Sweep Handle Clamp Assembly:
The Carbon Sweep Handle Clamp secures the handle in the oar shaft. The curved carbon clamp is hidden inside the oar shaft with the hex head bolt on the outside. This item includes one sweep handle clamp, complete with M6x20 bolt and M6 washer.
Remove the old handle clamp from the oar. If the bolt just spins, then it must be cut off with a hack saw. Once all the old pieces and the handle are taken off, remove the hex-bolt and washer from the new handle clamp with a 10 mm wrench. Then place the handle clamp on a paint stick (some people hold it on with a loop of adhesive tape) with the bolt hole facing up and line it up with the bolt hole drilled into the shaft. Carefully hand tighten the bolt with the washer on it until enough threads are engaged so that the handle can be inserted. Line up the handle slot with the center line of the bolt and slowly slide it into your desired total length setting. Tighten bolt with the 10 mm wrench, but not so tight that the carbon compresses around the washer.
