Hope this helps, didn't buy one but seen in Notts and found on the website so it's national and a great time to buy one if you haven't got one in the house already.

Edit: have been informed this product may be similar in nature to WD40 which does appear in this store from time to time. Please check that it's suitable for your needs before purchasing. You should NOT use WD40 on a lock as it may freeze it - you need a light oil (but not as light as WD40!) or silicone lube spray/similar

3-in-ONE and WD40 are made by the same company- don't know how or if the products differ.

That's what I'm trying to figure out too! The OP and I were trying to work it out on my post!

I enjoy a good lubing............

From a look at the products page I'd say that this is safe on locks and is basically a gas-powered version of their standard oil product, as sold in Wilko etc. ~ http://www.3-in-one.co.uk/products/

You can't lubricate something that isn't there. Where is joke?

In a past thread we have had discussions on WD 40.

Other people say it isn't, but I say WD 40 is based on fish oil, which is why fisherman spray their bait with it to catch more fish.

3 in 1 is petroleum based oil. Short of using graphite I have found WD 40 is ideal for lubricating locks . If you use oil like 3 in 1 then it attracts dirt and eventually clogs the lock up.
Not that we have a winter now a days , but if your lock were to freeze then you just heat the key up with a naked flame then insert it into the lock , and the frozen lock should then work.

Ok well this is low hanging fruit that you could have picked yourself.
From Snopes, with zero mentions of the word "lock": http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/household/wd-40.asp
And from WD40 manufacturers themselves, who squeak in the word "lock" once but not in a relevant fashion:http://wd40.com/cool-stuff/myths-legends-fun-facts It's certainly not fish oil either.

WD40 is too thin to use as a long term solution. You should probably use a silicone or graphite based lubricant based on what I've read, but the guys who taught me a bit about sport lockpicking (obviously they are locksmiths) said do not ever use WD40, because it effectively "dries up" after a short while, which could destroy the lock. In the case of loose style locks like a normal mortice it might not be so bad but in a very secure high precision lock the engineering is much closer and you're way more likely to futz up your lock.

As for the coldness of the winter... whut. I'm talking about the lock physically freezing up because of lack of lubrication. Locks need to be lubricated with *something*. Oil does indeed clog up with dirt but most people don't have those specialist lubes so a light oil will do if you haven't anything else as far as I can tell.

Cold for me. I sprayed this on my chips before popping them in the oven and they taste terrible. I'm going back to Flora spray.

Got one at home, very good, hot.

Been using wd40 on my shed padlock for the past 20 years whenever rusts make it stiff.
Still works perfectly.

The last time I was at eurocarparts I overheard an employee tell a customer that their own spray (below £4/600ml) is equally good/same as WD-40 et al........

Its much better then WD40. You can get it for £2-3 depending on what codes are about. Its more of a penetrating oil though for undoing rusty fixings.

Well done you! If you'd used oil in the first place, it wouldn't have rusted up at all, and you'd probably only be oiling it once every five years anyway. :D x
