CURLING IRON MODELS (Styling Hair Tong Models - UK)
PLEASE MEASURE YOUR OLD SPRING BEFORE ORDERING!
EVEN THOUGH YOU SEE YOUR CURLING IRON MODEL NUMBER LISTED BELOW PLEASE MEASURE; SOMETIMES MANUFACTURERS
MAKE PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS AND THE SPRING SIZE MAY HAVE CHANGED FROM AN EARLIER TO A LATER MODEL.
The following springs have been confirmed by our customers to fit the curling irons listed below.
We are constantly updating this curling iron models' list with the help from our customers. The curling iron manufacturers will not cooperate with us on springs or model numbers.
Even if you see your curling iron model shown below please measure your broken spring to get the correct size.
Some curling iron models shown below are listed with several springs that will work.
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.
We have simple step by step instructions for replacing your spring.
Measure broken spring like this
The barrel size of the curling iron does not mean the spring size. We have had some confusion with customers ordering the spring based on the size of the barrel. We have a column shown below in blue for the spring model number tested along with the spring size.
A curling iron model number does not mean our spring model number. Just because a Helen of Troy curling iron model number is a 1007 does not mean you should order our spring number 1007. Our spring numbers have nothing to do with your curling iron model number. Please measure your spring.

I think both the 1" and the 1½" spring can be used in the Chi Model # CA1035. I just preferred the 1½" spring because it gave it more action. I can't attest to the original spring size because that was lost long ago.
** Babyliss Model Number BTM5125 - SPRING 1008
Review from Dave R. 2/24/ 2014
The curling iron is Babyliss Pro Mod. BTM5125. I ordered a number of springs to try in the unit because she was looking for good clamping pressure.
The 1005 fit the easiest but it was not the pressure she was looking for. I used the 1008 as the final replacement. Installation is pretty basic and easy, little more pressure involved because of the spring length and pressure but easily done.
*** Vidal Sassoon Model Number VS196 - SPRING 1007
Review from Elisabeth H. 4/6/ 2016
Hello: finally had time today to mess with curling iron springs today. I'm attaching picture (at end of whole email) of the 1003 and 1007 with my old spring in the middle. You can see one is too little and one is to long but I tried the 1007 with the prongs cut off like you suggested and it worked just fine. Even though in picture it looks shorter, once in the iron the ball at end hits where the old ball did inside of handle. I tried iron right away and so far so good. The two smaller curled up spring parts on 1007 than the wire curls on my old spring also did not seem to impact it at all.
I am also attaching picture of my curling iron for your website or files. So Vidal Sassoon curling iron model VS196...1/2 inch barrel uses a #1007...no prongs. Looks a little smaller but works fine.
Thank you so very very much for your help. I definitely will recommend your site. it was a lifesaver for me.
^ Helen of Troy Model Number 1005 - SPRING 1002
Review from Melissa W. 8/3/2012
My curling iron is the Helen of Troy Model 1005 (not be confused with the replacement spring model #1005) it's a big barrel (4" circumference) After inspecting it visually and taking measurements without taking it apart, (the spring was broken on 1 side but still usable) I ordered replacement spring model #1002. When I received the spring and took the curling iron apart to replace it I discovered that the original spring was actually a #1006 style, but the small plate had hidden the curved prongs. I decided to try and use the spring I ordered anyway, and it worked fine once I screwed the small cover plate back on to hold the spring in place. While I was installing it the spring was really rigid and I didn't think that it would work once I put it back together, but it was perfect; the tension on the curling iron is perfect and the whole removal and replacement took only 8 minutes with just a Phillips screw driver.
Review from Christi E. 9/5/2012
The springs were in yesterday's mail. I installed spring 1002 last night when I got home. It was a breeze to install spring 1002. I chose that one since it seemed more sturdy/reliable. The spring in my Helen of Troy 1005 model curling iron (purchased in April 2010) looks more like your spring number 1006. I was able to make the 1002 fit, but I think I'll order some 1006 springs to keep as spares.
I should've taken more time up-front to inspect my old spring so I would've noticed the differences between 1002 & 1006. I didn't look that closely at the images on your website to even notice 1006 & 1007 had the bend in the prongs at the bottom--which I needed. I thought they all looked the same except for measurement and the shape of that roller ball thingy. Oops!
