The loop is too big for the bottom bracket latch. It slips right off. Is there another size that i need and where can i find it?

The loop on my old cable is almost half the size.
Asked by: BC

Photo contradicts Description

Photo shows a pair of safety cables (that run through the middle of the extension springs to prevent injury when the springs break). But description says "Winds and unwinds onto a cable drum via a torsion spring to raise and lower the garage door". So what are these? Safety Cables? or Torsion Spring Cables?

To fix the problem one needs an 18 inch swaging tool, a set of 1/8 covert ferrule and stop, and linesman pliers to cut the cable, although its the ideal length already. Too much money and too much effort! Save both by measuring the eyelet of the previous cable before buying this one. Chances are you should purchase a better fitting cable from another major online retailer for the same price or slightly cheaper.
