How Does the Redline Ramp Spring RS16933LH Install


Good afternoon would u please advise me I have a horse trailer and I would like to fit the rear door with the said spring to help ease the closing of the door I would think the door may well weight around 300 to400 lbs

The Redline Ramp Spring # RS16933RH is a replacement spring and is only part of the ramp spring system on a trailer. 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. The springs we carry are designed for heavyweight steel doors or ramps commonly found on heavy equipment trailers or car haulers. If your trailer is not set up to accept a hinge spring, a hinge would need to be fabricated and installed.

For the left hand side spring you would want the # RS16933LH.
