If it doesn't move, but should, apply WD-40.
BTW, WD is a lubricant, and I'm sticking to
my story no matter what.
Use the LRT and spray into the mechanism.

Yes, "WD-40 Specialist Protective White Lithium Grease" is clearly a lubricant.
But "WD-40 Specialist Industrial-Strength Degreaser", not so much.
Shirley you woodn't suggest the use of "WD-40 Specialist Industrial-Strength Degreaser" to lubricate a stuck window. ;-)

WD-40 is a brand and a specific product. Why someone would argue
otherwise I don't understand. I don't know the name they use for the
product now, but whatever they made, probably first, that comes in an
aerosol can and is a light lubricant is the product referred to when
people say WD-40. That's a more common use than using it as a brand

Sorry, I agree with Micky on this one. If you just say "try
some WD-40", it's clear to me and I think 99% of people that know
of the product, that you're talking about the WD-40 lubricant,
which is by far their most widely known and widely used product.
Do you really think someone means their bike wash product?

WD-40 has BECOME a brand. It was originally a product of Rocket
Chemical Company., which became WD-40 company in 1969. The WD-40
company had only one product - so it was both a product and a brand.
after going public in about 1973 it started aquiring other companies
and brands, including 3 in 1 oil, Lava Soap,and other products, so it
was still a product, and a brand - and now also a distributor of other
brands and products.
They have recently added new product and rebranded other product under
the WD-40 brand - WD-40 Bike, WD-40 Specialist, Blue Works, etc -
which has really "muddied the waters"

The name you gave for the product is the new, long name. The same
product also has a short name, which is WD-40.
It's a product. It's a brand. It's two things with the same name.
It's a breath mint. It's a candy mint. It's two mints in one!
