Keeping door latches from freezing

Have you ever found some sort of spray or grease that will keep stuff
from freezing? We got rain yesterday, and a deep freeze right
afterwards. Last night both push button door handles on my F-150 truck
were frozen. The push botton door latch on the house storm door and a
slide bolt on my toolshed door was also frozen.
Anyhow, have any of you ever found anything that will keep stuff like
that from freezing? I was wondering about silicone spray? Maybe
vaseline on the slide bolt, but that wont work on the truck? Any other
Spray antifreeze, don't get on paint, I think.
My one boss used to free the lock mechanism with bic.
I use silicone on the rubber window runners.
WD-40 will evaporate real fast. I dont see that working for any length
What is BIC?
I've used silicone spray on the rubber gaskets around a car door. It
does help to keep the door from freeing to the gasket. I have not found
anything to work on the metal door buttons or latches yet. I plan to
get another can of silicone and try it as soon as I buy one, unless
someone on here has a better solution.
