Expert Answers about Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - Dual, 96" Wide - ERS160D96                                         Do you have a question about this Enclosed Trailer Parts?

  • Will Adding Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring ERS160D96 Double the Lifting Strength of My Trailer Door
  • Adding additional springs like the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring, # ERS160D96, will make it much easier to lift the trailer door on your enclosed trailer. However, if you were to add too many springs or too large of a system, the door may not stay down. Also, it is recommended that unless you have experience working with torsion springs, this system should be installed by a professional with torsion spring experience. If you determine that the double spring system is too large, then I would go

  • Availability of Enclosed Trailer Hinge Ramp Springs
  • I do believe we have the springs that you are looking for, but they are not part of a kit. We have a left, # RS16933LH, and a right, # RS16933RH. These springs are for a 1-1/2 inch diameter shaft. They will need to be welded into place with the two arms facing down and flat against the trailer and door surfaces. Each spring is rated for 2,000 pounds torque to help with lifting and lowering ramp doors on trailers.

  • Recommendation for Enclosed Trailer Ramp Springs for a 7 Foot by 14 Foot Enclosed Trailer
  • The system that will probably work best for you is the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - Dual, 81 Inches Wide, # ERS120D81. I went out to the warehouse and measured the distance between the mounting brackets. It is 64-1/2 inches from bolt hole center on one bracket to bolt hole center on the other bracket. The overall length is 81 inches. Since you have a 7 foot (84 inch) wide trailer, the 81 inch assembly should be a good fit. An assembly that measures 96 inches wide will be too long to fit the

  • Overhead Clearance Necessary to Install Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring # ERS160D96
  • According to our friends at Redneck Trailer Supply, the reel on the end of the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring, # ERS160D96 measures 5 inches in diameter, so you would need a bit more than 5 inches of room on the header above the rear door of your snowmobile trailer.

  • Can the 96 Inch Wide Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring be Trimmed to Fit a 92 Inch Wide Trailer
  • Yes you can cut the shaft on the 96 inch wide ramp spring, # ERS160D96, to fit your 92 inch wide trailer. The shaft is made of steel tubing so the proper saw or power saw blade would cut through it. Be sure to get a straight cut and file down the rough spots. Regarding installation, a professional with experience should install this in your trailer. Torsion springs are under a lot of tension and can be dangerous if you do not have experience with them. A garage door installer would be a good

  • When Does the Spring Tighten and Loosen on an Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring
  • On a torsion spring like that on # ERS160D96 when the door is opening downward the line is spooling out and the spring will get tighter. When the line is spooling in, closing the door, the spring will relax or get looser. As such if you have not worked with torsion springs before we strongly recommend having a professional perform the installation. A local over head door company should be able to help.

  • Can a Trailer Ramp Door Spring System Be Used on a 12 x 16 Foot Building
  • I do recommend the 96 inch system # ERS160D96. You can trim down the length some on each end for a better fit. The 160 pound capacity though is still under the approximate 200-250 pounds of your door so adding something to supplement this system would be needed to avoid damage to the system. The springs are longer than on the shorter systems, as is the main shaft. The actual product weight is going to be slightly different but the shipping weight is the same. It is also strongly advised to

  • Trailer Ramp Spring Recommendation for a 66 Inch Wide Door
  • As you mentioned, we do offer the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - 81 Inch Wide, # ERS120D81. This ramp spring needs a minimum of 56 inches in order for the drums and cables to wind properly. With your rear ramp door being 66 inches wide, this ramp spring would work for your trailer. The weight capacity is 120 pounds. I pulled the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - 96 Inch, # ERS160D96, from our warehouse and also spoke with my contact at M-3 to see if there was any way that this would work on you
