Determine Spring Wind.
Standing inside the garage, looking at the spring(s)
If the spring is mounted
Left side of center, the spring is Right
If the spring is mounted on the right side of center
the Spring is Left Hand Wound.
Look at the end of your spring and refer to example below.
If you have 2 springs,
we highly recommend that you replace both springs.
If your spring wire size does not
match the spring chart above, please call for price.
Avoid Having to Repeat The Replacement Process
If your door cycles (opens & Closes) more than 3 times a day, we recommend our High Cycle Option.
An inexpensive upgrade that will double the spring cycle life from 10,000 up to 20,000 cycles.
What is a High Cycle Spring?
A high cycle spring is a re-engineered spring base on your existing spring measurements(See Steps 1 thru 4) creating a DIMENSIONALLY larger spring. A High Cycle spring has the same IPPT(Inch Pounds Per Turn) or torque as the existing spring but has 50% less stress when fully wound, lasting 2X longer. The installation and the number of turns are the same as the existing spring.
(Do not use screwdrivers, socket extensions,Re-Bar or anything else other than correct winding tools)
With the springs unwound Now would be the time to replace your cables(Doors up to 7' high)
