    Glue my door locks!!!

    I have not long moved in to my new flat only to find every day i'm getting my front lock glued so i cant lock/unlock my door from the outside. Lucky enough i'm on housing and they replace my locks free of charge but its the inconvenience and worry of this happening all the time. I have now set up a web cam attached to my laptop through the door spy hole which has motion detector software to capture those sticky moments. However i'm curious as to what i could use to stop the glue from drying as i sleep. Any ideas on what i could use? even if its to remove dry glue

    Spray WD40 into the lock, it's meant to stop the glue from setting. Was told that by a locksmith.

    i'd try gt85

    it's an oil spray, coats everythign in PTFE.... i doubt much would be able to stick to anything after a healthy dose of that.

    of course the problem is if the glue dries inside the lock it's going to be a pain in the arse anyway. give it a try but the best bet is to catch the guys doing it like you said you are trying to do.

    some people are just born a absolute pain in the neck aren't they.
