Caldwell Channel Balance Replacement

A home owner from Ramona, CA says:

I am trying to replace a 14 yr old Caldwell channel balance and I need your help please? Picture# 1087 shows the part# printed on the channel. The other pictures show the top and bottom clips. Here are my measurements:

Channel (metal portion only) 28" Long
Channel (total length from clip to clip) 29" Long
Channel back 1/2" Wide
Channel front (spring side) 11/16" outer diameter, 9/16" inner diameter
Channel depth is 11/16" including the lip on the edge

Bottom clip is 1-1/8" wide from front to back of channel by 1-1/16" tall measuring the from top to bottom of front protruding nubs. Could not get a width as one tab is broken off.

Top clip is 1-1/4" tall by 15/16" wide across tab to tab and 13/16" from front of channel to back of clip.

The section of window that the channels fit onto is 28" tall by 48" wide. This is a non-tilt window.

I also need the little metal clip that pops up to catch and hold the channel balance spring, as it collapsed when I slid the window up. I do not know how much the window weighs, but my fingers can tell you it was very heavy when it came crashing down on them!

I hope all of my measurements help, let me know if you need more information and please let me know as soon as possible as I have the window just sitting in the sill. Thank you so much for your help.

Sincerely, Robin

Thanks for posting, Robin. We will be able to help you.

Now, looking at these images and with your dimensions in mind, I think you have our 19-005 top attachment and 15-001 bottom attachment. Do you agree? If so, order the S395-28 balance with the 2750 option.

As for the metal clips, check out our 16-002. Let me know if you have any other questions.
