About the Brand

It’s pretty rare that any company today can say they’ve been around for over a hundred years. 3-IN-ONE started as a lubricant for bicycles in 1884, and they haven’t strayed too far. They’ve certainly expanded to create a wide range of products to cover virtually every lubricant you can imagine, but their mission continues to focus on solving common issues for homeowners everywhere while skipping the hassle in the process.

In 1995, WD-40® Company acquired 3-IN-ONE Brand, and together they’ve seen some amazing additions that improve their products even more. A perfect example of this are the cans’ and bottles’ spouts and spray straws. These lead to easier and more effective applications, and while they may seem like a small feature, they make a huge difference.


About the Product

3-IN-ONE Garage Door Lube is a silicone-based lubricant designed to lubricate your garage door in a quick and efficient way. This was once a really tedious task and intimidating enough that most people skipped it only to pay the price down the line. Grease guns, expensive equipment, and messes were all pitfalls that prevented proper maintenance. Like most things, maintenance is the key to smooth operation and longer life for your garage doors. Thankfully, today we can skip a lot of those hassles and go straight for products like 3-IN-ONE Garage Door Lube that make it a breeze.


Key Features

  • The silicone base allows for effective and mess-free lubrication. Some lubricants can cause a messy case of dust build-up, making it not only ineffective but just plain messy. The silicone base prevents build-up and dries clear for mess-free use. With as much sawdust as I fling in my shop daily, this is a key point for me.
  • 3-IN-ONE Garage Door Lube can be used in both a spray and a stream pattern, allowing you to focus in on the areas you need lubricated and nothing else. This prevents wasted product and allows you to cover both precise and broad applications.
  • 3-IN-ONE Garage Door Lube offers additional protection against rust and corrosion, something I place as a high priority in my humid Texas weather.
  • This product can be used on both commercial and residential doors, giving it an incredible amount of versatility.

Truth be told, the key to maintenance is to keep it simple and routine. I try and lubricate our garage doors seasonally. While you can do it more often, I have found every few months to be a good balance and keeps the routine easy to stick too.

First, I wipe the surface down where I will be applying the lubricant. Most users won’t find this necessary, but with the excessive sawdust in my shop, it’s a step I like to take.

I apply a light coating to any areas where metal contacts metal. Every garage door will vary, but hinges, springs, bearings and tracks, and pulleys are all areas I try and pay attention too.

Honestly, that’s pretty much it. It really doesn’t get simpler than that! 


My Thoughts

Of all the things I like to spend money on, the day to day things we use, like my Garage Door or my AC, well I would much rather spend the money on a new tool or better yet, save for a rainy day. Plus, really there are very few things more annoying than a garage door squeaking and groaning every time it opens and closes, which for me happens to be about a dozen times a day. The small investment into products like 3-IN-ONE Garage Door Lube is a no brainer.

All in all, I have been really impressed with how easy and quick the entire process is. Sometimes it’s the little things that we can add to our home routine that save us money and some annoyance in the process.
