14.0 WD40 - DO-IT-YOURSELF - DIY TIPS

While there may be newer products on the market WD-40 is the tried and true lubricant and penetrating oil for metal and moving metal parts. For example, when I used a newer product on a frozen lock, it refused to budge. After spraying this same lock with WD-40 the lock freed up in about a minute and has worked perfectly since.

If a lock on your car, in your house, on your bicycle becomes sluggish when you insert your key or turn the knob, stop immediately and do not force. Forcing it may only break the lock which you will then have to replace. Instead get your can of WD-40 and spray it into the lock with the small straw that is supplied. Saturate the lock and wipe any excess with a paper towel. Try not to breath any fumes. Then slowly and gently work the lock with your key or turn the knob. Once it is moving freely, work it for several minutes with your key. In the case of a door latch, open and close the door for several minutes. By working it, you are making sure that the lubricant is getting spread to all the parts.

You should really spray all the locks on your car and in your house about once a year to prevent them from freezing up and help them last longer.
