Neither graphite nor anything else is going to help that situation...
Happy climbing

i use a drop of WD-40 on carabiner gates; i first take the carabiner off the sling/dogbone; drop on; and then wipe thoroughly with toilet paper to clean any excess. that way nothing ends up on the sling.

but here's the gold standard:
http://blog.weighmyrack.com/when-how-an ... arabiners/

and some more useful info; none of which i can verify so use at own risk!

"According to this caving booklet: http://www.draftlight.net/lifeonaline/ dyneema is not damaged by lubricants such as WD40 (see page 18 of the download). Some people actually recommend spraying WD40 on slings to stop them freezing in winter!"

"I also conducted a series of tests on Nylon runners with WD40. This was undocumented since it was my own gear. Again, these were still full strength. I don't remember the data off hand since I did this 4 years ago. I don't think that WD40 affects Spectra (our runners are half Spectra and half Nylon). However, I have not tested this out and verified it conclusively. Chris Harmston (chrish@bdel.com)."

I have not read any of the above. Hear that I "bent the gates". Lol. More like i used the draws. Solved with a set of pliers and some Q20. though just Q20 did not fix the problem.

And just btw, I joined the western cape sect, as I'll be moving to the Cape pritty soon :pirat:

enjoy your peace
