SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Window channel balance photos

A quick learner from Jacksonville Florida says:
I need to order replacement channel balances for NuAir windows.

The number on the balance is: 29 5 GW CMC 7
The large plastic clip is greater than 1 inch wide (1 and 1/16 inches)
The length is 30 inches.

I also need 2 take out clips.
And, I need the plastic guides.

Please let me know if you need additional photos.

P.s. I also need channel balances for Kinco windows. I'll send a second request due to the photo limit of 5 pictures..

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

Now, as you can see, the only difference between these two Series 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
As for the top sash guide, see our 18-178.
A quick learner from Jacksonville, Florida says:
15-004 has the exact dimensions of the one I have measured.

The top sash guide 18-178 looks like the right one. I don't have the complete guide with me to measure but it looks like it is the same.
These NuAir windows are from my mothers house and she lives 40 miles away. I had to use the broken guide to put her window back in.

Hope this helps.
I will need 4 balances, 4 guides, and the metal clip used to remove the balances.

I have placed 2 separate orders, one for Kinco windows and this one. When we finally figure this out, can you ship them togetherness?

Great, glad we were able to help. However, if they are two separate orders, they will not be shipped in the same package. You may want to cancel them and then place everything as one order.
