SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

24" long channel balances

A home owner from Clearwater, FL says:
My balances are stamped "23 4 CQ Caldell" and the metal balance is 24" long. I have attached three pictures - one of the stamped info. and one each of the ends of the balances. Can you provide me with replacement balances?

Thanks for posting, Bob! Before we can offer an applicable replacement for your channel balances, we just need to know a bit more information regarding your bottom shoe. Please refer to the chart below and pick out which shoe's measurement most closely matches your own hardware. Keep in mind that while a fraction of an inch difference may not seem like much, it is actually fairly important to your balance's operation. We recommend that you get as exact a measurement as possible.

A quick learner from Clearwater, FL says:
My bottom shoe does not have wings and is 1 1/8" long. Therefore, it would appear that I need the 15-001 attachment. Could you tell me how I would go about getting this replacement balance?

Thank you! With a balance with a winged top attachment and non-winged bottom shoe, you will need S395-24 with the 2340 option.

Paul,

My top attachment doesn't have wings either. I thought you knew this because you only asked for additional information about my bottom shoe in your original response. Now you're stating that because I have a winged top attachment (which I don't) and a non-winged bottom shoe I need a custom made balance. Please confirm what I need with both top and bottom non-winged.

I apologize. However, looking at your pictures, it does appear that your top attachment has wings. I can see a plastic tab poking out near the top of your channel. Please take a look at our 19-005, which I believe is what you have. Does this match your existing top attachment? If not, can you perhaps take a few more pictures of the attachment to confirm?
