I take issue with the poster who said "NEVER use WD-40". is it the best solution? No. Will it work? Yes. Will it ruin your lock? No.

I have seen cases where TOO MUCH GRAPHITE was used and when it dried up it plugged the lock up. How do you clean dried graphite powder from a lock? WD-40
In my 28 years in the trade, I have seen many instances where a DIY'er has sprayed WD40 in the hope of correcting a fault, only to learn afterward the truth of the product.

And I stand by the will eventually ruin your lock. There is more than enough evidence to support the argument.

But it is a matter of choice. Use at your own peril (IMHO)
