Joel the locksmith joins us to talk about how to fix a frozen lock, buying or renting the correct tool for the job, how to fix an iphone, and spy photos of prototype cars in Detroit.
Joel asks Eric how to fix an iphone, and Eric talks about how he fixed his iphone using Ifixit.com, and drops the hint again that Ifixit.com needs to be a sponsor of GF Radio. One needs a few special tools to open up an iphone, but they are affordable and available online.
Fixing an iphone with large fingers takes up more time than one would think in this show, and Mike offers his take on the iphone button and what might be wrong with it. Joel thanks eric and mike for being ‘helpful’.
We then ask Joel locksmith questions, and he suggest using Tri Flo instead of wd-40 to lubricate lock cylinders. The problem with using WD-40 in a lock is that as the lubricant dries out, it gums up the cylinder again . Joel also advises not to use graphite on locks, it make more problems and solutions.
Joel tells us the most common ways someone will break into a home, and how to keep your home from being broken into.
We then finally get to how to defrost or unfreeze a frozen car lock. Listen and tell us your frozen lock stories below:
