How to Measure Your Current Garage Door Spring

Step #1 Determine the Wire Size.
Measure the length of 10 coils and then measure the length of 20 coils. Using the chart below, determine the wire size of your old springs. (Example: 10 coils measure 2 1/2” and 20 coils measure 5” then the diameter of your spring is .250)

Step #2 Measure the inside diameter (ID) of the spring.
1 -3/4” and 2” are the most sizes. 

Step #3 Measure the length of the UNWOUND coils of your spring.
Do not measure the end caps (cones) of the springs. If your garage doors has left and right wound springs, measure both, as they may be different. If the spring is broken measure each piece and add the measurments together to get the length. If it is still in one piece it will need to be unwound and be completely relaxed to get the proper measurment.

Step #4 Determine if your spring is LEFT WOUND or RIGHT WOUND. (Only needed if ordering a single spring)
To ensure the correct wind, please see the winding chart below. 
Left wind torsion springs have the wire ending on the left when viewed from the end of the spring.
 
NOTE: The side of the door where the spring is located does not indicate the wind of the spring. Most winding cones are color-coded for easy identification. Right wound springs (RW) should have the red winding cone mounted on the left side of the door with the RED winding cone pointing to the LEFT. Left wound springs (LW) should have the black winding cone mounted on the right side of the door with the BLACK winding cone pointing to the RIGHT.

 

 

WARNING: Never use screwdrivers or other substitutes for winding bars. Stand to the side of the bars and make sure to insert the bar all the way into the hole.
