Spiral Sash Balance

A home owner from USA says:

I need 2 replacement spiral sash balance(s) for an old (1950's?) non-tilt double hung single pane window.

The original balance(s) are 3/8" diameter & 19" long made by Unique Balance Co.

I would like to hopefully match the old style if possible.


Pictures attached.

Hey, Ken. I don't think you're going to find the old style anywhere, unfortunately. When it comes to these old balances, we usually opt for our Series 500 spiral balance, along with a bottom supporting bracket like our 17-007 or 17-012. We find this setup works just as well.
