Tension springs, which are sometimes referred to as extension springs, are closed wound springs that resist a pulling force.

 

They work opposite to compression springs.

 

Normally tension springs will have eyes or hooks for mounting.

 

Tension springs are used in the likes of tilt garage door, car drum brake shoes and trampolines.
