The four items required to purchase the correct replacement torsion spring:
#1 Wire Size
#2 Inside Diameter
#3 Length of spring
#4 Wind of spring (Right or left wound)
A spring’s wire size can be determined by several different tools or techniques. Use of a caliper, micrometer, or wire gauge are common ways to determine a spring’s wire size. If none of these tools are available, simply measure ten coils of wire to the nearest 1/16th of an inch, and refer to the Spring Wire Chart. The spring must be tightly compressed, with no gaps. It’s also a good idea to measure twenty coils as a double check.
Measure the inside diameter to the nearest 1/16th of an inch. In most cases, the cones inserted in each end of the spring will have a manufacturers name (OHD or Raynor, etc.) which will give a clue toward the proper identity. The chart on the right shows common ID’s used by various manufacturers. If no manufacturers name is evident, usually a part number on the cone will indicate the inside diameter: 134 or 175 = 1 3/4" ID 258 or 263 = 2 5/8" ID 375 or 334 = 3 3/4" ID
LENGTH OF SPRING:
Measure spring length with the spring in its unwound state. In the case of a distorted or broken spring, simply count the total number of coils and multiply by the wire size. 120 coils x .250 wire = 30" 120 coils x .375 wire = 45"
RIGHT OR LEFT HAND WOUND:
To ensure the correct wind, please refer to the Winding Chart below. Please remember the side of the door a spring is located on does not indicate the wind of the spring. Most winding cones are color coded for hand identification. Right hand wound springs should have red winding cones. Left hand wound springs should have black winding cones.

QUESTION: The unwound length is 23", but the wound length is 25.5", is this normal? by Ron B 4/10/2014
ANSWER: Yes it is by Tony A a
ANSWER: Yes. That sounds about right, depending on turns. Mine measure 28" unwound and 29.75" wound. Working well for over a year. by Erik G a
ANSWER: yes, when you installed and wound the torsion spring, you added more coils and each coil added to the length. if your spring was made from 1/4" diameter wire, and you needed to wind the spring 10 full turns to get the right lift tension for your door, you would have added 10 x 0.25" or 2.5" to the original length of the spring. by KELSEY B a
