Sticking lens hood

It is becoming increasingly difficult to turn the lens hood on my ZD 12-60 SWD into and out of the 'locked' position. I've carefully cleaned the hood and the lens where these parts interact - but to no avail. There doesn't appear to be any distortion of the plastic in these areas.

Please can anyone recommend whether there is any kind of lubricant that improve this situation which will not cause any chemical or other damage?

Thanks in anticipation.
