Window Balance needed

A home owner from The Villages, FL says:
I need a total of 6 of the window balancer. It is stamped on the metal "2330". The width appears to be 9/16". Length is 24"

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

Now, as you can see, the only difference between these two Series 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.

A home owner from The Villages, FL says:
I have measured the bottom shoe and it is slightly larger than 1-1/16" certainly not 1", but perhaps work from the original 1-1/8".
Not sure what the function is of this shoe or your recommendation as to use the 15-001 or the 15-002.

Ah, yes. I think the 15-001 is the way to go. Sometimes shoes wear down a little over time. With that in mind I think our Series 390 is the best option to consider.
