torsion springs (the springs above the door) should only be

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

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
owner's manual for the manufacturer's recommendation.
Parker's First Settlers
150 years ago the area that is now Parker was covered with prairie grass, grass so high and thick that the first settlers here had to burn their fields two years straight to prepare the land for farming. Some of the families that came to farm and raise their children were the Dillehays, Gregorys, Hogges, McCrearys, and Parkers. John C. Parker was the first known settler. Our community was named for his son, William C. Parker.
1846 through the 1940s
The Corinth Presbyterian Church was established on August 2, 1846. The first school was established about 1880 in nearby Halltown (two miles east of Parker) and was known as the "Who'd A Thought It School." It was a rough and tumble school with a large enrollment of 90 children. According to long-time resident Arthur Hogge, the longest-lasting schoolmaster laid his gun on his desk to maintain order in the classroom. In the 1880s, T.L. Johnson ran a gristmill and a general store. At about this time, the St. Louis and Southwestern Railroads planned a route through Parker and town lots were laid out. Subsequently, the railroads decided to lay tracks through Wylie instead of Parker, and with this, Parker's prospective business boom faded.
