*CAUTION* *DIY DANGER*
This year, at least 10,000 people in the US will experience a garage door related injury. Torsion springs can be deadly, and garage doors weigh at least 100 lbs and up to a few hundreds pounds. Broken glass from garage doors smashing down can cause damage to humans, pets, and property in addition to the potential injury from crushing. Snapped cables may also cause serious and even deadly injuries.
DIY Garage Door Repair can also make matters worse. Garage doors have a multitude of manufacturers and one size does not fit all. Installation of improper parts can cause more damage to the door, and worse.
