The door is attached to the garage. It is used to lock the things in the garage, without the door the garage will be incomplete.

The garage door can be operated both by manual way and electrical way. In electrical way it is operated automatically. Some sensors will be found on the door to operate. The regular usage of the door leads to loosen the torsion spring. But it damages after the usages of 10000 to 15000 lifts of the door. In case the spring got loosens we need to follow the following steps to adjust the spring.

• Close the garage door first. We can’t adjust it by opening the door.
• Next we need to find where the spring is got attached to the door.
• The attachment screws around the spring need to be loosened.
• Then we need to adjust the spring and stretch it to some extent.
• After the extent of the spring, tighten the screws around it.
• Then we can check the closing and opening of the door, whether it was adjusted properly or not.

The loosening of the springs may occur due to the following reasons too. Cheap quality of the spring. The springs will extent up to 10000 to 15000 lifts or more above. But in low quality spring, it will break at 10000 lifts. So we need to use quality torsion springs. Rust of the spring also damages the door. We need to check the rusting in the spring at regular interval of time. In the door we usually use two torsion springs, but some will use one large spring to save the money. The single spring can’t withstand large pressure so it can damage easily. So we need to check the spring in regular interval of time. Then only we can maintain the door in good quality.
