About This Product

This non-tilt block and tackle channel balance is constructed of a mill-finished steel U-frame housing. The internal working components include a spring, cord and pulley system, but the plastic top and bottom guide shoes must be selected separately as they are not included with the balance itself. These window counter balances are used to counter-weight the moving sash on single and double hung vinyl windows. If your windows (sashes), are having problems staying up when opened, it may be that your sash balances or hardware needs to be replaced. The sash balances hold the weight of the window pane, over time, the springs can wear out or fail. Replace your sash balance for a smoother operation of your window and allow fresh air to enter your home with a window that stays open.

Highlights

  • Can be used on most single or double hung windows
  • Heat treated high tension steel spring
  • Will offset the weight of a window between 13 and 19 pounds
  • 5/8 inch aluminum channel housing
  • Compare old guide ends and note their dimensions to order the new guide ends
  • Must select the top and bottom guide ends that are sold separately
  • Prime-Line part H 3740 riveting tool can be ordered separately for installation of guide ends
  • For further dimensional information, please see the line drawing

Q:If I have a 30 pound window that requires 2 of these, would 2 of these work since they offset 13-19#? Or do I need 2x of ones that offset 30#s?

      Q:My home is 30 years old with original windows. Not sure of window manufacturer but has inline window block and tackle. I am missing the slotted barrel that the spring clip attaches to. It's the slotted piece that the two extended pieces on each side of the window fit into. This allows the window to rotated down and also for removal. Any idea how I may obtain this "slotted barrel"?

            The balance does not come with the plastic tips needed to fit the window hardware. I had to remove the tips from the old balance.
