Lubricating poles on portable

Recommended Posts

Does anyone lubricate the poles on their portable so they slide easier? If so what do you use?

I have been wondering the same thing. I am thinking of using some endust on them. Should not build up and can wipe mostly all of it off. If it stays as slick at the top of my dresser it should work out pretty good. Anyone tried that? How did it work? Thanks././Jimbo

I've used silicone spray, works like a champ. Petroleum products can thicken and/or trap dirt, graphite is very messy.

I take a small amount of steel wool and wipe down the poles. Then I wipe the poles down with a dry cloth. Then I spray a little silicone on the cloth reg and lightly wipe the poles down. This has served me well. I do it at the start of the ice season and about mid way through.

I wipe them down with cooking oil... seems to work well so far. I usually do this before my first time out with the house.

I use Hoppe's #9 dry lubricant (used on guns) works great doesnt attract dirt and also works great on my snaps for boat cover ,,Remington also makes a similar product

Try an old candle. Wax stays put and doesnt stain anything or stink up your fingers if you touch it

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
