Replacing Your Garage Door Cable
Cables are an essential part of the garage door assembly. In torsion systems, cables are attached to the brackets at the bottom of each side of the door on one end and to the drums above the door on the other end. When the door is raised, the cables wind onto the drums. In extension spring systems, the cables are part of the pulley system.
In either case, if you have a broken cable, your door will not open properly on one or both sides, causing a frustrating and potentially dangerous situation.
Garage door cables break and fray due to normal wear and tear. They do a lot of heavy lifting, and are subjected to multiple forces as they are wound and unwound from their cable drums or pulleys. When individual wires fail, you may notice your cable starts fraying. This is a clear sign that the cable is on its way to failure as a whole. Frayed cables should be replaced as soon as you notice them before they break entirely, as broken cables can cause accessory damage to other parts of your garage door assembly.
