Standard garage door springs can endure approximately 10,000 open-close cycles, depending on the springs and usage. At North Shore Commercial Door, we let you decide whether you want standard garage door torsion springs or upgraded springs good for 25,000 cycles (converted cycles range +/- 4K cycles). We also offer customized springs in any size that you need, up to 39 inches in length.
When ordering your garage door torsion spring replacements, keep in mind that it’s best to replace both springs even if only one is broken
. Since the springs are designed to work for a predetermined number of cycles, you’ll save time and money by replacing both whenever a spring breaks.

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
If you order 1-19/32" id the spring. they do not come with the cones. you have to reuse your old cones and this means that you have a crawford door spring. these are very uncommon so be sure to double check your measurements
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: How do you calculate the ID of the spring needed? by None N 10/28/2016
ANSWER: Measure the OD of spring 2 places. then determine the spring wire size, subtract double the wire size from the spring OD + Spring ID by Richard S a
ANSWER: The spring that needs to be replaced will be stamped with the ID on the winding cone.<br />a 175 or 134 stamp equals one and three quarters, 1 and 3/4 inch inner diameter.<br />334 equals 3 and 3/4. Order your spring with the same ID.<br />Hope this helps.<br />p.s. order the winding bars to help with installation by Ronny G a
ANSWER: Springs come in standard sizes. I removed my damaged spring and measured the inside diameter of the uncoiled spring with a tape measure. Then I went to my suppliers web site and picked the ID that was closest to what I measured. It should be pretty obvious which one you need. Also, the wire size can be determined by the color code on the spring. Length of spring should also be measured uncoiled. by Michael L a
