What is a Garage Door Cable?

A garage door cable is a strong piece of metal or fiber, which is used to open garage doors. When the garage door opener goes off, it pulls on the garage door cables, opening up your garage. Over time, garage door cables can weaken and snap due to changes in temperature and corrosion. These can also break when there is too much pressure against them from a garage.

The majority of garage door cables are made of thin wires that have been wrapped together and galvanized, and they range from 7 to 10 feet in length.

Cables don’t need to be thick to be effective; the most common sizes run 1/8th of an inch. You’ll need different sorts of cables depending on whether your garage door has

Garage Door Cable Repair

If you are experiencing any of these common garage door cable problems, it is time to call a professional.

When the cables snap unexpectedly, they may be frayed or worn out and need replacement. The opener may not be able to open the garage door if one of the trolley cables snaps. If there’s no tension on the trolleys when opening or closing your door, this typically means that one or more of the overhead springs have broken or lost their strength.

You can’t just replace individual parts in most cases because all four cables must work together for your garage door to function properly.

What causes a garage door cable to come off?

There are a couple of reasons garage door cables come off the drums, including slack in the cables that have stretched and cables breaking. Garage door cables may also come off their drums due to garage door panels being bent or warped.

If you suspect your garage door cable has broken, it may have simply snapped in two. The tension on cables used in garage doors is high, and if they are not maintained regularly, they may snap.

How do you reattach a garage door cable?

If you want to reattach a garage door cable, you can do this by using a garage door clamp. The garage door clamp should be attached to the end of one garage door cable and hooked onto the other garage door cable.

We do not recommend trying this if you’re not experienced working around garage doors. Garage doors are extremely heavy and can cause personal injury or worse.

Replacing garage door cables requires understanding the proper procedure and tools to get the job done right—and safely.

Can I open my garage door with a broken cable?

A garage door with a broken cable or set of cables is dangerous. As someone who is not a professional without professional equipment attempting to fix it can cause more harm than good. If garage door cables come off their drums, garage doors won’t open. If garage door cables snap, garage doors will instantly become dangerous to anyone in the garage or near it. You should immediately seek professional help when garage door cables break.

How much does it cost to replace a garage door cable?

Garage door cable costs anywhere from $1.75 to $2 per foot for garage doors with two garage door cables. If your garage has three garage door cables, this will cost around $4 per foot, and garage doors with four garage doors cables will cost around $6 per foot.

Costs may be higher if the customer requests additional features or modifications, including insulation or additional garage door cables.

For a more precise cost specific to your needs, contact a professional.

How do I keep my garage door cables tights?

To keep your garage door gables tight, we recommend scheduling a garage door tune-up once a year. If you’re an HOA and don’t like garage door cables on the exterior of your garage, get garage door insulation to ensure garage doors remain tight all winter long.

Keep garage doors well maintained and garage door cables will remain tight throughout their life span.
