New Page & Software for EZ-Set Springs - DDM Garage Doors Blog

Posted August 4th, 2017 at 5:40 pm by Dan Musick

In order to help our customers find the correct springs for their garage doors, we just posted our revised page with new software to make it easier to purchase Clopay, Ideal, and Holmes EZ-SET Springs.

In the past, we encouraged do-it-yourselfers to measure the springs. However, because of gaps between the coils, the wire size was often difficult to determine. In addition, to the coatings on the springs. Therefore, it is recommended that you use the software to determine the wire size of the EZ-SET torsion springs.

Now customers can order by manufacturer and model number. In our most recent blog, we showed how to identify Clopay, Ideal, and Holmes door by model numbers on the stickers.

If you cannot find this information, we have an additional tab for selecting a spring or springs by door weight. Customers have found our instructions on how to weigh a garage door helpful. As well as, our YouTube video titled, “How To Weigh a Garage Door.”

If you have any questions, please contact us.

DELAYS AND INFLATION: COVID has interrupted global supply distribution chains resulting in unprecedented delays on incoming door and dock industry products. The result is limited availability of many products, two to three month delays on incoming shipments, and an inflationary rate of over 100% on most of our products, and 200-300% on many of our core products such as springs and cones.

SHIPPING CHANGES: Shipping times are currently not guaranteed, even on next day and second day shipments. Normal transit times do not apply. Shipping prices on items over 10 feet long have tripled in many cases.

SPRING WIRE AND CONE SHORTAGES: We currntly have a good inventory of 2" ID springs and cones. However, due to cone and wire shortages, we currently do not have cones for the residential 1 3/4" and 2 1/4" ID springs. For these sizes many customers are reusing their existing cones. If you need the larger inside diameter springs for commercial doors, there will be a one to two month delay on your order. If you are willing to wait two months for your springs, please note that in the comment section of your order. We deeply regret the hardships this will create for many of our customers.
