Rated 5 out of 5 by from Broke the Rust Down Quick! I have tried this on a few projects around the house. I first used it on the kid's bike left outside, and this new WD-40 loosed up the rusted chain in no time. Seeing the smile on my kids face made him think it was a new bike again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is awesome Got a sample a couple weeks and having been using it, being in the maintenance field it it important to find products that work as advertised. This product works great, too bad we didn't get more as a sample.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works! It's nice when a product delivers what is expected and this one does it well. I tried it on a couple of rusted bolts that wouldn't otherwise move and presto, out they came.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible results after years of being seized. Used this under recommendation by wholesaler here in New Zealand. Unfroze an old mechanism and interlock on a sensitive but obsolete piece of electrical equipment under restoration. Just incredible to see a 1935 vintage piece of generator history run free and work like it used to . Incredible work WD40 . Impressed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sr. Design Engineer I have used WD40 for years. Have cans all over my house and shop. It is my go-to lubricant, penetrant, and protectant. It may not be the best at everything, but it does a good job on all thus a good "one does it all" product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best to use to remove rusted bolts and nuts I bought this new WD-40 product. It works great. Had rusted brake bleeders. I thought I would end up buying new calipers. But with WD-40 Specialist the bleeders came out saving me money. I thank You WD-40.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good by tape and rubber bands This has been a long time coming, the attached extension. The tape that wont stick, the rubber bands that break, the "well, I will put it here." Then of course, you forget where you put it. I came up with my own method to attach the extension. I used a short piece of heat sensitive shrink tubing, and it worked like a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST RUST PENETRANT, HANDS DOWN! UNBELIEVABLE! I've been using Rust Release for a month or two, and its by far the best yet. I live in Ohio and work on a lot of rusty cars. And in 20 years of fixing cars, I have never had so many rusted stuck bolts, nuts, and what have come loose after using the Rust Release. I have been surprised 5 or 6 times the things this stuff gets loose!!! The regular WD-40 was very good, but this stuff blows everything else away. This is all you need!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bettter than PB Blaster I've been using PB Blaster rust penetrant for a long time, but no more, wd-40 rust penetrant works faster and leaves less oily residue, plus it's got the smart straw built in. Because it dries faster than PB Blaster, it doesn't work as well for soaking, but wd-40 has another product for that

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another fine WD-40 Product This stuff works. We use it at the shop on stubborn fasteners that have rusted together. Saves time and money.
