How to Replace a Garage Door Torsion Spring

My buddy, Ed, had a garage door spring break after 20 years and he was initially intimidated by people telling him how dangerous they are to replace, and that he should call a professional. But Ed's a hands-on guy like me and he did a thorough investigation of the process before deciding to do it himself.

With video camera in-hand (actually on a tripod), Ed documented the steps he went through to identify the correct replacement spring and how to change it safely.

Even if your door setup doesn't exactly match Ed's, you can definitely gain confidence to replace your own spring by watching Ed make it look easy.

Thanks, Ed, for volunteering to guest star in this informative episode of HandyDadTV!
