QUESTION: Does the Torsion Spring dimension matter when buying this 1/8" cable for my 8' door? I see different ones like 116" 104" 128" etc, is this a factor or are the cables the same? by None N 11/18/2013
ANSWER: The cable will work with any of the torsion springs. by Jeff H a
STAFF ANSWER: The 116" 104" 128" is the overal length of the cable. When you buy cable for a torsion door you need to order it based on the height of your door. If your door is 8 feet tall then you need a torsion spring cable set that is 116 inches long. by Matthew O a
