For converting from extension springs, EZ Set springs, or Torquemaster to standard torsion on a 8' garage door.
8' Kit includes:
1 pair CABA-96T
cables for 8' doors
1 pair DR-400-08
1 pair EBP-338KF
end bearing plates and fasteners
1 single SAB-450K
center support bearing & plate and fasteners
You will also need a hollow 14 or 15 gauge steel tube with 1" outside diameter (O.D.) at least six inches longer than your door width.
We sell these shafts
, but the longest we can ship by UPS is 8'9" long. For a garage door that is over 8' wide, we can ship two shafts with an extra spring anchor bracket kit
and a coupler
in the middle. You will not need this coupler if you are converting from a Clopay EZ Set System. If you do need a one piece shaft longer than 8'9", we suggest looking for one at a local steel supply store. Sometimes a Lowes, Menards or Home Depot will have one or they can order one for you.
You will also need a torsion spring or springs with cones installed. If you know the door size and model number you can probably enter the information here
. Click the "Model Number" tab (scroll down to bottom right). Otherwise, you can weigh your door (video instructions here
) and click the “Find by Door Weight”
tab (scroll to the bottom). On Double wide doors we recommend two springs (Note: If you order two springs, each spring needs to lift half the door weight).
If you are installing only one spring, you'll find our DIY Instructions on How to Install a Single Torsion Spring Assembly
If you are installing two springs, the Double EZ-Set Torsion Spring Conversion
instructions will help. If you do not have an EZ-Set system, you can begin at step 29, skip steps 34 through 45, and proceed to the end.
