What color tip for 3/8" dia, 26" tube, 25 lbs

A quick learner says:
I have a 3/8" diameter 26" length spiral balance for a 25 lb window sash. What color spiral balance do I use? Also, do the spiral balances come with an adjustment tool or do I have to buy one separately.

Thanks for posting! Unfortunately, our spiral balances do not come with the charging tool. You will have to buy it separately.

To determine your tip color, I will first need to know if your window is tilt or non-tilt. That will help determine the balance series.

It is a tilt window

Thanks for getting back to us so quickly!

It appears you will need the S900-26 with the Green tip option.

The tool you'll need is the 75-006 Charging Tool.
