Tilt Window Replacement Parts

A handy person from New Jersey says:
I'd like to know if you have 17" 600 series spiral balances with black tips? My sashes weigh around 33 pounds (current balances are red tip and are really shot).

I also need to replace the pivot lock. It looks like the 15-119 but the cam is white an it seems like it might be a 16th of an inch thinner than 3/4 of an inch. Is the 15-119 really a full 3/4" thick?
I've attached a picture of my pivot lock. Thanks!

It seems you have identified the correct pivot shoe. The Swisco 15-119 Pivot Shoe is 1/32" lighter, and since yours appears to be worn down, it could have work down to 1/16".

Yes, if you have 17" Series 600 balances for a 33 pound sash they should be black tip.

S600-17 with Black Tip option will carry a window sash weight range of 29 through and including 40 pounds.

We have added the needed black tip option online for you.
