I am trying to find replacement channel balances for my windows, but do not know which ones to buy. Attached are pictures of the channel balances I need to replace. Please advise.

Thx,

The windows were manufactured by Clearview Windows from Santa Clarita, CA. Clearview is now out of business. I don't know if Clearview is the original manufacturer or outsourced them to someone like Champion. Thank you for your help.

Thanks for posting. Before we can offer an applicable replacement balance, we need a bit more information regarding your bottom shoe.

First, what is the length of your metal channel, in inches?

Next, please refer to the following chart and pick out your show from the examples shown. Keep in mind that although the difference of a fraction of an inch may not seem like much, it is in fact vital to the operation of your balance. Please get as exact a measurement as you can before deciding which shoe you have.

After measuring the attachment it appears to be 15-004. It definitely has wings and is slightly over an inch in width, but not 1 1/8.
A quick learner from Thousand Oaks says:
The length of the metal channel is just under 27" (26 7/8 or 26 15/16). The measurement was taken on the side of the balance. The bottom plastic attachment (i believe is 15-004) fits within the metal channel.

Thank you for specifying. Please take a look at our S385-27 with a 2650 stamp option and see what you think.
