Garage Door Cables

The garage door cable replacement is a important task since the wire is the lifting arm of your system – the driving force behind your door’s opening and closing. These components are the major functionality part for your garage door to run smoothly. Picture the intricate play for the garage door spring winding and unwinding spins the torsion spring shaft, further turning cable drums at the door’s top corners. So, your garage door cables wrap around these drums, guiding down to the base of the door and securely fastened. It’s your cables, then, who step up to lift the door along the tracks.

Sometimes, it is pretty noticeable that your garage door cables come off, or your garage door cable snapped. But, the garage door’s troubles could extend beyond just the cables. An interlaced system of bearings, bottom bracket, pulleys, and drums integral to the cable system may falter too. If you notice your cables not winding correctly around the drum or the pulleys deteriorating, it may be time for a ‘change garage door cable’ mission.
