Sticky Door Latch Lube Blues
« on: March 14, 2017, 08:06:23 AM »
So when it gets cold down here - a least two weeks of the year - my front doors (2003 MV) don't like to shut.  The latch "locks up" and one must repeat door closing cycle 5-20 times to catch.

I initially went with lithium grease but think it's too thick.  Now using C-656 (kinda of a marine grade WD40) but think it's too thin.

What do you guys in northern climes use on this latch?

I've tried a motorcycle chain lube and it worked fine.

I like the MC chain lube idea - and have some on hand 👍
