Adjusting Garage Door Springs
Since 1993, most garage doors will have built-in safety features. One especially important safety feature has to do with garage door springs.
However, torsion garage door springs–springs you would find across the middle of your garage door threshold–could still potentially break and lacerate you if it broke as you were adjusting or replacing it. The reasons for their danger were because they were:
B) Constructed without safety cables
C) Constructed without safety brackets
Don’t Try to Adjust Torsion Springs On Your Own
Adjusting a garage door spring can quickly turn dangerous and even life-threatening. Torsion garage door springs are especially dangerous when they’re damaged, and have been known to become like projectiles and break in a person’s face under great tension, causing severe lacerations.
Adjusting A Garage Door’s Balance
Every functioning garage door should have precise balance. And the first time balancing your garage door is the most important one. Done the wrong way, your garage door could stay locked in place the next day. Foothills Garage Doors gets it right the first time, guaranteed. The result: a smooth and quiet opening and closing, the way it should be.
Adjusting Photo Eye And Other Safety Features
