Garage Door Springs

Susan, Installing the new spring on the rod ( assuming it is the torsion-wind up kind and not the linear stretch kind ) is not particularly difficult or dangerous. However, winding it up with enough power to lift that heavy garage door can be both difficult and dangerous. I have a friend who mashed his had doing this and his fingers have been stiff ever since. Even though I am an avid do-it-yourselfer, this is one task I have paid someone else to risk their fingers on.
