Where can I get a replacement spring?

Spring
Spring


It came from a B&Q cabinet that is well out of stock now. I've got no idea what terms to search for to find a replacement...

Regards,

well we need to start with approx size, and strength. I guess its a 'pull' spring, the number of coils might help,

edit: a very quick search suggests many places ie:
https://www.flexosprings.com/stock-springs/extension-springs
or
https://www.coilspringsdirect.com/store/tension-springs

I guess I was more on about the shape of the spring, I've not seen one like this before.

Not seen spring stays like that for years.

If I remember rightly, these were often used on overhead hatch doors that swing up. The spring would then hold the door open.

I guess the modern equivalent would be a gas spring.

Have a look at this site as they seem to have some good options.

I would look at the following ebay link, just get something of the right diameter, and maybe put one inside another ?

Might be worth trying Springmasters, in Reddich or even Terry springs.





Phoned the local ramblers club today, but the bloke who answered just
