A home owner from Parma, OH says:
The current windows have 22" 5/8 balances with a green tip. You only show black/blue/red, which one should I use?

Thanks, Roman

Hi Roman, Thank you for posting! First we will need to know if your window is a tilt or non-tilt window. Then, we will need the weight of your window's sash. The color option for the tip is defined by the amount of window sash weight the balance can support.
A home owner from Parma, OH says:
The weight of the window is 19.2LBs.

Thanks for posting. I'm still not sure if your window is tilt or non-tilt. Can you confirm what you have? In the meantime, take a look at our S600-22 spiral balance. Does this match your hardware? If so, you could select a blue tip, which has a weight capacity of 10 through 29 pounds.

This information is based on 2 balances per sash. Balances are designed assuming friction in the jamb weather-strip will carry a portion of the sash weight. Suggested sash weights are approximate.
