Patriot Window Spiral Balance

A home owner from Southern New Jersey says:
Thanks for the great video. I am having a difficult time getting any guidance on Patriot single sash widows. I know the spiral balance is adjustable, and a few of my windows refuse to stay open. Is the procedure for Patriot windows the same, and which tool is appropriate?

Thanks for posting! I don't think the procedure for adjusting spiral balances for tilt-windows should be any different for Patriot windows. Where are you running into problems, exactly?
A home owner from South Jersey says:
I am reluctant to attempt an adjustment if a special tool is required. I believe I saw a post somewhere in which it was stated that unless you have the tool you're in for a handful of problems. Can you recommend a tool for this task?

Yes, you will need a special tool to adjust your tilt-window spiral balance. Check out our 75-006, which is what we used in our video.
