Torsion Springs

At American Garage Door Supply, we can help make overhead garage door repairs even easier with our full line of garage door torsion springs. We have in-stock, standard or high-cycle, precision manufactured garage door torsion springs in a multitude of sizes and materials types for anyone looking to repair their garage door. Did you know that torsion springs account for over 95% of the lift that is needed to raise a garage door? Because of this continual stress, torsion springs typically only last for 12,000- 15,000 cycles from the original door producer.

With our easy-to-use torsion spring selection tool below, you can find the spring you need quickly and/or accurately upgrade to a spring with more cycles.

For each individual spring, we list the Inch Pounds Per Turn (IPPT) and # of turns to help you ensure that you have the correct direct replacement torsion spring. This information also will help you or determine which spring(s) will allow you to upgrade to additional cycles and more years of safe, dependable and well-balanced operation.

how to measure a garage door torsion spring

Things to Know about Torsion Springs:

      • Torsion springs must be measured while unwound or in a relaxed state or your dimensions will be incorrect.
      • To match your previous size exactly, you will need to measure the wire size, the inside diameter, and the length.
      • The length doesn't have to be completely precise (anything within a half inch will be fine)
      • The wire size and inside diameter are critical, this is where most mistakes are made
      • The number of turns is based on the height of the door and the size cable drums that you have (the rule for 7' doors is 7.5 turns and 8' doors is 8.5 turns and adjust from there)
      • The direction of the wind on the spring is opposite the side that it goes on (ex: the left wound spring is installed on the right hand side of the door, as your standing inside your garage looking out)
      • * Please measure twice!! Torsion Springs are Non-Returnable*
      • *1-3/4", 2" and many 2-5/8" oil-tempered and galvanized wire i.d's typically ship the same day if ordered by noon cdt. Please allow 48-72 hours processing time for other sizes and types.
