A quick learner from Missouri says:

Looking to replace the balances. white plastic tube covers measure 34 3/4" and they seem to be 1/2' round. S600-35,

Hi there,

You are correct in choosing a S600-35 black tip balance. Most Alcoa windows use our 15-046 pivot shoe. We need you to tilt in and remove the sash and take a photo of the whole pivot shoe, so we can be sure that this will work for your window. Thank you!

Here's the pic you requested. I have since my initial email pulled the balance. I'll order those, and the dimensions jibe on the pivots so I'll go ahead and order those also.

I appreciate all your help.

Take care,

Great, as long as the dimensions match up with the pivot shoe I think the 15-046 is a good match. Thank you for your business and let me know if we can help with anything else.
