I need a 10 lb coil balance

A handy person from wichita kansas says:
I had the glass replaced in my vinyl single hung windows and the new glass is heavier than the old glass. Now my windows will not stay open so I need to replace my existing coil balances with a heavier duty balance. The existing coil balance is stamped with "740" and is a style #190. I used you calulation system to determine that I need a 10 pound balance. Do I want the "832" balance?

Good Afternoon,

The S190-832 Coil Balance Spring would be the next step up. However, please give us the weight of your window sash and approximate glass size before we continue.
A quick learner from wichita kansas says:
my sash size is 25 x 35 and we have double strength glass. I calculated the weight at 19.76 pounds using your formula.

there are currently 2 balances per window, one each side, both marked with the "740" marking

I think the move up to S190-832 should work for your window.
