Have you ever had to set a mousetrap? The specific type of spring within the trap that allows it to work is known as a “torsion spring,” which is also commonly found in many other types of household mechanisms, even in your average clothespin. The way that torsion spring works is that the spring is tightly coiled to withstand enormous weights, including the weight of your garage door. However, because these springs must bear so much tension, they can be liable to break with a shattering, explosive snap. This is why garage doors that are even just slightly on the brink of malfunctioning are extremely volatile. They are so dangerous that anyone who is not carefully trained to repair them or does not possess the appropriate equipment is liable to suffer severe consequences.

The moment that you are suspicious your garage door is at risk of malfunctioning; you need to call the ADS Automatic Door Specialists immediately.
