Clips for spiral balance

A contractor from Montreal says:
Hi,

We have a restoration project in Montreal for old wood windows and we need to put in new spiral balances. We already have the balance that the client bough for us so we are stuck with them. The problem is we need the clips to attach them to the frame. Our balances have a pin that stick out on each side making it

I'm afraid your question was cut off, so I'm not sure exactly what it is you're asking. Could you show us a picture of the tip of the balances you received? If you also have the old brackets, I would like to see those, too.

That said, when it comes to old wood windows we usually recommend the Series 500 spiral balance with a 17-007 or 17-012 bracket. We have used this combination for generations.
