Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - Dual Spring, 81" Wide - ERS120D81

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (53 Customer Reviews)

The mounting plates are adjustable so there adjusted to fit my Pace 16' trailer perfectly. I had to install the cable pulleys backwards from what the directions called for and with the set screws facing the outside walls as well. I installed mine with the door closed not open against what the directions say as well. When you put some tension of the springs with the door closed you must stretch out the springs some before using the set screws. If the springs are not stretched out some the door will barely open and stop because the springs will have to room to turn and expand. The real trick is getting the cables wound up even and tightly. I needed my parts ASAP so I paid next day air which was very cheap for such a large part. 190413

First off, Deborah was awesome to deal with and had the ramp door spring shipped super fast. Thank you! I had never installed a torsion spring and this one took me two hours, including removal of the old one off a Pace cargo trailer. You might need to cut off part of the tube ends to fit your application. I put a grinding wheel on my skilsaw and chopped off 3 inches from each end. I used my existing mounts on the header and so I removed the ones on the new spring assembly...4 bolts. The mounting plates on the assembly are easy to slide to fit my application. Installation onto the header was very quick and easy. Again, four bolts that are a bit soft and easy to strip...I used my existing hardened bolts that were exact match in every respect...only harder alloy. The cables came next. I suggest using existing hardware if it's in good shape. The provided pins and cotter pin mount left too much slop at the ramp. Good bolts and a good locking nut was what I used and allowed for plenty of relaxed movement without compressing the eye of the cable end. Vise grips come in handy when rolling the cable on the drums as you'll want to keep the bar assembly from moving while loosening the drums to roll up the slack of the cables...tighten the two set bolts on each drum and you're ready to start winding the springs. Make sure the BLACK drum is mounted to your left while looking out from inside the trailer or the entire assembly will need to be flipped. I used some rebar for winding rods and ground them down a touch to fit easily inside the cavities of the spring winder. This worked well for me, but the proper winding rods are no doubt safer and should be used or simply get a professional garage door company to do the winding part and balancing for safety reasons. Once wound according to the instructions, lock the set bolts onto the rod and you can remove the winding rods. I used the top of my trailer to help hold the rod while tightening the set bolts...all the while holding another rod in the cavity for safety. From there, you will want to readjust your drums on the cables to get an equal amount of tension on each cable. One cable will likely be a lot tighter while the other relaxed upon rasing the ramp. With the door up and closed, loosen the drum set bolts on the LOOSE cable drum and spin it to get a tighter cable and lock the bolts back into place. Raise and lower the door a time or two and go back into the trailer with the door closed and readjust the drum that has cable slack until they are fairly equal. That was it and other than the appeals for safety around the entire process, it was easy to do. Unless you are used to working around stuff like this, I think having a garage door company wind the springs and adjust the drums would be money well spent to avoid any potential injuries. I doubt it would cost much because that part goes pretty quickly and they would have the experience to do it in about 15 minutes or so. 128509

Directions can be a little confusing, since I installed this on a she door, not a enclosed trailer. Left and right are painted and all was clear except on which way cable winds on drums, according to rep you wind it thru front unlike a garage door. Called to confirm because drums are labeled r and l but are reversed as your installing it,which prompted a call call. 506038


Comments

Thanks for the follow up Brandon. This system is set up so that when you are in the trailer or shed in your case looking out of the down door, the end with the black cable drum and the red winding cone should be on your left. If you are not comfortable or experienced with the installation of torsion springs, it is highly recommended that a local garage door company complete the installation.

Exactly what it says it is. Looks like a nice piece. Easy installation. Best deal on the internet. I searched for probably hours trying to find a better deal and you wont. They didnt have it in stock but ended up shipping it straight to me and I had it before they thought I would. Great Service. Very easy to work with. Will always come here and look for future trailer parts. 487279

Yes, I know it is recommended for personnel whom have utilized a torsion spring before, but I am definitely on the stubborn side. Before I could contact my local garage door guy, I pulled this out of the box to see if I needed to make a modification. So, I shortened the bar. I then noticed that the old one had to come down. Then I happened to notice that the placement of the plate almost lined up to the old one. Two minutes later, I was too far in the installation to not finish this job myself. Total time it took me was 1hr45min. 15 of those minutes were spent unwinding the cables because I didn't read the directions to put it on with the ramp down. Other than that, it was a breeze. Customer service was also the most amazing experience ever. I called to make sure I was ordering the right part from Pace and they informed me that my trailer was to old and to go to a recommended dealer 30 minutes away. etrailers crack staff told me to go out and measure my trailer twice, to make sure it would fit. Voila, 2 minutes later, i knew I had the right part. 480071

I reinforced the rear ramp of my aluminum trailer and needed a bigger torsion spring set to compensate for the extra weight. The information I found on etrailer.com made it easy to choose exactly what I wanted. The best part was the shipping speed. I ordered it Monday and received it by Wednesday. Not only was it cheaper than the local trailer supply it was quicker. Easy to install and works like a charm. 338107

I ordered the assist ramp lift because my ramp door was too heavy for me to lift by myself. After installing the assist lift correctly a 12 year old can lift the ramp door using only one hand. I recommend this product and the price is very reasonable for what you get with this company. 337911

Good product for the price. Hard to adjust initially and it constantly needs adjusting. The spring tension loosens up after about a dozen cycles. It does work good and the quality of the rest of the assembly is good. Would buy the product again. 335493

Product came in a timely matter through UPS. Installed it with no problem at all but you MUST read the instructions first so that you know what you're doing. Turned 38 quarter turns and then a few more (4) after that. Not sure if I should do a few more turns because the ramp door still takes two hands to close. 330952

This enclosed trailer door ramp spring pulley system is great. It is so smooth unlike the one that came wiyh my pace American trailer. Doesn't grind or squeek. Does exactly what it is supposed to for an outstanding price! Trust me, I did the research. I had to install by myself and it wasn't bad at all. Should have read the directions first so I had it turned around the wrong way. Lol. But it was a 2 minute fix to get back on track. I really am glad I found this. Definitely would recommend. 232092

Do you have a question about this Enclosed Trailer Part?


  • Ramp Springs Compatible With 1982 Circle J 2-Horse Trailer
  • I have a couple solutions for you, but we don't carry the exact springs you are referring to. I recommend the Ramp Spring - 2K Torque for 1-1/2" Shaft - Right Hand # RS16933RH and Left Hand # RS16933LH. These springs are 11 inches long and have a 1-1/2 inch shaft and are 2-1/2 inches wide. The inner diameter of the coil is 1-1/2 inches. Another option is to use the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - Dual Spring, 81" Wide # ERS120D81. I've attached a photo with all of the measurements...

  • Recommended Gate/Ramp Assist and Hinge for Trailer Build
  • The 2K Torque Ramp Spring # RS16933RH is an industrial strength spring. It is designed for up to 90 degrees of deflection, but most people by hand can cause no deflection at all. It is designed to be used with the LH # RS16933LH, and is for heavy ramps or doors like in the attached photo. I would assume it is too strong for your application based on your wording. You may want to consider a different style spring like the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - Dual Spring, 81" Wide # ERS120D81...

  • Recommended Ramp Torsion Spring for 82-Inch Wide Enclosed Trailer
  • The best size of trailer ramp spring for your trailer is going to be the 81-inch dual torsion spring # ERS120D81. This dimension is the end-to-end length as you'll see in the video. This unit consists of two torsion springs on one shaft and it has a capacity of 120-lbs. This spring can be bolted or welded to the trailer header and it comes complete with dual cables and hardware. Please note that this spring is intended to be installed by someone who has experience with torsions springs....

  • Recommended Ramp Door Spring for 7 Foot Wide Ramp
  • For your 7 foot wide ramp door, I recommend the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - Dual Spring, 81" Wide # ERS120D81. This will give you a dual spring assembly capable of lifting 120 lbs, so you would need to give a little assistance in raising and lowering. Another option is to use the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - Dual, 96" Wide # ERS160D96 which you will cut to length and has a capacity of 160 lbs.

  • 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...

  • Choosing the Correct Ramp Springs for Enclosed Cargo Trailer
  • The springs you mentioned are designed for use on ramps that you'd typically see on a heavy equipment trailer. They're way too stiff to be used on a trailer door. The correct springs for your application will depend on what you are using the ramp for. The Ramp Springs you are asking about are best used for heavyweight steel doors on a horse trailer or for an enclosed car trailer. If one man can lift the ramp, a more lightweight option like a torsion spring would be a better option. We...

  • Recommended Ramp Door Spring for 8 Foot Wide Enclosed Trailer
  • You'll want to choose a spring that's the same width as the ramp door. I'm afraid that the # ERS120D81 you mentioned would be too narrow. You'd want to use # ERS160D96, which is 96 inches wide. You'll have to take about 2 inches off each side of the pipe, but this would be your best bet. We HIGHLY recommend having the spring installed by somebody who's experienced with torsion springs. Tensioning the spring is a dangerous job that shouldn't be undertaken by somebody who's not familiar...

  • Replacement Torsion Spring Cables for Enclosed Trailer

The installation instructions for this product are recommended for individuals who have experience winding torsion springs. If you have not worked with a torsion spring system before, we recommend contacting a local garage door company to install this system.

For that you would want the Ramp Spring - 2K Torque for 1-1/2" Shaft - RH # RS16933RH or # RS16933LH. Or we have ramp springs like the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - Dual, 81" Wide # ERS120D81, this spring installs like a garage door spring.

With your rear ramp door being 66 inches wide, this ramp spring would work for your trailer. The weight capacity is 120 pounds.

Your best bet would be to use a ramp spring like what you're already using, like part # ERS120D81. Installation of springs like these can be extremely dangerous, due to the tension stored in the spring. If you...
