Balancers for window

A home owner from USA says:
Hello, I am in need of some balancers parts for the UPPER sash of 2 windows.
The dealer the we purchased the windows from about 20 years ago, said
the type that I am needing is no longer available. They directed me to your
website. I have attached a picture on the items that are needing replacement.
I believe your 152 series will be the replacement. Please quote me on the
proper pieces that I will need to repair the upper sashes on 2 windows. The
number stamped on my present spring/coil is 5. The size of the coil balancer shoe
measures 1 .25"w x 1.5" high.

Thank you

Hey, Joe. If the springs are okay, and you just need the pivot shoe, see our 15-141. This is 1-1/4" wide and 9/16" thick. If you do need the springs, then you should consider our S152-5 coil springs and and 33-072 screw.

Thanks for the reply. Please review my photo, will my present coil spring with the notch on the end work with the 15-141 pivot shoe that you suggested?

Ah, I see. I actually didn't notice that notch before. My apologies. I don't believe your old spring can work with our shoe, as it is meant to work with springs that screw on. You may need to replace the spring in that case, as well.
