Window balance replacement

A home owner from Whittier, CA says:
Could you please recommend the correct channel balance. I have not been able to find a top guide that matches mine. I will also need replacement take out clips as my windows do not have any. Thanks a lot!

Hey, thanks for posting. I've narrowed this down to two possible channel balance Series: either our Series 380 or our Series 385 balances.

Now, as you can see, there is only one difference between these two Series, and that is their bottom shoe. The Series 380 uses the 15-005 while the Series 385 uses the 15-004. 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.
15-004 and 15-005
