We might be able to help, but I don't know who made your windows. That's usually not the best way to go about finding replacements, anyway. It's better to go off of physical details. If you were to show me a picture of what you need to replace, we can help you find a replacement.

i measured the lenght and the length is 30 inches. note that it is skrewed at the top and then hooks at the bottom of the window. dont know what if it is supposed to have some type of clasp at the bottom...did not find one. thanks for the help

Thanks! I would start with our S400-30 spiral balance. Keep in mind this has an outer tube diameter of 3/8". If yours is 5/8" or 9/16" instead, see our S500-30.

Does it have some type of clip that holds it in on the window?

Sure, there's all kinds of different clips. I wouldn't be able to identify yours without seeing it. You can see our entire selection here.
