Springs, Hinges, and Panels – Oh My

Perhaps you are a self proclaimed do-it-yourself guru? From building shelves, flooring to hanging chandeliers, you do-it-yourself. If you prefer to do some maintenance of your garage yourself, be safe, and also note that garage doors use two different types of spring mechanisms to ease lifting and lowering.

1. Extension springs are located above the upper tracks on both sides.

2. Torsion springs are attached to the header directly above the closed door.

If you have torsion springs, do not try to replace the rollers in the bottom bracket. Broken garage door torsion springs make it nearly impossible to use your garage door. Not to take anything from your  DIY skills,  but it is a job for a professional with the correct tools. Continue practicing safety and give Omega Door and Hardware a call!
