I've been using a LITTLE BIT of fluid film in the locks for my 2011 F150 for the past few years. Seems to work well, they haven't iced up or frozen since i started this (not even teh tailgate which was very bad at freezing before). Ford could take some of this advice on their newer F150's though smirk2

I have a quart of Slick 50 on my shelf that would be good or this application. Like Tri-Flow, it has teflon particles in an oil base, but isn't as horribly expensive as Tri-Flow.

I've been using Lock-Ease all this time with no issues. I'll start using WD-40 dry lube instead.

Which reminds me, I need to relube and work a key into all my locks.

GM is a fan of their grease for lubing ignition cylinders I will add.

About 25 years ago I took a door lock to a locksmith because it was so corroded the key wouldn't turn in it. The locksmith disassembled it, cleaned it up, then packed it with grease and it's been trouble free ever since. He said the heavy grease will keep out the water.

The absolute best Lock lube I’ve ever used by far is called Houdini. Your local locksmith will have it or you can get it online.
And a really slick side use is it makes really good cutting fluid for aluminum.

Hello all. I am not good at manufacturing or creating something but I use good tools and have some brewery, my last bought was WD-40 (https://trusthandy.com/best-lubricants/for-sliding-glass-door/) for my Volkswagen CC. And I've even spent not all of my money on this little business which brings me earnings every month (I use the car for business trips).

I can't understand what you're trying to say, are you selling something here?
