I have downloaded the installation instructions for this part # F-2538 and the other window sash ...

I have downloaded the installation instructions for this part # F-2538 and the other window sash spring part # F-2537. It is clear that F-2537 attaches with a screw to the top or bottom of the window sash, with the bend of the metal providing friction against the jamb. The instructions for mounting the F-2538 are unclear. It says to push the metal piece between the sash and the jamb. It says no screws are used. So how does this piece stay in place? There are two holes but it says they are not affixed to the jamb with screws. When the sash moves, what will keep this spring from falling out of the jamb as it is not attached to the jamb or sash? Sashes are generally 19 or more inches high whereas this spring is just 5 or so inches so if the sash is pushed all the way up or down the spring would fall out of the jamb. If the spring is screwed to the jamb then when the sash moves away from the spring it would not be able to pass over it again as the protruding bent ends would hit/block the edge of the sash from moving vertically. To attach the spring to the sash stile would require removing the window stops, so seems that is not intended. The downside of the other part # F-2537 is that the metal spring would rub on the jamb, rubbing/wearing on the jamb coating (be it wax, paint, varnish). If this part # F-2538 was stationary with the jamb then it could help prevent the sash movement from damaging the jamb coating. I just don't see how it would not impede the movement of the sash if it does not move with the sash.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding this item from Prime-Line Products, and our apologies for any inconvenience or confusion this has caused you. This item includes two (2) tension springs and four (4) ring shank nails in each package, in addition to the installation instructions that state to use them when installing. The punched holes on the back side of these springs have a rough edge that protrudes outward, for better grip against the jamb. Sometimes, in certain conditions, the nails are not required and these will hold in place by the raised metal alone - from the punch holes. If you find that the spring falls out of place once inserted, you may need to use the nails for optimal performance. Please feel free to contact Prime-Line Products directly where a Product Specialist there can better assist you with your inquiry. You may also send photos in for us to visualize precisely what you are inquiring about. For additional questions regarding this item, or any other product manufactured by Prime-Line Products, kindly call their toll free number at (877) 649-9740, or contact them by email at prodtech@primeline.net

AS expected, it raises the lower sash of a double hung window, when either the rope is broken or spring is not functioning, i would include better nails to install the sash spring, otherwise a good product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Took 10 days for Home Depot to find & deliver... Took 10 days for Home Depot to find & deliver this to store near me. Website didn't indicate that 1 package contained 2 springs, so I bought 2 pkgs, & ended up w/ 4 springs when I only needed 2. No hardware required, but nails included--with directions indicating screwdriver is needed! Why?

One or two placed as directed do the job of keeping the sash from falling down. No more 'sticks' propping them up! Super price, too! Be aware, this is not meant to fix the 'rattly ole windows' to keep the wind from coming through, but is great for the job intended.
