A handy person from Columbia SC says:
I need a new balance with the tilt latch shown. The numbers on the balance is "29B BSI RS". Pictures of the latch are shown.

Thanks for posting. I recognize this balance. We might be able to help, but it will have to be custom made. If you can, please show me a picture of the top end of the balance. That will be a huge help. Can you also tell me how many you need?
A handy person from Columbia SC says:
I only need 2...a right and left to replace ones that are damaged.

I've attached picture of the top of the balance from each side.

Huh, looks like it has both a rivet and screw hole. Does this screw into the jamb or does it attach with a clip or hook?
A handy person from Columbia Sc says:
Screw

Thank you. Sorry for the wait, we just had to do a bit more research. Fortunately, we have all the information we need to get started. I will send you a custom product link for two of these balances that you can add to your cart. Keep in mind, however, that you will have to drill a hole at the top of the balance in order for this to install in your window. Your balance is not typically made with a screw hole like that. I suspect the original installers drilled that hole to install, so you will have to do the same.
