SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Fisher window balance replacements

A landlord from Austin, TX says:
I took these photos from a working identical window. The window with the broken balance never worked correctly, and it turns out it had different balances. I believe the springs were too strong.

Thanks for posting! We will be able to replace this balance for you, but I just need some more information. Take a look at our 15-001 and 15-002 and see which one of these are closer to your existing shoe, in terms of dimensions. That will help us determine the best Series.
Comparison of 15-001 & 15-002

The current shoe most closely matches 15-001.
