Install a pair of slide locks on your garage doors for added security for your garage and home. These will easily fasten to the left or right edge of the door using the supplied self-tapping screws. Line the lock up with the rectangular pop-out in your track. (INSTALLATION TIP- clamp the lock where needed using a set of vise grips. Then, engage the lock through the track. Drive the screws in to complete the installation.)
Bearing plates are very important to the smooth operation of your garage door. They have a lifespan of approximately 15 years and can cause damage to the door or opener if they seize up. Bearings that are failing will leave a trail of fine black dust down the middle of your garage door, and also leave black residue on the track along the sides. It is a convenient time to replace a set of bearings whenever replacing a broken torsion spring. If your bearings are older than 15 years, or you are in the process of replacing broken springs on your garage door- you should order a set today.
Your heavy garage door is suspended by the cables. They are a very important part of your garage door. Cables will hold up for about 15 years on average.They should be replaced if they are frayed, rusty, or kinked. Cables connect to the bottom fixtures. These fixtures hold half the weight of the door at all times. Both the cables and the fixtures are held under constant tension. Replace the fixtures if rusty or bent.
