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

adjust torsion springs yourself.
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.
The City of Wylie was incorporated in 1887 along the rights-of-way of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway. It was named for Colonel W.D. Wylie, a Santa Fe Railroad official and Civil War veteran.
By 1890, Wylie's population had increased to 239 and it's first one-room school was built. From 1890 to 1900, the population increased by 300% and a two-story schoolhouse was built along with the addition of a bank and gin mills.
In 1920, Wylie received electrical service and streetlights; Ballard Avenue was graveled in 1923; and Wylie enjoyed the self-proclaimed "Onion Capital of the World" title in the 30's and 40's. Due to the late night get-togethers of citizens in which businesses stayed open until midnight on some nights, "Wide Awake Wylie" became the City's nickname in the late 40's and 50's
In the late 70's, Wylie began to receive some of the DFW growth. It's population grew significantly specifically in the 80's and 90's.
The 90's also saw two major catastrophes - a tornado hit Wylie on Mother's Day in 1993, and in December 1998, two fires (one on the 9th and another on the 11th) destroyed and/or damaged a dozen or so businesses. The City and citizens turned this catastrophe into an opportunity to revitalize downtown.
In the 21st Century, Wylie has become one of the fastest growing communities in Collin County, DFW Metroplex and the State of Texas. With this growth, the City has made a transition from "bedroom" community to a "balanced" community combining quality residential living with a healthy business climate.
To keep up with the demands of growth (159% increase in population since 2000), maintain a high quality of life, provide better access to schools and to promote economic development, Wylie plans to invest in more than 13 miles of new and reconstructed roadways over the next five years. At a current cost of approximately $1.35 million dollars per lane mile--that's more than $50 million in projects. Funding sources include the 03 & 07 County Bonds, 99 & 05 City Bonds, TxDOT and the Woodbridge Crossing (Target) developers agreement.
