"0W-20 because that's what it is anyway . . . a hinge lube."

I have several hinges with many miles on them, always used 0W-20 ......
should I start using a 10w-30 for hinges with over 75K miles?

When the door lock mechanism got a bit sticky on my Maxima (you would insert the key and turn but it would not activate the electric lock), I called my locksmith about what to use. He said he doesn't like graphite for auto locks and highly recommended Tri-Flow Superior Lubricant. I picked up a bottle at his shop (small black bottle with a straw) and squeezed in just a bit into the exterior keyhole. With a few cycles of the key, the lock now performs flawlessly.

Just saw this - have Mobil 0w20 AFE in an old style squirt can - works great on all kinds of things.

I use Blaster Garage Door Lube for interior/exterior/automotive hinges, door knobs, etc. I just started using Clopay garage door lubricant on the garage door with great results.
