Screen door lube ..

Can anyone tell me specifically what type or brand of silicon lube to use on the retracting screen door track on the floor ? I met a fellow Escape owner the other day and he showed me a very small bottle of while silicon lube he put on the track once or twice a year.. We just got our new 19 and didn't get any, so I am thinking it's not part of supplied stuff. Got any ideas where a guy might get some and what brand is being used ?

Hi Bluegrouse

I just use a silicone spray that is available at most any auto supply store. Give the track a good clean and vacuum them a little spray is all you need.

Cheers
Doug

Nigel at ETI when making our door work properly for the first time(fully retract) said to use WD-40, even though the manual says to use silicone spray.

I personally don't care for silicone based lubricants for this type of application, and have used RZ-50 for several years. It goes on wet then dries immediately and leaves no residue. Works very well on drawers and sliding door tracks. PTFE based (Polytetrafluoroethylene - sometimes branded 'Teflon') instead of silicone.
