What is a chassis balancer?
A frame balancer (balancer spring) is a spring device used to counterbalance a shutter in a box frame window. Chassis balances eliminate the need for sash weights, sash cords and pulleys.

A window rocker is a somewhat hidden component of the window sitting inside the window frame. It is only found in double-hung or single-hung windows and helps you support the weight of the sash when you open and close your windows. They also keep the upper sash of the double-hung windows closed when they are not in use.
A window shutter is the part of the window that holds the glass and the frame around the glass to hold it in place. The window shutters are fixed in the window frame and can be movable or not.

Using a pencil, point out the position of the fixing holes of the builders on the frame of the casement. Drill pre-holes and screw the frame to the casement frame. Close the window and make sure that it is tightly pressed against the frame. Position the pins under the frame so that each one is aligned with the holes at both ends of the frame.
In some cases, buying a new-build window at your local home improvement center, removing the shutter and using it as a replacement can be cheaper than ordering a shutter replacement kit. This is only possible when your existing window corresponds exactly, one for one, to the window of the new construction.
