channel balance and balance hardware

A quick learner from Streamwood IL says:
i need to replace the channel balance in several windows. Please see attached photos. All of my windows have the balance 283088081P which is 29 inches. Looks like someone replace 2 of them in two separate windows with the 274000H which is only 28 inches.I don't know the brand of windows but I watched your video on the 2740 and it looks just like the ones I have.I also need the clip with the screw that keeps the channel in place when the window is down. I think it as called a sash guide. Please help me..

Thanks for posting. Concerning the balances, the one with the black shoe resembles our S350-29 with a 2830 option, while the other looks like our S351-28 with a 2740 option. For the top sash guide, look at our 18-069.

Awesome, I'm glad the balance worked out. As for this roller, how about our 84-062? This looks pretty close, but just make sure the tail is the same. Not so sure about that screw though. I would check a local hardware store, they may have something for it.
