Window Channel Balance

A handy person from Murrieta, CA says:
The existing channel says the following- 33 5 cq caldwell

However, I was told at the local hardware store that I needed a 34" and also needed to know the weight of the window which is approx 37 lbs.

Thanks for posting! Before I can offer an applicable replacement for this channel balance, I just need to know a bit more information about the bottom attachment. Please take a look at our 15-004 and 15-005 channel balance shoes, and note their depths. As you can see, they are 1-3/32" deep and 1" deep, respectively. Which one more closely matches your own bottom attachment?

I measured the original one is 1" 15-005

Thank You

Thank you. In that case, please take a look at our S380-34 channel balance with a 3350 stamp option and let me know what you think!
