Cardale Blue Spot Garage Door Spring
These Cardale blue spot springs are designed to work with a range of double steel slideaway (retractable) garage doors manufactured before 2004 (14’ x 6’6” and 14’ x 7’). This includes Gemini, Sheraton, Jacobean, and Edwardian Cardale garage doors.
As Cardale part number AZSP3302L
It is always recommended to replace springs in pairs, so that the door remains balanced.
How can I identify if this is the part I need for my garage door?
The most basic way to do this would be to look at the springs you currently have. These springs can be identified by the blue ‘spot’ on one end of the spring. If the marking has disappeared due to wear and tear or rusting, then you can also measure it. The spring measures approx. 475mm over the coils, with a diameter of 50mm, and 74 coils (6.5mm diameter).
Alternatively, if there’s still a label on your garage door that has the brand and model this can also help in identifying the part.
How do I go about replacing the springs?
The process of replacing a Cardale blue spot spring is quite simple. To remove an existing spring, first prop the door open so that the spring is in its most relaxed position, then loosen the bottom eyebolt which will allow you to remove the spring from the door.
To fit a new spring, with the door fully open, hook the top of the spring onto the pin, and connect the bottom hook to the eyebolt. Adjust the tension on the eyebolt as required. Check the opening motion of the door and re-adjust the tension if needed.
Only one of my springs has broken, can I just replace that one?
It is always recommended to replace springs in pairs when possible. This allows you to make sure that the door is stable and balanced. Also note that if you replace only one spring our standard product warranty will no longer apply. Click here to read our terms and conditions to find out more about this.
