Need to Fix Garage Door

Postby Add » Tue Jun 05, 2007 9:50 pm


I have a single canopy garage that is in need of some tlc. It has a large spring going along the top of the garage door frame held in place with three brackects. On the end of each spring are two drums that coil wire cables and should hold the door in place when I open and close it.

After an incident with a bin one of the brackets holding the spring in place came away.

I had to remove the door to put the bracket back on. When I put the door back on and went to attach the wire cables I can not get the drums to wind the cables up and hold the door in place.

I have tried to twist the spring and wind the cable up but its still not biting.

Can anyone help ???????????

Not a DIY job, tools required for tensioning.
