My garage door failed spectacularly for a second time. I make an attempt to repair it but find that my extension cables are a bit too short. I hope I can explain a little about how garage doors work along the way.

safety first!

I ignored some of these safety precautions when I adjusted the tension on my screen it was scary as hell lol from what I was reading basically it needs to start to pull itself up after about the halfway mark mine was struggling a little bit too much so I had to add some tension

I kept expecting a message on the end of this episode stating that it was uploaded posthumously. Glad to hear things went okay!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening - even if the problem wasn't solved. I had never given my garage door any thought, and I'm glad to know more about how it works.
