Replacing Channel balance

A quick learner from Lincoln Ca says:
I have a channel balance for a non-tilting window with the following markings:

25 5 cx cmc 11

It is a 1/2 inch in width and 25 inches long. I have attached 4 photos which I hope will help you identify it. Thanks.

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?

Hello, 15-005, one inch deep looks closest. Thanks.

Thanks for getting back to us! In that case, check out our Series 380 channel balance. Does that look like a good replacement? Let me know what you think.

Yes, it sure does.
