How to Convert from Extension Springs to Garage Door Torsion Springs

Converting extension springs to torsion springs comes with a lot of benefits and Bob's Advance Garage Doors can do this for you efficiently. Most garage door fitters and owners prefer torsion springs because they are sturdier and last longer. Torsion springs also allow greater control and more movements. They Deploy of fewer parts and they are much safer during breaks. Extension springs may be preferred in some situations, for instance, when there is a lower headroom.

How to Remove Extension Springs

To avoid making mistakes or getting involved in accidents, we do recommend that you contact us to remove your extension springs and replace them with Torsion springs. In case you want to take this step in your own, you need to jam the garage door open, and the tension will disappear when the door is opened all the way. Disconnect the door opener ad if there is a safety cable, make sure it is removed before you go further. Remove the extension spring carefully and then close the door carefully. 

Installing the Torsion Spring

Once the extension springs have been removed you must install the torsion springs immediately. You must exercise extreme caution at this stage. Make sure the right tools and parts, if you can’t find relevant tools please contact us at Bob's Advance Garage Doors for garage door repair, replacement or installation services. 

Just before you begin, you should consider measuring the length of your spring, you can use a measuring tape for this and it will give you an idea the actual size of springs you need to install. Gently place a vise grip on the vertical track, some few inches above one of the door rollers. This step is a security step to protect you from harm just in case you make a mistake. 

Make sure the motor and all other electrical systems are unplugged when installing the spring torsion. Make sure you wear some thick gloves alongside some protective eyewear and use a sturdy ladder that will support your frame when working on the garage door. 

Though the entire task can be handled by a single individual it makes sense if you can get a family member, friend or neighbor to support your task.
