often times we get calls from customers whose keys stick or the home or vehicle owner reports having to "giggled" or fidgit with the key to get it to turn, while worn keys and cylinders do contribute greatly to this problem and re-keying or cutting new keys by code does solve the issue 90% of the time, sometimes it is a matter of debris, lack of lubrication, or the varnishing of improper oils or greases used in the lock that is the culprit, in these cases rinsing thoroughly with WD-40 is often enough to remidy the issue, as a solvent it breaks down old oils and washes away pocket fluff,dust and debris, it mostly evaporates only leaving a silicone teflon lubricant film behind, in cold climates it is a great prebventative maintenance execise to spray it in the cylinders of your car before and after car washes to flush out the water. An interesting fact is that the WD in WD-40 for stands Water Displacement and the 40... well it was the 40th formula that they came up with that finally worked as required. if your interested you can read more about WD-40 right here
if that doesn't help call us!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call.
