Coil Balance

A contractor from Sunnyside, NY says:
Hello. I am attempting to identify coil balances for my existing windows. They are double-hung tilt ins. Additionally, I would like to know if you have the 'pin' that is attached to the corner of the sash.

Thank you for you assistance

Thanks for writing in. This Pivot Shoe looks like our 15-175. Compare the width and thickness to confirm they match. This pivot shoe is compatible with our Series 152 Coil Springs. Let us know if you have any questions determining the spring weights you need. As far as your pivot bar, I can't be certain without seeing it removed from the window sash. You can start by looking at our 26-226 and 26-352, two pivot bars that are commonly used with the 15-175. It's really going to come down the distance between the mounting hole(s) and the tip that inserts into the pivot shoe. If at least one of the holes align with your old pivot bar, it should work for you.

Thank you Bob. Very helpful.

One question about the pivot.. I think what is on my window is actually a pivot pin. It is not a straight bar attached at the bottom of the sash. It's "L" shaped and fastened to the side of the sash.

Thank you for your patience while we looked into this. The manufacturer of your balance system suggests our 26-316 pivot bar as a replacement. I think this works the same way; the vertical "L" piece has the same shape as yours. It looks like your pivot bar recedes deeper into your sash channel, too. Or at least, I hope it does! Look it over and let us know what you think.
