Hi, I need to replace my non-tilt window balance.

Here is the info: Non-tilt window, 1/2' channel width, 27' length for the metal part only. Some numbers I find on the balance: 86 26-4 HA5 CMC 1.

Could you please identify what parts I need for the replacement. Thanks a lot.

Thanks for posting. Before we can begin, I'll have to figure out what your bottom shoe is. Please look at the measurements for our 15-001 and 15-002 bottom shoes and note their depths. As you can see, they are 1-1/8" deep and 1" deep, respectively. Which measurement more closely resembles your own shoe?

Tom,
My measurement is a little over 1 1/16", but considering the edges were worn out slightly, I'd say it's closer to 1 1/8". Thanks much and please give me a quote for two.

Thanks, TC! I agree, it's probably just worn down a little from 1-1/8". Check out S395-27 with the option 2640. Let me know if you need any further help.
