This is something I get asked quite often.
“How do I mount an oar to the wall?”
There a countless customised solutions that I could come up with depending on the situation, but for a simple and quick result there are many standard products that you can use and find easily online or in a homewares store.
The most common are the mounts for curtain poles, available in a range of materials and sizes.
Another option – also from the curtain section – is a curtain holdback hook. These are mounted horizontally for curtains, but turning them 90 degrees provides a handy hook for an oar. Also available in a range of sizes and materials.
