CertainTeed Pivot Shoes

A handy person from New Hampshire says:

I attached two pictures of the parts I am looking for my CertainTeed double-hung window. I have the SK 336 Coiled Balance Springs. Please confirm that the right part for the spring is the 336 Series 170 as I have seen in a post on this site.

Also, can you help me identify the right pivot shoes like in the attached pictures?

Hey, Christos. Thanks for contacting us. Now, it's hard to tell if you have the Series 170 based on these images. However, your shoe closely resembles our 15-155. Compare them and let me know if you agree. If you think you have the 15-155, then this is commonly used with the Series 170 spring so I think it is, indeed, the best place to start.
