Thanks for posting. Sounds like you have a 27" block & tackle balance with a stamp option of 2640. I'm afraid that's all I can tell based on your information, though. Now you just need to pick out the top and bottom fittings in order to determine the Series.

I recommend that you look at our Channel Balance Home Page and follow the steps in order to find the Series that best matches what you have.
A home owner from San Antonio says:
I'm sorry. I should've been more specific. I have a broken non-tilt window channel. The metal part measures 28" long and 1/2" (9/16") wide. The only visible markings are on the back -- "27 4 BX CMC 7".

The best I can tell is the top fitting looks like your part "19-005".

The bottom fitting looks like either "15-001", "15-002", or "15-003". The depth of my bottom fitting measures 1 3/16".

Your Series 395 looks the closest to mine, but I don't know the depth dimension of the bottom fitting "15-001".

Thank you.

Correction. The depth of the bottom fitting is 1 3/32".

If the depth of your bottom fitting is 1-3/32", then our 15-001 is likely the right match. I would agree to start with our Series 395 channel balance.
A home owner from San Antonio says:
I want to give you a feedback.

I ordered two channel balance to replace both. The upper and lower fittings were essentially identical in depth even though the "shape" of the lower fitting was slightly different.

The package arrived quickly and well packaged. Your shipping cost was also the most reasonable of the suppliers I researched online. You responded to my questions promptly.

The fit was about as perfect as I could've hoped. The replacement processes couldn't have been simpler after watching a few YouTube videos.

I am very pleased. I will use you again in the future.
