Questions & Answers

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?

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
This is the safety cable that goes thru the spring and to the wall in case of an unintentional spring detachment. You need a retraction cable
