Cold weather Lubricants

Recommended Posts

Ok, get your minds out of the gutter.

Does anyone use (or know of) a lubricant that I could use on the telescoping poles in my portable? The colder the weather the tougher they seem to extend and retract. Thanks in advance.

Deputy Welcome to the forum, this is really weird because I just heard this at the local bait shop this afternooon. 2 things bee's wax or powdered graphite shot up into poles. The older gentleman said stay away from liquid's they will always come back to haunt you. I would have to agree. I would go for the graphite the wax may build up.

I use spray silicon on my house. It works about as well any anything.
The main cause of sticking is bent and crushed poles though! Even a small dent really can cause a lot of grief.

Try "Tef-Lube" It's a teflon spray that's made by Remington.
Graphite works well also. .99 cents or so a tube @ menards!

Be carefull with the dry graphite because it can make a mess of your equipment. Very tough to get out of canvas and your clothes not to mention your hands when putting up or taking down. There are some comparable products out there that made of teflon and are clear, colorless, and odorless. You might have to do some looking but they are there.

Deputy Grizz's recommendation is a good one. The Remington teflon spray is the way to go, but spray it on a clean, dry pole. The graphite does work but as mentioned earlier--it's messy and dirty.

Parafin Wax, available at most grocery stores. Goes on dry, stays dry, won't attract dust and dirt. Used to use it on toolbox slides before ball bearings were around in toolboxes. I think it works great.

Try spraying a rag with WD 40 or even the Remington teflon spray then wiping the poles with the rag. This will prevent overspray from getting all over the fabric. Just make sure to apply to cleand dry poles.

    • It's been around for at least 30 years.....    
    • Yeah, that is awesome!  I hope the guy chokes down his humble pie and realizes what a gift you and your son are willing to give him!
    • Never heard of the stuff.  English Muffin....Toasting Bread?  I was wondering if you really made French toast with round English muffins? 😵
    • just saw it yesterday in Alex..darn good stuff too!!!
    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around.
