The cable drums have a 265lbs capacity per drum and will handle cables up to 1/8″ in diameter. These are compatible replacements for your worn our or cracked OMI 8, APCO 400-8, DNS 4X, and Overhead TD-1A drums. It’s a good idea to replace your old drums if the grooves are showing wear or there are cracks or chips in you old drums.

Garage door cable drums are found on the ends of the torsion shaft and look like metal wheels or hubs. Cable drums help the garage door remain balanced and level as cables wrap around the drums. Residential and light commercial garage doors use drums with a four-inch diameter, while heavier doors use five-inch drums. Garage door cable drums are most commonly made from cast aluminum.

DIY Cable Drums Tip

Do you want to make your torsion cables last longer? Want to make your garage door more quieter? If so, use 3/32″ Torsion Cables with your new cable drums. The smaller diameter cables wont rub together as the door raises and lowers. This lack of friction will greatly extend the life of your cables. Since the smaller cables don’t rub, the garage door will run much quieter. This will also put less stress on the rest of the moving parts and make the entire system run better and last longer. Don’t worry, the 3/32″ garage cables are still plenty strong enough to lift any residential garage door!

    On Dec 28th one of the cables broke on my garage door. I called a well known Garage Repair /installer who advertises on a local Toronto radio channel. I waited 7 hours and after a number of calls to their dispatcher no one showed up. I went on you-tube and found a video on repairing various garage door components . these were put on Youtube by Diy garage door parts and I followed the link to their website . I paid $49 dollars for two sets of cables, spring tools and some new coiling drums. The over the phone quote from the Toronto repair company was over $250.00 plus parts. I am glad they never showed up. Today January 12 I installed the cables and door works great. I highly recommend your products. Tero Tuononen Toronto Canada
