Traco Window Balance

A home owner from Coral Springs, FL says:
I'm looking to repair/replace a window balance in one of our windows. Part of the block and tackle pulley broke. I've included a link to photo's of the part that needs replacement.

User submitted a photo of a window balance.
A customer submitted image of their channel balance attachment.

Thank you for posting. This looks like an 18" channel balance with a 19-041 top attachment and 15-004 bottom attachment. Review these parts and let me know if you agree. If so, then we can make this balance for you. I just need you to also tell me the weight of your window sash. That will helps us determine the appropriate strength spring. Thanks!
A quick learner from Coral Springs, FL says:
Yes, 18" is correct. The 19-041 matches perfectly, but the 15-005 is the other one. As for sash weight, it's 19.2 lbs.

Fantastic. Check out this Channel Balance Request Form that I've started for you and review the information. I have selected the 1750 option. Two balances with this stamp option can carry a window sash weight of 17 through 20 pounds.

Once you've filled out and submitted the rest of the information, one of our representatives will get back to you shortly thereafter with a price quote and an item to add to your cart.
