I’m sure everyone reading knows how useful WD-40 can be.  (Just don’t spray it in locks.  Your locksmith will hate you forever.)  Now WD-40’s available in a “no-mess” pen as well, giving you a) an easier way to carry it around, b) a method to dispense smaller amounts cleanly, and c) a seriously cool addition to your lubricant collection.

There’s not a lot to say except that it’s WD-40 in a pen.  I didn’t know it was out yet, so I thought some of you might as well.  I picked one up yesterday for use around the house and shop while I was out grabbing some 3-in-1 (which Sean’s post the other day convinced me might be better than the “sewing machine oil” I was using prior).

Street pricing for the .26 fluid-oz pen starts around $5.

    Can someone explain why it is bad in locks? Is that for both the old and new (less flammable) formula? Does it gum the locks up? Graphite is alright to use though right?

    It will gum them up, although a locksmith friend says that if the task at hand is to get the lock functioning at all, quickly, then WD-40 will work.

    Graphite is good, but the problem is when there is oil in the lock already the graphite will just become a gluey mess.
