How long does an EmPower Oarlock take to install? What tools do I need?

The oarlock is installed in exactly the same way you would replace the oarlock on your boat, or remove it to change pitch bushings, and you'll need the same tools your boat would require for that task (such as 7/16", 10mm and/or 13mm wrench and/or screwdriver for backstay adjustment). It can typically be installed in 5-10 minutes, particularly with familiarity. A 2.5mm Allen wrench for securing the magnet bar is included with the oarlock. It is helpful to use a long straight edge, such as a 6ft level, for aligning the magnet bar and zeroing the oarlock angle.
