installed new one but seems the key is harder to turn than old one.

which area do we oil it and what type of oil works? Singer Oil ok? or silicone lubricant? or Engine Oil?

Put a couple of drops of oil on the key and insert into the lock. Repeat a couple of times.

WD40 is not lubricant btw.

harder to turn can mean your installation not accurate enough.

don't bother with lubricating, it will not help.

fix your shoddy installation

I believe we should oil the inside of the lock through the keyhole. Not sure on the outside.
Don't think engine oil is the best idea.
iinm graphite based is good for locks but check it out in case I was wrong.

I know. Usually its the rust thats causing the problem or dirt that stuck on ur keys n when u push the key inside the dirt left inside.

Wd40 can solve both issue.

Inside part of the keyhole, the cheap ones usually are not made of stainless steels. Rust can build up inside even if the outside is clear.

Perform maintenance from time to time on the cylinder with ABUS Maintenance Spray PS88. Do not use oil!

commented for exactly shown in pic. a new unit in good condition usually does not require lubricating. faulty unit perhaps? or bad installation as pointed out by bro Slimey? or key faulty? or are you using badly duplicated key?

the new lock installed fits the old frame. i had to push it with a bit of force on the last end, it's same length as old one, and the screw fits in properly. when turn it just feels harder than the old model, but nothing unnatural. so how did i installed it wrongly coz 1st time i change such lock.
