Freezing Grease


Recommended Posts


I have a variety of extending poles with sheet in between (in the garden), that i use as light shields. I have greased the poles with normal castrol grease - the kind you find in Halfords.

Last night at -4C I went to extend the poles but they were stuck as the grease had frozen. Anyone know of a better type of gease for lower temps. I do need a small tub, but don't want to pay the earth for specialist grease.

And  point the male section of the joint(s) upwards to stop the water running down and seeping in
