I owe this trick thanks to my dad, who learned it off his dad. So they taught me the lipstick trick. Welcome back. I’m setting up my Milwaukee pack and what did I forget? I forgot the lipstick. One of the most important tools in my locksmith kit. What do I use the lipstick for? If my deadbolt is sticking in the door. Of course, you can push, pull there are all sorts of different methods, this is the easiest. Open your door. Extend the bolt. Put lipstick on the end. And then close the door. Tap, tap, tap a couple times. And you can see on the strike plate where the lipstick has caught, and that’s what we’re gonna grind down right now. And this makes it really fast and efficient to find out where our problem is. On this one it’s the strike plate, sometimes it’s the wood inside. And I am going grind with my drill. If you look at it you can see where they’ve been closing this door with the bolt open, a common problem. Hear my funny lipstick story in the video.
