hinge chanel balances

A quick learner from north east, md says:
balances have 1940z stamped on them. came out of an aluminum single hung window. they are not tilt. but they hinge outward to clean instead of tilting out. right side comes out. was curious do you carry parts for this series window? because i also need the hinges for one of the sashes.

thanks

Thanks for posting, Chris. Hinge window balances are a little weird, and I'll need you to confirm a few things before I can recommend anything.

First, look at our 19-008 top attachment and 15-025 shoe. Are these the same nylon attachments on your own balances? If so, you may notice that the 15-025 shoe is missing on one of the balances. This is normal, and it means I'm on the right track!

Both balances may have two different stamps. Looking at the balance with a shoe and the balance without the shoe, what does the stamp read for each one? Which is the 1940 stamp for?

As for the hinge, see our 15-058 and see if this can work for you. I've also related some other parts that you may be interested in, which you can see on the right hand side of this page.

Paul, yes you are definitely on the right track. thats the exact nylons on my balances. now the 1940 is stamped on the balance without the shoe, and 1920 is stamped on balance with shoe. thanks alot buddy. can i buy these balances as a set for each window? i need for 3 windows. the balance itself is 20 1/16"
