Garage Door Torsion Springs

You Can Replace Your Own Garage Door Torsion Springs

When you have a garage door, sometimes you have to replace the garage door torsion springs. The torsion springs help you pull the door open. They are under tension when the door is closed, and when you open the door, they pull up so that you aren't lifting the entire weight of the door on your own. That's why it's important to replace the springs when they start to go bad, otherwise you are stuck with a door you can't open.

When you start looking for new garage door torsion springs the Internet is a good place to start. You can find just about any spring you want, and then some. One spring that you can find is the Slide-co/prime GD12278 garage door spring. This spring costs about $46.00 on When you buy this you get one spring, one 8 foot 8 inch safety cable and a cable clamp. Or, you can try the Prime-Line garage door spring with spring containment safety cable. On you can find this spring for about $25.00. You can use this spring on doors up to 9 foot wide and 7 foot tall, with 4 panels and 4 sections.

You shouldn't install garage door torsion springs unless you are very experienced in do-it-yourself skills. Installing a spring can be dangerous if you slip and have an accident. They are under a lot of pressure, and if something happens that causes one to get loose, you could get hurt. To install a spring, you will need to know what size your door is, if your springs are left hand wound or right hand wound, and how tall your door is. Smaller doors might only need 1 spring, whereas larger doors need 2. If you know the manufacturer's name it will make it easier to find the spring.

Making sure that the garage door torsion springs on your garage door work well means that you will be able to open and close your garage door with ease. If the spring goes out you can replace it yourself if you have enough handyman skills and tools, but you should only attempt it if you feel sure you know what you are doing.
