Iím looking for these hooked attachments for the spring system used in my 1936 double hung windows. One end attaches to the bottom of the window and the other end is twisted to attach to a small loop at the end of the spring hanging down from the top. I havenít been able to find any online and am hoping someone might be able to help me find s resource for them

These hooks are probably not available.
You may be able to find someone who can make some for you by bending wire of the right size and type of metal. That's what I would do in my shop.
How many do you need?

i've just gotten back to my window project and just saw this reply about the pieces I need for my window springs to work. Are you available to make some in your shop? I need approximately 10 but could use a smaller amount if that would be more realistic for you do do. It would be a wonderful thing to have them made by you if it works out. THANKS

I believe I could make 10 of those for you. The cost would be $60. You would need to send me a sample. It might take up to a month to get this on my schedule. There is a possibility that they are made of high-strength spring steel, in which case I could not make them and would return the samples to you, with no cost to you.

It looks like there may be "right" and "left" versions that are different. If so, you would need to send me samples of both right and left.

Send samples with payment to:
