BROKEN GARAGE DOOR CABLES & BRACKETS
Cables which connect the springs to the bottom of the door on each side can become frayed and worn. You should have a professional come inspect the cables if they look as though they need replaced. If these snap, they can cause injury.
The cables are connected to brackets on either side of the garage door. These brackets, much like the cables and springs, are under an immense amount of tension. Visually inspect each on to confirm it is firmly attached to the door. If it is not, contact a professional. Do not attempt to loosen or adjust these brackets on your own. Newer doors are equipped with tamper proof brackets which prevent non-professionals from adjusting them.
