Won't know for a while. Might be able to find my can of spray, that's
burried behind clutter. Might buy a newer spray can, some day. Won't know
for a while. I'd have to find a lock to spray, and then check it in a few
days or weeks.
I could imagine using the stuff on hinge pins (not anything people touch,
and could tolerate some sluggish lube). Locks, well, still unconvinced.

You know that a lube for chains must be able to get into the tight spots
in the rollers. It doesn't take more than a tiny amount of the
stuff sprayed on the key and run in and out of the lock multiple times
to get enough into the lock itself. I wipe the key off and run it in and
out several times again. If the lock is real sticky, I may spray
a "tiny" amount into the lock. On hollow aluminum doors, there is
usually a spring loaded pin for the top pivot and I'll remove the door
so I can properly lube the top and bottom pivots and vertical locking
rods if the door has any. You can always pick up a can for around $5.00
at most auto parts stores or industrial supply houses. Try it yourself
and let me know how it works for you.
