Carefree counterbalance parts

A home owner from USA says:
Hello,

Could you help me pick out the parts to rebuild my window counter balances?

The manufactures CareFree is out of business and I would need the shoe, instructions on how to remove them, the balance spring loaded rod, the winding tool and installation instructions.

You have an old pivot shoe that is no longer made. As you mentioned, CareFree isn't in business anymore. We recommend our 15-134 pivot shoe as a replacement, though you will also need a new 26-297 pivot bar. If you also need the balance, see our Series 900 spiral balance. See the videos on the right side of this page for helpful instructions.
