Default Rust remover ( need help )

My bike lock has too rusted shut because it sat outside for too long in rain for 2-3 times. I have tried oiling it and other items which help to remove rust but it won't open still.
Any suggestions for removing the rust?

Welcome to the family! Are you talking about a part on the bike or a security lock? If you can post a pic that could help us to help you!

Welcome Have you tried PB Blaster??? It's an excellent penetrating oil. Sold at most auto parts stores.

ditto, unless he's talking about the ignition switch/lock, where we can turn the steering wheel all the way and lock it into position......either way.....the PBBLASTER should help.....got to be patient and let her sit.

Also, this may explain why his front brake is making a grinding noise....too much time out in the weather....

One problem with the Allen heads is that water just sits in them and turns to rust. Do you guys think this blaster stuff would work on a 'Q' tip to clean the inside of these screw heads?

Since once they are installed they are not used much, maybe a dab of clear silicone put into the allen 'hole'. It will set up nice and then if ever necessary, can be simply 'picked' out.

Just a thought!

Not a bad idea, at least for the one's that sit upright. But you'd need to get the rust out first.

Try some apple cider or white vinegar on that Q-Tip and let it sit in there for 1/2 to 1 hour then clean it, if not all gone do it again could take longer depends on how rusty they are. ( Do a google search Vinegar Rust) and if it gets on paint wipe it off right away.
