Old Springs - Your garage doorís springs are arguably the
most important and most dangerous part of your door. Springs
wear out. When they break, injury can result. If you have an
older garage door, have your springs inspected by a
professional technician and replaced if needed. If your door
has two springs, both should be replaced, even if one is not
broken. This will not only prevent any damage caused by the
breaking of the second spring, but also keep your door
Loud Springs - Springs can squeak and be noisy. This is
caused by normal use and does not necessarily indicate a
problem. Before calling a professional service technician,
use a spray-on lubricant (recommended especially for garage
doors). If the noise persists, call a professional garage
door installer for service. WARNING - Springs are under high
tension. Only qualified persons should adjust them.
Garage door springs, cables, brackets, and other hardware
attached to the springs are under very high tension and, if
handled improperly, can cause serious injury. Only a
qualified professional or a mechanically experienced person
should adjust them, but only by carefully following the
The torsion springs (the springs above the door) should only
be adjusted by a professional. Do not attempt to repair or
adjust torsion springs yourself.
A restraining cable or other device should be installed on
the extension spring (the spring along the side of the door)
to help contain the spring if it breaks.
WARNING - Never remove, adjust, or loosen the screws on the
bottom brackets of the door. These brackets are connected to
the spring by the lift cable and are under extreme tension.
Regularly lubricate the moving parts of the door. However,
do not lubricate plastic idler bearings. Consult the door

Settlement of Northeast Tarrant County began in 1850 when Isaac Parker built his log cabin home in what is now southwestern Hurst. After the Civil War, more settlers moved into the area and with them came the need for schools and churches. Daniel Arwine responded to this need by deeding six acres of land for the construction of a new school, church, and cemetery. All of the original development was located in what is now Hurst's Bellaire Subdivision.
In 1870, William L. Hurst moved into the area with his wife and seven children. This date is usually cited as the official establishment of Hurst. They settled approximately one mile north of the present Highway 10 (Hurst Boulevard). When the railroad came through the settlement in 1903, the local station was named Hurst's Station.
Later growth in the small rural town slowed when east-west rail routes were changed and routed through Arlington rather than the Mid-Cities area. In the early 1900's, sand and gravel was excavated from the Trinity River bottoms, later in the 1920's larger excavations began. The Work Projects Administration build a brick school in the town in 1940. In 1949, Hurst had its first post office when the Souder Family added a postal station to the corner of their grocery store as a service to 1,000 residents.
Hurst incorporated as a general law city on September 25, 1952 with a total population of 2,700. During the next five years, the population increased to 5,700 and continued to grow to 31,000 by the year 1981. One of the main catalysts for this growth boom was the opening of the $3 million Bell Helicopter plant which pioneered the helicopter aviation industry in Texas.
The advent of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in 1974 contributed dramatically to the growth of Hurst and the Mid-Cities area in the years to follow. The airport has become one of the area's major industries and employers, and has helped the economy by bringing in new development and industry that relies heavily on airport services. Other important developments included the Northeast campus of Tarrant County Community College which opened in Hurst in 1968; and North East Mall which opened it's doors in 1972. Current population for Hurst is approximately 38,500, and the average household income is estimated at over $75,000.
