existing lower (29") & upper (27") sash spiral balance hardware - to be replaced

A quick learner from Bedford, NY says:

Could not find any manufacturer's name, #s, or marks on any of the balance system


I have not gotten an opportunity to weigh any sash yet, but I believe this room's lower sash weigh about 20lbs.

the existing spiral hardware is currently attached to the bottom of both sash by the 3" X 3/8" pivoting plate @ the bottom of both sash's spiral balance hardware (shown in the photograph. the existing spiral balance system appears to have replaced the original sash weight balance system - quite a few decades ago, I would venture to say.

We are intending to replace the balance system hardware in about about 20 sash openings in this building

Thanks for writing in. I think it's safe to assume your spiral balance is 5/8" and are made for a wood window. If this is correct, then you should be able to use our S500-27 and S500-29 with a 17-007 balance bracket. Compare your parts to ours just to make sure this is correct.
