"Lock Bra" Keeps Padlocks From Freezing Up On ShedIn a recent issue of FARM SHOW Ron Geppert of Mankato, Minn., sent in an idea for a “lock bra” to keep padlocks from freezing up on his shed. It consisted of a rubber “umbrella” that prevents moisture from entering the lock.
My husband came up with an even simpler solution - he just nailed a piece of heavy duty foam rubber onto the door above the lock. Lifting the rubber exposes the lock so he can use the key to get in. When he lets the rubber back down it covers the lock. We’ve used this idea for about 8 years and have never had a problem with the lock freezing up.
