Thanks for posting! Before I can offer an applicable replacement for this channel balance, I just need to know a bit more information about the bottom attachment. Please take a look at our 15-004 and 15-005 channel balance shoes, and note their depths. As you can see, they are 1-3/32" deep and 1" deep, respectively. Which one more closely matches your own bottom attachment?

Thank you! in that case, please see our S380-30 channel balance. Does that look about right? Let me know what you think!
A home owner from Tallahassee, FL says:
Yes it does. What about the stamp option? The current one I have has 29 6 on the metal part.

If your stamp reads 29 6, then I think 2960 would be the best option to choose. Check out its weight rating. Does your sash weight fall within that range?
A home owner from Tallahassee, Fl says:
I took the SASH out and weighed it. It weights 33 pounds. I plan on replacing them all, 10 windows, so I want to make sure I get it correct
