What the garage door cable does
Garage door cables connect the door to the springs and support the weight of the door as it opens and closes. The cables are typically made of galvanized steel, making them strong and generally resistant to wear. However, over time, they can begin to fray and corrode, eventually causing it to snap.
Signs that your garage door cable needs repair or replacement
When a garage door cable has snapped or is malfunctioning, you might notice:
- The cable itself is dangling or hanging beside the garage door.
- Your garage door is lifting or lowering unevenly.
- You notice the garage door is struggling to open normally.

What to do if your garage door cable is broken
Since the cables are connected to the springs, it can be very dangerous to attempt to fix them on your own. If you notice your cables are frayed or broken, it’s best to avoid using the door opener until you can have one of our garage technicians come for a service call.
When we arrive, our garage technician will:
- Visually inspect the cables, as well as complete a complimentary inspection on your entire garage door system to make sure everything else is in good working order.
- Remove the old cables.
- Determine the cable strength rating your door requires.
- Install the new cables and complete testing to ensure they’re installed properly.
