Can you tell me where to purchase a window coil balance for a Traco 4200 double hung vinyl window? I need one coil for each side. Thank you. Dan C.

Hey, Dan! We may be able to help you, but I'm not sure exactly what coil balance you have. Could I see a few pictures of your current setup? I'd like to see the pivot shoe and springs, if possible. Thanks!

Thank you! Take a look at our 15-087 shoe. Does this look like a match? If so, you should also be interested in our Series 180 coil spring. Also check out our 15-086 housing, 33-072 screw, and 16-024 bracket. Let me know what you think!
A home owner from Hanover, IL says:
I have a Traco #TR911 window with a similar internal coil issue the gentleman from arco co had with his TRACO 4200 window. Should I order similar parts? I am also unsure of the coil size to order. This window is a standard window size in our living room.

Thanks for posting! Are the parts you have similar to the ones I suggested, or are they the same? It's hard to tell from these pictures. You should carefully compare the style and dimensions we show on our site and see how they match up to your own. If they differ in any way, tell me how. As for the coil spring, it's not the size you should be thinking about, but the strength. What is the weight of your window, and what numbers are stamped on the springs? How many springs do you have?
