SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Window sash support balance identification request...

A handy person from las vegas says:

I have an older home (build in the mid-to-late 1980's) and I am looking to replace all the channel balances. The windows are "non-tilt", the channel balances are width 1/2" with length 29". There is an identification mark stamped on these channel balances that reads: "2830K B.S.I." (please notice the letter "K" stamped at the end of the number). Is it possible to assist me with this request or do I need to supply additional information (such as pictures)? Thank you.

Kind Regards,

Thanks for posting. Sounds like you have a 29" block & tackle balance with a stamp option of 2830. 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.
