Do you require help to identify the make of your garage door?

Q: How do I find out the make / model of my Garage Door?


A: 1. Firstly look on the garage door handle, this usually gives you the manufacturers name, ie, Henderson, Cardale, Garador etc.

2. If there is no name on the lock, then look inside the garage, usually on the inside of the garage door there is a manufacturers lable, ie, Wessex, Marley, Westland etc

digital camera

3. If you still cannot find any name or manufacturers labels on the garage door, you can take a photo of the garage door lock / handle inside and out and then e-mail the photo to me and I will try to identify the garage door for you!

Please send photos to this email address: gdsuk@icloud.com


Please make sure all photos that are sent are:

Clear and Bright!

Of the part you are needing! ie, Garage door lock, roller spindles.

Inside and outside garage door photos help!

Please reduce size of photo if possible!


Q: How do I change / replace my Garage Door Cables?

A: Changing your garage door cables can be relatively easy if you first,

1. Read carefully any Instructions that are available for your door

2. Always replace both cables/wires at the same time

3. Make sure that you have the correct tools available to enable you to complete the job

4. Make sure that you have the correct Garage Door Parts for the Repair.
(If you are replacing the cables, please also check the Roller Spindles for wear, as this is a good time to also replace them)

5. Always oil all moving parts!
