Window Balance

A handy person from Concord, Ca says:
I need to order a few window balances. The balance pictured is 27 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. The only writing stamped on it is 2630.

I see many different 1/2 wide channel balances but the different series, plastic tops, and shoes I'm not sure which specific model to order.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hey, thanks for posting. I've narrowed this down to two possible channel balance Series: either our Series 351 or our Series 390 balances.

Now, as you can see, there is only one difference between these two Series, and that is their bottom shoe. The Series 351 uses the 15-002 while the Series 390 uses the 15-001. I can't quite tell what you have based on your pictures, though. Please carefully compare their dimensions to your own hardware and see which is a better match.
