Answer: 
The height of the door should not matter. It is weight of the door which determines the rating of the spring you should use.

Answer: 
If you are unsure as to the weight of your door, we recommend seeking the help of a professional garage repair service. A 140lb spring will damage the opener and door if they are not matched properly.

Can I use 140 LB extension springs instead of 130 LB springs as long as I change both for a single car garage

The current spring (broken) is color coded yellow for 130 LB springs. I see that the local store has the 140lb in stock. Is the 140LB spring better for a single car garage door than 130LB

Thanks

Answer: 
You need to know an accurate weight for your door in order to choose the proper spring. You can try the 140 lb. to see how they work out. If you are unable to adjust the spring enough to allow the door to stay down when you close it, you need a lighter weight spring. Using a spring which is underweight however will likely cause the springs to wear out prematurely.

Answer: 
The spring strength is based on the weight of the door. If your door currently has a 130lb spring on it, a 140lb spring should operate just fine.

Does the length of spring matter? I've seen 28" replacement springs at another website, and I think Home Depot marketplace has 32" replacements spring. What is the size of this replacement spring?

Answer: 
As I recall, these springs were stated as 25 inches. I suppose the measurement depends on whether you count the end coils on each end that attach the springs.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 140 Lb. Extension Springs The weight rating on these springs is accurate. I have a single car wood garage door that is over 50 years old but still in good shape on the outside. I weighed the door with a bathroom scale with the door down and disconnected from the springs and cables, and the weight came to 140 lbs. I bought these 140 lb. springs. They work great once you get the cable tension properly and evenly adjusted, which can take a bit of fine tuning so that the door will stay down when you close it while also not requiring effort to raise the door. The key to good results is that you must get an accurate weight on your door. Don't go by some chart that claims to estimate weight by number of sections and panels, since some doors are fiberglass and others are wood. You also definitely need two good sized "C" clamps to hold the door up from each side when working on the installation and adjustments. Always replace both springs together. Buying the pack of two is definitely more economical than buying single springs. May 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent springs Springs are excellent replacement springs. I weighed my door before purchasing springs and it weighed exactly 143.7 lbs. So I purchased these 140lb springs. And guess what? They were a perfect match. I can 1/2 or 3/4 close the door and it will stay exactly in place. It only takes light pressure to open or close the door. Im impressed. I'm using it with a garage door opener, but tested it by hand after install to make sure it was adjusted correctly. As for the other 3 star review, I wouldn't mark it a 3 star product as you don't know how to install a spring. All newer springs have the double coils at the end, so it requires a hook or clasp of some sort on the mounting sides. If you are replacing an open ended spring with this, buy a hook or clasp at store while there. Lastly, this is the best price around. The other competitors sell the exact same spring's for twice the price. You pay ~$25 for two springs with saftey cables where at the other stores, it is ~$20-25 for a single spring with saftey cable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very difficult to fasten What I expected to be a fifteen to twenty minute job changing two springs, turned into almost two hours. It took about a minute to connect the pulley to the spring. Just unscrew the bolt, pass it through the spring and you are done. The nice thing about that step is that you can do it standing on the floor. It was the other end that was a real pain. Instead of having a hook that you can pass through the hole in the holding bracket, there are three painted coils that you somehow have to part and insert into the hole. Up on the ladder, next to the ceiling with little space and no way to get your hands in, I labored and labored with a screw driver and needlenose pliers to separate the one coil and thread it through the hole.What a waste of time and effort! If I had known what was involved, I would have bought a simple bracket similar to the pulley bracket, passed it through the spring and hole, attached the nut and I would have been done. Such a bracket should have been included with the spring, same as the safety cable is included. Once that process has been simplified, then the spring is an easy 5 star. July 13, 2015
