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
These cables worked perfectly for my 7 ft garage door even though the loops were larger than what I replaced. You don't need to tape the loops or anything - just make sure your garage door has the right amount of tension. There's plenty of info about this on the web, but basically you either use vise grips to slightly turn the bar and loop back over the wheel, or to loosen the screws and adjust the wheel itself. I replaced the jacked up cable in the attached image with the part listed here.
