Garage door springs are a major component in the garage door mechanism. The springs act as counterweights, which allow for easy opening and closing of your garage door. If you notice that your garage doors seem to be taking longer than usual to open or close, then it may be time to replace one or more of the springs.
Replacing garage door springs can be done by someone with reasonable DIY skills and is a lot less expensive than hiring a professional to carry out the job. While the task is relatively straightforward, it is imperative to follow safety procedures as it can be dangerous otherwise. Some people in the past have cut corners and failed to use the right tools for the job and paid the price. When it comes to replacing your garage door springs, we strongly advise that you use a high-quality winding bar.
A garage door winding bar is a tool that helps you wind up the springs on your garage door. This guarantees that the spring tension is consistent and balanced across the whole system, preventing any damage to the springs or cable hardware from occurring.
Our winding bars are designed specifically for use with do-it-yourself garage spring replacement projects. These are the same garage door winding bars as used by professionals. When you order through us, you'll receive a pair of professional round garage door winding bars 7/16" - 1/2" x 18" long.
You'll find other poor-quality brands on the market that are prone to break, and some people will use potentially dangerous tools like screwdrivers or crowbars to serve the purpose of winding bars. Don't let this be you! Our professional-quality winding bars are highly affordable, so there's no reason to take unnecessary risks that could harm you, your family, or your property.
In addition to winding bars, we stock a wide range of garage door repair parts, including torsion springs, rollers, lubricants, hinges, and more. You can take advantage of our free shipping offer if you spend over $100.
