Thank you for posting! Check out our S385-28. Could this be a possible match? Make sure to carefully compare the dimensions between the bottom shoe, 15-004, and your own. Let me know what you think.
A home owner from Sacramento says:
S385-28 appears to be the match! Bottom did measure a little more than an inch. Thanks for the help!

Not a problem! Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks Tom! I weighed and its coming in around 18.5 Pounds. Should I go with 2730 or 2740? I can't make it out from the original stamping. You guys are awesome in providing such a quick response and great guidance for us novices.

Hey, it's our pleasure. This kind of window repair isn't hard, you just need to know where to start!

It was a good idea to weigh your sash. I agree with you, I think our 2730 might be a better choice. Were your windows harder to operate before with the 2740-equivalent strength?
A quick learner from Sacramento says:
Hi Tom, it felt a little tight for sure. Will order 2730s today. Many thanks.
A home owner from Sacramento says:
Got my window balances and installation was a snap. It was a perfect fit! Many thanks for your help and guidance, Tom!
