Garage Door Safety – A simple Visual Inspection

A simple visual inspection of your garage door system can save you time, money and possible heartache.

At least once a year, you should take a few minutes to make sure that one of they largest pieces of equipment most people own is in proper working order. June is garage door safety month – so take a moment.

  • Look at the garage door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys and other door hardware for signs of wear. Call a garage door professional today, if you suspect any problems.
  • A safety cable should be installed on all extension springs (the springs mounted above the track) to help contain a spring if it breaks. Call a garage door professional today, if the cables are fraying or broken.
  • Never remove, adjust or loosen the screws on the bottom brackets of the door. These brackets are connected to the spring system by the lift cable and are under extreme tension. It’s OK to tighten them if they’re a little loose.
  • Garage door springs and cables are under very high tension. If handled improperly, they can cause serious injury and death. Only a certified technician should adjust them. Do not attempt to repair or adjust springs yourself.
