I had a spring let loose in my garage one night ...I thought someone was busting down a door... that spring could have killed someone.....was not tethered. This setup came with the house when we bought it....there was no electric garage door opener installed.

Thank you!

I just had the center mount bracket pull the lag bolts out of the wall and I had a significant moment of "the willies" when I thought about the spring's power to destroy.

Had I known a safety wire was a thing, I would have paid the repair tech install one.
