What Dry Lubricant for Door Strikers, Locks and Hinges.


Anybody have a favourite Dry Lubricant for Door Strikers, Locks, Stay open mecahanism and Hinges.

I've just bought some spray on white lithium grease that dries to a thin film, but it doesn't look like what Nissan use (when they bother).

I've heard of Chain Lube, Teflon etc etc but not sure what to settle with!!

I didn't like the stuff that Nissan used, every spec of dust sticks to it and you end up with a dirty black patch around the hinges.
Very hard to clean off.

Me too. I'm wondering if bike chain lube or silicon spray might be the ticket - providing they dry out to a non sticky film that also won't soil clothes that contact the striker etc.

I used to use zinc oxide grease a long time ago as it doesn't stain, but its too messy.

Re:


Consider Lanolin, or natural sheep/wool lubricants in little pots at the hardware shops, it's better in the heat. That spray stuff makes too much mess and doesn't last. It's fine but you do need to do it more regularly- so a wipe over and re-coat just has to be done, I usually spray it onto a small brush or something.
