Channel balance and top sash guide

A handy person from Camp hill says:
Looking for replacement channel balance lengths 17 in and 23 in. Bottom shoe is 1"x1"x1/2". Top part is 1 1/4"x 1/2.

Also need replacement top sash guide

Top sash guide is 1 3/4" long, widest top part is 7/8".

For the top sash guide, see if our 18-032 is a match. I also recommend our Series 390 channel balance. Make sure to carefully compare our dimensions to your own hardware in both cases.
A quick learner says:
I see the only difference in the 390 and 351 series is that the bottom shoe is 1/8" wider in the 390. Mine measures 1". Will I have any problems if I go with the 390 and the shoe is an 1/8" wider than what I had?

Ah, I see. Do you mean the depth? If so, then you might want to consider the Series 351 instead. This one uses out 15-002 shoe, which has a depth of 1", not 1-1/8".
A quick learner says:
Whoops....yes I did mean depth. Ok great. Thank you for your help.
