Why Do my Topper Locks Freeze or Sieze up.
What kind of oil is best recommended for topper locks? 3in1 oil. We highly recommend a 3-in-1 type oil such as the 3-in-1 branded oil, Marvel, or Tri-Flow oil. Those types of oil will keep the lock free flowing and lubricated so you can lock and unlock your cover on a reuglar basis.
Isn't WD-40 a good 3-in-1 oil to use? NO, NO, NO. Please dont put WD-40 in your locks. Especially outside locks. I tried that in my shed last year just to prove that it would not sieze it up. However I had to take the door to the hinges off to get my snowblower out of there in the middle of the winter. I asked several people in the hardware industry about WD-40. Its a good oil to help free things up occasionally but they told me that it was a FISH OIL. Hence the name which means its a water based type oil and can freeze your locks in the winter time.
