What Happens When a Garage Door Cable Snaps?

A typical garage door has two cables attached to the lower portion of the garage door where the force is concentrated to lift the garage door along the track. If either the left-side or right-side cable snaps, this will make the garage door unbalanced.

When you attempt to open the door, the door will try to lift itself at a severe angle — possibly damaging the garage door or other components of the garage door system such as the rails or the motor.
