Fork lock feels "gummy"?

Hey guys,

I've been wrestling with security on my bike for a bit and trying to determine what the best strategy would be. Any suggestions there would be welcome.

That said, though - the security mechanism I'm most accustomed to is the fork lock. On my bike, however, it feels a bit "gummy" - I'm not able to slot the key in there. I only have one key at the moment (making more shortly) and didn't want to break it off in there, so I left it alone. I did want to ask, though - does anyone have any issues slotting their key into the fork lock? I know on many bikes you need to do a bit of a wiggle to get the lock to turn, but this is the first time I've seen an issue getting it in there.

Is this normal or is my solution (hopefully) WD-40 and hope?
