You can prevent more damage to your garage door by catching a loose or snapped cable quickly. We recommend performing a visual check at least once a month.

Once it is clear that you have a snapped cable, it is important to follow these next steps:

  • Do not force garage door up or down.
  • Unplug garage door opener.
  • Call Arlington Heights Garage Doors!

A snapped cable in your garage is an extremely dangerous piece of equipment. Not only is the door in danger of falling, but the loaded tension all garage door cables are under could cause damage and injury.

Garage door cables are metal ropes composed of several strands of small, woven wires. The internal assembly of the cable will determine how much weight the door can handle. The more wires that make up a garage door cable means the more weight it can lift.

Do not put yourself in harm’s way when it comes to garage door repairs. Fixing your garage yourself should not be more important than keeping your limbs attached. Place your trust in Arlington Heights Garage Doors to complete all cable repair in a timely and affordable manner.
