SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Channel Balances, Sash Locks, and Take-out Clips.

A home owner from Laguna Niguel, California says:
Hello Swisco Staff:

I wish to replace a number of non-tilt channel balances. Using your online catalog, I have tried to identify the replacement balances, but I need your help, please, to be sure I get the correct item.
I am also interested in knowing whether you offer replacement pivoting sash locks for my windows.
Also, in your guide called Installing and Removing Channel Balances it says, pop the take-out clips on both sides. It appears as though these should be part of the frame or installed in the frame, but my windows do not have these clips. Can I use your take-out clips, # 16-002? How are these installed?

Thank you for your help with my questions regarding channel balances, sash locks, and take-out clips.

It looks like you could use the Swisco Series 350-34 Channel Balance as a replacement. The stamp option will be 3330.

And yes, the 16-002 take out clips should work with your application.
