channel balance 86 20-2 DA5 CMC 2

A contractor from Tustin CA says:
I am trying to replace this part. The code on the back is 86 20-2 DA5 CMC 2. The window is 9 pounds. It is 1/2 inches wide and 20 15/16 inches long. Can you tell me which part would work from your site?

Thank you,

Thanks for posting! Before I can offer an applicable replacement for this channel balance, I just need to know a bit more information about the bottom attachment. Please take a look at our 15-004 and 15-005 channel balance shoes, and note their depths. As you can see, they are 1-3/32" deep and 1" deep, respectively. Which one more closely matches your own bottom attachment?

Ours is the 1-3/32" deep one. We need the enitre thing.

Thanks for getting back to us, Tamela. In that case, I recommend that you take a look at our S385-21 channel balance. Does that look about right? Let me know what you think.
