Spiral balance identificatino

A quick learner from New Jersey says:
I need to identify the correct spiral balance for a tilt in style double hung window.

The diameter is 5/8", the tube length is 23", and it has a red tip.

Thanks for posting! Please take a look at our S600-23 spiral balance. Do you think this may work for you?
A quick learner says:
Thanks for getting back to me.

This looks as though it should work. Is there anything else I need to consider to be sure? Any difference between the series 600 and other series that have double pins?

The biggest difference is the diameter. As for other parts, you'd have to take a look around your sash for any parts that may seem worn or broken. Take a look at our tutorial video on how to replace a tilt window spiral balance to get an idea of what you should look for.
