To Properly Measure a Garage Door Torsion Spring

STEP 1: Determine Wind Direction
Look at the end of the spring to determine the wind direction. If the end of the spring points in the clockwise direction it is a left wound spring. If the end of the spring points in the counter-clockwise direction it is a right wound spring.


STEP 2: Measure Inside Diameter
Measure the inside diameter of your spring with a tape measure or caliper. Most common inside diameters are 1 3/4", 2", 2 5/8", 3 3/4" and 6"



Step 3: Determine Wire Size
WIRE SIZE: 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, you can easily measure how many coils are in 20 inches then divide the amount of coils into 20. (Example: 20 ÷ 80 = .250) or simply measure ten coils of wire to the nearest 1/16th of an inch, and refer to the spring chart below. Important: the spring must be tightly compressed with no gaps with no tension. It's also a good idea to measure twenty coils as a double check.

Step 4: Measure Length of Spring
Use a tape measure to measure the length of the spring to the nearest half of an inch. If the spring is broken measure both segments. Measure spring only, do not include length of winding and anchor cones.


For example: If you measure the length of 20 coils is 5", you may find the wire size on the Spring Wire Chart is .250. and when you measure the I.D (inside diameter) is 1 3/4 = 1.75, and the length of spring is 34. The size of broken spring will be .250-175-34
