As the garage door is lifted above, the torsion springs also unwind, and the force that it produces contributes to the lifting of the door.
These cables are the companions of the torsion springs that assist it on the job.

Extension Springs Cable Replacement
There are different types of cables that complement the different types of springs as well.
Naturally, there are also cables for extension springs that accompany its function and make the operation easier.

Because of this, the closing of the door allows the extension springs to stretch, hence the name.

The garage door is also installed with a set of safety cables that prevent a broken garage door from falling.
If the garage door has been damaged, it is the safety mechanism employed to prevent further damages and injuries on the people nearby.

Therefore, if the springs break, these cables can easily hold up the springs mid-air to keep further problems from arising.
