    Is there such a thing as a "grease gun" to inject silicone grease into
    the controls on my waterproof camera case? The lubricating slots are
    narrow and trying to lubricate those springs by squeezing on the
    silicone grease tube is like pushing on a string.

    Thank you.

    put a blob of silicone grease on the vents, put a shaped charge over
    the silicone, set it off and your good to go.

  4. And, warm the silicone grease in an oven before attempting the injection.
    It ought to 'flow' a lot easier.
