156: Boot not opening issue

for the past few moths my boot has been mis-behaving. when i pull the 'open boot' handle 6 outta 10 times it'd open, then after a while maybe 1/10 time...... I hate using the key to open the boot.

I even set the bumps to the min thinking that they were keeping too much presure on the boot.

So before xmas i replaced the lock itself coz i had a spare in the garage.

All seemed better for a week or so & then the saga started all over again

so today i decided to sort it once & for all.

In despetration I GREASED the hasp & the lock mechanism ...... much to my it now works perfect every time i used it today.

I now have the boots bump stop set to 1 full turn in order to stop it form rattling .... opens perfect.

Grease, its great stuff...ain't?
