Hello, Connie. I believe we can make this balance for you, though it will need to be a custom order. Before we begin, I'd like you to review the components I plan on using. We would be using our S770-33 channel balance, but with the bottom clip swapped out for a 62-105 hook. We would also attach a 62-005 rivet at the top, the same as how you have yours, instead of the white nylon screw-way that comes with the S770-33. Does this setup look like it can work for you? If so, let me know how many you need and we can send you a custom order form and price quote.

Thanks for the quick reply. What you're wanting to build sounds right but I'm new to this so I'm really not sure. What will one cost? Thanks, Connie

Hey, Connie. Just to ballpark, the price will be similar to the S770-33, but a little more. In order to say for sure I will need to know how many you're interested in. I can then send you an order form and price quote to review.
A home owner from Myrtle Beach SC says:
Yes please send me the order form. I definately need 3. Only 1 broke from 3 different windows. Do I need to replace both on each window?
I would be ordering 3.

Sure, I'll send the order form/price quote for 3. Honestly, we usually always recommend replacing both balances on each window. That would make sure the new balance doesn't work twice as hard to make up for the old one's performance. That said, it's up to you. If you would like me to alter your order form so that we send you 6 instead, let me know. The price would be the same in this instance, though shipping would differ.
