carefree window replacement parts.

A handy person from Rapid City SD says:
I found a post on your web site about replacement spiral balances for tilt windows that would work on Carefree windows. I ordered two 900-27 spiral balances. My bad they should have been 900-26. the end that fits in the pivot lock shoe does not fit in the shoe in my windows the two nubs as I call them are an 1/8 inch tow far apart to let the balance hook into the shoe. do you have an solution for this.

Hmmm... I have come across a similar issue before. What I did was use a pair of pliers to carefully and slightly bend the prong up. That allowed the tilt pins to lock under. Would this work for you?
