Spiral balance from 1940s

A quick learner from Wickliffe, Ohio says:
This is the internal spring from a 5/8 tube. Bottom tab wraps around the bottom of the sash held in place by one screw. Tab is broken where screw hole was.

Thanks for writing in. For these old wood window spiral balances, we recommend our Series 500 along with a bracket like our 17-007 or 17-012. We have used this combination to repair wood windows like yours for decades. See what you think.
