Hello. Thanks for posting. This part looks like our 15-195 shoe. Is this all that's broken on your balance? If so, you could just replace this and re-use the balance itself. These just pop right on the end of the metal channel.

If you do need an entirely new balance, see our S795-28. I believe this is what you have. Keep in mind that these install at the top using a screw clip, not a hook. If yours has a hook, let me know!

Installing this balance is actually very easy. Check out the video below; the balance featured is actually different, but the principle is the same.
