We would be happy to research this for you if you cannot identify the needed hardware on our site. Please reply with photos of your existing sash support balance system so that we can take a look at the system you are replacing.
A quick learner from groton says:
mike i found the parts i need and have the measurements the only question i have is on the balances i would need are the 12.5 in series 850 crossbow has a hole on the top that looks like it needs to be attached to the sides mine were not attached to anything would they still work if i dont attatch them?

The top of the balance is designed to attach at the top of the window channel, and the tilt bar on the window hooks in at the bottom hole.
