Most hardware and DIY stores will carry a selection of individual springs in individual poly bags for applications like gates, doors etc. Most places will even have a board with the springs on them to make getting the right one easier.

When I once made my spring-loaded ball valve for my launcher I couldnt be bothered to look for a spring, a great alternative is the inside of bungee cord (elastic) - it worked great.

There is always ebay
