• PVC 3" Heat shrink sleeving per metre


    There is only 1 item left in stock.
    Supplied in either pre-cut pairs or metre lengths, the tubing is simply slid over the loom of the oar and gently heated using a hot air gun (not a hairdryer) until it shrinks tight onto the loom. It is robust enough to prevent chafe from rowlocks, whilst allowing the oar to rotate and move naturally whilst rowing.
    Supplied in two sizes - 3” diameter and 4” diameter. These are the nominal sizes of the tubing as supplied and before shrinking. As a general guide the 4” tubing is suitable for loom sizes between 2-1/2” to 3-1/2” diameter and the 3” tubing for looms 1-1/4” to 2-3/8” diameter. The more the tubing shrinks the greater the wall thickness, hence, the better protection it offers.
