What did you lube it with, Ryan?
I assume you mean the ladder?
I use silicone per the manufacturer’s recommendation.
Yes, thank you, Ryan.
I found this lubricant by accident from a conversation with a overhead garage door installer. I have used it on squeaky hinges that seem to be back squeaking again and you may like it, too.
I have used it on my articulating ladder but not a telescoping ladder as they went with the sale of my business and it lasts a long time.
That’s interesting. According to the website it is not petroleum based and according to the can it does not have silicone. Extend and Climb strongly cautions against using petroleum based products. Wonder what’s in this stuff??
I don’t know but it works really, really well!
This is what I have been using. I spread out the ladder horizontally, wipe on the silicone, wait for about 2 beers, and then stand it up and cycle it a few times. The biggest concern with these ladders is not letting lubricant get into the latch/catch mechanism.
Is that your bedroom wall in the background, Larry?
Is that in the instructions on the can?
Yes it is I think. Full disclosure, the writing is pretty small on the can.
I’m telling you, you will not go back to anything else once you use this.
Is it non-flammable? Gotta be careful in certain circumstances. Friction.
It says DANGER: FLAMMABLE on the front of the can but I quit smoking way back. So, you’re on your own with that part of it.
P.S. Oh, Friction…LOL!
Oh, I get it now…I think. Nope, no problem there. LOL!
Took nearly 4 years of blood, sweat, countless hours of hard training, recouping lost time from a hyper extended knee, a bum hip, and a torn hamstring to achieve, but today I finally achieved the rank of Dan (Black Belt) in Tang Soo Do Soo Bahk Do.
congrats, way to go!!
Don’t mess with Mikey! Congrats, well deserved.
