Acorn Window Parts

A home owner from Roselle, Illinois says:
Hello,

I am looking for Acorn tilt out window replacement parts. I believe they are the original parts when out townhome was built in 1978.

The spiral balance are 3/8" and 25" long. There is no color indicator at the mouth but the windows seem greater than 22 lbs.

Pivot shoes are 5/8' thick, 2 1/4" across.

The latches are aprox. 2" long, 1 1/4" wide and 1/2" high.

I'm need parts for 6 windows total, 2 of each per window.

You have an old Acorn Series 3000 window. With that in mind, I think you should consider the following parts: our 26-169 top tilt lock, S900-25 spiral balance (with a Blue Tip), and 15-046 pivot shoe, though this last one is just an educated guess since I cannot see yours. Please carefully review this hardware to confirm that they will work for you.

Thanks Paul,

I'm including some more photos of the pivot shoes to help pin point if possible. Also, there is a number on the part, hard to see but I think it is MJ3055062. Thanks much again,

Joe

Thank you. Yes, our 15-046 appears to be a good match. Yours is actually discontinued and no longer made, but I personally think the 15-046 is an even stronger replacement.
