It prevents Garage door spring from breaking. The springs are alternately stressed and fatigued, and the alternating forces weaken the springs over time. An uncabled garage door spring that breaks will recoil with a violent force that, at best, will leave a nasty dent in a car, and at worst, can kill a person. The garage door cable that runs through the spring prevents the spring from recoiling and allows a broken spring to drop harmlessly.
The danger that is prevented by the garage door cable is created by the tension in the spring. Since the cable is broken, it is important to understand this danger. If you do not feel confident in dealing with high-tension springs, call OC Local Fix personnel. It’s not worth the potential injury just to save a few dollars.
Garage door springs and cables are under a great deal of tension and caution must be used to prevent serious damage even death. The proper equipment and techniques must be used and safety precautions followed.
