Default Lockformer Jam

I think this has been covered before, but I can't seem to find it.
Lately our lockformer is grabbing the last few inches of metal and won't let go.
I tried to adjust the alignment but I don't know much about it.
Hoping someone here could advise.
Thanks in advance.

Had that problem a couple of times. I think the fix was to spray to remove built-up galvanizing. Lockformer's website lists a product called GALV OFF. Can't remember what we used.
