channel replacement assistance needed

A home owner from Bend, Oregon says:

Can you help identify the channel balance replacement part?

The one I have is 26" long exluding the end pieces. Photos of the end pieces are included, along with a photo of the code printed on the channel.

Many thanks,

Hello, Barbara. Based on your pictures, I recommend our S395-26 with a 2550 option. See what you think!

Thank you Paul. What is a 2550 option? I can't seem to find a photo of this.

The 2550 option is not a separate part, it's an aspect of the S395-26 channel balance. All channel balances have these stamp options which indicate the strength of the spring. When you're selecting the option for the S395-26, you're essentially telling us how you want the spring to be calibrated. Specifically, two balances with a 2550 option, working together, can carry a sash weight of 25 through 28 pounds. We have more information on the S395-26 store page, as well.
