Do you lubricate your Compact's stick?

We own 2 Compacts and occasionally rent them as well as use them ourselves. Separating the tower extension sticks is always difficult and a little frightening as you have to rock them slightly to get it done. I never get used to this and first time uses (renters) have expressed concern.

I am looking for a way to make this easier, like a lubricant. Any suggestions?

Thanks ST,
I tried some T9 Teflon lube, applied as the link recommends, but, while it is slightly easier, I would never call it a fix. It is simply too tight a fit.

For me it is an annoying inconvenience but for my wife and newbie renters, it is a legitimate problem.
Hi Lou,

Let me encourage you to give the folks at L1® support a call about this. I don't have any idea what they might have to say about it, but at least they will have more feedback (from you) about the issue.

Better too tight than too loose.

Yep...
Mine are tight too, I've found that I can get them apart easier by removing both sections at once from the base.
Then, hold the meeting of the two sections in both hands across my chest, and pulling apart.
This is much easier than separating them while still in the base.
I use an old fisherman's trick that gets a sticky collapsable rod apart to get my Compact estensions apart.
After removing the speaker section, with your knees together, place the joined extensions behind them. Spreading your knees
against your wrists will then apply even pressure to seperate the sections.

Respect,
Col.Andy
Hi Col. Andy,

Not being a fisherman, I'm having trouble visualizing this.

Could you make a video?
To all:

Here is Col. Andy's trick. Thanks to Col. Andy for sending the picture so I could share that here.

"When you spread your knees against your hands, it provides a straight even pull. You can also see the overspray from the dry lubricant I use to make the separation easier. "

Now that I see it, it makes perfect sense. Thank you.
