On what basis does one use Rowlock Horns vs. Horns vs. Round oar locks?

Round oar locks prevent the oar from jumping out of the lock while rowing, but the oar must stay in the lock. Of you remove the oar from the oarlock socket, the oarlock comes with it. I bought the open type because the oars I made have a square loom, and I cannot get round oarlocks on them. I drilled a hole for the pin to hold them in place. Good luck.
Great product, poor instructions.
These are great rowlock horns, but if you read the reviews of this product at the JD website you'll see they are heavily criticized for the coupling pins simply falling out during use. I learned from the JD website, as well as other sources, rather than from the manufacturer, Perko, that the pins need to be peened at installation. What this means, people, is that after installation, you need to place the pin vertically with the head down, firmly against a metal surface. Take the round part of a ball peen hammer and gently hammer the other end of the pin until it "mushrooms" enough to hold it in place. After buying this product and scrutinizing the packaging I see that NO WHERE does it mention that you need to do that. Maybe it's common knowledge among old salts, but I'm new to boat building and rowing as a hobby. Perko has made a great product, but they need to add some very simple, but meaningful installation instructions to the packaging.

Nothing holds the pin....
There's nothing to secure the pin in placeThe pin drops after a few strokes.It's a pity because is sturdy, and very well finished.
Pins don't stay in.
Good oar locks, but the picture is a little miss leading. There is nothing that holds the pin in place. You would think that there would be a cotter pin or somthing to keep the oars from falling out! Not the case.
Exactly what I wanted.
I couldn't find this product locally, and wondered if it was even available any more. A plus is that it was made in the USA.
