There are two common issues when it comes to keeping your treadmill in tip-top condition:
1. How do you lubricate it?
2. Which lubricant do you use?
The Slic Stik system solves both these issues!
Like most people, I had been using an aerosol based silicon lubricant, and while I never had any issues with this approach, I was always a little unsure whether I was getting good coverage on the running area of the deck (it's hard to see under the belt). In addition, I've never been completely comfortable in using an aerosol. While they are silicon based, there also has to be an accelerant in the spray can, and these are known to cause damage to running belts.
With the "Slic Stik", you get what is basically a sponge on a stick, it's a simple idea, but with it it's *much* easier to not only lift the belt, but to ensure you get full coverage of the running area. In addition, the silicon lubricant provided is a much better lubricant than an aerosol as it contains no petroleum or lubricant and is also somewhat thicker than a spray so it will last a lot longer between applications.
In a nutshell then, an easy 5 star product and a must-buy if you own a treadmill that requires silicon based lubrication.
