I bought the set to upgrade/replace broken spring garage door. It was easy to install and very satisfied with the result so decided to buy another one to upgrade my other garage door. My garage ceiling now look neat without those old springs .

    The hardware provided is good except the screws they provide to connect the torsion rod together are junk. They're supposed to be self tapping but the hole they provide is too small for the screw and the screw is of a softer metal than what it's tapping into. I drilled through the rod and put a #10 - 24 x 1.5" machine screw and nylon locking nut on it. The directions in the box were in French with links on the cover for Spanish and English versions I guess we're supposed to print ourselves, but in the hardware bag there was an English version. Throw it out and use your intuition because a lot got lost in the translation. Seriously, the directions are horrible. I did 2 of these and the first one took 3 hours. The second one about 45 minutes. There is no center support but I bought 2 after I had them up because I didn't like the wobble in the torsion bar when there was no spring load on it. HD sells them and they're cheap, so you might want to just order this up front.

    Bailed my car out of garage jail
    Nine days ago I was on the wrong side of the 50/50 chance that my car would be on the inside of the garage when the torsion spring inevitably broke. It had a good 16 year run. Not able to open the garage door by hand, and really reliant on my car, I ordered a replacement right away. After some research, I decided to install a double torsion spring system instead of the single spring system that I had. Because this comes in a full kit and I wasn't able to buy just the springs, I installed the new cables, winding units, brackets, etc. It took me about 2 hours to do the repair without any help. I spent 3 hours, really, because I thought it was a good time to replace all the rollers, as well. The two issues I have with this purchase are: 1. One of the springs was missing a set screw. I had to use one of the set screws from my old spring. 2. Both springs are supposed to be the same length, but one was 2" longer than the other. Needing my vehicle, i decided to do the install with one spring stretched out a bit, making sure to carefully match the spring lengths on the rod with the measured lengths when the springs are relaxed and laying on the ground. I'm hoping that the one stretched spring doesn't mean that my door is unsafe. Make sure to read up and carefully follow directions. The order in the steps you take is important. After I completed the whole task and lubricated everything properly, the door opens smoothly and with ease. It's much quieter too. I think that's because of the new rollers and the fact that two springs causes less labor on all parts in order to open the door. Whoever installed the door 16 years ago didn't weigh the door and use the proper springs. At 227 pounds, it's too heavy for the single spring that was up there. I'm surprised it lasted that long. I'm hoping that Clopay or Ez-Set reads this and gives me some input about having the two springs of different lengths installed.

      Overall Great, Would Recommend!
      Home depot advertises this set as containing a cable assembly which you can see in the picture. However, it was not included in the package and is not mentioned in the product's installation manual. Pretty misleading because I needed those for this install to work which ended up requiring more trips to the store. The box came torn nearly in half and was taped enough to hold it together but there was no damage to any of the parts. I may have gotten an extra install manual in french though. Getting things just right during installation as a one person project is a bit of a pain but being able to perform the installation yourself is nice which I liked a lot about this product. Wish they made options for which spring to pick without dealing with some weird custom order by calling the company. I had to make my door heavier by bolting metal plates into it. At least it's reinforced now?

        The Torsion Conversion Kit worked out as expected. The kit was straightforward to install, and the instructions were easy to follow and well written. I liked the winder which makes tensioning the spring, a scary part of the install, much less scary. I have had the door in operation for a couple of weeks since installing the kit, and it has been working just fine. The installation met my expectations, and I saved a nice piece of change installing the kit instead of having a garage door contractor come and repair my broken spring.

        Decent option for DIY I have 2 single doors, both with a Dalton TorqueMaster. One of them broke 2 years ago and it cost $550 to replace the whole thing - apparently, they can't be repaired or if they can, it costs just as much as removing it and replacing it with a normal kit. So when the other one broke, I wasn't looking forward to another $550. I found this kit and watched the videos on YouTube several times. Yeah, I can do that, as long as I don't assign a value to my time. It took me about 4 hours to do all the work because I had to keep adjusting the spring so the cables would wind correctly on the pulley, but still not bad for spreading it out over two evenings. The tube is in two pieces with a coupler (you can see the coupler in the product picture). You have to drill a hole in each tube and screw in a sheet metal screw. I wound up with smashed threads because the screw would not catch and tap itself in, so I drilled out the hole in the tube and drilled through the other side, then used machine screws and nuts to join the tubes. Other than that little hitch, it works fine, and I saved $400 by doing it myself.

        The torsion spring set was fairly easy to install and took approximately 2-3 hours. It works great and is much neater looking than the side mounted tension springs. It was very easy to set the correct tension on the spring by using a power drill. You either put it in forward or reverse until you get the perfect tension set for your particular garage door. The installation manual did a good job explaining how to assemble everything. On the overall it was a straight forward and pleasant installation job. I would highly recommend it.

                  Noisy system. Internal support plastic for spring chatters against spring. Spring torque set as noted. Garage door opens and closes freely as noted to test. Just noisy.

                    First thing was the packaging was terrible and most importantly I never received all the parts. It was missing both of the mounting brackets when i received it. I called customer service and they were great! They put me on the phone with clopay's service department and i was able to tell them about the missing pieces and they were supposed to send them out to me immediately. 4 weeks later i still havent recieved them so i will be returning this product because I had to purchase another kit from a different place.

                    Easy install, as others have said middle connector does allow for flex. Would be better with a center support included for 8' doors as well as 10' and larger.

                    I really love the Clopay Z-Set. I have installed three of these to replace extension springs. Read the reviews and save yourself some heart ache by buying bolts to replace the torsion bar machine srcrews. The screws are junk. I thought about knocking off a star as Clopay is well aware of this substandard part, yet the fix is really easy and inexpensive to do yourself. I think the bolt was the best fix. Also, I have added the center support bracket even though my doors were only two 9 ft and one 8 ft. It really helps.

                    The Torreón bar across the top would bend because there was too much pressure for the multi piece bar to handle. Tried to lessen the tension on the spring, but in order to get enough tension off the spring for the garage to function properly the cable would start to come off the end caps.
