Extension Springs from North Shore Commercial Door counterbalance the weight of an 8 foot tall overhead door to make opening and closing safer and easier. Extension springs install with a heavy duty S-Hook to the stationary brackets that hang horizontal tracks from the ceiling, while the other end of the spring is connected to a safety cable-and-pulley assembly installed on the garage door. As the torsion springs, cables, and cable drums open the door, the springs retract to help the garage door opener lift the door upwards onto the horizontal tracks. As the door closes the springs extend to lighten the load of the door and allow it to lower slowly. When in the open position, the initial spring tension holds the door in place on the horizontal tracks. Garage Door Extension Springs are color coded by door weights ranging from 40 pound doors to 380 pound doors.

Determine the door weight and door height: 1. The pull weight of an extension spring is determined by the color code found on the end of the spring. See Chart Below. 2. Measure door the height. 3. Springs are only sold in pairs. If you cannot determine the color code, it will be necessary to weigh the door. To Weigh Your Door: 1. Raise door completely. Disconnect power and lifting arm of garage door opener. 2. Fasten "C" clamps or vice grips under bottom rollers to retain door. With tension completely off extension springs, disconnect springs from track support. 3. Remove "C" clamps or vice grips and lower door by hand. Note that entire weight of door, which could exceed several hundred pounds, has to be lowered slowly by hand so more than one person is needed. 4. Set bathroom scale to zero and place under center of door and record door weight. 5. If door weight exceeds capacity of the scale, use 2 bathroom scales. Add a 2 x 4 with one end on one scale and the other on a second scale with the door perpendicular to the 2 x 4. Add the respective weight from each scale together to get the total weight of the garage door. DASMA Spring Color Codes: EXTENSION SPRINGS:
