The spring will usually break while under the maximum stress which is when the overhead garage door closes / travels down, or it is already completely closed (USUALLY). If you’re closing it manually and it happens during this operation, don’t try to prevent it from crashing down, let it go … well, unless your foot is where the door will slam!

Garage Door Spring InformATION

There are basically two types of the garage door spring systems utilizing tracks / side rails

(1) torsion spring(s) which are wound-up on a rod above the garage door opening top section (door header)


(2) extension springs that are attached on either side of the door and stretch along the horizontal part of the track when the door is closed

Garage Door Spring Repair

You might also have an old, one piece door that swings outward as it goes up and overhead. This particular design will have springs mounted on the sides of the door opening - at about your waist height, secured to a lever bracket system that extends the springs toward the ceiling at the door closing.It is an old and extremely dangerous system, not manufactured anymore. If you have a such system in the garage, We highly recommend replacement.

A critical issue with extension springs is to have a safety cable installed inside of each single spring and secured properly, so when the door opens and closes, the spring can freely slide on this cable! When the garage door spring snaps without the cable inside, broken ends might severely injure anyone standing within their range. The cables should be always included with the overhead garage doors hardware

When one of the two garage door springs breaks you need to have them both replaced at the same time! It will cost some extra money, but having an old and new spring installed will:
- put much more stress on the new one
- the door will loose proper balance
- the remaining old spring will most likely break soon
