one piece garage door should stay open at any angle?


I looked at the garage opener manual, and it said the tilt-up garage door should stay open if manually opened half way.

Is the door supposed to stay open at any angle, like 3/4 open too?

My door does not do that. If I open it 3/4 and let go, it will crash closed.

I'm actually going to replace it with steel sectional door. I know the springs are very dangerous.

But just for my own curiosity, I was wondering what the normal behavior of a swingup door should be.

I can get a new 16' sectional door with lifetime/standard warranty for $500 all included, so servicing this ancient door is not worth it.
