Torsion springs are the most common type of springs used on garage doors.  It is critical to have the correct size springs in order to maintain a properly balanced garage door.  When ordering replacement springs make sure to use the "How to Measure" section of this page.  This will ensure you get the correct springs.  Please do not guess which springs the garage door needs.  The door will not balance properly and may cause damage or injury. 

Garage doors come from the manufacturer with springs rated for around 10,000 cycles.  If the garage door is used more then once a day we recommend that you have us convert your springs to 25,000+ cycles.  Converting the springs will increase the wire size and length.  Do not try to convert the springs yourself.  The door will not balance properly and may cause damage or injury.  Springs that are over 32 inches long or have wire size larger then 0.250 can't be converted to high cycle.

Includes:

  • Torsion spring (left, right or both)
  • Winding and stationary cones installed
  • Plastic center bushing (part 235 for optional steel bushing)
  • Winding bars (optional)


Features:

  • Black coated
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Oil tempered
  • Made in Ohio


WARNING: Torsion springs, extension springs, and related door hardware can cause serious injury or death if not handled and installed properly. Professional installation is recommended.

Do NOT attempt to install springs or hardware yourself unless you have the proper tools, reasonable mechanical aptitude and experience, and upper arm strength. Read and understand all instructions before you begin work.

Extension and torsion springs, along with attached hardware, are under extreme tension at all times. All tension must be released from springs before any work is performed.

There are two ways to get the correct torsion springs for a garage door.  Method one requires you to measure the garage doors existing springs.  Use this method if the door worked properly before the springs broke and the garage door has not been altered.  Method two requires you to measure and weigh the garage door.  Use this method if the garage door does not balance correctly, the garage door has been altered or you think the garage door has the wrong springs.

Great pair of springs Review by Brian
Price
After looking at options both locally (in Chicago) and via the web, I found Moving Up Garage Door Company to be the best in price, availability, and timeliness of shipping/delivery. Installed a pair of these that match my existing springs specifications and they work great. No problems for the installation and current usage. Great company and great product.

excellent everything Review by rob
Price
I chose Moving Up Garage Door Company of McHenry, IL for torsion springs
because of part availability, a great price, offering a
huge discount for a set of two, and location, being in the
Midwest. They delivered promptly, ground by the 2nd day.

The product was exactly correct. I installed myself and my
garage door is back to normal.

If a DIY'er in central Indiana wants to order two springs
basically for the price of one, based on the going market price locally,
then Moving Up Garage Door Company is highly recommended.

Every online resource emphasizes the potential danger of
installing torsion springs. I too strongly recommend this is
not a job for every person to try on their own without thorough
research.

My personal due diligence for my own safety found one site
emphasizing building code for not just nailing up the centerboard
where the entire torsion of the wound up spring is held to the house header.
As it turned out, my centerboard was only nailed and was pulled out from
the header about 1/16th of an inch.

I carefully installed several 2 inch+ long lag bolts on the center board and the
drum brackets (predrilling guide holes to avoid splitting). This precaution
was based on a healthy fear instilled in me from all the online articles
for DIY'ers, as I imagined myself winding the springs and having the entire spring
rip itself from the wall right into my face.
