A torsion tube (or rod) plays an essential role in the lift system of a garage door. The long tube is held in place by three bearing plates that are fastened to the wall. The bearings allow the tube to spin freely as torque is applied by the spring(s). At the ends of the tube you will find cable drums that reel in the cables and thereby lifting the garage door.
Do not try to substitute any other tube or pipe other than one made specifically for garage doors. Torsion tubes come in varying lengths depending on the actual width of the door. The length you will need is approximately the width of your door plus an extra 9 inches.
This listing is for your standard residential “hollow” torsion tube. Commercial and/or solid rods are available by special order only. We can usually fill your order for a commercial torsion tube in 24 to 48 hours.

"Tremendous customer service."
"Absolutely great, had the part I needed in stock so I could fix Momma's garage door in a jif!"
"Got a fair price and some great advice from Travis. My garage door is good as new now. This is the place to go if you want to save a bunch of cash and repair your own garage door. Once he walks you through it anyone with a bit of common sense and a few tools can do it. Thanks Travis!."
"Good service. Knowledgeable. Works hard to develop customers. Do this instead of those big boxes."
"Had a garage door spring pop on Friday night. Went here Saturday morning 4/13 and didn’t realize the experience would set the standard on what customer service should be. The guy who helped me went above and beyond to explain in detail all of my options of repair. The store had everything needed to refurbish my garage door. Ended up buying everything i needed, and a few extra things to do some preventative maintenance. So glad places like this exist.."
