spiral window balances and pivot block shoes

A quick learner from Memphis says:
I have aluminum single hung tilt windows and the balances and shoes are shot. It looks like yours will fit what are your thoughts?

I do not know if our hardware will work for you, it's possible, but I would need more information.

To start, I'd like to see some pictures of your pivot shoes along with detailed dimensions, especially their thickness and width. As for the balances, what Series of ours were you looking at, specifically? How does it compare to what you have? Where do they differ? Let me know and we can work from there.

Hi Paul
I'm looking at the 900 series in red tip and white. The shoe measures 3/8" thick and 1" wide. I'm sending you pictures of the shoe and the bar. Thanks for all of your assistance.

Awesome! This pivot shoe looks pretty close to our 15-045. Take a look and see if you agree. As for the balance, you said you were looking at the Series 900 balance. How does that compare to your hardware? Do the style and dimensions match up?
A quick learner from Memphis says:
Yes the balances seem to match up. Thanks for your help.
