A garage door that comes off its tracks can pose a significant problem and a serious safety hazard to its owner and anyone attempting to operate it.

What Causes Off-Track Garage Doors
There are two primary causes for garage doors going off-track. The first reason involves cable breakage. These cables bear a significant portion of the door's weight and can sustain critical damage over time due to regular wear and tear. Nonetheless, high-quality cables often remain unaffected by this kind of damage for many years.
The second reason a garage door might come off its tracks is due to an obstruction or an object colliding with it. This encompasses situations like reversing a car when the door isn't fully open. Any extra force applied to the door while it's in operation can also lead to it coming off its tracks.
