Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exact Fit, Instructions, Not So Much... This item is perfect... But only if you know exactly what you want! I was looking for the cables that wind on the torsion drum for my two car garage door. My old ones slipped off the drum and sheared off, leaving the door all askew. I needed a pair of cables to restring the door. This PAIR of cables are an EXACT FIT, at 8' 8", requiring only minor adjustment in leveling the door in the tracks. They went on easy, and following a couple videos on YouTube for little tricks, the whole job took maybe an hour. Greased everything up, and back in business, quieter than ever! I gave poor marks for appearance because of the lack of instructions AND the fact that I bought too many. The packaging does not show multiple installation types, rather only depicting the old style overhead spring type door, not current torsion rod overhead roll up doors. I will keep the extra pair as back up... Roll on door, roll on... December 28, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cable end failed Cables were inexpensive, easy to install but the end link came off after a week of use causing the door to become stuck/crooked in the frame. I do not recommend this product. November 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for my old door This was just the ticket. It does wind around a cable drum and fits perfectly in the notch of the drum. It was easy to install and is a good price. August 23, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Incorrect Item Description and PDF Instructions The description is for door cables with torsion springs running through the pulley. What we are looking for and what the directions describe are SAFETY CABLES to run through the EXTENSION springs to secure it in case of a failure! March 20, 2014
