Kinco channel balancers

A home owner from Tampa says:
I have Kinco make single hung Aluminium Windows in my Highland home in Tampa.

Some of the channel balancers have gone bad due to breakage of plastic top and bottom clips.

I tried to find out suitable replacement balancers from your online catalogue but not sure of the match.

Details of my existing channels are as under.
Width: 1/2"
Length: 30"
Marking : 29 9 MBS1
Sash weight: 31 lbs.

Quantity required 6 nos.

Please confirm the availability of suitable replacement and the rates etc as early as possible

Hi Lakhotia,
Thanks for sending detailed photos.

The balance top is 19-005 and the shoe is 15-004 which is our series 385 replacement balance.
A 30" non-tilt channel balance with stamp option 2950 will carry a window sash weight range of 28 through 32 pounds.

Order S385-30 with the option 2950.

The stamp option information is based on 2 balances per sash. Balances are designed assuming friction in the jamb weather-strip will carry a portion of the sash weight. Suggested sash weights are approximate.
