Front Door Lock Problem, Locked Out
Locked out? Many people have lock problems today. One common problem is the weather. If the lock dries out you need to lubricate the lock.
Years ago people would just squirt graphite into the keyhole. Then work the graphite into the lock pushing the key in and out of the lock cylinder.
Fast forward years later to today and graphite is one of the worst things to squirt into the keyhole. The pins, springs, wafers and other working parts are very small, putting graphite inside will clog up the lock and cause the lock to no longer turn.
Today locks are lubricated with teflon based sprays. The spray will lube all the parts and last for months in the hot League City Texas summer. A little spray goes a long way so use it sparingly. You can handle back door lock problems are the same way.
