    If it’s just froze, try to rubber band a couple handwarmers too it, then circle back in 30 min. And it should be thawed enough to unlock.

    @Brad despite the snow on the ground its not very cold here past few days definitely not frozen but I have had to use that trick before 😂

    I’ve always used PB Blaster if you’ve never tried that. Used it on guns, locks, everything!

    Use graphite instead of oil based. I think it’s called lock lube. Promise this will solve your problem.

    I use vasaline because it beads off the water and keeps inside lubed up. Hasnt fail me for many years.
