Window Channel Balance Retainer

A home owner from Loveland Ohio says:
I have a 20 year old house and some of the balance spring retainer clips have broken over the years. I don't know who made the windows but I have been able to get the clip and the spring unit out of the vinyl window.
The only numbers i could find was 3430E on the spring retainer which seems to be made by BSI.
I can't seem to find the exact same clip on here. The retainer clip I have is plastic and is attached by a screw to the side of the window with a little bit of plastic hanging over the side to catch the spring.

Would any of the current clips on here work (like the take out clip 16-009)?
where would I be able to find the exact clip I need?

Thank you for posting, Daniel.

Can you submit a few photos of your current clip? This will help us determine what may work as a replacement.

Here are pictures of the clip that I need to replace. This is a good one that I took off a working window.

The first picture shows how it is oriented when it is attached to the window.

Thanks for your help
