Thanks for posting. This looks like it could be an older version of our Series 795 channel balance, but there are a few details you may want to confirm before you order anything, just to be sure. Some of these older types have variations that aren't compatible with the standard Series 795 configuration, and may need to be custom made.

First, what is the width of the bottom "T" shoe? You should remove the balance from the window before you measure to confirm. Also, how does it attach at the top? Do you use a screw-on tab, or a hook? Finally, can you confirm the length of the metal channel?
