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
