Garage Door Springs

Just a reminder for everyone to check your overhead garage door tension springs. These are the springs above the door that assist in elevating it. There should be a safety cable that would keep the spring from flying if it was to snap. Some older doors do not have them and some newer ones do not hold. This can do a lot of damage to your cars or people if it lets loose while they are under it. Mine snapped with such force it tore the cable from the stud and the spring landed between the Bullitt and the Boss. One small scratch on the rocker panel that buffed out. Close call for 4713! If they are old, just replace them. They are cheap!

Just had a new garage door installed with a one-piece coil spring above the door. It eliminates the side springs/cables. Also had a new Liftmaster garage door opener installed that uses a rubber serpentine belt so not to damage my cars in case it ever snapped. Am I being overly cautious? :grin:
