Sweep Sleeves & Buttons


The easily distinguishable Croker pink sleeve was first introduced in 1992 when Kaye Croker, wife of Howard the founder, decided she could make somber surfboat rowers use bright pink.


What started as a playful threat would become the visible hallmark of Croker genuineness and quality.

Our Croker pink sleeves, teamed with our yellow buttons, make a Croker Oar impossible to miss. 

All Croker rowing oars are fitted with a copolymer interlocking injection moulded sleeve and button system.

There are two different types of sleeves to choose from - the new Mark 4 and existing Mark 3 sleeve.


the Quick Adjustment Sweep Button & Mark 4 Sleeve

Firmer lockup while maintaining smoothness of the Croker Sleeve.

No tools needed for adjustment!

Available for Arrow Sweep & Standard Sweep Shafts

Requires new MARK 4 Rowing Sleeve.

(Sculling coming soon!)


Mark 4 (MK4)


Specially designed for the new adjustment button, held together with plastic interlocking clips. It is more stable with a larger surface area making the square and feather position more positive. 


Arrow Sweep Shaft

M47, M49

USD $25.00 each

Standard Sweep Shaft

M4, M2

USD $25.00 each

Mark 3 Asymmetric (MK3)


The MK3 is a major upgrade to the MK1 symmetrical sleeve and is held together with plastic interlocking clips. This double ended sleeve performs better because it only has two flat surfaces.

The asymmetric design reduces the distance between the shaft and the swivel face. It is more stable square or feathered and positive in its movement, squaring and feathering. This asymmetric design is not recommended for use with the Magik or Martinoli swivels as these swivels produce excessive wear on the sleeves.
