I've seen lots of versions of oar tethers/keepers out there, and I'm pretty sure a simple small diameter cord tied to the oarlock with a perfect diameter loop (big enough to slide, small enough to not slip over the oar ring) would work. NRS makes fancy ones, but I know OARS-Dories and a lot of private boaters run with parachute cord-type ones. Any problems with those being a hassle removing/putting on? Anyone have suggestions?

p cord

I like using the p cord for mine because you can strap em down real tight with a jameson hitch and rear em back for the high flow days with a bow shank backed up with a fishermans. Just watch out that the shank doesnt slip over the oar ring or else youll be going for a lollidagger.

Ive always used a 6 foot cam strap. Cam it around the oar and tie the tail; to the frame with a bowline and there you have it. Oar leashes in an instant.
