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

DIY Tip: Any time you work on a torsion spring garage door system you have to take the tension off of the springs. To take the tension off you will need a set of Winding Bars. There are two different kinds of winding bars, round and hex. They both to the same thing but the hex bars are stronger and easier to grip. Round winding bars are a little harder to grip and not quite as strong, but they still do the same job. Winding bars fit into the slots at the end of your torsion springs, you put pressure on them to loosen the set screws on the springs. After that you use them in succession to release the tension.
