Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible! Got this because the store was out of graphite tubes. The explanation on the side of the can implied this did the same thing, which was lubricate sticky keys. All it did was spray a layer of black gunk all over my hands and key, and the key still sticks in the lock, I almost just broke it off in the lock actually. Do not buy!!!! Oh and now the black gunk on the key is rubbing off on my hands and everything inside my purse. Buy graphite in a tube instead. January 13, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by locked out Replaced all my locks with Schlage upper dead bolts and regular knob locks on four doors, 8 locks total from Home Depot. The locks were EZ to install and were working great. Two weeks later I purchased the GS Graphite Dry Lube for the locks, you know, extend the life. I applied the lubricant, worked the key to coat all area's and then went to work. When I got back home all the locks were completely frozen, I couldn't even get the key in. I called B'laster Corporation and was advised to use brake cleaning fluid, some of their product was shipped with too much resin and this will free up the locks. Drove to an auto store and picked up some transmission cleaning fluid, they didn't have brake cleaning fluid. It worked, but that was just too much drama and I wanted others out there to NOT have this happen to them. December 14, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by It's not lubricant, it's liquid glue! As a few other posters have noted, this stuff isn't lubricant, it's resin glue. Froze up my front door locks and washer & dryer buttons. Had to disassemble the locks and soak in break cleaning solvent to free the mechanisms. Took a couple of days soaking in dish soap to free the plastic washer/dryer buttons. THIS PRODUCT IS DEFECTIVE!!! June 2, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Get Overspray on Painted Wood I got this product this to lubricate a bathroom hinge. As it was supposed to be a dry lubricate I was expecting it not to be messy. I used the included straw to direct a short spray on the hinge. It made a mess on the door frame. Annoying but I thought I could just wipe it off...nope. The product damages the paint and stains it. What was supposed to be a simple hinge lubrication will turn into repainting the door trim. I expected to be able to use this product for multiple applications and now I am afraid to use it. I would not recommend buying this product. February 3, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do NOT use on Key Locks / Locksets Although locks are listed on the label uses, use with extreme caution. We lubed 4 lock sets which were only a bit less than smoothly operating to begin with and only one is now operable. All others are blocked / frozen in place. We have followed instructions to break the blockage to no avail. Will probably have to replace all locks. Thank goodness we "worked" one of the locksets extensively after lubing it or we would be locked out. WORST GRAPHITE PRODUCT EVER FOR LOCKS. December 9, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by USE WITH CAUTION -> Messy to Use AND Stains Painted Surfaces Bought Blaster Dry Graphic Lubricant to lube the axels on the wheels of my son's Pinewood Derby Car. We haven't run it yet, but I gave this 3 stars for mess and lack of control over the amount you can spray. This "dry" lubricant is messy to use, even with the optional spray tube that's included. I understand what others have said about needing very little of this stuff or it will seize up into solid rock, but if that's the case, Blaster needs to design an application that gives customers more control over the spray. My husband tried it first and doused the entire axle (a 1" nail) in spray with just one little squirt. I tried to spray it as quickly and delicately as I could and still ended up with at least 1/2 teaspoon of lube on the axle and the car. It permanently stained the red paint on the pinewood car (which we'll get over), but it remains to be seen if the wheels will seize up when raced. I try to update this review later. January 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by did the job needed and will buy again if needed later product was easy to use and did the job but putting in the review is a pain and requires too much wording May 29, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not actually a dry lube Sprays on in liquid form and ruins any painted finish it touches. Very hard to not get running or overspray even with prepped areas. November 1, 2012
