SeaSense Oarlock Socket Bushings
Good concept. Thought they would just slide right on. Nope. Too big to fit on my boat. Need something a little smaller. Fits the Oar locks good.

Fills a need
I bought this product because the WestMarine stocked oarlocks do not offer replacement socket bushing sets. So I had to purchase the WestMarine cast bronze oarlocks to get new socket bushings. Not cost effective. I "assumed" the SeaSense socket bushings would be meeting some industry standard for dimensions. And perhaps they do. But one or the other is out of tolerance. The SeaSense socketbushings fit loosely in the WestMariner oarlocks, while the original (white) WestMarine socket bushings are a snug fit. I continue to experiment to attempt to get a snug fit instead of having the bushing hop out - oh by the way, they sink immediately.
They are a great idea, they fill a need and I am glad to see them on the market. Thanks for carrying them.

Replacement OarLock Bushings
I had some old hard plastic bushings that fractured. I looked around locally and was unable to find some replacements. Found these and the reviews seemed decent so I took a chance on them. They seem like a good product for the money and Bass Pro delivery was prompt.

These inserts fit my oarlocks perfectly and saved me the trouble of having to install new oarlock. Great store for carrying these small items.
