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.

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?

It is supposed to be a safety cable kit, but it lacks the parts to anchor one end. In order to make this 'kit' work, you will need to purchase more pieces. Not much of a kit in my estimation; I expect all the required pieces to be there. BTW - it won't tell you this on the outside of the package, you need to open the package and read the instructions

It is a bit soon to judge it longevity as I have only had it on for a week. The cable seems to be made from heavy duty material and it was easy to install. The reason I did not give it five stars is that it is too soon to tell whether or not it has the life I want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 8 foot, well really 8' 8" but worked fine. Replaced old worn-out torsion-spring cables with this set. The old cables were 8' 4", and 8' 6", possibly from stretching but more likely from one having been replaced at some point. Calculated it out and figured 8' replacement cables would be best. Thing is, these cables, although listed on the website as 8' cables, turned out to be a set of 2, 8' 8" cables (same SKU number, slightly different model number). Thankfully, when I got them home, 8'8" worked perfectly. Another couple of inches would have been too long for the grooved pulley. This was an old door, probably about 60 years, so those of you with similar old pulleys take heart: the 8'8" length should work okay. Used youtube and internet for installation instructions -- the printed instructions that came with this pair of cables were for an entirely different door design, but the cables worked great. This would have been a 5 star review except for the miss-labeling on the website. Bottom line: this kit contains 2 8' 8" cables, NOT 8' cables, but they worked fine for my old garage door system. Much smoother, quieter than the old, worn-out pulleys and since they're of matched length, hopefully they won't jump the track in a few months like the old ones did.
