Thanks for posting. Can you confirm the diameter of the plastic tube? It should be either 3/8" or 5/8".

Sorry for the late reply. The plastic tube is 5/8.

Thank you! In that case, I recommend our S600-31 spiral balance. I would also recommend the Red Tip option, but weigh your sash just to make sure. Also keep in mind that our balance tubes are metal, not plastic. We find that plastic tubes get brittle and shatter too often.
