Video Transcript for Ramp Springs Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at, and showing you how to install ramp springs for the 2000 pound torque rate for inch and a half shafts. The left hand side is part number RS16933LH, and for the right, you'll need part number RS16933RH.Now, these springs are designed to aid you in lowering and lifting these heavy ramps. If you don't have any springs installed, you know it can be quite a bit of a pain. As you're lowering your ramp down, you kind of have to be under it. You don't want to just let it drop .. Well, I guess you can, but you might cause damage to it, and vice versa.When you're trying to lift it up, you're going to lift up the entire weight.

With the springs installed, they've got a 2000 pound tension rating, so as we lower the gate, as we raise the gate, it's going to be much, much easier.Now, this is what I would call a medium/heavy duty utility type trailer. We'll also show you on a very heavy duty utility type trailer, the use of two of them for those much larger ramps, the triangulated style ramps. Those tend to be a lot heavier, so we'll show you that, as well.Just to give you an idea, however your ramp's held in place, you'll want to, of course, unsecure that, and then you'll see our ramp's going to come down much easier. It actually kind of floats there. We'll push that down.

That'll keep it closer to the ground. We can get our equipment on and off, then when it's time to shut them back up, much easier process than what you're probably used to, especially if you don't have springs, or if your current springs aren't in good working order.You can see our old spring. It's become worn, and it's not near as effective as it was. You see how that's pointing off, kind of in that rearward direction It just means it's been fatigued over time, so we're going to be able to replace it with a new spring. It's going to give us much more effect.Now, the left hand and right hand is going to determine which side of the pin you're going to be putting it on.

If you want it on the right side, you want a right hand spring, and if it's going on the left side, you're going to want your left hand spring.To ensure we get years of great service out of the ramp springs, they're made of a high quality alloy spring steel, so they're going to return to their original position for years and years.To ensure you have plenty of room, we're going to go over the specifications of the spring, just to give you an idea about the size. From outside of our spring to outside of our spring, we've got 2 1/2 inches. Inside and inside's going to be about and inch and a half. From the spring itself, to the end of each arm that sticks out, is going to be 4 inches, so you definitely want to keep that in mind, and make sure that you've got clearance for that, and also that, that spring will make contact with something within that 4 inch range.To begin your installation, you'll need to remove whatever's holding in your hinge pin. It's going to be the large inch and a half diameter pin that runs through here.

In our case, we've got a bolt and a nylon lock washer. We're going to use a 9/16 to get that removed.You also want to hang on to your hardware, because you're going to need this to put it back in. It keeps this pin from sliding in and out. You can see our old spring mounted here. We'll move our pin out, and the idea is to free that up. Now, this ramp's going to be very heavy, and when you pull that pin, it's going to want to fall down. You need somebody to give you a hand, or if you can handle it yourself, however you want to do it, just make sure, as you pull this pin, that, that doesn't fall down and hurt you.Now, we can remove that old spring, set it aside, and replace it with our new one. Now, we're going to be putting our spring on the other side. We've got an accommodation for one here or here, so it doesn't matter how you want to do it. Make sure you get it where you need it, though. Then, our gate hinge is going to go right in between there. As we install it, we can place that pin through.Now, as we replace our ramp onto the trailer, and install our pin, of course, we want to ensure that the pin passes through the middle of our spring, and we also want to make sure that the flange on the ramp goes in between the spring and the flange on our trailer.Now, to finish it up, we'll just reinstall the hardware that we removed to take that old one off.As we said, with these really heavy ramps, they look about the same as the other ones, but they're much thicker steel. It really is a problem, when it comes time to lower them. You're going to have to fight it. You're really going to have to put weight into it, and it can be slightly dangerous. If you have anything underneath there without steel toes on, you'll likely run into something. Same way, going up. Just make sure you get a good hold it.Then, you're putting yourself right underneath them, so if you we're to slip or your hand comes off, it can come back at you. Those springs are going to help us out a lot, with that situation.Now, just like before, we're pulling that pin out, although this time, we don't have any keepers to put it in, so we'll slide this one on, just like that, bring the pin in, a little further, we can get our other one put on.After we have our springs installed, there's a huge difference in the operation of our ramp. We'll go through that same process as before. You could see it actually hold my ramp there. At that point, we just need to press it down a little bit. That's going to make it much easier getting our equipment up and on it.Now, to raise it up, it takes a lot less effort, as well.Overall, our ramps are going to be much easier to use, but a big key is, they're also going to be much safer. That'll complete our look at the ramp springs.

Ramp Spring - 2K Torque for 1-1/2" Round Shaft - LH - RS16933LH

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (184 Customer Reviews)


These ramp springs really took the work out of raising and lowering my heavy 3 fold ramps needed for a more long and level approach to our 10 ton trailer. I always looked for help when needing to raise them, now I can almost do it with one hand. It took a little work installing them because the old system had to be rebuilt somewhat. I kept the same 1" pins and used a 1 1/16" ID X 1 1/2" OD sleeve for the springs to work on. They were well worth my time. I`d rate this an excellent product.

Still work great! They gave me a lot more flexability moving equipment without always looking for a hand or trying to raise them myself.
Bill R - 03/20/2018


I had to have 2 back surgeries, and I was not to pick up hardly any weight for a number of weeks. I had a neighbor help me install the ramp springs. After that I was able to lift the ramps with almost no effort at all. I am very glad I got the springs.


We installed spring and lowered ramp. Spring bent and did not assist on lifting ramp anymore. Very disappointed

The ramp spring is designed to be used with a 1 ½ round pipe not a square pipe which might cause the ramp spring to bind. You also may want to use more than one spring on heavier ramps.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 07/18/2018


Great products! But what really stood out to me was the feedback and customer service.


Very happy with how fast the delivery was. Keep up the good work, Etrailer!


Excellent service and parts. It was actually a pleasure doing business with etrailer. Thank you.


They were a b**** to put on but got her done by myself works great.


Unfortunately I am working on a return. I am happy with etrailer. I have been getting great responses nice people. The item want work unfortunately and doesn’t look like you carry the size I need.
Thank you


I was very impressed on the lifting pressure of these springs. The lift weight of my ramps were approximately 75 lb. I added 2 springs per ramp and now can lift a ramp with one finger, approximately 5 Lb. They were a very good addition to my 3 axel gooseneck trailer.


Exactly what I needed. Good price and it was shipped quickly.
Online descriptions were thourough.

Can someone tell me how to install trailer assist springs, please!

7h x 8.5w door with wt. of appx.100lbs. ?how many and what size helper springs will I need to install for appx.20-30lb.force to pick-up?
-- comment by: kim k - 08/13/2013


good product and fast


right springs at a great price


Very strong spring for a heavy ramp.


My gooseneck trailer has the extra wide ramps on it. Each ramp covers half the trailer. These ramp springs definitely help raise the ramps. I only wish the fingers (as I call them) were about 2 inches longer.


The springs that I bought save my back every time that I raise or lower my ramp. Fast shipping and, as always, excellent customer service from etrailer.


The existing spring on my fold up ramps were not enough to raise the ramp easily. I added this spring to the ramp and it works great.


Need two on each side… one is not enough


Exact replacement


My 16 ft mower trailer is loaded with tools from the shop rebuild so I have been having to use my 20 ft implement trailer to haul my sub compact tractor on when mowing the in-laws yard. The ramps are very heavy which was never a problem for occasional use but doing it multiple times a week was getting old so I went looking for a solution. These springs were easy to install and made all the difference in the world. The trailer is now much more user friendly. Wish I had bought them years ago.


They worked great for the set of ramps I built.


Two points of consideration, first the ramp springs worked great and make a world of difference when lifting my ramps. Second was the instructional video. Which made the install process simple and accurate.


Just what I Needed,

Thank you Very


Very much satisfy.


Great ramp helper springs!!


The parts exceeded our expectations and they will have a new coustomer for life, and I made sure I sent the coustomer all of your info for their future projects , thank you and as far as shipping we had them sent all the way here with standard shipping and they were here in 2 days. Great Working With You.

  • Dimensions and Lift Capacity of Ramp Spring # RS16933LH
    I contacted our representative at Redline about Ramp Spring, part # RS16933LH. He informed me that the overall length of the spring is approximately 10-1/2 Inches and the width of the spring is 3-3/4 Inches. The measurement from each ear to center of spring is about 5-1/4 Inches, and the spring is made to fit over 1-1/2 Inch bar. The metal rod that forms the spring is just under 1/2 Inch in diameter. I used photoshop to show the dimensions of Ramp Spring, part # RS16933LH, (see picture). For...

  • Ramp Spring Recommendation for 200 lb Door/Ramp on a 1-1/4 inch Shaft
    For a 200 lb door/ramp that is on a 1-1/4 inch shaft the part # RS16933LH and # RS16933RH would be a great choice. These ramps provide 2,000 lbs of torque which would be needed for a ramp that weighs as much as yours and is as long as yours. The spring is designed for a 1-1/2 inch shaft, but we have checked before and have been told that it will still work fine on a 1-1/4 inch shaft as well.

  • Does the Ramp Spring # RS16933LH Help Open or Close When being Used Trailer Door/Ramp
    Using your terminology, the spring closes as it is flexed when the door is lowering. The spring part # RS16933LH that you referenced is designed to apply torque to help lift a ramp door all the way up. If you check out the picture I attached you will see how it will look when installed with the ramp all the way up. As the ram would open the spring would flex which would apply torque on the door to make it feel lighter. You want the ramp shaft the spring is installed on to be as tight...

  • Installation Instructions for Redline Left Hand Ramp Spring # RS16933LH
    In addition to watching our video review I attached, to use this spring on your trailer you must have ramp hinge with a 1-1/2 inch diameter rod or pipe where the ramp meets the trailer. The spring slips over the rod with the tension of the spring against the ramp and trailer when the ramp is in the up position. The spring should not be welded to the ramp or trailer, the tension and the rod will hold the spring in place. Note that the Redline Ramp Spring # RS16933LH is a replacement spring...

  • How to Determine the Length of Cable to Use on an Enclosed Trailer Ramp Door
    If you lower the ramp door on the trailer you can determine where you would attach a cable. Measure from that point diagonally to the upper corner of the opening, same side, and you would need a cable at least that long. Or, you could measure the height of the opening (A) and the length of the door when opened (B). Then you would multiply (A x A) + (B x B) = C squared. So if the opening and the ramp were both 8 feet tall you would do 8 x 8 = 64 + 8 x 8 = 64 to get 128. Then you would take...

We do not currently have a ramp spring like this available that matches the 5/8 inch wire diameter that you mentioned.

  • Is 2K Rating for Redline Ramp Spring is Under a Load
    You are correct that the 2K rating of the Ramp Spring # RS16933LH is for when it has a load on it. I spoke with my contact at Redline about your question and they confirmed this. The inch/pound rating that you mentioned is what I found as well.

  • Availability of Trailer Ramp Springs to Fit 1-1/2 inch Diameter Shaft
    Since you have a 1-1/2 inch diameter shaft you would need the part # RS16933LH for the left hand side and then part # RS16933RH for the right hand side. These have plenty of torque to make lifting either of the ramps very easy.

  • Will the Ramp Spring # RS16933LH Make My Trailer Tailgate More Manageable?
    Yes, the Ramp Springs # RS16933LH will definitely make your tailgate more manageable when lowering or retracting. However, it is important to note that these particular springs are only designed to fit a 1-1/2 inch shaft on your tailgate. This part only comes with a single spring. I went ahead and attached a video that shows you how the tailgate will be affected with the spring in use.

  • Sizing of Ramp Springs
    The Ramp Spring, 2K Torque for 1-1/2" Round Shaft, left-hand, # RS16933LH is intended to fit a 1-1/2" round shaft. Placing on a smaller diameter shaft does not cause it to be ineffective but it will be less effective than if properly fit.

  • Availability of Replacement Ramp Springs for 6" Ramp Springs
    The closest springs that we have to what you are looking for are the 4" springs # RS16933LH for the left hand side and # RS16933RH for the right hand side. These are rated for 2,000 ft/lbs and will do a good job at helping you lift your ramps. I would try checking to see what your current springs are rated for as well. If you have an older trailer then it could be that they are simply wearing out but if it is a newer trailer then you may need springs that are more heavy duty.

  • Can Heavy Duty Trailer Ramp Springs be Used on a Bobcat Trailer
    The ramp spring # RS16933LH does fit heavy equipment trailers that have a 1-1/2 inch diameter shaft (or hinge pin where the ramps pivot). It is a weld on application so I am sure that if your trailer has the proper diameter shaft then you can use these springs. There is a left spring, # RS16933LH, and a right spring, # RS16933RH, and you would not want to mix them up because they would not mount properly to be able to function as they should.
