When opening the garage door, the springs unwind and the tension lifts the door as it turns the shaft. Meanwhile, the cable drums turns and wraps the cables around the grooves. When the door is lowered, the cables will then unwind and the springs will become unwound, restoring their full tension. Because of the dynamic and codependency nature of the cables and springs, it is important for them both to be working perfectly.
