SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Side Load Single Hung Balance Spring

A handy person from Northern California says:
I'm so glad I found your video as I have a number of windows that are becoming increasingly difficult to open and close. A few have had the springs break.

Now that I know how based on your site, I want to make sure I purchase the correct parts.

I've attached a PDF document that has pictures of both ends and the width. The length is 28" measuring the metal, not including the top and bottom plastic pieces.

Thanks in advance for your advise and I cannot wait to place an order from you. You have no idea how I have hated having to hang on my windows to close them! HAHA

Thanks for posting. Before I can suggest a balance, I just need to know a bit more information about the bottom attachment. Please take a look at our 15-004 and 15-005 channel balance shoes, and note their depths. As you can see, they are 1-3/32" deep and 1" deep, respectively. Which one more closely matches your own bottom attachment?
A handy person from Northern California says:
Paul, thanks for the response and I apologize, but i submitted twice on this issue. :)

the 15-004 more closely resembles the shoe on my current balance. The shoe on mine measures about 1 1/16 depth

Also the top looks to be the exact shape and dimensions of your part number 19-002

Would i be able to use your channel balance series 350?

Thanks

I agree with you, Scott; the S350-28 appears to be a close match to your own. Just confirm that the dimensions of your bottom shoe match as closely as possible to the 15-004. I would select the 2740 stamp option, based on your previous stamp.
A handy person from Northern California says:
Thanks again Paul. The dimensions are very close. I am going to order up 4 for the two windows that aren't working. Once I confirm they work well, I will replace more.

Your service is exemplary and better than some of the local stores i visited in person.

Will keep you posted!
