Good morning, Mark. Thanks for posting. Can you please confirm the weight of your window sash? 50 pounds is a lot for a 22" channel balance. Can you also confirm how many balances are used for each sash? I would also like to know how many springs are in each channel. If your sash is, indeed, that heavy, then we may be working with a custom set up, and I will need more information.
A home owner from FT. MYERS FL. says:
this is a heavy window and the spring looks to be a double spring. a spring inside of a spring. and channel on each side of the window of course.

Thank you for your patience in this matter. We may have found a possible match, we just need a little bit more information. Can you please send me a few pictures of the clip at the end of the pulley string? That should be the last thing we need. Thank you!
