There are two springs on the 18' door and 1 single spring on the 9' door. Ok say the adjusting the spring will work on the big door, there is only one spring on the 9' door so how do I adjust it?
That's exactly what happened to me, the bars I was using to adjust the spring mandrel was not the proper size. Even though I had loosened the set screws, the mandrel was not turning but then, all the sudden it popped loose, throwing the bar I was using out at a great velocity, hitting my hand and breaking the bone between my little finger and my wrist.I no longer try to adjust the springs on my door! Scared me too bad the first time!
I was used a very large screwdriverand thought I had it held fimrly, only to let it get away and fling the screwdriver to stick in the sheetrock at the front of the garage!! Had there been anything or any person in the line of fire, they would have been seriously damaged!
I've found that one of the most likely times to get hurt is when you feel you know exactly what you are doing!
With sensing a very large lack of experience, I DO NOT recommend this project as a money saver. It can kill somebody!
When the door is 3 or 4 inches from the floor, is the gap the same at both ends or is it still hanging a little crooked?Thank you, I got it fixed.... mostly. it still barley catches on one side.
