Have a broken cable on your garage door?
There are two cables that connect to the bottom of the door, then to the shaft above the door where the springs are located. As the door opens the cables wrap around the aluminum drums lifting the garage door to the open position.
It is very important to look after the cables on the door, if a cable starts to fray or come apart the overhead door can drop and damage the door or even land on anything under the door. Garage door cables come in many different sizes based on the weight of the overhead door.
Below are some examples of what a damaged cable looks like.
