Ramp Door Springs
The springs on our ramp door had weakened to where I could pull them away from the door hinge with two fingers when the door was closed. Not wanting to replace the springs only to have them settle in like these ones did, I tried an experiment with spacer blocks.
So far the results are good. The door is as easy as it was when new, maybe a little better, but that’s not a measured result, effort based. The blocks are made from an automotive plastic, can't remember the proper name. Nominal dimensions of the block sides are one side 3/16”, two sides are ¼” and one side 5/16”. I’m set to ¼” on top of the spring and 5/16” on the bottom. So far so good…
