Video Transcript for M-3 Enclosed Trailer Parts ERS160D96 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number ERS160D96. This is an Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring from M-3 Enclosed Trailer Parts. The ramp door spring is designed for enclosed trailers. This system's going to feature a dual drum, so you can see that you have one up here and then one here at the rear, as well as a dual cable system. That's just going to prevent the ramp door from free falling in the even that one of the cables would be accidentally cut. It's also going to feature a universal mounting bracket.

It's going to have two holes on it. The diameter of each one of those holes is going to measure 3/8 inch, so that's going to allow you to be able to bolt the spring to the rear header. Welding the bracket is also an option. It's going to include all the mounting hardware necessary for installation except for the mounting bolts, so you will need to purchase those separately if you don't already have them. The length of this is going to measure 96 inches, and if we measure from the center of the bolt hole here on the mounting block to the center at the same point on the opposite side, that span in between is going to give us a measurement of 77 1/4 inch. Please keep in mind that the installation instructions for this product are recommended for people who have experience winding torsion springs. If you have not worked with that kind of system before, then we recommend contacting a local garage door company to install this system for you.

That's going to do it for our review of part number ERS160D96. This is the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring from M-3 Enclosed Trailer Parts. .

I've installed about five door springs so I have the process down. it's good to leave extra pipe when you cut it down to size. This leaves wiggle room for additional adjustment. You need to watch the cable angle when the door is closed. It should be as close to perpendicular the wheel as possible. If there is much angle it can rub on the ribs on the winding wheel and damage the cable. My new trailer from Cargo Mate/Continental was improperly installed and they cut the pipe too short. I could not adjust the cable angle and it ate the cable. Check the cable with the door open as well to insure it's not too close to the door opening where it can rub. The Cargo Mate/Continental trailers have the ramp cable mounting tab constructed really far outward. This is really not ideal for the way spring kits are designed. It really should be inwards about 1/2" more. This causes you to really need to do an installation with perfect leeway or the cable will have too much would angle when the door is closed or it will rub on the ramp opening when the ramp is down. I find using a pair of Vice Grips is handy for getting the cable winding pulleys wound tightly to avoid having any slack when the door is closed. If you have any slack the cable can bind up and ruin the cable. I used two old wheel barrow axles to make winding rods. No place I know of will sell the winding rods. When winding the springs stand to the side of the rods so if something goes wrong you are not in the path of where a rod could be thrown. My door closer called for winding ten times but nine actually worked perfectly. Ten spins of the spring caused the ramp door to float some. The dual spring sets up are much better because if one spring breaks the other will prevent the heavy ramp from free falling. Periodically check the cable when the door is closed for stretch. If the ramp is down on uneven ground and something heavy is loaded it can cause one cable to become out of adjustment where it needs to be tightened. 396650

Thanks so much Ashley for the great job you did getting that product out during the Christmas season. I did the installation today ,I just finished it. All I can say is if you can follow directions and read it's very easy to install. I found the product to be as good as the OEM. I will attach pictures to show you installation, and so that you can rest your little mind that I included the safety straps and closed . Thanks again for your help. 328639

Great price and fast shipping. Packaged well and has everything you need besides the wrenches rods to wind spring. Very easy to install. Since I had been brackets already it took me about 45 minutes including taking the old one off. And I already had the rods to wind spring up which is a must. Thanks. 381769

Ordered a new pulley system for the trailer door. Arrived, in perfect condition and on time, actually a little earlier than I expected. Price was best price I could find and the part is a good quality part. Very Very Happy with this purchase and the whole experience. Will advise family and friends about etrailer for any of their trailer needs. Also, all the folks I spoke to were knowledgeable, helpful, and genuinely nice. Thanks for the part, quickly. You have definitely won my business for any trailer parts needs. 397463

I didn't realize how much tension my old spring had lost until I installed this new one. My ramp door is heavier than most because I had to add a 2' flap for my 10' long custom. It was a strain to raise my ramp door before, but now I can raise it with one hand and have to hold onto the handle to keep it from slamming shut. After 1 year, it still as strong as when installed. This is a top quality spring and the included instructions made installation easy. I would and have recommended this spring to friends . 369464

I installed the dual spring assist for my ramp door and I am very pleased as I have a bad back and was wondering how much longer I would be able to keep hauling my collector car. I live in a remote forest area and can't drive it without destroying all the work I have done to it. My trailer is older but it works well for me. Now I plan on updating the brakes and hubs next. I updated the lights with LED's and suggest everyone to do the same. Thanks, Don Parry 442461

Good product. Well packaged. Arrived very quickly. But came missing the hardware set. After a little back and forth with etrailer I was sent the missing hardware at no charge. They took care of the problem and for that I commend etrailer. The 5 Stars here are for how well etailer handled this issue. I would have demoted M-3 (the manufacturer) for mispacking the set, but that's not the fault of the seller. Thanks etrailer for good customer service. 310145

Removal and Installation of this unit took 1hr. 20 minutes with no problems at all. The directions that came with the unit were very easy to understand. Going from a single spring to a dual spring makes all the difference in the world, one hand operation...very easy. Shipping was very fast. Very pleased with the service and product from E-trailer, i'll be shopping for all my trailer needs at E-trailer from now on. 330955

I needed this part for one of my maintenance crew trailers that runs daily. I was very impressed with how quick I received the new spring assembly, and so were my guys that had to lift the heavy door for a few days. The installation and instructions were easy to follow and the price was very reasonable. I now have a company to go to for all of my trailer needs. Thank you etrailer.com ! 429786

Recently purchased this trailer ramp dual spring to replace my single spring. The original spring roller from factory snapped. Cut to fit it to 75 inches. Perfect replacement. Instructions very detailed and right on. Install time with spring adjustments 1 hour. Delivery was fast and product was priced competitively. Very happy. And dual springs just make more sense. 257503

After a year of wear and tear, working perfectly. Remember oil the springs at least monthly

The ramp door on our toyhauler was so extremely heavy to lift or lower. We removed the coil springs mounted at the hinges and install this lift system. Now my 7 year old grandson can raise and lower the door. It took about 2 hours to install. 302961

Do you have a question about this Enclosed Trailer Part?


  • Choosing/Sizing the Correct Trailer Ramp Spring for a Ramp Door
  • When selecting ramp springs for a trailer ramp, you will want to know the diameter of your hinge pin and how much space you have available in the hinge. A typical horse trailer or utility trailer ramp uses 3/4 inch hinge pins and would require two ramp springs with a 3/4 inch inner diameter. The ramp springs that we carry fit 1-1/2 inch diameter hinge pins and are designed for use with heavy-duty steel ramps like those on equipment trailers or car haulers. The spring slips over the...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Ramp Door Is Hard to Open and Close, Do the Torsion Springs Need to Be Replaced
  • It could be that the springs are worn out and need to be replaced with either new springs or a new system such as # ERS160D96. Inspecting, working on, and/or installing these systems is not something you would want to do yourself because they can be dangerous (the springs are under a lot of tension). I recommend having a garage door company take a look at it to determine if anything can be done to fix the existing system or if a new system is needed.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Can a Pace Trailer Ramp Be Adjusted to Open Easier After the Torsion Ramp Spring Cable Breaks
  • Since your Pace trailer was using an Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring, like # ERS160D96, if you want the spring to function again you will need to have a qualified professional work on it, one with experience with torsion springs (like a garage door company). Without the cable and spring in good working order, the ramp will never operate as easily as it did before. That is unless you repair the old spring or install a new one. I have included a link to our springs. You may be able to use...

You could replace the hinge type springs with an enclosed ramp spring system such as # ERS120D81 at 81 inches wide and 120 pound capacity but if something is bent then it will still have the same issues. We also have the enclosed springs in different sizes: # ERS160D96 is 96 inches wide, 160 pound capacity # ERS80S66 is 66 inches wide, 80 pound capacity # ERS80S96...

  • Ramp Assist Recommendation for Toy Hauler Trailer
  • The ramp spring that we have that would be the closest to what you have is the part # ERS160D96 that measures 96 inches from end to end and could be trimmed down if necessary. The mounting brackets are 77-1/4 inches apart. 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.

  • The M3 Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring, part # ERS160D96 offers a 160 lb capacity, and is 96 inches long, and would be sufficient for the weight of your door. Depending on the width of your trailer, this might be a good choice for you. Be aware that the installation should be undertaken by professionals that have experience installing torsion springs. Because of the tension on the springs, a mishap could be disastrous. The spring you referred to only has an 80 lb capacity, and would...

  • 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.

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

  • Could # ERS80S66 Ramp Door Spring Be Cut Down for Use on a 5 ft Wide Enclosed Trailer
  • The whole assembly (96 inches wide) would be too long to trim down and still fit. I'd recommend going with a single spring like # ERS80S66, whch can be trimmed down to 45 inches long. The spring has a capacity of 80 lbs. If that's not enough capacity you could use two of them in tandem with one mounted above the other on the door header. We strongly recommend having a professional overhead door technician install the spring for you. The spring needs to be tensioned, and if it lets loose...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Jack Recommendation for a Small 6 by 12 Utility Trailer
  • For a small trailer like what you have the Pro Series Snap-Ring Swivel Marine Jack # PSEJ10000101 would do well. This jack can fit trailers with up to 3 by 5 inch frames and has a 1,000 capacity which would be more than enough. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Highest Capacity Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring
  • The M-3 Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring # ERS160D96 referenced in your question is indeed the highest rated torsion spring we currently have available. This spring has a capacity of 160 pounds. Depending on the weight of your trailer ramp, you may just need to assist a bit with lifting the door after the spring is installed. I have included a short video review on this spring that you can also check out.

  • Would this work on an 84 wide ramp door in a 96 wide trailer?
  • I spoke with my contact at Redneck about the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring, part # ERS160D96 on your trailer. They told me that the pipe that the springs and cable assemblies are attached to can be cut down to work on your 84 inch door. If you decide you want the shorter ramp spring for enclosed trailers that part # is ERS120D81. The installation instructions for this product are recommended for individuals who have experience winding torsion springs. If you have not worked with...

  • Is M-3 Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring ERS160D96 Compatible with 90 x 96-Inch Toy Hauler Ramp/Door
  • The M-3 Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring # ERS160D96 uses cables that will be plenty long for your application on a ramp door that is 90-inches wide x 96-inches tall. That is precisely the type of trailer installation for which this item is intended. It will work for you so long as the ramp does not weigh more than 160-lbs. The main tube is 96-inches long but it can be cut down to fit your trailer width. It comes with mounting brackets to install it to the trailer header but hardware is...

  • Overhead Ramp Spring for Rear Door of 2005 Featherlite 1648 Snowmobile Trailer
  • The spring needed will depend on the inside width of the trailer and the weight of the door. I looked online found that the Featherlite 1648 is 8 feet 6 inches wide. I'd recommend the # ERS160D96 from M-3 Industries. The assembly is 8 foot long, and has a 160 lb capacity, which should work well for your trailer. Unless you have experience installing torsion springs, leave the installation of this spring to a professional.

  • 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.

  • Will 96 Inch Long Trailer Ramp Spring Work in a 119 Inch Opening
  • The 96 inch long ramp spring # ERS160D96 could work but you would have to use a longer shaft and make the necessary adjustments. This is not something the average person should attempt because torsion springs can be dangerous. We strongly advise professional installation and modification by a qualified garage door company..

  • Enclosed Trailer Door Spring Maintenance On 2013 Carry-On Patriot Trailer
  • The Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - Dual, 96" Wide # ERS160D96 has a spring capacity of 160 lbs. You will want to make sure you are within your capacity to keep springs from breaking. You should lubricate the springs with a penetrating oil like # L10444 once or twice a year just like you would garage door springs as well as the cable and rollers.
