A little WD 40 in the switch will work wonders. Just a little squirt where the key goes. LMK

Go to Home Depot and pick up some graphite in the lock section. It will lubricate your lock with no side effects.

+1 Graphite lubricant is much better than WD40.

WD40 was not meant to be used as a lubricant, so don't use it as one!! graphite lube only, or you will get more "crud" built up in that little cylinder and it will be even worse.
