The PRO-RITE is a built in oar rite. It is more convient, smaller, and built in. One of the favorite features of the PRO-LOKS System.
The "quick release" oar stoppers provide quick and easy removal of the oar from the PRO-LOKS system. Allowing for convenient road travel. It is also an integral part of the pro rite system (an innovated design to rudder the boat and eliminate boat swing on anchor).

PRO-LOKS Oar Collar
The most unique part of the PRO-LOKS System, the PRO-LOKS collar is a true innovation in itself. Unlike any other system the rope wrap is removed. The oar then slides freely within the PRO-LOKS oar collar, allowing near friction free movement of the oar. Operation is very smooth and quiet, a true advantage of the PRO-LOKS system, Rowing, feathering and sculling of the oars is something to truly experience, uncomparable in the rowing industry. The oar collar is also the main part of the PRO-LOKS safety system. The collar is desinged to release from the stainless steel uprights pivot point under an unforseen catastrophic incident, such as an oar jamming into a rock or a submerged log. The oar is tethered to the PRO-LOKS shaft giving the oarsman an opportunity to retrieve the oar, he can than place the oar between uprights and row to safety.the collar can than be easily reinstalled to the PRO-LOKS uprights and continue rowing. You will immediately experience the many advantages PRO-LOKS has over a standard oar and oarlock system. Also desinged into the PRO-LOKS is a unique and simple system called the pro-rite. The oar stopper and oar collar mate together with an alignment notch effectively holding the oar in a ruddering position. While the boat is on anchor the pro-rite will reduce boat swing, an annoying phenomenon. This option is available upon request.
