    Default Ladder lube

    Ever have the problem with the Little Giant slide locks sticking during set up and take down? Aluminum is a bit soft and tends to stick to itself a bit. For years I have used a wax product on my bicycle chain called "White Lightning". The original product just leaves a wax film that doesn't collect dirt. They have other lubes that hang in longer and/or for wet conditions, but they accumulate crud. Put a thin layer on the moving parts and it's like grease, without grease.

    Sounds like white lithium grease. Been using it for years on my LG.

    Don't laugh, but Endust works wonders on those hinges.

    Denny,

    What is this, an infomercial? I hope you are getting paid for the endorsement.

    Trying to be helpful. These are the areas that need the lube then your ladder will work like you soaked it in bacon grease, but no greasy feel.

    I used my Little Giant for 17 years and never lubed it with anything other than an occasional spry of WD-40 ... and it never stuck like that.
