Topic: Measuring your Garage Door Torsion Springs - Length
This article is for those carrying out a Spring Replacement Moreno Valley and want to know the length of there garage door springs. You need to find out the length of the unwound spring, but you don't need to displace the spring to compute the length with help of Spring Replacement Moreno Valley.
If your torsion spring is complete and unwound, simply measure the length of the spring. Compute from the first spiral on one end of the spring to the last spiral on the other end of the spring. Do not take account of the cones themselves in your measurement, but take account of the coils that are on the cone.
Your head should be at a distance that is about 1 feet from the spring and always in front of the winding cone facing towards the spring. When you take out the old spring don’t just place it on the floor near the ladder because you can step on it and get injured, you should place it on the floor in a place far from where you will be moving around to prevent you or the other people working with you from having an accident. The cables normally are the ones that help lift the garage door by the force of the torsion spring starting from the bottom part of the garage and moving it upward, the more they move the lighter the garage door gets as it gets on the horizontal pane aligned to the ceiling and once it is there it don’t have to be lifted anymore.
