    Underwater lubricant

    I am looking for something that I can put on my return eye that will make it swivel a little easier. It is very hard to move. I was thinking of taking it off and putting some type of lubricant on it but did not know what would be the best type.

    They make silicone based lubes for things like pool pump seals and such. That should be easy to find and do the job.
