Regular cleaning is recommended to keep your treadmill in optimal running condition. In addition, after every 40 hours of use, lubrication should be applied between the running belt and deck to help reduce friction. LifeSpanÂ belt lubricant is 100% silicone and contains no odors, solvents, petroleum distillates, or propellants that can be harmful if inhaled and degrade the effectiveness of the lubricant.

- I have the LifeSpan TR4000i and the thing is brilliant in the sense that it detects when the lubricant is low (and will tell me!); this lubricant, when applied, fixes the error and there is a noticeable improvement in the ride quality of the treadmill
- it's lubricant. It's not exactly vintage wine. Get it on your fingers and you'll be able to tell it does the job when you try to wash it off
- I took off one star because it's annoying trying to squirt this stuff if any of it gets on the actual spring-loaded portion of the dispense; in other words, your finger will start slipping all around and things get messy
- I think that I may eventually try pouring this into a spray bottle (think trigger style) to see if that works better; it may also be easier to maneuver underneath the treadmill belt
A note to people complaining about the applicator: When you are lubricating the belt on a treadmill, as it states in probably every owner's manual, you should loosen the tread belt before applying the lubricant. There is usually a screw on either side of the back end of the treadmill that loosens the tension on the belt. Once the screws and belt are loose, lift the belt and spray the running deck with the lubricant. After you have used about a third of the lubricant, reposition the belt and re-tighten the screws back to their original position.
I took a 1 inch dowel i had laying around and drilled a bunch of 1/2 in deep by 1/4 in holes in it, spaced about 3 inches apart. I then used a pipette to fill each of the holes with the solution from the bottle. I was able to slide this under the belt near the top of the platform and then rotate it 180 to deposit the silicone. Worked great. Ran the treadmill briefly to distribute the silicone and its been running just fine without any hint of excess friction.
This is not a gel as another reviewer commented...it is an aqueous solution and does spray quite nicely. I did have some help applying it though...I lifted the belt and my helper sprayed the solution. It couldn't have been easier.
Overall this seems to be a good product. Not sure how long the treatment will last, but I'd rather spend $15 for this than to spend 10x as much for a replacement belt.
