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.
William Sachse, who came to America from Herford, Prussia in 1840, was the founder of Sachse. At the age of 25, he arrived in Texas in 1845, securing 640 acres in Collin County. He later acquired an additional 5,000 acres. Sachse erected one of the first cotton mills and gins in the county. Ox and horsepower operated the gin until 1869, when a fire destroyed the gin and the animals were replaced with a steam-run plant.
In 1886, William Sachse gave 100 feet of right-of-way frontage through all of his holdings to the railroad. In exchange, the railroad built a depot and named the town Sachse. When the railroad built the depot, signs at both ends of the building read “Saxie”. The mistake was later corrected reflecting the proper spelling, but as a result of the error, numerous legal documents during that time designated the town as “Saxie”.
Also in the 1880s, the approximate 5000 acres owned by William Sachse decreased substantially when Mr. Sachse agreed to be bondsman for the Collin County tax collector. The county official fled with a large sum of county money, leaving Mr. Sachse heavily obligated. Needless to say, a large portion of valuable property was sold to raise cash quickly.
Sachse is a rural community that is growing rapidly with the expansion of the North Dallas telecom corridor and the 190 President George Bush Turnpike extending through the southern part of the City. Mostly residential, retail and commercial businesses are beginning to develop along Highway 78. City officials and the Economic Development Corporation are hopeful that restaurants and retail establishments will develop along 190.
With the adoption of the updated Comprehensive Plan, the City is poised for future growth within the realm of the country living atmosphere.
