Garage Door Lubricant

We recommend garage door lubricant spray with every order. You should spray it on the torsion springs, bearing plates, and on the rollers. This will help ensure the life of your garage door.

Note: This is synthetic spray made specifically for garage doors. Do not use WD-40 on your garage. 

One of the commonly used places in the house is the garage. It is where most of us keep our precious mode of transportation safe and away from the harmful elements. It is where we would go in case we need something to fix inside the house, as our tools are mostly kept hidden there also. Now, when we talk about our own personal garage, we don’t usually give a focus on our garage doors, but it is one of the largest things around or inside your home and is probably the most neglected. That is why it makes a very loud noise that could wake up every person in your house every time you get home late, and those rusting squeaky parts could also be a danger to you and to those who uses the garage. And when worst comes to worse, you’d be in a very messy predicament because your garage door has broken down to something unfixable. Here comes the realization that our garage door also needs to be maintained. Good maintenance can prolong the life of your garage door and could also save you from a lot of noise.

One of the most important parts of our garage door is its hinges. It needs to be running smoothly or else it would make a lot of noise and sometimes it would be very hard for the door to be opened because its hinges are stuck. This is why it needs to be properly lubricated for it to do its work effectively. The hinges are composed of plates that are made of metal; these plates are fastened to the panels of the garage door. With a moving joint, they are joined together. You can take a look at the hinge of the garage door the next time you lift the door. Each hinge contains two parts. Sadly, the metals used for these hinges are of standard quality and are quick to rust and to experience corrosion. The spots that you can see are moving when you try to open the door are the danger parts, as this is where they might start to stick, make noise or seize up. Multiply this by a dozen or so hinges and you begin to see why lubricating them on a regular basis is essential to the reliability and function of your garage doors. Aside from its hinges, it is also essential for you to lubricate the torsion springs, bearing plates and the rollers of your door. This will keep them from sticking and making noises.
The area of the hinge that needs oil is where the two sleeves rub against each other. It will take a little patience to work the oil into the affected areas. But if you’d want to do it the easy way, this is where a high quality lubrication spray can come in. If you would try to lubricate it manually, you’d find it hard to reach those little places. High quality lubricant sprays can:

PREVENTS RUST AND CORROSION
Rust is definitely the ‘number one’ enemy when it comes to essential metal parts or hinges. They turn the useable parts into parts that are unusable, or would make you exert a lot of effort on items that are made to ease your job. This is why it is needed to prevent that from happening before corrosion can take its toll. Because if you would not take the time to prevent it, you’d definitely take the time to fix, remove, or at worst situations, replace entirely your garage door. High quality lubricant sprays that are usually composed of silicon can help prevent all of these and will protect your garage door parts so that it can perform effectively at the most efficient way.

PROTECTS FROM DUST AND OTHER ELEMENTS

With dust and other elements, prevention is the best protection. A little spray every now and then will keep the repairman’s bill away. Given their almost invisible nature, you will never know their presence until it is quite too late, and your door’s hinges are stuck. There’s no need to imagine the amount of trouble you might find yourself in when your garage door refuses to open. Picture this: you’re on your way to a very important meeting so you dressed to kill, got into your car and start the ignition… but your garage door is stuck. Let’s leave the rest to your imagination. Remember, a little spray keeps door troubles away.

EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR GARAGE DOOR
Since doors depend so much on its hinges, well lubricated hinges can literally increase the life span of your door. Getting a hinge unstuck can take its toll on the door itself, especially with all the hammering, pulling and everything else in between just to get that door unstuck.

What Lubricant spray cans can do

Prevents your door from making that irritating noise
Squeaking doors are a pain in the neck, or more accurately, the ears. For some people it can set their teeth on edge, to others it ruins the rest of their day, especially if their sleep was interrupted by it.
Waterproof your work boots
Leather and water don’t mix well. So to protect your work boots from water, you can spray it with a little lubricant. Don’t worry, unlike grease, it will not attract dust or dirt.
Paper shredder cleaner
Spray it on the blades of your paper shredder, run it back and forth and presto; all the build up is gone!
Garage door stripping
When it’s freezing, the stripping tends to stick together but a spray or two will prevent it from doing so.
Satellite Dish
To keep the snow off your satellite dish, spray it with some lube. You’ll be surprised at how easy the snow slides off.
Smoother runners
Drawer runners and garage door runners could use some lubricant spray in order for them to run smoothly and quietly.
Car doors
For better working car doors, spraying on the right places will go a long way.

Hard to remove screws and bolts
Spray it directly on the screw and wait a little. Give it a tap or two and it’s loose. You can start unscrewing!


Sliding door rollers
Spray it like you mean it. Sliding doors can be heavy.


Window hinges
It was a wonderful night and the morning is even more beautiful so you decided to open the window and let the morning in, but instead of the gentle morning breeze caressing your face, a bedroom slipper whizzed by your head. The queen of the house was still sleeping and the noisy window hinge startled the living daylights out of her. If only you had a can of lubricant spray…

A word of caution
A spray can in hand could be a lot of fun. It’s like play-work or work-play, whichever is more fun to you. However there are a few things we need to remember; because just like everything else, it has its limitations. Keep in mind that what you have in your hand is a chemical and could become dangerous to you and everyone else around you when abused. It is important to know then when to use spray lubricant and what to use it on. Here is a very important advice you don’t normally get: READ THE LABEL. That way you will be guided accordingly when armed with a can of lubricant spray.


For your convenience, here is the list of when not to use a lubricant spray:
1. On the floor. For obvious health reasons. You’ll slip and hit your head smack on the floor. So if you think of giving your floor a little shine, the lubricant spray is never the answer.


2. On stairs. Don’t ever think of it. Same as number 1.


3. On painted Surfaces. It will peel off the paint.


4. On dining tables. No excuses.


5. Toys. Even if the wheels of your sons remote controlled car is squeaky.


6. On cooking pots and pans. Lubricant spray makes a bad seasoning. Especially if it is toxic. It does not make a good cleaner either.

The instruction that goes with the product is there for a reason. The people who put that there know what they’re talking and what they’re doing. So when the label say, “keep out of children’s reach”, please make sure that you actually do. When it says “store below 30 degrees centigrade” it means exactly that. Not 31 degrees or 30.5 degrees centigrade. When you see a skull and a cross bone, it means the substance is poisonous.


Your safety and of others near you are the most important factor to consider when working. It important to know or at least to have an idea what type of chemical you have in your hand. For instance some chemicals are corrosive, flammable, or both.
Lastly, keep children away when you’re working with chemicals, lubricant spray included. If you as an adult enjoy spraying it around, how much more a child, and who knows where he might end up spraying?

In order to order new springs, you will need to measure (as accurately as possible) your current spring(s) and find the:

1. Wire size

2. Inside diameter (90% of doors have a 2.0" inside diameter)

3. Spring length (how long each spring is)

4. Spring orientation if ordering just one spring (left wound or right wound). Generally, when looking from within the garage, if the spring is on the left side, it is right wound, and vice versa. It works as opposites, so if the spring is on the right side of the center when looking from inside your garage out to your door, it is left wound.

If you would like to convert from 1 spring to 2 springs, use this link after finding your current spring measurements: 

http://www.garagedoornation.com/pages/how-to-convert-from-one-spring-torsion-system-to-two-spring-system

**for maximum accuracy, measure springs  after releasing their tension (taking them off), but this is NOT required. 

RECOMMENDED: This video will help you measure your torsion springs - please watch it before ordering (5 minutes).

 

1. How to Measure for Wire Size

The only way to measure this accurately is to measure 10, 20, 30, and 40 coils and find a match on this chart. It is okay to round if you are very close.

Wire size is the most important measurement. This determines the strength of the spring. It is not recommended to manipulate this to try and get a longer life or stronger spring. If you'd like to upgrade your spring(s), you can add this to your cart:

2. How to Measure for Inside Diameter

It is very likely that, like 90% of Americans, you have a 2.00" inside diameter.

Please double check by measuring just the inside (interior) diameter of the spring. You can measure this while it's still attached.

3. How to Measure for Spring Length

Spring length is the most flexible measurement, but you should do your best to be within 1-2 inches.

The spring length may change slightly after years of use, weather, etc.

4. How to Determine Winding Orientation (left-wound or right-wound)

A general rule is that if the spring is marked with RED paint, then it is RIGHT wound.

Furthermore, if the spring is on the left side when looking from within the garage, it is RIGHT wound.

If you have a 2-spring system, you should replace both springs and you can skip this step.

    Garage Door Nation,
    Just wanted to drop a line to say "Thanks." Got the parts and my garage door is now working better than ever. Converting from a single spring to a dual spring was the key. A great product at a great price with great service! Thanks Much!!

    Stan Shimkus

    Just wanted to thank Garage Door Nation for making this possibly the easiest DIY home repair. The kit had everything I needed. The videos were very helpful.

    There is some potential risks involved with this project, but if one just follows the step-by-step instructions of the videos, they will have no problems.
