How do you connect a coil balance to pivot shoe?

A home owner from Haverhill, MA says:
Have a removed the counter balancer parts for one of my windows. I have the coil and it matches up to your S-160. The shoe is damaged but measures 1-1/4"wx 1/2"thick x 1"h. The support appears to be ok, but I will replace it. Is the Support for that the 15-150? Does the coil connect to this pivot shoe 15-191? If so, how does it connect?

The coil balance's tail goes into a slot on top of the 15-191 shoe, then to lock it in you just twist. This is easier to do if you remove both the balance and shoe from the window track so you can perform this easily. Otherwise, you'll be using small needle nose pliers to insert/twist the coil's tail which is extremely difficult.
