    Proper use of Break Free CLP?

    EDIT: BUMP!

    I owe it to BreakFree CLP to update this with new information.

    I apologize if I cast the product in a negative light because of my own ignorance.

    Today I was lubricating my carry gun and for some reason I just tried randomly to poke that little straw into the hole . . . The tube is thicker than the hole is wide, sure, but with a little pressure, the hole turns out to be expandable, and the tube actually goes in and makes a sealed fit and can be used very effectively.

    If you have been frustrated like I was because you thought that the cap with the hole was rigid and could not accommodate the tube, check it again but push that tube with a bit of force into the hole and it will penetrate and work well.




    I remember when Break Free CLP came in bottles that had a different type of cap. They were the kind that could release a single droplet at a time.

    Now, the cap has a sort of divot in the top, and the bottle comes with a plastic tube (pipette?).

    How is it supposed to be used?

    The tube, in every case, is significantly thicker than the hole in the cap.

    You can't stick the tube into the cap (at least, I haven't been able to).

    And the shape of the cap makes it extremely messy to try to dab a droplet at a time.

    What's the proper way to use this bottle as a dispenser?

    honestly, when I use it I just put a few drops on a Qtip because I find it to be difficult to use easily too, without making a mess.

    I transfer mine to a bottle that you can buy in sets of 3 at Brownells. Easier to dispense just a drop at a time where you want it.

    My single best use for CLP has been - and this was used from pressurized container version ........ make a piece of lint-free rag well damp with it and then put in poly bag.

    For me - to be as needed, the rag finishes up ''greasy/oily'' - enough so it comes off on fingers but as a film but no wetter. This has proved invaluable as an external wipe over on guns - blued in particular.

    I just drip it where I want it. the CLP gets smeared around on the contact points anyway.

    +1 on Rocky's technique.

    I do use the tube as well though. It is a tight fit the first time in, but it'll go. I assume it is tight to prevent leaks.

    Am I the only one that just dumps it on a brush and scrubs the heck out of whatever I'm cleaning?

    Take the cap off;
    insert the tube into the bottle so that is submerged approximately 1";
    place the tip of your finger over the exposed end of the tube;
    remove the tube from the bottle;
    at this point you may either dab the oiled end of the tube, or release your finger for heavy oiling.

    Have you tried the tube over the divot? IIRC one end was flared.

    It's been a long time since I used that style but I know the tube can work (just the details evade me). I normally just dripped on the parts needing oil and work it in with a finger.

    My CLP is in gallon jugs.

    Q-tip, finger tip or, if you want a drop somewhere, use a toothpick....cheap, easy, and has worked for me for years.

    No matter how you despense it , first thing you do is put a small object into the bottle ( assuming non aerosol ) . Break free clp will seperate and needs to be re mixed by shakeing , put a small object such as a warsher or nutt in the bottle to aid in this . Its a fine lube , but like oil and venigar for a salad .. if left alone it will seperate and become less than what you want in its compnent parts .

    The tube goes in the bottle then squeeze as nec and fluid can be gotten out of the tube one drop at a time or more if wanted. Set the bottle upright and the tube drains back into the bottle. I had to work at it at first.
