Millard 26b channel balance replacement

A home owner from Sugar grove Illinois says:
I have a Millard window channel balance that needs to be replaced. It's stamped with a 26B. I looked through your site and see that the 795 looks close to identical (at least on the bottom...the top needs to have a small clip and the 795 seems to have a ring). The whole piece measures 26 3/4" from end to end.

Am I on the right track ordering the 795? If so, what size? Thanks for your help in advance.

The manufacturer of your balance has gone out of business, but we can help you. You would need a new S795-26 channel balance but with a 15-198 hook specially attached. We can custom make this for you, if you wish. I would just need to know how many you need.

Sure, thanks! I really appreciate the quick response. I'd like to take 2. How would I order? Are there instructions for installation?

Great! Ordering is very easy. I'm going to email you a special link to this part, along with a price quote, that will allow you to add it to your cart as if it were any other standard item. You can then checkout as normal. We'll send it shortly after posting this, so keep an eye on your inbox.

Installation is also easy. Watch the video below; the specific balance featured is different, but the principle remains the same. The only difference is the way it installs at the top. We screw ours in, but all you'll have to do is clip the hook in the appropriate hole.

Perfect. Balances in and it only took about 5 minutes. I appreciate the product, the help and the timely responses.
