Product Overview

Installing garage door safety cables can help reduce the risk of damage and serious injury should a garage door spring break when it is under pressure. The garage door safety cable will prevent the spring from flying across the garage if it breaks. A spring will only break when it is under pressure, and that is when it is most dangerous. Always unplug any electric door opener, secure the door in the open position and wear safety glasses. Change garage door springs in pairs and always install safety cables.

is this the cable for the old style with the spring on ea side that helps in lifting

Asked by: paul
No, this SK7136 is a safety cable that should be installed inside the extension springs to prevent the springs from flying all over if they break. The lifting cables are SK7112. Go to our website to find more info.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well - Easy To Install These garage door spring safety cables installed exactly as they were supposed to on the inside of the springs. A spring upon breaking can become like a missile so having safety cables is a good idea, especially on older garage doors. There are plenty of extra 1/4" diameter bolts and nuts in the package, but you may want to also install a washer against the bolt head and a split/lock washer on the nut side. It takes about 50 minutes to install per garage sure to unplug an electric garage door opener if you have one while doing the installation. Provided you have a bit of mechanical aptitude and can handle a step ladder, the installation is relatively simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Older garage doors may lack safety cables Extension-spring garage doors need safety cables. If a spring breaks, the cable prevents it from flying around and causing damage or injury. The cables install in minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! Product is good quality, had all the necessary attachments and was easy to install. Gives me piece of mind knowing door springs can't come loose and hurt someone.
