    Key prolems due to dry cylinders are common in my area. My solution is that when you turn your clocks back or forward (Spring & Fall) ; change your smoke alarm batteries and lubricate all your locks.

    Suggest you sell and recommend a small puffer bottle of graphite and advise to be SPARING with it for cylinder locks.

    GT85 will serve lever locks, also the bolts of cylinder locks.
