Default Mecaplex canopy window lube

I spray a Q-tip with a bit of silicone spray. Doesn't attract dirt, slicker than snake snot on a flat rock.

Just curious. Exactly how slippery IS snake snot on a flat rock?

I have often used an old candle to rub wax onto sticky sliding/meshing parts (drawers, zippers, etc). Should work here too.

Like some before have said, if it used to slide freely and now it
doesn't, it's most likely dirty.* The first logical step is simply to
clean it.
