The Torquemaster system also utilizes small plastic drums mounted on each end of the spring bar/torsion tube. Each cable wraps around the plastic drums and connects to the bottom door bracket. With the Torquemaster design, the springs provide the capability to counterbalance the weight of the door leaving the cables and drums to lift and lower the door.

Common System Issues

The idea to protect the spring(s) from the external elements on paper was a novel idea, however, in reality, it substantially increased the cost of a broken spring repair. The common problem homeowners have, it is hard to be sure if a spring in the system has broken because the spring(s) are inside the torsion tube.  A key indicator of a busted spring, the door will be quite difficult to open manually.
