Thanks for posting! I can't really tell what you have based only on this information. Check out our Channel Balance Home Page and follow the steps shown in order to find what balance Series you have.

Great! These help a lot. We're one step closer to determining what you need. I recognize the top attachment, so we just need to figure out what that bottom shoe is so that we can identify the Series. 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?
A quick learner says:
15-004. 1 3/32

In that case, check out our S385-33 balance with a 3250 option. Does everything match up? What do you think?
