Hi,

One of the "disappearing springs" on my attic ladder snapped and I've been having a tough time locating a replacement. The ladder is at least 30+ years old. It's called the "EZ Way Stairway Model 18" by the Minnesota Wood Specialties Company.

Does anyone know where to look for one?? I went to and called at least 10, 12 hardware stores, large chains and mom & pop shops, no one seems to have anything close to it. The spring measures 16 inches in length and half an inch in diameter.

The attic ladder won't close at all. Please help.

You'd do best to find the manufacturer (web search) if they are still in business and get the spring directly from them.

If the company no longer exists, time for a new attic door.

I am replacing my attic stairway with the same model and would be will to ship you any parts needed. There's no date on this post so I apologize bothering you if this is a decade later. If the issue has been resolved I'm happy for you and send my best, if not let me know how I can be of help and what parts ypu need, I could even send the whole unit for current or future use

BV006460, I also need springs for the ez-way stairway if you still have parts for the taking and Kelvin hadn't responded. Thx

I could use a hinge from the model 18. Do you still have parts available?
