Locks on cabinets often become stuck when dirt, debris, rust and other items lock them up. A chemical like WD-40 removes the blockage and loosens the lock, making it possible to turn. Locks on cabinets generally use a key. The key itself may have debris on it, which the WD-40 also helps remove. Prevent your cabinet locks from sticking by cleaning them once a month and keeping them dry. Water inside of locks creates rust, which can prevent the lock from working properly
