    X2 on what Haybale said .. spray silicone couple times a season ... Just try to avoid getting the spray on the material .. Use to use a flat cardboard behind the lift post when spraying ..

    Yep, dry silicone lube spray. Hold a piece of cardboard between the lift post and tenting to prevent getting the lubricant on the vinyl fabric and use a rag to wipe off excess.

    I apply the silicone to the pulleys on the inside of the lift post making sure I don't get the silicone on the canvas. I then wipe off the overspray and use a stainless steel cleaner to keep the posts clean.
