Garage Door Cables
Your garage door consists of several moving parts that need to be kept in good working order in order for your garage door to work properly. One of the crucial parts to keep an eye on is the garage door cables – these are braided steel cables that help lift the door. They wind on and off a cable drum as the door opens and closes.
Normally, garage door cables will last you for many years but it is very important to make sure that they are kept in good shape and they do not get tangled or kinked, as this can easily cause your garage door to break down and lead to other problems.
One other thing you may want to be aware of: If you have a garage door that utilizes extension springs, it is highly recommended that you install a safety cable which runs through each spring. This will help prevent the spring from breaking and sending pieces of broken spring flying through the air.
