Do the best Houston Locksmiths use graphite to lubricate locks?? NO!!! We never use graphite in locks. Here's why. The graphite builds up and actually acts to block or hinder the operation of a lock and can be quite abrasive as well. The best locksmiths in Houston use Tri Flo or Houdini Lock Lube. Look at these photo's of a Mul T Lock high security lock which was filled up with graphite and ceased to operate.(Even the best locks will fail with this stuff in them) This Houston Locksmith actually disassembled the lock cylinder completely and cleaned it thoroughly. We certainly do not want it to fail again due to poor service.
This type of contamination will quickly render even a high quality lock inoperable so always use a teflon or silicon based lube. Never use graphite in a lock. If you ever need a professional Houston Locksmith feel free to call Master Locksmith Company at 713 878 2189
