Thanks for posting! It sounds like you're talking about spiral balances. Without more information, I'm not sure what you'd need. However, take a look at our Spiral Balance Home Page and follow the steps shown in order to identify the Series that matches your hardware. With that in mind, we will be better able to determine what you need.

Yes, you will have to weigh the sash and compare its weight to the Tip Colors shown for the S600-31. It's important that you get as exact a weight as possible.

I recommend the Red Tip. As shown on the S600-31 product page, two balances with this tip can hold a window sash weight of 7 through 29 pounds.
