SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Broken spring carrier for unknown manufacturer window.

A home owner from Melbourne Beach, FL says:
Looking to buy a replacement part for one of my home windows. Attached pic shows the 'carrier' (plastic part that is towards the bottom of the assembly shown in pic...it accepts the center rod on window section that moves up n down) that is cracked. Window is a single hung, double pane, tilt in cleaning style. I also attached the only tag I can find. Thanks!

Just to clarify after looking at your site a little what I called a carrier is actually a pivot lock shoe w a single coil. Thanks!

Thank you for posting. The shoe looks a lot like our 15-180. Carefully compare it to your own hardware and see if you agree. If so, you may also want to look at our 15-186 coil bracket and 15-182 coil spring bushing. If you also need the springs themselves, look at our Series 190 and see if this matches.

You nailed it. Exact match and removal video was very helpful. You need to add a 'tip jar' line at checkout. I felt bad only ordering a couple dollars of parts with such good service so I ordered some spares too. Thanks again!
