The springs on your garage door can pose a safety hazard. A garage door spring that breaks or shatters can send sharp shrapnel flying in any direction of the garage. Anyone inside the garage if that happens is at serious risk of injury or death.
Modern roll up garage door styles or also known as sectional or roll up garage doors pose little risk in the event of a broken spring or shattering spring. These kinds of springs are installed over a shaft that helps roll the door up to the open position. The shaft also acts as a retainer so that a broken spring is not allowed to go ballistic.
On the other hand, the flip up style of garage doors or one-piece garage doors can be a different situation. Old springs are subject to sending ballistic chunks of steel flying around your garage.
These old un-safe springs can be identified quite easily, because newer springs have a core rod that is retained inside the coil of the spring. This is a built-in safety feature, because the core rod will retain any chunks of spring in the event of breakage. Look at new springs in your local hardware store. You can easily see the core retaining rod running the length of the spring.
If your old garage door springs do not include any such rod, it's best to replace them. But replacing springs can cost upwards of $120 or more depending on size of spring. There is a simple way to make old springs as safe as new ones with some 1/8-inch cable but it’s safer just to replace them.
Close the garage door to extend the springs to their maximum position and measure the length. Double it and add at least one foot. For example, a spring, when extended measures 4.5 feet. Doubled is 9 feet and add 1 foot for a total of 10 feet. You will need 1 feet of cable for each spring plus two cable clamps per spring to your shopping list.
Thread the cable up the center of the spring, and back down outside the spring, forming a loop. Then use the cable clamps to clamp the ends together. Simple enough, you've just made a retainer to keep the spring safe should the spring shatter. This work is to be performed with the garage door in the open position.
If your garage door uses two springs on each side, add another foot (12 feet) to the length, and run the cable up the center of one spring, and down the center of the other - there, you just cut the cost of this project in half, and your garage is much safer. This work is to be performed with the garage door in the open position.
Your best bet is to just replace the garage door springs with modern self-retaining ones. You can always call a professional to replace springs and make the adjustments to your garage door and garage door opener it’s a lot safer and doesn’t cost too much and you know the jobs done right. Adjustments to the garage door might also be necessary, since the new springs will have different tension. Your garage door opener might not perform as well without adjustments.
