Window Channel Balance

A quick learner from CA says:
Hi there - I have a window channel balance that needs replacing, stamped "25 5 CQ Caldwell". It is 26" long, 5/8" wide when measured on the open side, 1/2" wide when measured on the closed side, and 9/16" deep. This is for a 46 inch wide window. What item do I need? Thanks!

Thanks for posting. Sounds like you have a 26" block & tackle balance with a stamp option of 2550. I'm afraid that's all I can tell based on your information, though. Now you just need to pick out the top and bottom fittings in order to determine the Series.

I recommend that you look at our Channel Balance Home Page and follow the steps in order to find the Series that best matches what you have.

It looks like I've got 19-005 on top. It's difficult for me to tell the difference between 15-005 and 15-004. Can you clarify? I can send pics later if needed.

Sure, the difference is their size. Specifically, their depth. It's a subtle difference, so pictures wouldn't help too much. You will need to measure your shoe as accurately as you can and use your best judgement.
