Spring Replacement

Replacing springs on a Trac-Rite Door is a job for a qualified door installer or experienced handyman. If in doubt, call a professional. Use our web site’s dealer locator to find a dealer in your area.

Springs should be replaced in pairs. Due to product improvements, the replacement springs that you order may vary in finish (most replacements have the EP3 coating) and size compared to the door’s original springs. Before searching our parts store for new springs, gather as much of the following information as possible:

  • Month and year of manufacture
  • Number of coils
  • Length of original spring
  • Inside diameter of original spring
  • Model of door (What model door do I have?)

When searching through the selection of springs on our web site, use the spring coil count, and inside diameter to refine your search. Note that the title for each spring indicates which model doors the spring may be used on. Click on the photo of one of the springs that matches your description so far, and review the detailed description and/or datasheet to  verify that the spring falls within the timeframe that your door was manufactured.
