      Here is the description.. i use something very similar which you would not be able to buy...


      ""Use to lubricate and protect door hinges, pins, cable, chains, bearings, rollers, and tracks"""

      You can even hit it with PB buster but it wont stay on as long

      I use DOOR EASE on the flap part of the latch. This is a stick lube in a tube. I use motor oil on the hinges, and Mystik red grease on all the internal linkage and pins.
      It sure made a nice closing door after I replaced the broken latch springs and lubricated all the parts.

      Tom, where do you get Mystic red grease. I check Ebay and they do have a sticky red grease, but no Mystic. Do you buy by the gallons ? Thanks, Pat

        Fleet Farm has it in small cans and grease gun cartridges.

          Too bad the hinges aren't LARGE, like Jaguar XKEs, they have GREASE fittings.
          Climb in through the window, like NASCAR drivers do & the hinge pins will last "FOREVER"----

            I bought my tube of DOOR EASE at the auto parts store a few years ago, and I wonder how different it is from bee's wax.
            Toilet rings are bee's wax from what I've read, and they are only a buck or two at Menards. One toilet ring would lubricate hundreds of doors.

              You're always thinking Tom, I know I have a new one out in the shed. Might just as well give that a try, they want $6 for a small tube of the Door Ease.
