Clean very well, add a tiny drop of oil or better if available a bit of graphite.
Never, ever, ever put oil on any of your metal climbing gear - all it does is attract dirt and gunk and makes things much worse than they were before the oil.

another option besides oil is aerosol PTFE, works wonders for me. (sometimes called dry-lube)

Note: The material is not embedded with PTFE so it will not last, but it should allow you to break the threads loose.

P.S: Getting dirt out of threads is also possible in a hobby or jewelry grade ultrasonic cleaner. Run it once with the gate closed and again open.
