Toolbox Tips - Easy to follow fitting tips for installers. The fitting instructions tell you how to do it, but don’t always give the full picture... …Particularly when it comes to what happens if you don’t do it right!

These little snippets are an easy refresher to help sidestep some of the common mistakes made when fitting CarTeck sectional garage doors. Bite-sized makes it easy to remember!

If you’re not the person fitting doors, make sure you share his with your installers. Saves a headache on site and the time to make a call to find out what the problem is!

Double spring cover fitting

This first toolbox tip is a classic we see a lot...

“The springs on this large double extension spring door are noisy and it got worse when I put the box lid locks on.”

Here’s how to avoid noisy springs on doors...

If you don’t fit the cover screws the lids will rest on the springs - noisy! When you fit the lid locks, the lids will compress onto the springs and be even noisier!

... and don't forget to fit the spring sliders correctly. See how it's done here!
