What Are Garage Door Springs? #infographic

Torsion springs are normally mounted horizontally above the garage door, but sometimes on older homes with smaller garages, they may be mounted at the bottom. Cables mounted at the underside of the garage door wind up the springs as the garage door fall, producing energy collected. This stored energy is used to unwind the spring when it's time to open the garage door and raise the lid.

An extension spring is the least common type of spring at the garage door. Generally you'll see them above the door line but occasionally they'll be mounted vertically to the left. This system uses springs connected to the wires, attached to the bottom corners of the garage door. When the garage is closed the springs are stretched or extended, and the tension in the extended springs is what raises the garage door back up.
