Hi: I need to replace this older spiral window balance. It is not marked, numbered or named at all. It is a Tilt window (vinyl); The only name I find on the window is "Thermo Air 88", no other numbers or other markings. It measures 23.5 inches and has a blue tip; without the white plastic casing the uncovered "coil" part measures 3/8, but with the casing it measures 1/2 inch. Can you match me a like item to replace it with? Thank you! Andre Avdoulos

Thanks for contacting us. Can you confirm the length? Make sure to only measure the plastic tube. That is how we determine the length of our own balances.
Either way, I think you're looking at our Series 600 spiral balance, but let me know what you think.

Hello: Thanks for getting back to me so promptly. It measures 23 inches. I rent my house and unfortunately, my landlord does not know the make of the windows either. But he said to try one of yours. I will look at your Series 600 spiral balance. Thank you!

In that case, how about our S600-23? Does this look like a match to you?
