There will be times when your door may fail to operate. It happens from time-to-time no matter how well it is installed and maintained so there is no need to panic. More often that not the battery in your garage remote is dead or it is some other simple garage door repair. It is also a good idea to keep additional power back ups with you such as a manual device (generator UPS etc) or additional batteries. Or you can manually open the garage door until you figure out what the is causing the problem.
This story was published in the "Far North Dallas Advocate" magazine in the March 2011 issue. It had a happy ending but how easily it could have turned tragic. What if the wife had not awakened during the night? What if the husband did not have a rifle? What if the robber struggled with the husband and took his rifle away? A simple robbery could have easily turned into a homicide. Now ask yourself this: "What if that had been your home and your family that were threatened?"
In the past the biggest concern with operating an overhead garage door was the potential risks associated with the springs used for balancing the door weight. Pre mid 1960s garage door installations typically relied upon a pair of stretched (tensioned) springs to assist the operation of the garage door pivoting hinges. These springs became loaded (tensioned) as the door was moved into the closed position. Unloading (releasing) of the stored spring energy occurred as the door was opened to the horizontal overhead position. One of the most dangerous aspects of these spring systems was that after a period of time often without any maintenance or inspection the points of attachment of these springs would rust or become weak.
