MAINTENANCE TIPS: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DISASSEMBLE
THE BARREL AND GREASE THE SPRINGS.
No maintenance is required for the springs located inside of the barrel. Check the
door operation operation to make sure that door is working working well. If during operation operation the door
is hard to open or hot off the floor, the tension will need to be adjusted. Should
spring adjustment be necessary,
refer to detailed instructions posted
on our website.
1: Assess the work space. Make sure there is sufficient room and lighting in
the unit in order to make the repair. You will need approximately 48" of
clearance to safely stage the barrel assembly and perform the take down.
Remove any objects in the unit that obstruct or infringe upon the work space.
2: Tools Recommended:
* Screw gun
* 3 "C" type vice clamps
* Optional winding bar
3: Inspect the damaged door unit. Identify whether the door has 1 or 2 springs
whether there is tension still applied on any spring(s). Assume that if a spring
not broken, it is still tensioned. Removing tension on a spring can cause
injury or harm. Refer to the door manufacturer's instructions for the
procedures for removing tension before continuing further.
4: Identify the location where the brackets attach to the wall and whether there
is 4any additional guide attachment. Make note of the configuration for step #7.
5: Bring the door into an approximate 3/4 closed position so that the top of
the curtain is rolled over the top of the axle assembly and is accessible.
Place a clamp on both the right and left guide right beneath the bottom
bar to hold the curtain into place.
6: Using the screw gun, remove
the teks screws attaching the
curtain to the axle assembly.
7: (A) Unfasten the bracket above the guides from the jamb of the wall. If there
attachment between the bracket and the guide, then skip down to part (D).
(B) If the bracket is attached to the guide with carriage bolts, remove them
the screw gun and then skip down to part (D).
(C) If the bracket is attached to the guide with tab and slots, pull up to lift
bracket tab away from the slot. In some instances, it may be necessary to
loc tab before you are able to disengage the bracket tab away from the guide
Once detached, proceed to part (D).
(D) Clamp the drum of the axle to the curtain assembly with the 3rd "C" clamp.
Repeat the same steps (A) thru (D) on the other bracket.
8: Once the defective axle and
bracket assembly have been
removed, lift the Roll Up Door barrel
assembly into place.
9: Line the hole on the brackets up with the holes left in the jamb.
Secure the Roll Up Door bracket to the wall using appropriate fasteners 9
supplied. Repeat this step on the other bracket.
10: Rotate the barrel assembly around until the
black line is facing forward in the middle of
the drum. Bring the top of the curtain down
and place it so that it lines up with the line
on the drum. Line the edge of the curtain
up with the edge of the barrel assembly and
secure with a vice clamp.
11: While secure, fasten the curtain to the barrel in 113-4 evenly spaced
12: Once secured, remove vice grips from the curtain, 12 as well as the guides.
13: Apply tension spring to the Roll Up Door door
by the tension adjuster on the left end
of the barrel clockwise. Test door for
operation and repeat as necessary.

REMEMBER: SAFETY FIRST! Anyone who has above average mechanical skills and is able to follow detailed yet easy to read instructions, should be able to safely install sectional garage doors with extension springs or the "simple set torsion spring system". Standard torsion spring doors should always be installed by a professional. Since we have no way of knowing your skills, we recommend all overhead doors be installed by a professional.
