I'm not sure exactly what this is. Can you give me the height of the balance? Can you also confirm the length of the metal channel? Finally, could I see a clearer picture of the metal clip that hooks into the shoe?

As for the shoe itself, I think our 15-212 might be a match. This is 15/16" wide and 3/8" thick. Does that match yours?
A home owner from Atlanta Area says:
Hi Paul....

Thank you so much helping me! These people buying my house insist on this being fixed (trying to do this myself to save money.)
YES, the 3/8" thick and 15/16" wide matches mine and the length of the metal is 35".
When you asked for the height of the balance do you mean the whole length of the window track?
Am going try to upload a better pic of the metal clip.
Let me know if you need more and THANKS!!

Thank you! Yes, I think our 15-212 can work based on your dimensions. As for the balance, you gave the length as 35" and width as 7/16", but what is the height of the metal channel?
A home owner from Alpharetta,GA says:
Hey Again, Paul....

I am thinking you are asking for the complete measurement of the metal window channel (top to bottom of the window?)
It measures 71 inches.
Thank you.....

Paul from SWISCO responded:
No, I'm sorry. I need all the dimensions of the metal channel for the balance. You only gave the length and width, but I also need the height. You could also consider it the depth. It's the only measurement of the metal channel that you haven't given. I just need to know if it's 7/16" square or if the height/depth is different. I apologize for the confusion.
A home owner from Alpharetta,GA says:
Oh!
I got it. I understand. It's also 7/16ths.... :)

So should I go ahead and place my order? I feel we
have narrowed it to a good choice.

Thanks for everything Paul!

Thank you for your patience. We can custom make this balance for you, though we can only supply the metal channel. You will need to reuse your "Y" attachment at the top. You would install it on our custom made balance with a 62-004 rivet. Would this solution work for you?

I have emailed you a custom balance ordering form, which you should be receiving shortly. Keep an eye on your inbox!

Thank you, Tom....
Do I also need to order that 'shoe-part' separately?
Or does your custom made balance include the shoe?
Thanks

I believe Paul mentioned above that our 15-212 shoe could work as a possible replacement, based on your pictures and dimensions. This does not come with the balance but it can be added to the same order.
