    About an hour ago the spring broke on my opener. It's not an old one so I just need the spring and cables replaced.

    If any of you do this as a business please let me know. I would rather keep the money in house.

    As a side note I am not asking for a killer deal just a fair deal and to help out a fellow gun owner.

    Thank you much, Troy Dean

    Garage door springs store a LOT of energy. Slip with the wrong lever and it'll beat you silly, or worse.

    That's why I have no interest in doing it myself.

    Smart move. I had the torsion spring break on garage door. Now it has double springs and new cables professionally installed.

    I got it fixed. $160 parts and labor with a bigger spring over the stock one.

    Hey Troy !!
    It really sounds good that at least you are trying to search for the repairer to replace the garage door spring :) :)
    but frankly speaking I have seen one of my friend who was met with an accident just by management of spring :( :(
    To avoid such accidents I always use an automatic gates
    I wish no should ever see such an accident :huh::huh::huh:
    Lastly its a request to all my friends here that not to replace the garage door spring on your own !!

    I've used Able Garage Doors a couple times and was very happy with the work.
    Google is your friend.
