What type of balance mechanism attaches to your pivot shoe?

It looks similar to SWISCO product codes 15-175 and 15-177, these are pivot shoes that work with a coil system.
A quick learner says:
It looks like the 15-175 would work but the spring might not attach properly.I will modify the shoe if I have too if this its the best you can do.

What type of spring--or balance--do you have? Is it a coil, a spiral, or maybe even a channel? Once we know what type of balance you have, we may be able to find a closer match.
A quick learner from MASSACHUSETTS says:
I will have to inspect the window more closely.From what i have seen without taking anything apart there is a string with a return spring force on it with a flat hook attached at the bottom that fits into the shoe,which is where the types of shoes differ from my orrininal.

I see. Thank you for the information. I might have a part for you to look at that may be closer. I'll post again in this thread as soon as I have more information available.

Thank you for your patience in this matter. Please take a look at our new 15-208 9/16" thick pivot lock shoe. Do you think this might work for you? Please let me know!
