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
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.
Welcome to the City of The Colony's website. We have established this site as a means of providing the citizens of The Colony and visitors a wealth of information on our "City by the Lake".
From city services to leisure activities, business and play, it's all here! We are a community of neighbor helping neighbor, of residents volunteering their energy for community activities, of quiet, tree-lined streets with the shorelines of Lake Lewisville in our backyard. The Colony offers up a home-town feel with big-city advantages not far away. We are conveniently located just thirty-five minutes from downtown Dallas and the DFW airport is less than a twenty-five minute drive.
The Colony continues to improve and grow and we invite you to come be a part of it. You'll feel right at home!
The Colony is fortunate to have a large amount of acreage available for park use as well as some very scenic areas accessible by our local parks. There are several neighborhood and pocket parks that allow residents easy access to playgrounds, picnic facilities and open play areas. We also have athletic facilities, such as Five Star Athletic Complex, Turner Soccer Complex and the Little League Complex that are built for more competitive functions. Stewart Creek Park on Lewisville Lake provides great access to the water as well as a wonderful venue for events like Liberty by the Lake, Family Fright Night or your own family reunion, birthday party or family picnic. Hidden Cove Park, also on Lewisville Lake, is great for camping adventures and boating activities. Eastvale Park is operated by Blue Sky Sports Center and is one of the premier soccer facilities in the area. Blue Sky Sports Center, Hawaiian Falls Water Park, The Tribute/Wynnwood Peninsula and Hidden Cove Park also represent public-private partnerships where the City provides the land while a private enterprise develops and operates the facility to provide services and amenities to residents without adding to the tax burden.
Providing parks and recreation facilities is a great way to improve our quality of life and the City takes that goal very seriously. The Community Development Corporation and the City are continuously looking for opportunities to develop new amenities and enhance existing facilities/services.
