How to install the shoes

A home owner from NJ says:
How do I install 19-008 & 15-025 top/bottom shoes into my channel balance. Specifically, what kind of rivet (part number?) do I need? Also is your rivet tool (show on your diy page for small rivets)work for this application? Thanks! Dave

Donna from SWISCO responded:
The 15-025 is first inserted into the channel balance
Next, drilled for a rivet, we use a drill press but you can use a hand drill with 75-502 drill bit,
Then the 62-005 rivet is inserted and stamped with the 75-075 tool.

The 19-008 is installed in the same way.

For more information about this installation process, take a look at the following guide: Balance Accessory Replacement Guide

Also, if we do not have balance series pre-made with the top and shoe you want, you can custom order a complete balance. A custom ordered balance will come with the top and shoe pre-attached.
