washing out and grit washing in.


  1. Slip one washer over the oarlock shaft, and then liberally apply waterproof grease to the shaft.

  2. Slip the oarlock shaft into the oarlock stand and add the second washer.

  3. The extra washers can be used to tighten up the spring tension, if needed.

  4. Add the spring below the second washer. The spring is held in place with the split ring.
