High Quality Garage Door Cables

First Choice Garage Doors uses the best technique and materials. Now, we are going to explain step by step how we do it, we don’t recommend projects as they can become vital. 
First, we remove the cable from the drum by sliding it off the head plate. Next, we inspect the cable drum and note where the cable comes in and out.
Then, the output marked by a set screw that holds the cable in place. After, mark where the cable enters the cable drum and where the cable meets the cable drum first. 
By wrapping the cable with a strip of insulation tape at the point of entry. Last, we remove the ball bearing plate with the screwdriver. 
This step exposes the cable hole that feeds through to reach the other side and the adjusting screw. Finally, we loosen the adjusting screw on the other side of the drum and remove the cable from the drum.

Alignment Is Crucial

Next, we align the new cable with the old cable. Starting at the beginning of the cables, which start with a small loop.

Then, we run them together through your tight hand (which ensures the old and the new cable have the same length).

And, continue running through until you reach the black electrical band. Also mark the new cable with black electrical tape. Then, insert the new cable into the cable drum, threading it through the opening. And through the small hole underneath the ball bearings.

Flow through until the black electrical tape meets the drum. Finally fasten the new cable by tightening the adjusting screw.

And insert the ball bearing plate again by pressing it.  Also, you need to make sure that all the garage door rollers are in place.
