What's the Purpose of Garage Door Cables?

Garage Door Cable repair

Garage door cables are attached to the cable drums on both sides of the door. With help from the torsion and extension springs, the cables allow the garage door to move up and down smoothly. when a cable breaks it will add strain to the other cable causing it to fail as well. 

The cables are attached to both sides of the door at the bottom garage door panel and run up and attach to each end of the torsion spring shaft. The cables wrap or unwrap depending which way the torsion shaft spins allowing the door to open or close.

As mentioned when a cable snaps it causes the garage door to become uneven. This causes more stain on other garage door components, including rollers and tracks. This is why its important to check your cables and be sure there is no fraying in the cable and when a cable breaks it needs to be replaced immediately to prevent other garage door components from being damaged and also keeping your family safe.

If you notice the tension getting loose or the cables falling around the door, then there could be wrong with the cables. Check if they’re still wound around the drums. If not, then don’t use your garage door. It’s time to call A1 technicians for emergency garage door repair services.
