Curling Iron Replacement Springs
CURLING IRON SPRING REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Measure your broken spring like the picture on the right to get the correct size.
Look at the Curling Iron Models page to see which spring has been tested and worked for our customers.
Match your spring to the photos of our Replacement Springs.
Springs 1002, 1003, 1006 & 1007 are made of a thicker metal and more stiffer.
Springs 1001, 1004, 1005, 1008 & 1009 are made of a thinner metal and more flexible.
It's a good idea to order more that one spring because they will continue to break due to metal fatigue.

MOST CURLING IRONS - STEP BY STEP SPRING INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
tension spring

1. Unplug the curling iron.

2. Remove the curling iron stand by grasping one side of the stand and pulling outward and down under the iron; causing the stand to release. Careful not to bend the stand any further than necessary.

3. Remove the two small side screws from the curling iron handle with a philips #1 screwdriver. One screw for each side. Some curling irons have retaining pins that pop out as shown in the video above. Once they are removed the tensioner handle will fall off the iron.

4. Remove the broken spring by loosening the screw holding the clip under the tension handle. No need to remove the screw.

5. Install the new replacement spring by slipping the spring under the clip. You may have to squeeze the spring's two wires together to fit into the clip. Tighten the screw down on the clip.

6. Re-attach the handle to the barrel and install the side screws or retaining pins. The handle will feel stiff when attaching; this is normal.

7. Re-attach the curling iron stand.

Review from Sandy H. 6/25/2012

I received the replacement spring #1003 with rollerball for my Helen of Troy Professional Gold Series curling iron Model #1003. This model does not have a screw down clamp for the spring. There is a hole in the barrel for the prongs to fit in. I measured the broken spring very carefully and matched it perfectly with the new spring when it arrived. The wear mark in the clamp does not match up with the new spring and the tension does not feel the same (not as tight). I was able to dislodge the new spring easily by flipping the clamp open & shut several times. I have tried to push the spring prongs deeper into the hole on the barrel but they definitely will not go in any further. I also removed the clamp and examined the interior of the hole and there is no place to push the prongs any deeper. Because the spring does not go all the way in, the coils kind of stick up a little off the barrel where the old spring sat right on the barrel.

I do believe that I ordered the proper spring for this curling iron but I can not be sure that the prongs are the same length since they fell out when the spring broke and I did not find them. I will try the iron (its my favorite) again to see if the spring stays in place. I hope this info helps.

UPDATE from Sandy H. 6/27/2012

I have tried the new spring in the iron and it seems to stay in place when I curled my hair. I will get used to the change in tension, maybe because the old spring was getting ready to break it felt different. I would make sure to warn anyone about the problem with the “old” curling iron hole and the new spring.

Review from Teresa B. 7/6/2012

I received the new spring (#1003) and replaced it which was very simple. The curling iron was a (Old Style) Helen of Troy Model 1003 3/4" barrel. Well it fit perfectly and if I need a spring for any of my other curling irons, I will surely contact you.
