The tough-as-an-ox yet adjustable and accommodating Aire Cobra Oar Lock was born for whitewater adventure. Made from marine-grade bronze alloy that resists corrosion, this beefy oar lock adjusts to your oar and rowing style. Extra-wide horns spread out the load to reduce stress, and an oval opening provides 10 to 15 degrees of vertical range of motion for super-comfortable movement.

- Q & A
Cobras for the win!
These are great oarlocks! Their shape adds a way bigger range of motion than do standard oarlocks. The only downside to them is if you catch your downstream oar in the shallows, you oar can crab to almost straight up and down, which can get you in a world of trouble. :( But for the most part, they save you the other 99 out of a 100 times. :)
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are great oarlocks! I have a set on my AIRE Jaguarundi and have had no problems with them. I really like the extra vertical range they offer. I would also recommend purchasing a set of oarlock springs especially if you use NRS oar stands. The oarlock shaft is a little longer than the stands so the is a little movement vertically that can be very obnoxious when your rowing, but the springs fix that problem.

what size are these? are they the same as the sawyer cobras?
The overall length is 7.75 inches with a 3.75 inch shaft. The inside horn is 2 inches for 1.875" oar shafts. This is the same size as the Sawyer Cobra.
