EZ-SET® TORSION SPRING KEY FEATURES

  • Saves time and money. Lets you easily and safely install heavy-duty torsion springs.
  • Eliminates the difficult and dangerous manual winding process used in conventional torsion spring installations.
  • Adjust spring tension in seconds using a power drill.
  • Galvanized springs are cleaner, more attractive and can last up to 50% longer than oil tempered springs.
  • User-friendly 45º drill input angle typically allows do-it-yourselfers to stand safely on the floor to wind and adjust springs.
  • Die cast aluminum drums (not plastic) provide exceptional durability and ensure long life.

Ideal Door® strongly recommends that a professional garage door installer remove existing torsion springs.
