Sash Windows Channel Balances

A home owner from Carlsbad, CA says:
Hi,

I need to purchase 4 complete channel balance assemblies for each size listed below to include the plastic tips.

I could only upload 5 photos and I'll have to send the other 3 photos since one end of the balance assembly is different.

1. Imprint says 33-9 FA2 CMC 6 and measures 34" on the metal portion only.
2. Imprint says 32-4 and measures 33" on the metal portion only.

Please see our Series 385 channel balance. This appears to be a good match.

Hi Paul,

The 33-9 FA2 CMC 6 that measures 34" on the metal portion only window weighs 34.6 lbs so that is over the highest weight on the Series 385. What do I order for those windows?

Thanks,

Lynn

Ah, thank you for clarifying. We could custom make that balance for you, if you wish. Can you just confirm that you only need four? If so, I'll send you a custom part and price quote.

Hi Tom,
I'll take 6 of the custom channel balances. That will fix 3 complete windows. I need to add some different size channel balances to the order. How can I do this so I don't pay for extra shipping?
Thanks,
Lynn
PS please tell me how much each one will be

Sure, I've just emailed you a custom product link for 6 of these. This includes a price quote. You can use this link to place the special product in your cart, and from there you can continue shopping as normal.
