Have to agree with those who say getting new openers. Funny thing - I
did a safety retrofit on my extension springs last summer, pulling
safety cables through, based on thread here, and couple weeks ago, one
snapped. No harm done. Course I know I should replace them, but it was
late, and I wanted to use my car in the morning, so just re-attached/
adjusted tension on the thing, since it snapped at the end as usual.
There was one of the 4 I didn't get to last summer, or since- the one
over the "junk pile."
