Broken Torsion spring cable

Tis morning I heard a noise opening the door. When I shut it the door was ****ed. Found one of my torsion spring cable snapped at the eyelet. How do I replace this??

Buy the correct length spring at Home Depot/Lowe's.

Open the door all the way.

There was a short chain on the bottom of my spring, bolted to the door frame. I counted the chain lengths for reference.

I removed the old spring, I had a safety cable running up the center of the spring.

I connected the new spring to the chain.

I very carefully grabbed the spring near the middle and with a squatting motion, like a weight lifter, I was able to stand upright and place the top hook into place.

With the tension removed from the spring it is really not that hard to do.
