Tips & Information on Ordering Extension Springs

This spring is designed for garage doors that are up to 7 feet tall.

To weigh your door:
  1. Raise the garage door to the fully open position. Be sure to disconnect your automatic garage door opener, if you have one.
  2. Use C-clamps or vice grips under bottom rollers to keep the door in the open position. With tension completely off extension springs, disconnect springs from track support.
  3. Place a bathroom scale under center of door.
  4. Remove C-clamps or vice grips and lower door by hand. Lower door slowly by hand onto the scale. This may require more than one person, doors are very heavy and may crash down if you cannot hold it.
  5. Record the weight of the door.
  6. If door weight exceeds capacity of the scale, use 2 bathroom scales and use a 2x4 with one end on one scale and the other on a second scale with the door perpendicular to the 2 x 4. Be sure to take into account how much the scale reads with the 2x4 on it and deduct from weight you end up with. Add the weight reading from both scales together to get the total weight of the garage door.

WARNING - Garage door springs, cables, brackets, and other hardware attached to the springs are under very high tension and, if handled improperly, can cause serious injury. Only a qualified professional or a mechanically experienced person should adjust them, but only by carefully following the manufacturer's instructions.

  • Hello, Is the price for GARAGE DOOR EXTENSION SPRINGS FOR DOORS UP TO 7FT HIGH (part # ES-Extension) for a pair or each? Also is the measurement for the spring without the loops? Mine are just under 30\" with the loops.

    The price is for each spring. The length will vary based on the weight of your door. If you select the correct weight, you will get the spring replacement rated for that.

  • I have two Wayne dalton garage doors. Installed about 25 years ago. Both doors are metal and weigh 88lbs each. They are 8\' high by 9 wide. What size extension spring do I need?

    You would need springs for an 8ft high door - 90lb springs. We only sell ones for 7ft high.

  • Have a thermowayne 36 9ft by 6.5 ft garage door with extension springs with blue end coils. Don\'t know if light blue or dark blue. Broke one spring. Which color do I need?

    You will have to get the weight of your door to determine which spring is needed.

  • Are these springs for LiftMaster?

    Springs are not motor or door specific. They work based on door weight and what is already installed.

  • I have two Wayne Dalton 7\' single doors and my original springs have white ends. Do I need to go through the process of weighing my door or would it be appropriate to just order the white 110# springs? I\'m a little gun-shy here, because I purchased a set of Everbilt brand generic springs from Home Depot that were rated as 110# springs, but which turned out to be much too powerful for my door.

    If you have already tried buying them based on color and that didn't work out, I would recommend going to the trouble to weigh your door. 110lb springs are all going to be the same.

  • We have a model #2110 Liftmaster garage door opener and the spring on the right at top of door has broke in two, is this the correct part for our door? Don\'t know if its 7 or 8 ft , I think it\'s 8 but not sure.

    There is no way we could tell what your door height is. You can measure it with a measuring tape to determine the height.

  • We have a Wayne Mark 8000/8100 with rusty extension springs. How can we determine the proper replacement ?
