How to replace garage door hinges and rollers.


Rollers and hinges should be replaced with your garage door up.


First you will be required to unscrew the bolts that are attached to the hinges.


Move the hinge outward from the door to move away from the roller track.


You should do the same to the other new hinges that you would like to install.


When reattaching the hinge, tip the roller back into the track, and position the hinge.


  1. If you are dealing with a bottom hinge, remove all tension from the cable by unwinding the springs.

  2. (Note: This is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, if you are uncomfortable with this contact us at Mighty Garage Doors)

  3. Remember, the weight of the spring itself exerts a good amount of force, so, if disconnecting the cable is too difficult contact a professional (some cables are permanently attached to the lower bracket, making replacement an art form)

  4. Do the roller replacement routine described at the beginning of this section.
  5. Once all bolts are fastened down, remove all clamps, braces, etc., and test door manually a few times. Then, reengage the garage door opener if you have one, and make sure it works smoothly.

  15. That is really nice to know, I was about to find a residential garage door repairman, here in Elk Grove Village, IL. I think that I can do the repair though. I might have them come in to replace my springs soon, but at least it will be less expensive if that is all that they are doing.

  26. Technology brought so many great things to us. Can you imagine, you can use your smart phone not only with you TV, but also to open and close your garage door? In addition, it seems to me that many more people are using their technological devices to manage their home security systems as well.

  31. I can understand how this works, but I'm not sure I really want to attempt it on my own. Having the loaded spring in that kind of position makes me nervous. Garage doors are heavy, and they have a lot of moving parts. In some cases, it's just smarter to talk to a professional. http://www.auroraoverheaddoor.ca

  32. I'm glad that you put a little disclaimer in the article. Working on your garage door alone can be pretty dangerous. It would be smart to at least consult with a contractor before you start any repairs on your own. http://lipebrothersgaragedoors.net/services.html

  38. I liked your advice to have my garage door up if I need to have my rollers and hinges replaced. That seems like something that I should know after I found out that they need to be replaced for my garage door to work. I suppose keeping my door up might help with unscrewing the bolts that are attached to the hinges, so I'll keep that in mind. Thanks for the tips!
