SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Correct Size of Series 860 Arrow Balance

A home owner from Knoxville, TN says:
The balance for the vinyl tilt-in single hung window that I need to replace has a 27" rod. The distance from the top of my balance to the window sill is 57". Is a 28" replacement balance the right size to order? The shoe measures 1.25". The window is 33" wide and the header of the balance is black. I appreciate your assisting me in ordering the right part.

If you can, please provide us with the size of the bottom sash glass height.

The bottom tilt-in glass height is 26 1/4".

You need a S860-26 with a black cap and 1-1/4" shoe.
