How to Assemble Garage Door Strut Kits

How to Install Garage Door Struts and Strut Kits

Garage door struts reinforce door sections, preventing them from bending or breaking. They also aid in the smooth opening and closing of the door. If the sections are not rigid, the garage door will bind as it opens and closes.

Struts for eight and nine-foot wide doors can ship by FedEx or UPS. Longer struts would need to ship over the road. The crating and shipping cost for a single 16' strut can cost $200-300. For this reason we have developed several garage door strut kits that allow you to purchase the shorter 8’-9’ struts and join them with a 32” strut. FedEx or UPS can ship these parts for the lower price.

Additional support is available in our Do-It-Yourself Garage Door Instruction Library.

Huge inventory of parts and torsion springs for same or next day shipping! Here you will find all you need in the most common sizes of 1 3/4," 2," 2 1/4," and 2 5/8" inside diameter springs. Please contact us for specialty springs such as TorqueMaster, EZ Set, self-Storage, and steel rolling door springs as many of these have been subject to supply chain shortages. Larger 3 3/4" and 6" inside diameter commercial and industrial springs may require a day or two to ship.

Shipping times and costs have changed. Normal transit times are currently not guaranteed, even on next day and second day shipments. Shipping prices on items over eight feet have more than tripled.
