A simple moulded stopper that is so important to the longevity of your 3 part paddle
Inexpensive but a game changer if the moulded inserts in the existing stopper have perished. Once fitted, the locking system works perfectly again. If in doubt, get one as a spare and keep a good eye on whether the existing one is starting to perish. The other key tip is DON'T leave the handle section of the paddle in the shaft of the middle section when storing it. I made this mistake and it was a tough job to separate the two sections!
