Tibee lock lube

Hi all
Does anyone out there know the proper lube to use on the disks & spacers when reassembling a tibbe door lock. Thanks for any & all replys.

For locks you want to use a lubricant designed for locks. They generally contain graphite or Teflon or perhaps silicone. From Home Depot’s Web site:

You do not want to use an oil because it can become gummy and retain dirt. WD-40 should not be used as it is really a solvent and water displacement agent. not a lubricant.

Thanks Mike for your reply. I know the rebuilding kits for those locks contain the “recommended” grease but I didn’t have a clue what that might be. I will follow your suggestion. Thanks again.
