Product Overview

This is a left hand wind torsion spring. In recent years most doors are being supplied with torsion springs located directly above the door and mounted to the header. Replacement will require the use of 2 winding rods, sold separately. To wind the torsion spring correctly you will need a clear understanding of wire size and handing. It is always best to replace both springs at the same time.

  • When dual spring installations are involved, it is important to correctly install both the LEFT & RIGHT WIND SPRINGS during the same job

  • Right hand wind springs are mounted to the left of center (as viewed from the inside the garage looking out)

Went to the website for the torsion spring. There is a ton of info there on how to id right & left wind. Also don’t rely on weight of the door, it’s the length and diameter of the existing spring. Just follow the removal:install instructions verbatum. Also utube as great videos.

how do i match a new spring with one im replacing ?

Asked by jay March 21, 2018

There are 3 dimensions to a garage door torsion spring: (1) Inside coil diameter (e.g., 1.75 inches or 2.0 inches, etc., a measurement often stamped on the hardware ring holding the spring on your original equipment). This is represented by the MIDDLE number of a standardized torsion spring designation. (2) the wire size, which can be interpolated by measuring the number of inches in length consumed by 20 coils (winds) of the spring (e.g., 4 and 1/8 inches, or 4 and 3/8 inches, measured to the closest 8th inch). Note that this is STANDARDIZED in the industry, and the number of inches in 20 coils can be used to look up the wire size in a standardized table. You will need the correct wire size to purchase the right spring strength. For example, 4 1/8 inches for 20 coils equals a wire size of .207, and 5 1/4 inches for 20 coils represents a wire size of .262. You can easily find this table online. The wire size is the first number in a standardized size designation for a torsion spring. (3) the length of the spring assembly from end to end (e.g., 22 inches, 26 inches, 36 inches, etc.). You can measure your old spring end to end with a tape measure to get this. This is the third number in the standardized designation. There is also a standard paint color marking for the spring. Search online for "DASMA Technical Data Sheet," which will provide official color codes for torsion springs based on wire size. This is just a confirmation / safety measure for a do-it-yourselfer which will tell you that you have measured everything correctly and picked the right spring. Your current spring should have a paint stripe on the ends which will, of course, match the color on the new springs you purchase. If it doesn't, you didn't purchase the right spring. DON'T mismatch the length, number of coils or inside dimensions versus your current springs or you will not be able to get your garage door to work. You might be tempted to get a bigger wire, longer spring, etc., thinking that the spring won't wear out as fast, but DON'T do it. The number of winds required to properly raise your door, and the weight of your door versus the tension / lift of the spring are all calibrated, so trying to get smarter than the original manufacturers by buying a bigger, stronger spring will just waste your time and money because they won't work and might even break your garage door, which will then be a really expensive repair. You could also have trouble getting your door to function properly, and if the mechanism raising a couple hundred pound door fails and your door slams shut, it could really cause some major damage or hurt someone. Also note that most garage technicians recommend replacing BOTH SPRINGS at the same time, since they will generally wear at the same rate, and you've already had one break. It is only a matter of (likely) a very short time before the other spring breaks on your door, and they are a lot of trouble to replace, so you don't want to have to do this a second time in short succession. Also note that the spring on the right side is a left wind and the spring on the left side is a right wind, but if you're replacing both springs, as you should, you won't have to worry about this until you get them both in hand and can put each one on the proper side with a simple observation of the windings. Finally, make sure you have TWO winding bars that fit the anchor cones of the spring, which generally are available for purchase at the same time from the vendor selling you the springs online. From home depot there are heavy steel rods that may work but you'll have to cut them to a manageable length. Matching winding bars are generally only +$10-15 anyway, so it is advisable to buy them together with the spring, and they are often included in the price regardless. You will need BOTH winding bars in order to hold the spring in place while you move one winding bar from a hole above to a hole below in the anchor cone as you put tension on the spring. There is a tremendous amount of force created by winding a garage door spring and it can be very dangerous, cracking a bone in your hand or arm, or even throwing a bar through the wall or ceiling (or other soft tissues!), should you mismanage the winding effort, so be very careful when tensioning the spring! If you get the right tension on your springs, your door should be easy to lift but shouldn't fly up quickly and slam into the stop at the top. Good luck!

You have a "right wind" spring pictured, as for the size and color, you will need to measure the wire itself and the diameter of the spring to match it up. According to HomeDepots listing on this spring, it is "Commonly Used In Most Recently Manufactured Garge Doors". There are plenty of guides online on how to remove and replace these, just choose your favorite. Good Luck! John

Yes but you may not need to torque it as much. There should be a guide at the home depot that will give you the specs and installation guidelines. I honestly would just buy the correct spring to be safe.

Spring torsion length is 24 can I change it to 32

Asked by Jun April 17, 2017

Answer

Thank you for your inquiry regarding this item from Prime-Line Products. For best results with your repair and hardware replacement project, we recommend that you “put in what you take out”. In other words, the replacement hardware should closely match the damaged hardware, matching all of the same specifications as much as possible. As an important safety precaution: all broken or malfunctioning hardware should be replaced with matching hardware, without any modifications. These garage door springs can cause serious injury if not handled and installed properly. If your door has a torsion spring (coiled around a tube or shaft above the garage door opening), we highly recommend that you do not attempt to replace, adjust or relieve tension on the spring, cable or drum yourself. Also, that you do not attempt to remove or loosen any bolts attaching bottom brackets, bearing plates or endplates, but rather to call a professional door service firm to prevent serious bodily injury. If attempting to replace the torsion springs yourself, it is important that the removal or adjustment of torsion springs is not attempted with any other tool other than the GD-52238. Failure to do so may result in personal injury or property damage. The winding rods (Item no. GD-52238) consist of two identical 1/2 in. x 16 in. rods which are used to wind and unwind the tension on torsion springs and are the only tools recommended for this purpose. Do not use on winding cones larger than 33/64" in diameter. For faster service, be sure to take advantage of the CHAT option located in the lower right-hand corner of your screen, where you can quickly be connected to a representative for assistance. Otherwise, you can contact the manufacturer directly with your questions regarding this item, or any other product manufactured by Prime-Line Products by calling their toll free number at (877) 649-9740, or by contacting them by email at prodtech@primeline.net
