Definitely quieter and smoother. The cracking and snapping noise is gone. The door is much smooth also, the door did not like to open from partially open, now no problem. The old rollers were fairly worn out and sloppy, these new rollers are very smooth rolling and quiet. The metal thickness is thicker and stronger than the original hinges. Fairly easy project took about an hour to do the hinges and rollers. I did add roller sleeves (10) from ebay, I think this helped also.
I would recommend to anyone with a bit of know how to do this, take it easy one hinge at a time, cordless impact on low setting helped.
Two thumbs up.
Bought this kit because it seemed to be high quality (compared to others). IT IS! Brackets are thicker and bigger than original ones on my 28 year old door. They fit perfectly, stabilized the door and made it quiet like new! Spend the extra $ and buy this kit! You won't be disappointed.NOTE: They put "FRAGILE" all over the box, but the Post Office still tried (unsuccessfully) to destroy it!
I have a 10' door. The kit will let me do the 1 through 3 outside hinges, I wish it came with 12 wheels. Of course the cables are not long enough, but I'll live, lol!
Turned a 30-year-old 16' sectional garage door into a real smooth and quiet door.Parts were even heavier duty than the original. Have told several family members& friends to buy the identical parts for their old doors too.
Hinge screw openings did not match on my garage door; the bottom hole was slightly off and had to drill it out. Measuring the old hinges is my advice to potential buyers.
