Channel balance for Caradco window

A home owner from Foxboro, MA says:
Hi:
We have a caradco windows in our home.
One window has a broken channel balance. The bottom hole that accepts the window pin broke off (near #10 in the picture).
Is this something you can replace?

Thanks,

Bob

It looks like a perfect match.
Thank you for the prompt reply.
I've placed an order for 4 (in case I have trouble with the install).
If you could point me to instructions and/or a video of how to actually replace the part, I'd appreciate it.
Again, thanks so much.

Great! Glad it's a match. You can check out this old discussion for an idea of what you're in for when you try to reinstall this shoe. It's not easy, and you may want the help of a local professional. See that discussion for more details and a possible alternative, if riskier, solution.
