Frozen ignition lock

This morning it took me more than 30 minutes to start the engine. Obvious reason were temperatures well below 0C for a week.

I am wondering how you prevent your ignition lock from being deep frozen to one piece of little use.

regards
Jan

Dry it out fully then a drop of Corrosion Block spray on it will work wonders.
