by Manish Chadha Auberge Beach Residences Fort Lauderdale

If you have a garage door which is not operating properly, then the little culprit to blame could be your garage door spring. It can be a minor crack or major break which can resist the movement of your garage door. However, to avoid any kind of accident or damage to property, it gets very necessary that you must give some time for the Garage Door Spring Replacement. Here we bring you the list of steps which you need to deal while working on spring replacement of the giant door at your home.

Unplug The Opener: start with removing the opener so that the door stays closed and you can use the clamps to ensure that door does not move, you can add the clamps that would resist door to open when springs are released.

Loose The Screws: for this step, you may need a ladder to reach the screws. You can place the ladder on a side to avoid any accidents. Then you can use a wrench and winding bar to loosen the screws. Make sure you use the right set of tools as using wrong tools could bring you an injury.  

Unwind Spring: hold the winding bars at a 90-degree angle to each other for unwinding the screw. Then you can start with one-fourth of the movement on both the bars to unwind the spring. The same can be followed for the other spring.

Slide Spring To Brackets: Remove the nuts which secure the brackets to avoid movement of springs.  When done with the removal using a wrench, try to bring the springs towards the end of the bracket.

Secure Tube: when done with the above steps, the next step you need to approach is securing the torsion tube with the help of clamp or pliers. Use a wrench to loosen the screws on cable drums. When done disconnect the cables and slide the drums and springs.

Put The New Spring: the next step is to put the new spring at the place of older or broken spring. Make sure you only get a good quality spring with similar dimension to avoid any issues later. Slide the new spring back to position and secure the tube and brackets to get it in position. By following the reverse process as in the removal of spring, you can get the new spring back to get your door in perfect condition.

For the best experience and prevent any chances of injury, it is always a wise move to get an expert Garage Door Repair in North York to help you replace spring in a professional manner with no chances of injuries.
