SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Single Hung Window Channel Balance

A quick learner from yountville ca says:
My windows open easy, but very hard to close.
The number on the balance is 27-4-HQ Caldwell.
Are these adjustable or do they need to be replaced?
What is the replacement part?
Thanks

Thanks for posting. I'm afraid these balances cannot be adjusted, so you will need new ones if they're broken. Based on your information, it sounds like you have a 28" block & tackle balance with a stamp option of 2740. I'm afraid that's all I can tell based on your information, though. Now you just need to pick out the top and bottom fittings in order to determine the Series.

I recommend that you look at our Channel Balance Home Page and follow the steps in order to find the Series that best matches what you have.
