Hey, James. At first glance, this seems like a pretty typical balance. However, that bottom shoe looks like it might be a little thicker than normal. Before I suggest anything, I just want you to look at our 15-001 and 15-002 and see if either of these match your own shoe.

1" the 15-02 will work
we need 90 of them asap for a commercial repair job.

Are you sure the 15-002 will work? The depth on your bottom shoe looks extreme. Just by eyeballing it, I would think that the 15-001 is closer, though even that might be too small.

It would end up being between the Series 351 and Series 390 channel balances, but like I said I don't think we'll have anything as thick as your existing shoe. Let me know what you think.

See picture of existing ends. We need 90 pcs. ASAP, Do you have them in stock?

Oh, wow, that shoe looks totally different. In that case, I think our Series 351 looks like a pretty good match.

Was the shoe in the first picture from a different window? Are all the attachments for each window identical?
