    Ladders and Handrails question

    I don't remember where, but I read it is good practice to lubricate your handrail and ladder posts in the cement before reinstalling them. Does anyone do this, and if so what do you use? Thanks!

    ditto this. First year was a pain getting them out. After that put marine grease in them and in the fall ladder slides right out!

    Where might one find marine grease? Do I need to find a boat store in my area or can I pick it up at one of the big box stores?

    As I posted this I realized I can always just check Amazon being that they pretty much have everything.
