torsion springs (the springs above the door) should only be
adjusted by a professional. Do not attempt to repair or
adjust torsion springs yourself.
Old Springs - Your garage door’s 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
owner's manual for the manufacturer's recommendation.
Early pioneer T.U. Wade discovered the rock wall when digging a well in the mid-
1800s, about the time the town was founded. Wade suggested naming the town
Rockwall after the curious geological formation. The name was accepted and the town
of Rockwall was platted on April 17, 1854.
When it was platted, Rockwall was part of Kaufman County. Rockwall was located in
the panhandle of Kaufman County, and conducting business meant traveling the long
road from Rockwall to Kaufman. In an effort to strengthen and expand business in
Rockwall, the town seceded from Kaufman County, forming its own county.
Rockwall’s earliest settlers arrived in the early 1840’s, when Texas was still a republic.
These early pioneers arrived either on horse, mule-drawn wagons or foot by way of
the National Road of the Republic. Rockwall was located where the road crossed the
East Fork of the Trinity River. Occasionally, the Trinity River’s waters would swell,
making the road impassable. Some travelers simply stopped here to begin their new
The first few decades of Rockwall’s recorded history were slow. Without a means to
export agricultural crops, raising cattle became the town’s principal industry. During
these years, Rockwall remained a small village with only a few businesses in the
downtown area and large farms beyond the central square. It was not until the arrival
of the Missouri, Kansas & Texas rail line that the population grew and the town began
to prosper. Census records show the town’s population doubled in size from 1880 to
1890. The train made exporting and importing convenient for business, and cotton
production began to overtake the cattle raising industry.
By 1890, Rockwall’s growth was highlighted in many local newspapers. By the turn of
the century however, it was clear that Rockwall could not compete with nearby Dallas
and Rockwall remained a small agricultural town. During the Great Depression,
Rockwall suffered along with the rest of the county, seeing farm values drop 60%.
