Sawyer square top oar Tether ring?
I have always had Cataract oars and I used the oar tethers/leashes that have the metal ring attached to a cam strap around the frame. I really like using this style oar tether bc it allows me to ship my oars super quick and the metal ring just slides down the shaft staying out of the oar locks way.
I just got some new 1 piece square top Sawyers so now I can't get a metal ring on there since the blades are non-removable. I tried using a loop strap but I find that when I ship my oars the strap ends up getting tangled in the oar lock thus keeping me from moving the oars in and out as quickly. Anyway, I'm looking for a way to get a metal ring on there. I've considered cutting one in half and welding it on there but then I'd have to had sand the ring smooth which is a pain. So I've been looking for some metal ring that opens and then securely closes around the shaft. Any ideas or recommendations?
