This invention appertains to improvements in
car or rowlocks generally, and has for its primary
object to provide an efficient type of swivel
mounting for the same, which is adapted to be
fastened directly on the edge of the gunwale of
blocks in such structure.
Another object of the invention is to provide

opening 26, to permit of the required turning '

fully described, set forth in the appended claim,
and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in

Figure 3 is an elevation taken at right angles
to that of Figure 2;
Figure 4 is a top plan view of the swivel mount

Figure 5 is a top plan view of the rowlock
per se.
Referring to the drawing in detail, the row
lock, as it is exempli?ed therein, is comprised
essentially of an upright ring [0, to be engaged 40

which is provided with a circular head 18 on its

provided in the base, at its center, to receive an
additional fastening 32; access being had to the
latter through the circular opening 26.
In use, with the rowlocks secured in place on
the gunwales at opposite sides of a small boat;
the ring ll] of each rowlock will be engaged on
the loom A, from the handle end (not shown)
of an oar and, thereafter, the leather cuff B is
secured on the loom and engaged through the
ring, with the “preventer” C, at the inner end
of the cuff, abutted against the inner side of the
ring. In order to “lay-in” or "boat” the oars,
bladed ends (not shown) thereof are swung in
wardly of the sides of the boat to place the oars
in fore and aft positions, when inward pulls on the
loom-s will withdraw the headed shanks from the
slotways in, the base 20, allowing the cars to be
layed in positions of readiness as is customary.
As shown by the broken line ID’, on Figures 1, 3
and 5, the ring I0 is made substantially oval in
cross-section so that usual rowing motions of
