Garage door extension springs run along the door’s horizontal track and help to open and close your garage door as the springs stress and compress. Extension springs are manufactured specifically for the height of a garage door.

DIY Tip: Pay attention to the small stuff! Hinges structurally hold your garage door together and should be inspected for stress fractures and cracks every 6 months to ensure proper function and to prevent any damaged panels. Hinges are numbered according to where they are used on your door. For example on the hinges that hold your rollers or end hinges you should have a #1, #2, #3, #4, etc starting from the bottom panel going up. This gives you the proper spacing so that the door fits correctly between the track and the wood framework around your garage door opening. If the wrong hinges are used on the end hinges this will cause gaps on the side of the garage door or for the garage door to be rubbing the wood door jams. It also will not allow the door to raise smoothly and cause rollers to bind in the tracks. Anytime the door is binding this will cause damage over time to your panels and your opener.

Understanding the Numbers

Let’s say you’re looking at a seven-foot extension spring 25 x 42. This extension spring is used on a seven-foot garage door. It has a 25-inch relaxed or compressed length and a 42-inch stretched length, which is how far the spring should be stretched when the garage door is closed.

As you might expect, longer springs tend to be used on taller garage doors. If you use an extension spring with a different first number than the old one, you will need to adjust the cable length to achieve the necessary 10 percent of stretch when your door is open.

Don’t ever use a seven-foot extension spring for an eight-foot garage door. This forces the spring to stretch farther to allow the door to close, which creates extra tension, affects how the door is lifted and will greatly shorten the life of the spring.

Extension Springs – Weight Capacity

Garage door extension springs are manufactured to lift specific amounts of weight. Therefore each individual garage door will have a specific spring that works for it. If you have a 220 pound garage door then you will need two 220 pound extension springs. This is because the pulleys in the system reduce the weight that the springs can pull, so a 220 pound spring can only pull 110 pounds.

This is why two 100-pound extension springs are needed to lift a 100-pound garage door. Also, be sure to replace both extension springs at the same time in order to maintain the garage doors balance in ORLEANS county, VT.

Garage Door Extension Spring Color Coding

Garage door extension springs are color-coded to help you identify what type of lifting power and extension spring your garage door requires. Those color codes are as follows:

  • Tan: 100 pounds
  • White: 110 pounds
  • Green: 120 pounds
  • Yellow: 130 pounds
  • Blue: 140 pounds
  • Red: 150 pounds
  • Brown: 160 pounds
  • Orange: 170 pounds
  • Gold: 180 pounds
  • Light Blue: 190 pounds

***This pattern is repeated in 100 pound increments for various sizes. For example 110, 210, 310 pounds, etc. will all be color-coded with white paint.

Garage Door Safety Cables

When replacing your extension springs it a good idea to replace or add safety cables to your system. The safety cables run through your extension springs and will catch your garage door if something breaks like your springs or cables. When something does break it can be very dangerous if someone were around or underneath of the door. These safety cables can provide a safe environment for you and your family.
