Lubricant in a Tube Can Be a Boater’s Best Friend

Most marine equipment that incorporates zipppers, snaps or hinges will eventually begin to give a boater a hard time simply because of the nature of the environment. Over time, corrosion, dust, grime and salt can make these closure devices stick, often causing the surrounding canvas or plastic to tear or crack. All it takes to smooth out these problems is a dab of Shurhold Industries’ Snap-Stick lubricant.

Unlike gels, liquids or sprays, Snap-Stick can be applied directly to the head of a snap, along a zipper or on the barrel of a hinge without messy dripping or overspray. Its special ingredients are both non-toxic and biodegradable and won’t harm fabric, plastic or metal. A single application from Snap-Stick’s tube, which resembles a glue stick, may last for up to 3 months, making it highly economical, too.

A .45-ounce tube of Snap-Stick lubricant retails for $4.48.
