Thank you for posting your images.

Can you give us the length of the metal portion of the channel balance only? Also, are there any stamps on your balance?
A home owner from Greenville Texas says:
The metal channel length is 28 inches.
On closer examination I found some indentations.

Can you please tell me if the attachment shown in the middle image has wings on them? To get an idea of what I'm referring to, take a look at the 15-004 and 15-005 balance attachments and see if you can determine which one you have.
A home owner from Greenville Texas says:
Mike
I really appreciate your help.
I drilled out the rivets to see the plastic parts better. One is # 19-005.
I can not tell the difference in 15-001 & 15-002 on the web page. Mine looks very much like either of them. This fitting has a # 4 molded into the part.

The 15-001 Channel Balance Shoe is a little bigger, with a length of 1 1/8", while the 15-002 has a length of only 1". Do either of these match the measurements of your shoe?
A handy person from Greenville Texas says:
Mike
Measuring the shoe parallel with the narrow slot, measurement is 1 1/8.
Measuring perpendicular to the narrow slot, measurement is 1 1/8.
Measuring from the pointed tips across the slot at a slight angle to the largest base of the shoe is exactly 1 inch.
Hope this helps.

My error on the recent post. those first two dimensions were only 1 1/16 not 1 1/8. Sorry for the error.

Mike from SWISCO responded:
Sorry Warren, I'm not sure where you're measuring from. Can you submit a picture of your measurement?

Can you tell which one matches our original? Either the 15-001 or 15-002?
A handy person from Greenville Texas says:
Mike
If we go by the coloring in your photos we have 15-002 as our has a beige tint rather than white.
The enclosed photos show direction only as the actual dimensions on a metal scale are 1 1/16 for the first photo and 1 inch for the second.

Alright Warren, we're good to go.

You need to order our S395-28 window balance with the 2730 option.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
