A distributor from Grayslake says:
i tried to use your 15-194 and 15-195, but it does not work on my balance. What do you recommend?
Thank you,

Thanks for posting! Sorry for the trouble. You have an older type of shoe that is incompatible with the 15-194 and 15-195. The difference is that the "stem" of your shoe has a groove in it to accommodate a similar groove on the metal channel of the balance itself.

This older type of hardware is no longer made, unfortunately. Manufacturers decided that the groove in question was no longer necessary and began making balances without it. The only solution available these days is replacing the entire balance system with our Series 795 channel balance. I am sorry we cannot offer an easier solution.
