Anybody put anything on their ice shanty door zippers to keep them from freezing up? I've tried Vaseline, and bar soap, but after a long cold couple days where you can't thaw the shack out I find myself having a door that I can't zip up. Any ideas?

Try some silicone spray, and let it dry on there when you can thaw it out. Repeated applications. I wouldn't use anything sticky.

Heat. I keep my shanty warm. Zipper seems not to freeze up. I have never put anything on them as it always seems to come back to haunt me. jmo

Other products known to work good are: Door ease, any good hardware store has it. It's like a giant Chapstick! Also, jeep soft top zipper lube. More expensive but of you may already have one.
