Broken Garage Door Cables

In your Garage Door System, cables are connected to both your door and to a drum and help the spring lift your heavy garage door. In a balanced system, this makes your door light enough to lift by hand when disconnected from the opener. When these break, you won’t be able to use your door like you are used to. A broken garage door cable can cause one side to go up, bend hinges, pop out of the track and cause rollers to go flying and all kinds of unpleasant stuff. We carry plenty of cables of the highest quality and can get you back on the road in no time.

Broken Garage Door Cable needing replacement in Utah.

Frayed and dangerous garage door torsion cable.

This frayed cable came off of a customers broken garage door during a tune up and inspection. The thin cable was starting to fray. If one of the two cables that work with the torsion spring break, half of the garage door won’t open and you can destroy the panels of the door, the track, and even parts inside the opener. Not only can it be a costly situation, if someone were walking under the door, it can be potentially life threatening. Not only do we have cables in stock for replacement, our cables are thicker and have a higher weight and cycle rating so that they will last much longer.
