Hey, Gabriel. Thanks for posting. Could I see a few pictures of the pivot shoe that these balances hook onto? That will help me find a good match.

Thank you for your patience. I think you should consider our Series 500 spiral balance with a 17-011 clip. Check it out and let me know what you think.
A contractor from WPB says:
On the 500 series springs what color tip do you recommend Can I use the existing pivot shoes that are there or do I need to use the 17-011 clip
Look forward to the answer so that we can place the order

Thanks

Hey, Gabriel. I think it would be best to go with our 17-011 clips, as I know these can work with our Series 500 already. As for what tip you need, it depends on the weight of your sash. How much does yours weigh?
