  • Is your garage door older than a £1 note?

    Author: Weatherstop | July 18, 2017

    It can be near impossible to find spare parts for older obsolete doors, leaving many people unable to make repairs when something breaks.

    If you find yourself stuck without spare parts, the prospect of buying an expensive brand new door can be daunting.

    Fortunately it is possible to give an old door a new lease of life without forking out for a new one by using new door gear.

    Replacement door gear allows you to modernise the mechanical components of your door with readily available parts. You can even use new door gear to make your old canopy door fully retractable!

    We have a wide range of door gear available to suit your needs and save you some cash.

    Head over to our Garage Door Gear & Lock Packs page for more information and to see the complete range.

  • Security

    Author: Weatherstop | July 11, 2017

    Let’s talk security.

    The prospect of having valuable possessions taken from your home is never a good one and while standard locking mechanisms found on garage doors can be enough to deter a would-be thief, they aren’t always enough to keep a determined intruder at bay.

    This is when additional security locks can be a great way to ensure your belongings stay exactly that; yours.

    There are many garage door security locks on the market, each with their own unique selling points. In order to find the right solution for you, there are a few things you should ask yourself…

    ‘What type of door do I have?’

    The type of product you need will differ if you have a roller shutter door, sectional door or an up-and-over style door. This will affect things like installation position and the way in which you unlock the device.

    ‘Do I want big and bold or a more subtle solution?’

    Having a chunky lock visible on your door is ideal for telling thieves you mean business, but the neighbours might not appreciate your choice quite so much. Fortunately there are many different form factors and designs to choose from depending on your needs.

    ‘Will this be convenient for me?’

    You can turn your garage into a miniature Fort Knox, but if it takes you half an hour to access your lawn mower, you may have gone too far. Try and find a lock that strikes a balance between security and usability.

    Once you have asked these questions, head over to our locks and security devices page to see our full range. You are sure to find the perfect lock for you!

    If you have any trouble finding the correct one for you or if you would like a second option, feel free to email our team at . One of our tech support team members will then help to identify a suitable product and answer any questions you may have.


  • Part identification

    Author: Weatherstop | May 18, 2017

    Trying to determine the specific parts you need for your garage door can seem like a daunting prospect, perhaps your door is so archaic and rusted as to render it unidentifiable or maybe you've recently moved house and have been left confounded by the origins of your new garage door.

    Everyday we receive calls from people all over the UK who've found themselves in these types of frustrating situations. And through our extensive knowledge and some administrative wizardry, we can help you identify those pesky parts that have been keeping you awake at night.

  • Help I've lost my keys!

    Author: Weatherstop | May 11, 2017

    If your garage door keys have gone missing, fear not! We have a wide range of handles and lock barrels to suit many doors.

     ‘Can you just send me a replacement set of keys?’

    Unfortunately, for security purposes, it is not possible to obtain replacement keys for a specific lock. You can however replace the lock barrel or handle, which will come with its own new keys.

    ‘How do I know which one to get?’

    Simply head over to our locks & handles page and view the items for the same manufacturer as your door.

    Most locks and handles can be identified visually, but it is always worth checking the spindle and spigot lengths for handles as shown on our locks & handles page.

    If you have any trouble finding the correct one or if you would like a second option, feel free to take a picture and send it to . One of our tech support team members will then help to identify a suitable replacement and answer any questions you may have.


  • Garage door automation

    Author: Weatherstop | April 28, 2017

    Well... it's been quite a while since we've had a blog update! We've all been so busy, how time flies.

    This time I'd like to go over automating your garage door. A fundamental aspect of all modern doors, but how do you know which type to go for? Read on...

    Automating your garage door

    Automating your garage door with an electrical opener solves multiple problems and can further protect your garage door from unwanted intruders.

    The biggest benefit of automating your garage door is not having to manually lift and close the door on a daily basis, saving time, and also keeping you dry in rainy weather (and let’s face it, in England it rains more than we’d all like, unfortunately). Not to mention, garage doors are really heavy! If you struggle with your door it might be better to let a motor do the work for you.

    Here at WSGarageDoorSpares (A Weatherstop brand) we only stock Sommer garage door openers, why? Because they are by far and away the best garage door openers money can buy, a prime example of high class German engineering.

    You may now be thinking, what are the major benefits of having an automated garage door, well for starters they have a pre-mounted drive meaning they are straight forward to install. Additionally providing you have a plug socket in your garage then you need no further electronics to power the opener, meaning no expensive electrician call out.

    Furthermore with a Sommer door opener the garage door becomes far more secure as once the door is closed, the motor locks in place meaning the door can’t be forced open. And every time you use the handset the codes between the handset and motor change meaning nobody can copy previous codes to gain access to your garage.

    In addition to extra security all Sommer openers also come with a 24 month warranty, an innovative drive system that provides exceptionally quiet running and all openers are TÜV, CE and type approved under European radio regulations.

    Feel free to shop now for our Sommer garage door openers, luxury at an affordable price, what more could you ask for? Nice weather? I agree, we can all live in hope.
