Have you ever had the experience when your garage door refuses to open at some very inconvenient times? Or if they do finally open it feels like you’ve just played tug-of-war with a bison? Perhaps you need to take a look at your torsion spring. A what? You know the thing that makes it possible for your garage door to lift open every time you need it to. However you have to remember that it doesn’t stay like that forever. It gets broken too. After all, its estimated life is only 10, 000 cycles. So its service life is dependent on how many times your garage door is opened and closed every day. However, this figure can become pretty much lower if proper care is not observed when installing and using torsion spring kit.

Proper care in this context is discussed one by one in the sections that follow. Read closely, try to remember things listed there and most important of all, don’t jump to conclusions saying “I already know” that. Most of the time, it is the things that we thought we know that end up getting us into a lot of trouble.

But in case you are someone that’s qualifies as an expert, please don’t hesitate to share to us your knowledge. We would love to learn new things too.

For ordinary folks like me, read on. Who knows, what you learn here may come in handy in the future.




What is a Torsion spring kit?

A torsion spring kit is a type of steel spring that is mounted on garage doors. It has two types; one is single- spring, while the other has two springs. The torsion spring kit works on counter balance system involving a cable, roller brackets and a cable drum. You need a torsion kit spring if you want your garage door to open without doing it the Croods’s way-the hard way, which is by lifting it up yourself. A garage door can weigh as much as 140 pounds; it will not be a good idea to lift it.

How does it work?

Basically, the torsion spring kit is needed for your garage door to lift open and lower it gently despite the weight of the door! It absorbs most of the weight of the door with its counter balance mechanism. Its life depends on how many times your door opens and closes in a given day. It would be useful to have a another access door for you for other purposes such as getting the garden tools and whatever it is you keep in your garage whenever you need it.

To better understand how your garage door works with the torsion spring, take the time to learn it. Observe how the mechanism works. Nobody else can teach you any better but your door itself.

There is always time for everything, arrange your schedule to accommodate” your garage door lessons”. You will find that the more you know about these things the easier it gets for you to both maintain and repair or replace any broken parts of your torsion spring.

One spring or two springs?

Having a one spring door can sometimes cause problem in the future. The rate of wear and tear on the moving parts such as the cable is much higher in a one spring torsion kit. It would not cost more than $10 to convert from one spring to two springs. In the long run, it will be worth every penny. However, it is important to have the dimensions of all the parts of both kits the same for better function and longer service life.

However, having two springs is not an automatic insurance; the right stuff still needs to go with the right parts. Knowledge is a determining factor here too. So if your one to prefer a little D-I-Y every now and then, this is the one instance where knowledge is power. It pays to do your homework before you start bringing down your garage door.

There are occasions where a one spring door out lived the two springs. How is this so? That is because the one spring got everything right; from the dimension to the right alloy combination of the parts.

How to take care of your Torsion spring kit?

The standard for garage door industry is 10,000 cycles but often times this is not the case for most people. What we commonly refer to as “factory defect” is usually a case of “owner mistake” during installation. It is important then to get your dimensions right. When in doubt, never assume. Ask your supplier, nobody else can give you the best answer.

Meanwhile metal objects needs to be protected from rust, corrosion and even the elements. Regular spraying with silicone lubricants on your door’s moving parts will ensure smoother operation, protection from elements and dust build up as well as rust.

Know your spring

There are several spring types out there. Some break prematurely; others meet what they say on their labels. How is this so? That’s because different manufacturer’s use different types of alloys. Why they do this, is entirely beyond me but one of my guess is profit. Recently a lot of made in China springs suffered pre mature breakage. So buy springs that are made in the United States if you want to be sure. In fairness however, the aluminum alloy spring from China so far held up to scrutiny. So keep your fingers crossed if you have bought this aluminum alloy springs.

When making purchases, keep in mind this age old advice; the cheaper it looks, the more expensive it can get. This is because cheap products break easily and you must get another one. You only succeeded in spending more money instead.

If you are leaving in coastal areas, the salty environment will eat at your spring so buying galvanized springs will save you trouble and money.



How to get the right spring

First, let’s take a look at your door if it is unbalanced. An unbalanced garage door does the following:

  1. Do not stay up when open. It will fall on your head or your car’s hood. So you better watch out.
  2. Do not stay down when closed. It opens on its own in the middle of the night and scare the members of your house hold or worse, knock you out with an upper cut when you’re all dressed up for work.
  3. It does not stay in the middle.       The kids thought it was a new type of see-saw.

If your garage door does any one of this or all this, something is not right, and usually it’s the springs themselves. Start from there. If you don’t know what to do, follow this advice. First, your safety is the priority, yes that’s right. You are the priority, and not your garage door. Before you start working be sure to wear some protection; helmet, goggles, gloves, the whole works. Remember, the garage door can fall on your head anytime or knock you out with an uppercut.

The springs need to be replaced after some time; it can break or become too slack, or perhaps the size of it is not compatible with the weight of your door. To find the appropriate spring, you need to do the following:

  1. Measure the springs. Measure the springs in this manner: get the inside diameter, wire size, length, wind, and type of ends. 
  2. Weigh your door if you can, and get its height too. Remember, safety first. It’s not worth it if you get hurt. But if you insist on doing it yourself, use an analog bathroom scale. The lady of the house is sure to have one. Please watch your feet when you do this.
  3. Get the doors model number and contact your supplier. If you are not used to doing anything like this, I recommend this. The information you’re looking for could be found in the inside or sometimes in the side. But if the years made it unreadable, try the receipt or the paperwork it came with.


Now that you know these things about your garage door, you will not end up scratching your head and wonder why there’s a brand new dent on the hood of your car. At least you will be able to do something when garage door trouble comes. Or if you should call for help, you at least know whom to call and what to say.

These days, suppliers have a data bases where you just key in some information about what you need; whether , springs, cables, cones or the door itself, it will give you the information to aid you in choosing your purchase. For instance, you need a torsion spring, you just visit the supplier’s website and enter the measurements you made and immediately you got your answer. Just like that. All you need to do is find a supplier that is a perfect fit for you.

In order to order new springs, you will need to measure (as accurately as possible) your current spring(s) and find the:

1. Wire size

2. Inside diameter (90% of doors have a 2.0" inside diameter)

3. Spring length (how long each spring is)

4. Spring orientation if ordering just one spring (left wound or right wound). Generally, when looking from within the garage, if the spring is on the left side, it is right wound, and vice versa. It works as opposites, so if the spring is on the right side of the center when looking from inside your garage out to your door, it is left wound.

If you would like to convert from 1 spring to 2 springs, use this link after finding your current spring measurements:

**for maximum accuracy, measure springs  after releasing their tension (taking them off), but this is NOT required. 

RECOMMENDED: This video will help you measure your torsion springs - please watch it before ordering (5 minutes).


1. How to Measure for Wire Size

The only way to measure this accurately is to measure 10, 20, 30, and 40 coils and find a match on this chart. It is okay to round if you are very close.

Wire size is the most important measurement. This determines the strength of the spring. It is not recommended to manipulate this to try and get a longer life or stronger spring. If you'd like to upgrade your spring(s), you can add this to your cart:


2. How to Measure for Inside Diameter

It is very likely that, like 90% of Americans, you have a 2.00" inside diameter.

Please double check by measuring just the inside (interior) diameter of the spring. You can measure this while it's still attached.

3. How to Measure for Spring Length

Spring length is the most flexible measurement, but you should do your best to be within 1-2 inches.

The spring length may change slightly after years of use, weather, etc.

4. How to Determine Winding Orientation (left-wound or right-wound)

A general rule is that if the spring is marked with RED paint, then it is RIGHT wound.

Furthermore, if the spring is on the left side when looking from within the garage, it is RIGHT wound.

If you have a 2-spring system, you should replace both springs and you can skip this step.
