Perko Oar Leathers

These Perko oar leathers protect oars from chafing and give your oars or paddles a traditional look. Use saddle soap to clean.

Oar leathers protect your oars' shafts when using round oar locks. The buttons prevent the oar from slipping through the locks. Sold in pairs. It is best to install the oar leathers using copper cut tacks. These leathers will surely save the life of your oars while providing you with a pleasant rowing experience.

Copper Tacks are now offered in lots of 25 for those installing oar leathers. (Tacks sold separately)

              Oar locks still slid over the leather strip. Not enoughleather to go around twice. Need more than one box of tacks unless you are VERY careful and don't ruin any.
              Remains to be seen how they hold up. First month of use...
              Honestly, I'm not sure theya re worth the money. Almost as hard to install as the rubber ones.

                    Collars should be 3/8" thick, then one loop will suffice. What they send isn't long enough to loop my oar 3 times. Not exactly "traditional" using copper nails, better to hole punch the leather and lace it up. Not to mention.. nails leave holes in your oars and influx of water will rot em out. My opinion.... waste of money. Ended up buying from another supplier.

                                I am pleased with the quality of leathers. Application not as easy as I expected, but I was able to do an okay job; more directions would be helpful. However, one box of 25 tacks is not enough--get two because they are extremely difficult to find.

                                I would never purchase this again. I would choose a much cheaper manmade material instead. They look classic but boy did I feel ripped off when it came. I am sure a local fabric shop/boot shop could get me scrap pieces of leather for free.

                                The salty way to quiet your oars and save the varnish. Do yourself a favor and get the copper tacks too. Don't use steel tacks especially if you are on salt water.
