torsion springs (the springs above the door) should only be
adjusted by a professional. Do not attempt to repair or

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

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.

Shop Rowlett Campaign a huge success!
If you keep your hard earned dollars in Rowlett, you'll be rewarded! Shoppers in Rowlett have gone above and beyond all expectations to make the "Shop Rowlett" stimulus program a huge success. More than half a million dollars in local sales receipts were turned in to the city in less than 20 days from the start of the program. In return, those shoppers were given a $25 gift card for each $250 increment of receipts from local businesses. Their names were also entered into a monthly drawing for a $250 gift card.
Although all of the individual gift cards have been distributed, shoppers who bring in $250 in local receipts for validation will continue to be entered into the monthly drawing through June 2010.
Gift cards are valid at more than 50 local businesses. Please view the list here.
Winners will be announced on the monthly news program "Rowlett, On the Lake, On the Move" hosted by Mayor John Harper.
